Paradise on the horizon

Switzerland is indeed a very small country. I am living at the road with the most traffic in the entire town, but even from my balcony above this grey desert I can see – on a good day, of course – the mountains glowing on the horizon. Is it this proximity and constant awareness of the wilderness out there that makes us Swiss people that protective of everything we own and fear to loose?
