OK, as a British expat I had to read what this post was all about... you're basically saying that the US isn't all that bad when compared to Europe in certain areas like surveillance, infringement of rights, etc.

I'm aghast daily at the level of brainwashing of the US public,
Italy leads in media uniformity.
Great Britain leads in surveillance.
Eastern Europe leads in predatory corporate greed.
The US leads in police brutality and people per capita in prison.
Germany leads in self-speech censoring and excessive political correctness.
