Liberalism versus Tolerance (aka Netherlands versus Italy)

A co-worker of mine, who's in the United States for three years doing Psych Research in my group, noted in a conversation that the Netherlands is Liberal but not tolerant, while Italy (where he's from) is tolerant but not liberal. He noted as an example that he once put some garbage in the wrong recycling bin and people were angry at him for about a week. Assuming he is correct, which is preferable for a place for you to live? This was in reference to a discussion about good places to live in Europe...
