“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists to adapt the world to himself.
Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” ― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman
Comparing the U.S. to any other country is like comparing apples to oranges (or apples to orangutans). No other country has anything quite like our history, our culture, or our demographics. Just saying.
Something else one of my Canadian friends noted after spending most of the winter here in the States: “You guys are really trained to hate yourselves, you know that?” She was right, pride in Country and our fellow citizens isn't a subject we hear a lot about.
