“The ADA was super successful. This ensures there are ramps, elevators, braille, and options for everybody and ability everywhere. Even concerts have accessible entries and spaces to view from.” 

“Access for people with disabilities for sure. Safety considerations in public places such as old historic buildings. No smoking in restaurants. What we don’t do well is portion control and sugary diets.”

FREE WATER

“Especially the American private sector now rocks.”

“A lot of the research that goes into space today will be the technology for people in the coming years. US budget for space program in 2022 was $61B, followed by China at, $12B”

PUBLIC LANDS

“National Parks/public lands.”

“Agreed. The United States has the most diverse land in one country on the planet. And quite a bit of it is protected.”

FREE TOILETS

“Free toilets.

You’ll pay everywhere in Europe, and it is a two-sided sword. On the one hand, someone is motivated to keep the toilet in order; on the other hand, a lot of corners smell like urine, which is unbearable, especially in summer and in places where a lot of beer is drunk.

E.g., Czechia and Germany. The lovely medieval alleys of the old towns tend to acquire a nasty medieval smell if it hasn’t rained for a long time.”

FIREARM AVAILABILITY

“Firearm availability (for better or for worse).” 

GOOD FOOD

“Good food. Like seriously. Texas / Southern food is something else. Spices, butter, garlic, seafood. You guys have it all. Oh. Also dessert. I live in Korea. Their traditional dessert is like rice cakes, which are neither delicious nor visually appealing.”

NATIONAL PARKS

“National Parks. We had the luxury of having lots of land and not many people when we became a developed country, and some forward-thinking leaders decided to set aside some of the most beautiful places on the planet for all of the people.” 

MEDICAL RESEARCH

PAY FOR PROFESSIONALS

“Professional jobs in finance/accounting/law/engineering/tech. No other country pays anywhere near as well, and those jobs likely include health insurance, so that’s not an issue.”

QUALITY OF LIFE

“Scripted television. There are great shows from other countries, but it is hard to match the output of top-notch content coming from the USA, and a lot of this is thanks to good writers.”

LOVE FOR THE COUNTRY

“Loving their country and working hard as a nation to achieve big things. Military. As a Canadian, I’m jealous of these things. We have no backbone and aren’t united at all.”

FAST FOOD OPTIONS AND EASE

“Fast food. Yea, it’s usually unhealthy crap, but if you ever get a craving for something greasy and delicious, you have all the options in the world. Here we only got Mcdonald’s and KFC.”

SPACE EXPLORATION

“Space exploration. Arguable because it goes in cycles, and Russia got to space first. But America does a good job at space exploration.”

WEALTH EXTRACTION

“Marketing and wealth extraction. No other place on earth is as astute about identifying people who could use a lighter wallet and ensuring that happens.”
