Depends if the liberal country has gun rights. I'm pretty physically weak so fist for fist I would do terrible. But I have amazing aim and am gun trained. I have a few pistols and a recently required AR, allow me to have these and pepper spray I'll take the liberal country any day of the week.

Another reason I think this is as a woman I'd be pretty oppressed in the conservative option. I'm pretty stubborn and wouldn't succumb to those women-hating laws, so that would give me either a lot of prison or get me executed. I'd probably have a better chance of living in the liberal one.

First group has a homicide rate of at least 16.0 per 100k, Second group are all under 4.0 per 100k.


Freedom > Safety
Libya has far more homicides than any of the first group.

Colombia and Mexico are the worst even if they're officially lower than Brazil and South Africa (yes, Colombia is now officially lower than Brazil. Incredible.) Those two are recognized as worse than the rest, but Libya takes any of these nations to the cleaners for homicides. Official statistics are only as good as the condition of the country.

Is there any country from the 2nd group you prefer over a country from the 1st group?
That's a good way to put it.

A bit of a nonsense thread riddled with ignorance, political bias and unfounded assumptions.

If Singapore is classified tyrannical and it is a one party state, I would choose that than living in a very progressive city that is very high in crime.

My answer to this depends entirely on just how dangerous the "liberal" country is. Many would describe the US as a dangerous country but it's not like I ever live in fear. Even visiting family in Mexico I've never had any moments of fear.

I'm gay so to pick the conservative country, the alternative liberal country would have to be one where I regularly experience fear. It would have to feel far more dangerous than Mexico or other stereotyped Central American countries.

I live in Fortaleza, Brazil, I couldn't care less about "safety"

It's the city of the biggest bank burglary in world's history (in 2005).

I love the freedom I have here, I wouldn't exchange this freedom for any "safety".

Another way to phrase the topic question:

"Would you rather live in a country with":


No-Go Zones: You will be unsafe in certain areas.

or

No-Be Zones: You will be unsafe anywhere because of who you are.
