I think of this when Europeans on Reddit make blanket statements about the US without recognizing places like Massachusetts exist. Heaven forbid any of us live anywhere but Florida and Alabama.

A country, a culture, people are evaluated by its lowest point. U.S. is particularly bad at this as it has no intention to improve the worst people

USA is also bigger than all (most?) countries in Europe…that would be like us judging Paris for what happens in Moldova.

I imagine a visitor from any major western European city would be dumbfounded at the state of infrastructure and public transportation in Boston these days.

Europe isn’t some magical utopia either lol. Lots of places have shit infrastructure and shit politicians and huge income inequality too but for some reason American redditors see one picture of a bike lane in Amsterdam and a train in Germany and think that’s how all of Europe is 😂
