Name a metric that the UK is better than the US.

I think a lot of Americans underestimate the horrors of crime and the disintegration of the schools in the U.K. But in the pits of America's worst areas it's a lot worse. Parts of Baltimore, Detroit, DC, Atlanta, and of course, Chicago are so ****ing unlivable. I know getting jacked in London hurts just as much as in New York and dead is dead but even so.

Also, don't underestimate how horrible our healthcare system is if you're poor. Turned away, left to die, and still put in bankruptcy.

And while I'm at it, our penal system. For profit torture chambers. Anal rape for marijuana possession and then they charge you for it and make it almost impossible to work again.

Basically all of them having to do with average quality of life

We have a much larger economy on paper but it's sort of just for show

The people here do not live lives that resemble our cultural output, this is largely due to massive levels of inequality

This isn't to glorify the UK, mind you

Hating your country of origin is the sign of a rational person rejecting the propaganda their state feeds them

If you're still in decent health life is probably better for the young working poor in America.

Maybe.

Tuition rates. If it's as bad in the U.K. I'm sorry to hear that.

Brilliant. But doesn't the U.K. have some stupid way of using both systems?
