Could get a # less than what a foreigner thinks, sorry pal, you dont affect my life at all.


Well... you have posted... shows you do care.

We can all agree that every country has its # and grouping them all into one thing and shouting "you suck we dont" is helping a lot! Look at all the good its done. Though I will say, I do like the Americas, the south is fine but when you get to the mainly "English" speaking part of it, thats where it goes down hill. Stick to South America, or what I like to call, the real America, everything above Mexico is fake and wishy wash.

The biggest critics of America, the ones who do all these comparisons between Europe (which country by the way? There are many and they are all very different!) are AMERICANS.

Frigging arrogant ignorant imbeciles!

Look, part of our american values is individualism, which requires-

Being self taught, self mastered... being able to spot our own weaknesses, failings, or faults and correct them ourselves, instead of being dependent upon others to point them out and fix them.

Result? we are very self critical, and spend much time trying to spot our weaknesses before others do, and search for solutions to them, often looking around at the various examples to study.


So us Americans criticize our selves, and our own nation, a lot. We point out other examples and potential solutions to choose from in correcting them.

The continent of Europe and the people that live there do not hate the US, Americans, nor do they waste their time criticizing them. It is your fellow americans that point out our countries failings. This article and the OP, are attacking the wrong people (and in the process, proving the critics right, that our culture is degrading into ignorance, intellectual laziness, and emotional reactivism).

The biggest critics are probably the Americans that have gone outside the walls for extended periods, and discovered the truths that were hidden from us- like that the rest of the world is not poverty stricken and living in oppression- that is a lie fed to us to keep us from being discontent and uprising against our oppressors. "The Socialist" is the myth of the monster in the woods, created to keep you from wandering out of it.

I admit to being a critic of the US myself. The Europeans I know here have no idea how bad it is in my native land. None. We all see the world not as it is, but as we ourselves are.


Before coming to ATS and seeing this, I read an article which was similar, about the oft repeated comparisons to the Finnish school system, which is producing superior results (closer to what we'd like to see in our own school system), the author basically resumed the reason for the rant- "I am sick of being Jan to the Marcia Finland is"

(for foriegners, this is a reference to a popular tv show many of us grew up with, "the Brady Bunch", in which the eldest daughter was named Marcia, the middle child Jan, and illustrated the usual plight of the middle child - in which the eldest is constantly idealized and used as and example).

It's bitter jealousy. That's all.

Now, pick yourself up by your bootstraps and be a real American! Be able to see ways we have to learn and grow and develop further, and get on with it! We're not a peoples who value sitting around wimpering in jealousy and badmouthing others to stroke our ego! We don't believe in staying in our ruts and mud puddles to avoid the discomfort of growth and progression! We believe in looking forward and being led by our intellect, not childish emotion. We use competition as a way of challenging ourselves, not simply proving anything to anyone else.
When the urge arises to feel sorry for yourself, just counter it and remind yourself you are American- you don't do that. That creates bitter rumor-mongering passive laziness.

Excellent tale.

You should think of The USA as the never ending, never tiring middle finger sticking up rigid and in thy direction.

I thank you.

But lets face it, I understand a love for ones country and all that but that absolute BS I see people posting on ATS now a days is getting stupid. All I seem to see is:

"Im not rasist, but"
"Im not offended but if you"
"Im not saying my country is better then yours but"

Then more chest pumping to make one look more manly / hard in the eyes of strangers. I started reading this site 10 years ago, joined up a few years after. I have seen more and more cr*p like this being posted week in week out and for what? To fill your karma? More stars and flags? Please...

People need to think before they post, lets go back to the OP, "socialist drones" I'll take that, but will counter with America, the home of the capitalist wishy washy "home of the free" drone. See, theres me being "funny" and "defensive". This whole thread is filled with misconceptions of both sides of the pond which could be easily dropped like this whole thread. But hell, we all know the reply to my reply is "lol you posted on it".

Yes...

Yes I did, I too, like you am a complete idiot.

But lastly:




You should think of The USA as the never ending, never tiring middle finger sticking up rigid and in thy direction.


I will, I will think of it as the WHOLE country doing that to me alone as I am that important to you.

Not so much love, tbh, its a total lack of really giving half a turd, I hate the things going on in my country too.

So what someone wants to be noisy, in the end, its business as usual.

Nothing changes, only the faces.

edit: go ahead if your ego is that malleable. Bothers me not one bit. Indulge in it, maybe you can feel special for once.

Me thinks the op needs a safe space to rain down his hate from. I sense the Donald trump effect on his weeny American brain, that equates money to intelligence.

This article is almost comical. I wonder how much does that person make for a living per month?

What about those in America who cant afford to pay the education nor healthcare? oh yeah they are ignored Typical. The article is just laughable at best. Another example.




Oh and I’m just getting started. The U S of A is the only country to invent the lightbulb, Internet and Pop Tarts. Imagine coming down from your pot high without Pop Tarts. Also, the first to the moon.


lol first to the moon? America is the only country to invent the lightbulb? yeah a lightbulb which you have to pay your taxes in order to have electricity.

If America had listened to Nikola tesla everyone would had free electricity. But hey your America.. America knows whats best for the world.

As for the Pop Tarts some of us Europeans dont even care about pop tarts.


I stopped after this.


We’re the only country who is known for leading in innovation. You know who’s always “the only person” doing things? Champions.


America did not create video games so your breath.

According to the article.




“Oh Americans think it’s their job to police the world!” said every non-champion who left the birth canal reluctantly. I’m generally a non-interventionist, but you know why people believe America should police the world? Because we’re the only ones who can.


LOL Yeah and you know what? why not just rename the earth to America? this article is a laughing joke

This article claims that Americans are great in innovation yet the majority of those innovation were created by migrants from Europe.

YOU need more guns


Europe is civilized we dont need guns and to be a south Sudan in a few years but hey America will be a lawless state without any laws should any of the NRA candidates win couldn't care less about Hillary. Every country has a form of a gun law. Otherwise its a Wild West Wild West country.


Maybe America should stop intervening into countries and telling others how to live and let those countries govern themselves for once. After all.

Might have to do with decades of US Bombing the living hell out of the middle east for no reason?


Thats the mean reason why migrants are fleeing their homelands.

You are quite foolish to attempt to guess at anything American,especially politics if THAT is how your thought process works.
Maybe you had best look to the oligarchs instead of military there ,buddy.
We are a last option not the first,
