What is the best country in the world to live in?


So, being an American, we are taught America is the greatest country in the world. And I used to believe it. But the more I learn about society and other countries, the less I believe it. Here’s a few points why.

•We are the biggest economy, yet still have a huge poverty rate.

•The amount of gun violence. I know a lot of people like to say “gang violence” There are plenty of unaffiliated perpetrators of gun violence. The term “gun violence” doesn’t mean that my gun got a mind of it’s own and started shooting. It means violence was committed with a gun. And it’s a cycle, the more guns we have, the more guns we need. I’m a 6’3 230 pound man who is very physically capable, but I can’t punch bullets. The mass shooter or criminal that’s 5’4 and 120 pounds with a gun will win, so now I need bone. So now I got a gun (which I do) to even the odds. Gun control is a double bladed sword. You keep guns out of the wrong people’s hands, but you also keep guns out of the right people’s hands, and restrictions can remove the fire power superiority of the good guys. Only solution at this point would violate the second amendment, destruction of every single fucking gun owned by EVERYBODY but law enforcement. And nobody would stand for that, not criminals, and not law abiding citizens. The result? Gun violence when the attempt is made. We pretty much check-mated ourselves here.

•We are the greatest military in the world. Best technology, most money invested, and one of the largest militaries. Might be the one true thing we got going for us. But keep in mind, after WW2… what war did we clearly win other than the first Persian Gulf war? And we had other militaries backing us, yet we still lost, or in politician language “Didn’t accomplish our military goals.” We call Russia weak for their performance against Ukraine, but how much better would America do? And we treat our veterans like complete shit as well.
