Well schools are better you ask me, so is health care, they seem to live longer, food is healthier, and hell lot less crime. (easer to get a job, less unemployment.) A lot less religious crazies.

Now for Americas Perks. ummm... (Home of apple pie, baseball and american football.)
the right to own a hand gun. I like that right being a ex-cop from the Air Force. Great Hunting spots in the northern spots. (it may take a wile for me to think of more.) America really needs to get rid of the FCC.. And all the tax they spend on Stopping Drug that is more good for you than bad.


America isn't that bad........we have freedom

We have the allusion of freedom. Tell you the truth Many other countries are more free than we are, we let are government get to big, now they control every little aspect of are lives.

Asia is full of third world countries and you talk about Health Care? Most operations have to take place overseas in the first world countries. They live longer because they don't eat the same foods we do (step away from the fast food and you can live longer to!) Food is healthy here if you don't eat the unhealthy food (can't believe I had to point that out) And there isn't "less crime" In fact there are such big scale criminal acts against humanity that people have to flee to place's like...wait for it...AMERICA!

No, Asia is not just Japan, China, and South Korea. Place's like Vietnam, Cambodia, North Korea, Mongolia and shit exist to.

And there's a lot less religious crazies? I guess Tibet doesn't exist huh...


America Health care is rated 36th in the world out of 100 and that not pritty high taking account of all the third world countries out there

Check the states... America pur 10,000 people have 58.6 murders, Japan pur 10,000 people something like 1.1 murders.

I do think I was talking about Japan Not third world countries, can you even list 2 third world Asian countries?
Hate to tell you this but even Korea made it above third world states.

Yes America is one of the largest religious countries in the world. (Just watch the news you have lots of religious nuts there.)

'Japan does indeed have better health care than america. AT that life expectancy in the world America is 30th ranking, japan is #1!' (( http://www.cnn.com/2008/HEALTH/06/11/life.expectancy.ap/index.html ))


I love facts!

Wow I love how you just admitted to saying Asia is no other country then Japan.

Here you go Mr.Facts. http://www.nationsonline.org/oneworld/third_world.htm

Once again, Japan does not represent Asia as a hole. Of course I guess weeaboo's don't realize other countries exist over there huh...

"There are 50 countries listed in the United Nations comparative analysis of poverty,
34 African countries, 10 Asian countries, 5 Pacific Island Nations and one Caribbean nation."

You may be awesome at finding facts but I guess reading them is a whole different story.

That is son not true i don't knoe where you got your resources but that's not false the only reason why is because the reason why no one came to its rescue is probably becuase he might have been living alone, or something of the sort.

Oh, ps. The whole world know Americas not this fantasty land and all that but to indicate that were careless is far from the truth if someone were having a heart attck here in America i can assure you that their would be an ambulance on the way.

Yes its true there is sometimes where PEOPLE get hurt by the cops but not all of them are innocent, yeah they sometimes takes things too far but are you gonna tell me that you will never see something like that in Asia or even Australia.

One thing we know for sure about the differences in Asia compare to America is that the schools; more are expected of students in Asia which results in

Asia: suicidal rates amongs student has risen
America: not so much


Posted 12/22/08
listen to all u people. look, u.s and japan are two different countries so that mean two different culture. I mean sure japan have better schools and health care but american isn't just about violence and early pregnancies, there are more to american then that. Just look there are worster countries out there then the u.s

it is damn true and it was in a HOSPITAL waiting line althought I admit the normal citizens are good (most of them) it's the head people that are selfish and doesn't care about others just doing things they weill profit while not caring about others (ex:iraq) Asia have some bad sides too like more poverty.

I'm not sure how it is exactly like in America, but from the perspective of an asian who lives in a western country, I think if you are 1st generation then you still more like asian in asia, but if you are like 2nd or 3rd generation you become more and more western.



that's true,
my family moved to the czech republic 12 years ago, and thy're how shoudl i say.. very 'asiatic' they look out for every tradition and so
but for me and my sisters.. we enjoy the freedom as european people.. that means, we have a bit mmore free hand, as when we g out, when we reurn and so
school is a very important thing to us, very uch
education XD
no, asriously, my parents wante me to be a lawyer, my sister a doctor and the next one sould be a lwyer too... yeah, more money, and so
but now day see, that we can't do that, so they opened our paths and we an choose ourselves what we want to do

anyways: i can say at least for me... i am vietnamese
vietnamese people, which i know, are strict, very strict, wen it comes to sex, sex before marriage.. is absolutely TABU
adn education is everything for them
if a child isn't educated, it's not only shame for hte kid, bu talso for the whole family

your right


America is more religious, have higher crime a lot more murders, higher teen pregnancies.. lower GPA... Lower life-span, higher level of fat people.


Japan has higher suicide rates, more prostitution, less religious, stricter laws against weapon trafficking. And each part of Japan has there own set laws.. So no real standards for laws.. So it varies from place to place.



Both places have around the same level of freedoms judging from the freedom index. BOTH places have there equal trouble with racism.

I was wondering if asian people how different is their lifestyle over there compare to the U.S.
is there any stereotyping??

First of all, since the topic is about human cultural differences. We need to establish a scientific view, that's excluding any and all unrealistic prejudices and stereotypes. While create a classification on different cultures, with standard and definition based on real and measurable cultural variants. Because in the world of scientific research, it's all about getting the result right every single time. While bias opinions based on unrealistic stereotypes and prejudices, will only deviate the result due to data contamination.

And the good news is social scientists already established cultural classification for us, and that's individualistic culture from the Western society and collectivist culture from the Eastern society(citation).

Not only that, there are benefits at studying cultural differences. Such as how collectivist culture can help society to build social buffer for individuals that are prone to suffer from depression.

When you break it all down, there is no difference. Everyone wants a piece of the pie no matter where you go. Living in difficult conditions forces people to improve their situation. If they don't, they will continue to suffer, and it always gets worse.
