The USA are a backward country

As a consequence, by far the highest gun-related homicide rate among western countries, with periodic mass shootings. You would think that they'd do something about it, but no, just more of the same.

They even have a law that allows the president to invade La Hague if a US citizen were detained there to be judged by the International Criminal Court. Again, all other Western countries are part of the ICC.

AM I supposed to say "Here we go again"?
kk fine
Ah here we go AGAIN

Hates are welcome XD
@Alientcp one of your many problems is that you compare the US with "your country", which happens to be under-developed (no offence). So yeah, no surprise they do better. But if you compare the US with countries whose economy is similar, they do worse on every regard I mentioned in #1.

Probably because the people doing the rankings are some upper/middle-class consumers. As I said once, if you care for blind consumerism and having everything bigger, dumber and more unhealthy, then yes, the US is the place to go.

Except by Australians. We know that Straya is best, but we all have the bucket-list entry "Visit Disneyland".

edit to correct total misreading of #23
Straya is first amongst equal best places to live.
@Alientcp how to obtain an illegal firearm in two easy steps:
1) Go to your local grocery store and legally buy your favourite gun. If you are a minor, ask for your big brother, cousin, or gang leader to do it for you.
2) remove the serial number.
And voilà! You can now go shoot your neighbour in all anonymity.
