Be Proud you totally missed my point.

Not every culture is present in every country or city so their presence or absence does not affect quality of life overall. It just can't otherwise no comparisons are possible.

The diversity of climate alone gives the U.S. a huge edge.

Maybe, maybe not.

Edge....yes....huge edge no....

For example, China has a great diversity of climate....but doesn’t translate to better quality of life
compared to Canada, Sweden, or USA.

No, your point is clear. But still flawed.


The fact that "culture X" is not present in a city is not a relevant measure for comparing the quality of life in cities across the world.

Ok .... I get the point. USA BAD ..... CANADA BETTER, GOOD, COMPASSIONATE, and claims its poor are better taken care of.

But Canada doesn't want uneducated poor folk of the world. Let them go to the US. It uses a points system for immigration to gain it. Add the illegal immigration the US has for decades ballooned.... even mighty Canada would many more issues to deal with as the US.

Ethnic divides that clearly cause divisions even politically today. There are reasons extremism is more prevalent in the US today.

I say let Canadians feel they live on the better side of the border. Why argue the point. Same things they will point out since the thread began.

I'm fine with it..... or this thread could just keep repeating most of the same reasons.

Not what I said or eluded to.My stance is if everyone does not enjoy equal quality of life regardless of race,religion,ethnicity etc.then itsonly a good quality of life for some.
Germans in Germany had better quality of life than Jews.Does that meant Germany had excellent quality of life?No it doesnt.
This is no different
