Also how Nordic countries are basically heaven on earth


Malachite_Cookie

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)) Long lifespans Universal healthcare And the people are sexy as hell


absoluteloser88

Damn straight


dal33t

[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.


wtf_is_happening1

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


SKTPF

Arent the norwegians considered the happiest?


Malachite_Cookie

Well that’s still a Scandinavian country, my point stands


Person2277

But cold


Malachite_Cookie

Better than hot :/


Person2277

As a Floridian who loves the heat, I beg to differ


Ejiuyx

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


Malachite_Cookie

Ye but did I ask


Ejiuyx

You replied to my comment with a shit ton of stats lmao so yea


Malachite_Cookie

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


Ejiuyx

Damn that’s crazy how you know whether or not every rapist in Sweden has been properly rehabilitated


Malachite_Cookie

Not every rapist, it’s just that the system isn’t so dehumanising that it practically guarantees them to reoffend.


Ejiuyx

That’s because the American prison system is built solely for profit, not rehabilitation


Malachite_Cookie

That’s my point.


VandelayOfficial

“Hasn’t been in a single war” how dare you forget the brutal Cod Wars.


startyourbiz

Could have used some sort of "done adulting today" caption.


Beardedgeek72

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).


RavingMalwaay

Yeah I mean in general this is probably true for Reddit and Twitter, but for your example its probably true for Facebook


Beardedgeek72

The Karen Terf anti-vaxxer is a Facebook spawned hell creature for example.


PinkLad45

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.


Person2277

Honestly tho, we have a few problems here and there but we aren’t North Korea, like at least you can voice your opinion


bigmacaque

"The USA is shit, its way worse then \[insert country one fifth the size of the US with the US as a main trading partner and with US military bases in it\]


Person2277

Exactly


Person2277

The average American lives better than a large portion of people in the world


bigmacaque

Most of them actually.


bigdinghynumber3

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.


VandelayOfficial

Sounds like you deserve a chance to rant so nbd


kriticalbonus

“Social media” and the “internet” are different


Alternate7625

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


[deleted]

Agreed with most but IMHO Elon Musk is worshipped on the net. [https://www.bloomberg.com/opinion/articles/2021-01-29/why-reddit-adores-cathie-wood-chamath-palihapitiya-and-elon-musk](https://www.bloomberg.com/opinion/articles/2021-01-29/why-reddit-adores-cathie-wood-chamath-palihapitiya-and-elon-musk) [https://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2018/08/twitter-loves-elon-musk/567026/](https://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2018/08/twitter-loves-elon-musk/567026/) 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


[deleted]

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


cubrey

The internet loves Elon lol.


sega31098

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.


Ritsuko_Hara

Why is it that every single time I come to this subreddit there's a post complaining about people criticising America?


FixYourPockets

Because all Reddit does is criticize America


Ritsuko_Hara

Does that really happen or are you looking for something to be offended by?


FixYourPockets

Every thread about america has people saying it’s a 3rd world country


bigdinghynumber3

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


Sozadan

Yeah. Why would someone use information to form views?


No__Champagne

If you get your “information” from social media, it’s probably shit information.


Ejiuyx

LOL based


[deleted]

69% upvoted


theothermarkh

Where’s the pic of trump giving putin a blow job?


meme-yeet-69

W H A T


SovietDuck__

now this is interesting


aliaenorr

Yeah because my view of religion surely didn’t come from religious trauma. Silly me.


Memeivator

Americans when they go outside and learn not everyone is a karen


dal33t

I have yet to actually see one in person, but judging by reddit you'd think they were on every street corner or something.


[deleted]

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


No__Champagne

> 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.


Malachite_Cookie

You clearly don’t understand what depression is


Testicle_Expert

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.


EastTransportat1on4

Testicle Expert the reddit psychologist


[deleted]

>that’s objectively true Ahh


Testicle_Expert

He also said being gay is a choice.


[deleted]

Sounds like a good guy


No__Champagne

Nah, I said it “could be”. Learn to read.


Testicle_Expert

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 ?


No__Champagne

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.


Testicle_Expert

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.


No__Champagne

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?


Testicle_Expert

“I never said people can choose to be gay” “People theoretically can choose to be gay”


Testicle_Expert

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.


RaspberryNecessary35

What's the "orginzation"?


Solace143

Christianity. The picture’s of a church

batkave

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


ooogabooga2929

Nothing works


batkave

Idk, eating the rich sounds good when climate change really starts to f us up


ooogabooga2929

Agreed


[deleted]

He doesn’t understand history and logic, otherwise he wouldn’t be a socialist


ooogabooga2929

In other words he's a fucking dumbass


1984-is_here

So that means every millennial and gen z.


Person2277

Sounds about right


CaseyGamer64YT

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.


StankoMicin

To be fair, the catholic church is pretty evil


No__Champagne

And they're also the most charitable organization on earth. Weird.


StankoMicin

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.


Dr34m_J1nX

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.


bigdinghynumber3

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
