Americans are the best race thus far
« on: September 29, 2013, 05:05:31 am »
Americans have #1 best social location in the world.  The best opportunities of all people in the world and we have the best military.

Americans are generally English speakers as well, the most expressive language in the world!

Our customs are great too.  One arms distance from each other most of the time, handshakes, expressions, etc.

We basically bully each other to keep each other as top dogs in the worldly community.  Everywhere we go we get MAD respect.

Yeah.. I see no reason to even start debating on this because there's a shitload of pro and con arguments that it's way to tiring to get into.
Besides, Americans are essentially Europeans.

K so youve listed some negatives, but I don't see any of you posting what is more positive about your countries ^^.  You feel inferior to USA or what?

How do you make this claim?


This shows that, in the US (and UK), if you are born poor, you're greatly more likely to die poor.

Nearly on every dimension we consider positive, such as education, health care affordability, infrastructure, the US is getting further and further behind. One of the only things we are still relatively good at is median income.

I'd much rather have been born in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Sweden, etc etc.

Chakra, More people are on the waiting list to get into the US than any other country.

That's cool. Per capita we aren't near the top, though.


Per Capita, Libya and Qatar has over nine times more migrants than the US. Zimbabwe over six.

Most of the poor that become rich happen in the US.  http://www.businessinsider.com/formerly-homeless-people-who-became-famous-2012-6?op=1

There's more opportunity in the US to become RICH even if you're POOR :D.

So, Chakra, do you have an opinion of which is the best country or not?  If not then get out of the thread.

Your evidence of poor people becoming rich is an article that with 11 people? That's an entire 0.000035%!!! Such mobility!!!

In the US, your chance of success/failure (economically) is determined 50% by your parents' wealth. In Denmark it's 15%. You seriously think individuals have greater opportunity in the US?

Basically any north western European country is better than the US. For the sake of argument, though, I'll pick Iceland.

Iceland ranks 12th in Education (US 13th), 8th in inequality-adjusted HDI (US 16th), a perfect Freedom House ranking (same as US), 11th in corruption (US 19th), and 1st in peace (US 99th).

A terrorist country could squash Iceland easily.  Not much protection there.

Your argument that Iceland is better is invalid.  Their social location doesn't matter if it can't be protected efficiently ^^.

The US, though, can't be defeated :D

US is being defeated by Walmart and Goldman Sachs. You are a slave to your corporate overlords and think your military makes your country great. You feel that an Orwellian surveillance state is a good idea because of the invisible terrorist threat.

Military doesn't stop terrorism. Look at India. Look at Indonesia. Terrorism is caused by intolerance and corruption, something the US excels at.

The US isn't being attacked by those two institutions.

Your argument is invalid.
