    Because we don't have a job, we must spend our free time somewhere?

You obviously don't know what a shit hole most of the West is starting to become. I don't see them being far from most of the struggling world in the coming decades.
    I know USA is different. I'm talking about Western Europe, especially Scandinavia.

    Right, it is sad, I think it would be a no scenario on the west. Some very educated people living on streets

    I don't think that is only reason. I think EU actually helps with investing.

    Our problem is Kosovo and RS in terms that I believe many government money goes for help there. That costs other countries of region don't have.

    Its not Balkan member overrated (few active from each countries) its just lack of members from other countries, 1 or 2 only active. Reddit is much more popular than TA in these countries compared to Balkan.

    I don't think it is problem to help our brothers and sisters in Kosovo and Republika Srpska.
    Serbs west from Drina river gave a lot contribution to Serbia, and they deserve help. Same as Kosovo Serbs who live in very difficult situation.

    It isn't problem. I'm just mentioning that as unusual cost for this country which others don't have.

Even that 50 euros you may get only after probably few months of proving to government you don't have job or other source of income. Westerners are too much soft...
    No one dies of hunger anywhere except India or Africa. Going broke here is a nightmare. You live with just the basic amount of money to buy food and nothing else. You can barely buy new clothes. And here, you can't expect to get much help from your relatives (especially in Sweden). You need to work hard to have a minimally decent living here, just like everywhere else.

    Taxes are punitive here, too. You can't become rich in Sweden. You are an eternal cash cow for the government, even if the living standards are slightly better.
