    As for my thread failing...how do you know if you can't see the video and as such have no clue as to what is actually being said?
    Questioning if the US is still the greatest nation shows a veiled contempt for our nation.

If there is one thing that might lead us to not being the greatest country some day, that is it.

    America is still the greatest nation on Earth, ain't nothing changed.

    As it becomes more and more as it is supposed to be, where natural given rights are no longer denied, my feelings are only reaffirmed.

    Self loathing is a threat to America and complacency, an even bigger one. A history of both excellence and great innovation but also of great moral failures, let's continue the former and learn from the latter.

    Nowhere near. Even just on standard of living alone, America has plummeted in the last several decades. Violence, education, health, community, quality of employment -- all in steep decline. Everything that matters to the average person has declined in the US. That is an objectively verifiable fact, and it is also my personal experience as an American who has lived abroad -- and ultimately chose to leave permanently. I'm in good company. There's an exodus of young Americans trying to escape. And believe me, it's only just beginning.

    Was it ever the greatest? I'm not sure, honestly. America has lagged between almost every other developed nation on almost every rights issue that has ever come up during our entire history. It has always been a relatively backwards-thinking country in the scheme of developed nations, and it has always been slow to accept other human beings as human beings.

    Those who still try to claim America is the best place on earth are most of the problem. They want to delude themselves into believing there are no problems, which is how America continues to fall down the ranks. Bury your head in the sand and the problem goes away, apparently. It's an ego game to them, like rooting for a football team. And they are why it is so hard to make any progress in the US. Their baseless sense of superiority matters more to them than their country.

    Is there a greatest nation? Eh, I don't know about that either. I mean, define "greatest."

    But if we were to try to measure that from the perspective of average people who have to live in it, I do know that America most definitely wouldn't be it.

    Nice try but the USA has never been the greatest country. It has always been England and always will be. Sorry to burst anyone's bubble.
