What is it about the people in Paris that makes them so watchable?

United States of America STEPHAN, United States of America

They are elegant and walk the streets gracefully, respectfully, considerate and kind and capable of maintaining a great atmosphere on the streets, without needing a police presence (with screaming sirens and attitude like in the USA), but being able to exist and co-exist on the streets in such a way that everyone is respected and treated politely and kindly. The main purpose of the police in Paris, seems to be merely to be helpful and supporting and friendly, helping citizens to park their cars or guiding elderly people across busy streets - no aggression or anger. SO different from the police in the USA. It is as if American society cannot handle or maintain themselves in public unless there are cops everywhere, police alarms and sirens going off everywhere and all people are constantly treated like potential criminals. In Paris this does not exist. The French as well as the tourists and visitors who love Paris and France, know how to behave in the streets, during the day or late at night. There's a unspoken awareness and harmony amongst people which brings about a totally natural and genuine form of reacting and responding towards others around you. Etiquette of a high civilization.
