What is better in Russia and what is in the USA: American compared two countries


Where to live better, in the "free and democratic" United States of America or in a "totalitarian and police" Russia? The answer to this difficult question for yourself in an interview with the portal Ru_Open tried to find Maxwell, a US citizen who happened to live in our country.


Big brother watching?


Initially, the American believed that in Russia he would be continuously monitored by either the KGB or the FSB. However, in fact, it turned out that the USA can be called a totalitarian state, where the FBI, NSA and the CIA are very actively watching over their citizens and interfering in their lives.

Is the American dream dead?


The American believes that this is so. According to Maxwell, today it will be more accurate to say "American fantasy." The young man agrees that there is nothing wrong with moving to another country as such. Sooner or later, the environment can get bored, and there will be a desire to see the world. His own friends are thinking about moving to Europe, some about Asia. However, it is important not to have “pink glasses” and extra illusions. Those wishing to get out of Russia should listen.

From Michigan to St. Petersburg


In our northern capital it is darker than in Maxwell’s hometown. But the biggest difference is transport. In the US, cities are built for motorists, almost everyone has a car. In New York, Los Angeles or Chicago, there is virtually no public transport. An important advantage of Russia is the developed network of public transport, which is created for people. According to the American, the Russian metro is an order of magnitude better: in it, he has never seen any rats, nor someone's vomit, nor psychos.

Distinction of mentalities


Upon arrival in Russia, the young man was slightly shocked by the local service. In a small store, he clearly prevented the saleswoman from watching TV with his visit and was not honored with her friendly smile. Having gained equanimity in Russia, Maxwell later suffered from this in his homeland. Without smiling at the driver, he got off the bus “because of a rude attitude” when handing the ticket from hand to hand:

Are you pulling it out of my hands ?! What rudeness! I do not like this treatment. Get out of my bus!


The American concluded that the ubiquitous corporate smile is a kind of protective mask in the United States. From Russian habits, Maxwell accepted the custom of shaking hands and saying goodbye in the same way. In his homeland, it’s enough to say “Hay, how are you.” A handshake is very nice, in his opinion.

At the same time, Maxwell admits that his compatriots are more active and not indifferent than the Russians. For example, if there was a problem with garbage in a city, a group of citizens would immediately form, which would start a special campaign and find some fund that would help solve the problem. In Russia, they prefer to talk about how bad our affairs are.

Russians and Americans differ in relation to money. The former, as a rule, cannot afford serious accumulations that are constantly depreciating. But US citizens, thanks to a strong dollar, tend to constantly save up to get a decent bank account for old age.

Social


In this matter, Russia is a cut above the United States. This is a health system, and holidays, and decrees. Poor people are supported, while there is the opportunity to contact a private paid clinic. In the States, otherwise:

In America, if you cannot afford medical care - well, you are out of luck: you will die or remain sick.


About politics


The Russian system is more “stable” due to the fact that the first persons are practically irremovable. In the US, otherwise, Republicans regularly replace Democrats, and vice versa, political process, everyone is interested in the elections, news on the theme sound from each iron, everyone is interested.

What is better in the USA


In America, all kinds of services are much better. For example, a parcel through an online store can be delivered to the other end of the country in just a day.

What is better in Russia


Our country is world famous for its art, theaters, ballet, and literature. The Russian education system is better than the American in the sense that it provides a wider base. In the United States, when training, they prefer to focus on something specific, releasing very narrow specialists.

    Again, some rather fake garbage is posted, characters with unproven existence, incomprehensible "sources". Yes, everything is selected from that article very selectively.

    Why didn't you compare the most important thing now? SALARY! From this and education, and medicine, and housing, even security. And the courts, and the execution of court decisions? Why are there no "thieves in law" in the US? And try to break the law in the United States again? And you may never get out of prison! In general, the comparisons are not entirely correct. The main thing is that our government is introducing in Russia the worst that is in the United States, and the United States is trying at least the best that was in the USSR. Therefore, in Russia, the welfare of citizens is only getting worse, although we have not had a war for 75 years, and the USSR for 29 years!

      In Russia, the well-being of citizens is much higher than it was in the USSR. This is in the USSR, since the 70s, it has constantly worsened.
      For some time, it inertia worsened even after the death of the USSR.
      But then there was a marked increase in the welfare of Russian citizens. And it reached a level that Soviet citizens could only dream of in their pink dreams. And now, despite some deterioration in the welfare of citizens in recent years, this level (today), it is unattainable for citizens of the USSR.

    What is better in Russia and what is in the USA: American compared two countries

    An attempt to compare the warm with the soft can cause nothing but surprise.
    The USA and Russia are different planets. Generally different. Almost nothing is common. People are only physiologically a bit alike (not all, blacks in Russia are much smaller).

      But what, in order to understand the things that are obvious in economics and society, you need to be a graduate of the HSE?
      No, for anyone not even very educated, but quite sane person, it is within the power.
      But if there are no brains in the head, then, alas.

    From the point of view of the average static Ravshan it is, and for the Russian population, the conditions are becoming more unbearable every year and border on genocide, and worsen with every new pregnant train and plane.

      Uncle, everything is confused.
      Russians (Georgians, Estonians, etc.) were persecuted in the USSR. Since the representatives of the nation for "Soviet socialism" represented a danger.
      As for the Russian Federation, your statement is simply arrogant lies. Never has the population of the territories within the borders of the modern Russian Federation, regardless of nationality, lived as well and well off as it is now.

    After what the rabbis did in the 90s in their republics with the Russian population, it would be better for them to keep quiet, and not snarl, especially in a foreign country for them.

      Where does the Russian population come from in the national republics if, after the repression of the Bolsheviks, there was an extremely small number of them in the RSFSR?
      And then, it's not for me, I'm Russian.

      Well, certainly not Russian. Russian for all this would not be enough. Because even in the RSFSR there were extremely few of them.
      And the factories were worthless. Unless they were suitable for shopping centers.

    In the USA and the European Union "PIR IN TIME OF THE PLAGUE", which cannot last forever !!! All decorum has already been dropped. Even I understand that you cannot endlessly print money in TRILLIONS of $ (already EQ3) and buy up "toxic assets" at 50 billion $ / month. This, in terms of the US national debt alone, is 12 million rubles for a Russian family. Even little Greece grabbed $ 380 billion, Poland immediately grabbed $ 1990 billion back in the 200s for assistance in the collapse of the USSR, and then $ 50-80 billion a year in subsidies !!! And he is not going to give it back (the debt of the entire USSR was only $ 100 billion), and Ukraine just wanted to, but the Maidan was arranged too early, maybe it would have worked. Back in 2008, the German "Der Spiegel" diagnosed "EQUALITY OF HORROR". Earlier they crowed about "DEATH OF THE WEST". Great Britain and the Rothschilds tried to enslave again - to sign China to a new reserve currency as a draft currency, but China is still cautious, does not want a conflict with the United States.

    The plants were normal, but if patients were used to living in the Middle Ages, no plants could help them, so they returned to the Stone Age.

      They were great.
      From the good ones.
      And as soon as the people had the opportunity to choose, they stopped buying the products of these "normal factories". By voting against them with a wallet.

      In comparison with "Soviet socialism", it is impossible to return to the Stone Age. "Soviet socialism" itself was the bottom of human civilization. The Middle Ages.

          First there was the Middle Ages, then Russia developed almost to the level of a bourgeois state, and then society in the USSR was Bolsheviks in two stages degraded again to the level of the Middle Ages.
          A slightly different Middle Ages, of course, modified. But this did not change the essence, "Soviet socialism" functioned on the principles of the slave-owning OEF.

    I can not compare. I haven’t been to the USA and there is no desire to meddle there. They feed me well at home, and the best is the enemy of the good. And, in general, if the USA did not crap in the World, then 90% of all the troubles on Earth would cease to exist.
