The grass isn't greener on any side. Every country has its problems.
Especially when it comes to money, out of the 196 countries on Earth only 5 of them are without national debt.
And those are almost all places where practically only rich people live like Liechtenstein,Macao or the British Virgin Islands.

I don't know. I love Taiwan and I love Japan. The US seems to have more issues. Although youths in Taiwan tend to be degenerates.

Some of the people on here tend to bash on America like it's nothing. I get America isn't a perfect country and has it's flaws but damn cut the country some slack at least. But people can't help stating what they feel.

Because who better to criticize a country than a citizen of that country?

wherever i go in the world, i find i have to defend the fact that i'm american. wherever i go in the US, i find i have to defend the fact that i'm from new jersey!

don't get me wrong, i appreciate self deprecating humor as much as the next person. it is sometimes the key to sanity.

Besides the grass being greener, countries have a tendency of doing legitimately shady stuff. Obviously an American student, for instance, is going to know more about the dirty deeds done by their own nation than, say, Japan or China. To be fair, the people who insult their own countries might be annoying, but they're better than the jingoistic patriots insisting their country is always right.

It's not that we have more issues, we're just more vocal about it. I think.

why would i talk bad about other countries? i don't know anything about them, at least not in the way that i know about my own country.

If I glorified my country I would be no better than Islamic terrorists... or Americans.

Because nationalism is an outdated mode of thought which has time and time again proven itself systemically unstable. Its better suited to the 19th and early 20th centuries than the realities of the modern world. I much prefer the idea of a sort of class patriotism (I don't even like using that word ) rather than national patriotism.
