anybody who has traveled to Canada knows it is a far less brutal and considerably more compassionate place than here, as are many European countries. If you read a lot of the questions and responses on here, and compare them to those posted by other nationalities, it comes across how f'd up this country is. Anybody who has traveled to the countries i mentioned knows this. Don't come to America looking for compassion. Especially not under Trump, who criticized George Bush, Sr. for advocating for a "kinder, gentler America". Trump and his followers think compassion is for "snowflakes". That's why this country has become almost unlivable now. The bullying macho, "zero sum game" mentality where it's "weak" to help the downtrodden and there is only winning and losing, but no cooperating. MAGA. That's why the rest of the world has currently written us off as flaky and unstable, like the President.
