Also how Nordic countries are basically heaven on earth
Ok yeah but
Best school system (Finland)
Best prison system (Sweden)
The people are the happiest in the world (Denmark)
Safest country in the world (iceland)
Hasn’t been in a single war (Iceland)
Has the only pride parade in history that hasn’t been protested (Iceland)
Most peaceful countries in the world (1- Iceland 3- Denmark (compared to America being at war for 225 out of 243 years))
And the people are sexy as hell
[Iceland was technically invaded during WW2 by the British](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_invasion_of_Iceland), [Sweden utterly dropped the ball responding to COVID](https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736\(21\)00885-0/fulltext), and [Denmark's government is appallingly racist despite being nominally left-wing.](https://www.dw.com/en/why-denmark-is-clamping-down-on-non-western-residents/a-56960799)
Before 2020 I would've blindly upvoted this and left, being of Scandinavian descent myself, but lately I've been getting sick of the hagiography of the Nordics.
people praising iceland feels weird because its literally a tiny ass island in the arctic lmao of course its safe and hasn't been in war
Arent the norwegians considered the happiest?
Well that’s still a Scandinavian country, my point stands
Better than hot :/
As a Floridian who loves the heat, I beg to differ
Suicide is responsible for a third of all deaths among young people (Finland)
Highest level of private debt in the world (Denmark)
Fourth largest per capita ecological footprint in the world (Denmark)
Proportion of people below the poverty line has doubled over the last decade (Denmark)
Iceland is just an uninhabitable rock in the North Atlantic lol why would it be dangerous or be in wars??
Highest murder rate in Western Europe (Finland)
One of the highest number of rape cases in the world (Sweden)
There’s a reason why people just fantasize about these countries and don’t actually go live there
Ye but did I ask
You replied to my comment with a shit ton of stats lmao so yea
Bro that’s wild but also rape cases aren’t quite as bad when the prisons don’t ensure that they’ll do it again
Damn that’s crazy how you know whether or not every rapist in Sweden has been properly rehabilitated
Not every rapist, it’s just that the system isn’t so dehumanising that it practically guarantees them to reoffend.
That’s because the American prison system is built solely for profit, not rehabilitation
That’s my point.
“Hasn’t been in a single war” how dare you forget the brutal Cod Wars.
Could have used some sort of "done adulting today" caption.
Funny, the people I meet who have all their opinions from social media LOVE everything in this picture (especially Trump, Musk and God) (and bitcoin).
Yeah I mean in general this is probably true for Reddit and Twitter, but for your example its probably true for Facebook
The Karen Terf anti-vaxxer is a Facebook spawned hell creature for example.
Seriously though, It makes me fucking angry when I see people act like America is some kind of bad place to live. Why? Because me (And many other people) were born in shitty countries with our dream simply living in a place like the US. Just because America isn't 100% to your liking doesn't mean it's a shit hole, You ungrateful fucks.
Sorry, I went into a bit of a rant there.
Honestly tho, we have a few problems here and there but we aren’t North Korea, like at least you can voice your opinion
"The USA is shit, its way worse then \[insert country one fifth the size of the US with the US as a main trading partner and with US military bases in it\]
The average American lives better than a large portion of people in the world
Most of them actually.
And the average American is actually richer and wealthier than perfect Europe. I’ve spent to much time online. I thought the us was like 40th-50th for gdp per capita but we are actually in the top 10 for almost every ranking and above nations like Sweden, Canada and all those other places redditors believe are utopias.
Sounds like you deserve a chance to rant so nbd
“Social media” and the “internet” are different
If you’re able to say you live in the worst place on earth and you have access to internet, food, electricity, and running water I think some folks over in North Korea and rural Africa would like a few words with you.
No they think Elon is wholesome chungus
Agreed with most but IMHO Elon Musk is worshipped on the net.
Technology CEO = stem circlejerk
Electric cars banned by government = libertarian / smug consumerist circlerjerk with shades of underdog circlejerk
Rich dude who has interesting personality = lick Tony Stark's balls circlejerk
SpaceX = space circlejerk
Private space exploration = libertarian circlejerk / "I could be an astronaut too!" circlejerk
Company literally named Tesla = Nikola Telsa circlejerk
Seems to be a nerd = nerds are literally oppressed, nerdface circlejerk
Add to that, Elon Musk is
Male - male circlejerk / Reddit's hate for women
White - reddit is literally stormfront
Cis - reddit is transphobic
Atheist - need I say anything?
Rich - anti-poor people circlejerk
Canadian-American - Canada circlejerk (sorry, eh, amirite???)
Paypal founder - reddit gold circlejerk
The internet loves Elon lol.
I think you mean "Everything I know about the world came from Reddit". Seniors on Facebook and WhatsApp are typically nothing like this. Also, Major Depressive Disorder is a genuinely debilitating illness.
Why is it that every single time I come to this subreddit there's a post complaining about people criticising America?
Because all Reddit does is criticize America
Does that really happen or are you looking for something to be offended by?
Every thread about america has people saying it’s a 3rd world country
Yh bro the country that is at least top 20 or top 15 in almost every single metric is a third world country bro. See in europ they have free secks, free jobs, free rent, free everything
Yeah. Why would someone use information to form views?
If you get your “information” from social media, it’s probably shit information.
Where’s the pic of trump giving putin a blow job?
W H A T
now this is interesting
Yeah because my view of religion surely didn’t come from religious trauma. Silly me.
Americans when they go outside and learn not everyone is a karen
I have yet to actually see one in person, but judging by reddit you'd think they were on every street corner or something.
The “I exaggerate people’s opinions that I don’t like” starterpack. I kinda see where you’re coming from because this shit is a little annoying, but this just screams angry conservative honestly. Oh and you’re that guy that said people are depressed because they’re not religious in a previous post lmao
> you’re that guy that said people are depressed because they’re not religious
I never said that at all. I said that religion is one thing that can help people, along with diet, exercise, having a good job and sleep schedule, and having a good social life. That's objectively true.
Don't be a dumbass.
You clearly don’t understand what depression is
For something to be objectively true it has to have undeniable evidence. Judging by your incurious nature , I suppose you spew out lies like an unclogged sewer.
Testicle Expert the reddit psychologist
>that’s objectively true
He also said being gay is a choice.
Sounds like a good guy
Nah, I said it “could be”. Learn to read.
Nah , that’s what you meant cause you forget that being gay isn’t a choice and there is no possible way for someone straight to become gay one day. How about you learn how to not spew bullshit ?
What if someone does choose to be gay? Are you telling them that they aren't allowed to, even if they want to? Pretty hateful tbh.
No one chooses to be gay. They’re born that way. And some people might find out they’re bisexual later in life. That doesn’t mean they chose to be—it just happens. That’s not being hateful. What’s hateful is thinking gay people have a choice for being who they are.
I never claimed that being gay is always a choice. I just said that someone could theoretically choose to be gay if they wanted. You act like it's not even possible. Smh, you bigot. How do you know that literally nobody has ever chosen to be gay on purpose, ever?
“I never said people can choose to be gay”
“People theoretically can choose to be gay”
That’s not how it works you fool. I’m straight and I don’t become gay if I see a good looking dude. I am like this since birth.
What's the "orginzation"?
Christianity. The picture’s of a church
Honestly, no system will work because humans, particularly leaders, are power hungry and greedy. Capitalism doesn't work like you think it will and neither will socialism. Granted the latter people go to extremes and just automatically think of China and Soviets which is not the same
Idk, eating the rich sounds good when climate change really starts to f us up
He doesn’t understand history and logic, otherwise he wouldn’t be a socialist
In other words he's a fucking dumbass
So that means every millennial and gen z.
Sounds about right
a lot of my worldview comes from the sub with the funny colors that for some reason people call racist. Idk r/politicalcompassmemes is fine.
To be fair, the catholic church is pretty evil
And they're also the most charitable organization on earth. Weird.
Al capone was also charitable.. your point?
The catholic church is being charitable with money they got through centuries of conquest. Half the time their charities have very little actual benefit for the people they serve i.e. Mother Theresa.
no no no bill gates is great he doesn’t spend all his money on going to space and he donated millions to the production of the vaccine in early covid. elon musk is an ok guy he manufactured a lot of electric cars which lower pollution, but he is getting kids to mine for hardly any pay and in poor mining conditions.
Oh yh I deal with the occasional douche I definitely have the worst job ever. Just ignore the jobs that require serious mental and physical labor and the jobs where you actually fucking die
