    Although US is interesting for me because I live in Europe, European people/society is better. Health care is almost always free, people don't show off with their houses, cars and income so much, even very wealthy people use public transport.. All the bosses I was working for was always acting very nice to me and other workers. People are more soft/tame. This is all just my point of view.

    Those videos for curious slakers are killing journalism. Comparison is not reason. Those facts are not verified, and so, they're false.: taking Luxembourg as exemple is an none sens ; taxes in Belgium are in fact high on wages but clearly absent for property ; top unis and schools are quite expansive in France and Germany, the price of scholarship in scandinavia isnt free as their taxes are way higher than in Belgium (for exemple) ; talking about house size without a quote about demographic density and real estate market? ; talking about car owners when the US as built this industry and has been built by it? ; talking about alcoohol in Europe where most of beverages have been created (nothing about meth and opioids consumption in the US?)...

    In the US: My girlfriend has 2 children. The oldest is a scientest, just out of college, on a degree, 8 years. Her feancae also. He will be starting out at just $90,000 a year and will progress up to $130,000 in 2 years. She was ONLY offered $80,000 a year to start! Her son lays on the coutch. He is 32 years old. Moved back in with us. He worked at a fast food restaurant for a few weeks and quiet. Life is what you make it in America. Nothing is free, but you have opportunities. MOST Americans don't want free, they want freedom!

  • Gabe G.

    USA is better because of the following:
    Diverse population: in a single day you have a chance of meeting people from 20 different countries
    Diverse landscape & climates - one country, with vast territories
    Top universities in the world: Majority of elite schools are located in the USA
    Leader in science, medical research, and high technology: no single European country is so advanced in these fields
    Overall friendly and hospitable people: some might argue usual American niceness is fake, but that's another topic. People in US are almost always friendly and quick to smile
    Affordable cost of living in most of the country: compared to Western European countries (UK, Germany)
    People here are relatively not afraid to take risks in life: This is one of the main reasons why majority of modern successful tech companies were born in US. Especially younger people in USA are more eager to take risks of founding a startup
    Most of the world's most popular and influential musical genres of the past 150 years started and flourished in the US
    The strong ability of American creations to influence the way people think and live all over the world: Hollywood has a huge say in this
    There is relatively little xenophobia compared to most European countries: especially due to recent political developments, foreigners are not always welcome
    You can be whoever you want, nobody cares about your past or where you come from: if you look at most US celebrities, successful people, many of them were not even born in US, or were born in poverty. In my humble opinion, it is not that easy to make a jump on a social ladder in Europe
    Nationality (or being an American) isn't based on your race or heritage like in almost all other countries
    Owning a car is affordable for most: in most western European countries, car is a high maintenance
    The quality of our health care, service, infrastructure is simply superb: before you speak up, I meant quality, not cost
    Bureaucratic stuff is mostly easier to handle in the US: many European countries still have not adopted digital world and are buried in paperwork (took me 3 months to set an appointment in German foreigners' office, because they accidentally lost some damn paper)
    Lower taxes
    Higher wages: US employers are often more generous

    Everybody's saying that these two places don't compare but the US is about the size of the EU and each state is very different from each other similar to how Europe is made up of many different countries. It isn't a perfect comparison but comparing different parts of the world never is, especially when they are so geographically different

    Columbus didn't discover anything other than false fame, Vikings were there hundreds of years before that

    • Roberta Locatelli
      Roberta Locatelli 18 days ago

      In America, the "Columbus day" has been celebrated and still today, not the "Vikings day"
      So if the Scandinavians want to celebrate Lief Ericsson Day they just need to get widespread support, petition the government, and get a bill passed to make it a holiday.
      But none of those guys were the first. Migrants from Asia came by sea and land waaaay earlier than any Europeans. Why isn’t there a holiday for the Indigenous people?
      Or that Australian or African people were here even before the Indians, as some archeologists claim they have discovered in Brazil?
      I’ll keep my mind open until more data is made available.)
      I'll repeat therefore my question “"Who discovered America?”
      The answer to this question depends on what you mean by "discovered." The English word "discover" is derived from the Latin, "discooperire," a combination of "dis" and "cooperire," to cover, essentially meaning to uncover. The primary meaning given is "to make known."
      I suspect the question being asked is really, "Who made the existence of the American continents and their associated islands known to Europeans?" The answer to that question is Christopher Columbus.
      As the noted historian Paolo Taviani "Only with Columbus's undertaking did Europe, Islam, Indian, China, and Japan learn of the existence of a New World. And that changed the course of human history profoundly." (Taviani, Columbus, p. 262).
      And ... I'm the one to thank you for this discussion

    • The Kruxed
      The Kruxed 19 days ago

      The video at 0:11 states Columbus discovered the new world aka Northern America, my comment says Vikings discovered it. You then seem to want to talk about colonization as some way of disproving me You said the Vikings didn't settle in North America when they clearly did as there is evidence of them having camps at Newfoundland.
      Now you want to talk about colonization as some way of making it seem the Vikings did nothing in comparison which has nothing to do with any of the original points, this isn't a competition for who did what other than who discovered it, the Vikings.
      As for your location, I meant your country obviously not your exact area code... but thank you for the discussion none the less.

    • Roberta Locatelli
      Roberta Locatelli 20 days ago

      The Kruxed Including where do I come from? Oh no! The Vikings never settled in Milan, in Northern Italy!
      And anyway you did not understand my speech: Christopher Columbus was the "conqueror" of America, because the Vikings passed but did not stop in this Continent, while Columbus here was followed by an intense colonial policy.
      He has "conquered" America, the Vikings have only trampled American soil.

    • The Kruxed
      The Kruxed 20 days ago

      Roberta Locatelli There is conclusive proof in Newfoundland its not merely theories. Vikings did settle there just not permanently much the same as they did in many other lands around the world, including where you are from ;-)

    • Roberta Locatelli
      Roberta Locatelli 21 day ago

      @The Kruxed. The Viking ones are just THEORIES based on some finds, so we have to use the "maybe".
      But even if that were the case, we could distinguish the history of the American continent between "discovery" and "conquest": in the first case we would elect the Viking people, who despite having reached the American territories first, never settled there. In the second case, instead, the famous Italian conqueror Christopher Columbus, whose landing was followed by an intense colonial policy..
      And the name "AMERICA" comes from the name of another Italian: AMERIGO Vespucci.

    Income doesn't mean much if you don't factor in cost of living. Luxembourg might have higher incomes but guaranteed it's much more expensive as a place to live than most of the US. While some areas of the US are expensive in terms of things like housing (California, the northeastern and west coast cities, etc.) most of the interior US is INSANELY cheap for housing, durable goods, clothing, fuel, food, etc. relative to Germany, France, the UK, the Benelux countries, Scandinavia, Australia or even Canada.

    You have to bear in mind that although UK student debt is larger overall in reality it is less burdensome than US Student Debt. Almost always it is taken out from the government student loan company, not a private one. Repayments are much less monthly with the loan term continuing until retirement age at which point it will be written off. Similarly if you never earn enough to meet the repayment threshold: £25,000, you will never pay the loan back and it will be wiped off at retirement or 65. So really the two should not be compared, no one here is going bankrupt because of student loan debt.

    tbh, living in Eastern Europe, I can say that Europe is too big and diverse to make such a comaprison,especially given the fact that the eu is devided into west and east-but in general-Europe is a better place to live because the idea is to have a strong mid class,whereas in the US one can livve quite well, but it's just a place where people go to make money and get rich-as you can see there is no paid vacation in the us,also the eu regulates a ton of sht-food production,working conditions, everything is done in a way best for the citizen, whereas in the US it's mostly done in a way to make money-17 million people don't know where their next meal will come from,1million are prisoners,the education and medical care is so expensive-in my country(Bulgaria)-its paid by hte country,at least most things and the ones that aren't fully are mostly paid-for example studying in the best uni in the country will cost you something like 300levs per year whereas people have an average salary of 1500levs-of course my country isn't rich but it is waaay more affordable to study and needless to say none if us have any loans or student debt whatsoever.
