Sounds like everyone wants to go to the US. I live so close to the US and I haven’t gone and probably wont ever go. I just don’t like their culture… their plastic, obese and consumerist culture.
It’s always interesting to me when authors here trash the U.S. considering that it’s the largest market here on Envato.

It is also interesting that someone could criticize a country while admitting he’s never been there. I wouldn’t write a country off based on what I saw on TV or read on the internet.

dekurvajo, ok that is your idealistic point of view. But if we speak from pragmatic point of view you can’t disagree that there are people who left their countries to find something that can be called happiness and that means for example job, home, human rights, possibility to develop their knowledge and potential, acceptance of their difference because they did not have possibilities for that in their countries. There are really “hell” and “heaven” on Earth when we compare lives in different countries according to human rights and economic standard.

Because traveling teach you for those things what you can not learn from books, school, or any media. For me, its became more than an adventure. It’s teach you how to be determined but not stubborn, self-motivation is became a must. And it could be often risky as well, but it can reminds you how fragile you are, and its force you humility. Traveling is really change your life, and your relationship to this world. Nothing will ever again be black or white, good or bad. it gives you a real immunity against absolutism. And its a damn good feeling when you experience what does it mean when you really love other people, without greed, envy, or self-interest.

Oh man I understand what you mean +1000 :)

Grizzle, I was seriously thinking about Oregon. The problem is, having the visa for long term, its getting more and more strict in your country. But Oregon is still on my list anyway.

I like the place where I live, may be I don’t travel enough to compare other places. If you have too many things to compare… well we have very short life to compare and then decide certain things.

We need to consider that this thread posted under “Global Off Topic”, so we should forget about business for a while :D

And regarding plastic, obesity and consumerism, I see those even inside poverty, it is a global issue :(
