Some people consider a successful life one spent in the servitude of Allah. I don't, and wouldn't consider a country where this was prominent a success no matter whether the people enjoyed it or not.
That's dependant on an entirely relativist and subjectivistic attitude, one that I do not consider an appropriate way to judge the merits of people and purpose of life.
If you hadn't realised they've got so many different cultures in America they're probably more cultured than most Europeans.
Arggg will people stop saying vacation its HOLIDAY
"Most of the communities in America are deeply segregated and rarely crossover."
Um, where's the proof in that statement? What evidence is this opinion based on?
"The point still stands that there are plenty of Americans who do seem to think like that though, or why not at least have a passport? What do you think about that?"
Hmm,... well I know you addressed that the MITUSA ... but unless americans can afford both the time and money of overseas travel...why should they?
As long as they already have a state ID/ drivers liscense That is accepted all over both North and South America? (with a few exceptions).
Imagine if it was the same for all Europeans and Asians .... their "passport" basically performs the same function as a state ID/ drivers liscense.
It's like asking why most 16 year olds in the UK don't have a drivers liscense...
Becuase they probably don't need it.... where the majority of 16 year olds in the US DO have it. Heck, I got my motorcycle license at 17....
"You're American and deny this?"
Where is the evidence? Hey, I live in one of the most "segregated" cities in the world, admittedly. But the irony is...it's also one of the most diverse. ANY large city will have pockets of SELF segregation, especially in the urban areas....and MASSIVE diversity in everyday life, downtown where everyone works together.
It's like saying Japan or Malaysia or Austria has little segregation......well...that's becuase they are largely homogenous.
I'm sure you could find a study in those countries claiming that London is largely segregated.... but the point is, London is also one of the most diverse cities in the WORLD. This should be a huge point of pride for the UK...they are pioneers of true multi ethic freedom.
Indiana is home to Gary...one of the most run down cities in the US....it makes Detroit look good.
I have no idea who AO is.
I admit, I become...concerned...when people complain about "segregation" , while glossing over the benefits of a multi ethnic society. But if you prefer a homogenous population mix, that's your opinion. You have every right to it.
I see the study didnt mention what ppl thought of australians. Australia where's that? i hear them say
Fair play. Your opinion seems more valid that Byronic as his seems to be an attitude of subjectivistic appeasement, not what I'd expect from a libertarian.
What? A libertarian wouldn't force people to mix. Freedom of association.
Surely you consider the existence of serving yourself a better alternative to spending a life of servitude of some god or other?
