    I'm from the United States.

    What sucks is:

    1. Too much emphasis on materialism
    2. Unhealthy eating habits and high obesity rates
    3. Lack of universal healthcare. Most highly industrialized nations have this.
    4. Staggering high cost of higher education.
    5. Corporate greed. What's best for the business isn't necessarily what's best for society
    6. An increasing divide between the rich and poor.

    It's time to explain again, why your country sucks. This time it's Good Country Index. Also see Press Freedom Index.

    A blatantly false image gets put out about our most valuable assets. I dislike marketing in general, but...whenever I tell people i am from New Zealand, they generally say what a lovely country it is and how they want to visit, or mention LOTR.

    The sad thing is, all the clean, green image of mountains, lakes and green pastures is just marketing. The water quality in some of our rivers in actually little better than it is in China, due to the intense dairy farming that the government refuses to regulate. There is a huge amount of nitrate and other pollutants which can seep through the soil into river water, destroying the fishing and endangering our drinking supply (a lot of people here take water out of aquifers). Even I can remember times when it was OK to swim in rivers which it is unsafe to now, as this is an issue that has really accelerated in the last decade. And there isn't much native forest in NZ outside parks. That stands in stark contrast to other parts of the world. You guys might be surprised but I think forest cover is higher in Austria and Croatia, two countries I've visited recently.

    There is time to reverse the damage, but the government isn't interested and I don't want the opposition coming into power because they are left wing fanatics.

    Maybe all the right-wing environmentalists will get on that.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    You can care about the environment without being a Marxist. This is especially the case in NZ, where protecting the environment has always been a big issue.

    I would start a thread about my beliefs just to dispense this association with conservatives and the American Right, who I have little in common with, but I've started three threads already today which is quite enough.

    It is the United States.

    No further explanation is necessary.
