You can't put a finger on it but people's freedoms and civil liberties have increased around the world due to the United States providing the world an example. Thank you America.

Except the vast majority of the Jewish population in the US was here before WWII even happened. Most of the non-US Jewish population moved to Israel after WWII but very few Jews left the US. I think that speaks more to the freedoms of America then anything else.

Like, yes, but I don't think something like the NRA would exist in a lot of places.
