You take a lot of stuff for granted don't you OP. I'll refrain from being too harsh, but you're really ungrateful for the many luxuries you enjoy if you are an American.
If you are not an America, I'm guessing you've never been to America.
We got some good stuff here in America, including but not limited to electricity, running clean water, FOOD, education, good technology, good healthcare, cars, roads, and lots of other stuff.

While the US may not be as good as Europe in many metrics...

Be real. We've got far better quality of life than most of the world.

While our murder rate's higher than most of Europe, look at it compared to the countries you think we belong with.

Guess what every other western nation has those things you mentioned oh and free healthcare, less gun violence, cheap college, and now some are giving universal incomes. Literally, only Americans that are nationalistic think America is great, we are trash. Oh, another thing you don't have to worry about in one of those really free west nations, bribery of your lawmakers, archaic voting systems, cops killing you when you are unarmed.

:rofl: Clean water :rofl:

But continue on how great we are. Btw been in canada for school and the ONLY problem is the amount of smokers.

In Keshiland's defense:
- You can easily spend more on a medical bill than you would on the taxes for universal healthcare.
- You can easily spend more money on school than you would the taxes for K-16 education.
- And there is that thing about lead in water.

However, those points are too small to not make the US a developed country.
And of course, a developed country will still have problems it needs to deal with.

Maybe don't make hate threats against people and be racist, sexist, homophobic/transphobic, or Islamophobic, antisemitic, or xenophobic online and your good. Sounds like they punish hate maybe if we did that we could beat racism in america.

See, here's what worries me about this - what is sexist?

I consider sexist to be preferential or detrimental treatment based on one's sex or gender. Egalitarian approaches to gender are the opposite of sexism. I endorse such egalitarian approaches.

Except, mine is a minority view. A very interesting study which used scripted action to ensure benevolent sexism, hostile sexism, and egalitarian approaches found that people who fail to be sexist against men and in favor of women are viewed as sexist. That's right - an egalitarian approach IS viewed as sexist in our society.

And you want to criminalize people who are viewed by society as sexist. That's a problem - given the only way not to be viewed as sexist is to be sexist.
Venicilian: wow. Jesus hung around with everyone. boys, girls, rich, poor(mostly), sick, healthy, etc. in fact, i bet he even went up to gay people and tried to heal them so they would be straight.
The Parkus Empire: Being serious on NSG is like wearing a suit to a nude beach.
New Kereptica: Since power is changed energy over time, an increase in power would mean, in this case, an increase in energy. As energy is equivalent to mass and the density of the government is static, the volume of the government must increase.

Look at tuition costs.
"In 2016-17, the average cost of annual tuition in the United States ranged from $9,700 for public four-year institutions to $33,500 for private four-year institutions."
- Wikipedia

And there are student loans, which you can spend years paying off. And then there is student loans for graduate school such as med school.

With K-16 education, your taxes and others' taxes pay for everyone's education.
You don't worry about insane costs, your children don't have to worry about it either.

Now there are differences between countries.
Some pay for somethings while a different country will pay for something else.

I'm still dealing with good sources.
I did once talk to someone from Canada about something similar; however, it was about healthcare so he's not really a source for this.

K-12 is kindergarten to 12th grade, high school.
K-16 is kindergarten through college.

I was just using K-16 because it's much easier.
Different countries have different grades for different levels, they do college/university differently.


Student loans can get really expensive depending on how long you are in school. And there's an interest rate.
I've heard stories of doctors who were 40 by the time they pay them off.

Why would someone get a gender studies degree? Why not a sociology degree or an anthropology degree?
But anyways, it doesn't matter what degree you have if you go to med school.
You can get a theater arts major and go to med school.

You see, the average debt of a student when graduating stands at $35000 as of 2015 (most recent data I could find). At the same time, college grads were starting off with a median salary of $50k as of 2016 (2014 was $48k so I'll round up to $49k in 2015). Student loans typically have an APR of 5-7%. Place an average of 6%, discount the 2% inflation target and you get 4% real interest rate every year. Now, using that $49k figure, the "normal" graduated person can hand out 15% of its salary to debt service and it'll be repaid within 5 years and half.

I would give it a no. A country that lies about how free, or how great, or how humanitarian it is can never be developed.
