The swing in the USA attitude in my life time is a complete 180. I remember the late 1980s to late 1990s when most Americans were very optimistic and regional differences weren't as strong. Now many people face a future where they have a lower income and lower life expectancy than their parents or grandparents. People now are much more tense, whether it's behind the wheel of a car or internet comments or waiting in line at the store. Most people on know on the left or right believe the USA is in decline (though they disagree on why).

Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Israel, Northern Ireland (wars, conflicts constantly, terrorism), Greece (economic ruin and chaos), Ireland (seems like a sad place, most of their music, stories, and stuff is sad too)

Also most of Eastern Europe like Russia, Ukraine, Romania, etc. Very depressing places.
