Society has broken down so much, the internet is the only way to connect sometimes. People in this country don't hang out, converse, and socialize with friends they way they do in European countries. Instead people go to bars alone, try to meet people, and get DUI's trying to drive home alone without a designated driver friend. People in USA are too snobbish to speak to strangers. Plus, what would they have to talk about, Kardashians?

Better yet instead of bitching about everyone else, you and your friends can go out and leave everyone else alone.

BlueRose was pointing out that in Europe people are not as spread out as in the US and have a better sense of comradery. It might have something to do with all the wars they had to experience over the years.

Or the fact that there are so many different countries packed into the area that they are.

If you are so despondent about this country why don't you move to one of these great European countries you so admire? What is keeping you here?

Financial!

Yeah but if the systems are so much better in these other countries you should be able to move there and they will give you a job and benefits better than you have here, no?

Are you aware that many many Americans at this point are crippled by debt. The only reason the economy is still going is because we are living off of loans and credit. It's kind of difficult to just blow it off and move to France or wherever.

But you are telling us that if you do move there, you have a fair system with a good paying job and benefits. You can walk away from the debt and it won't follow you. So I don't understand.

How do you walk away from debt? Well even if you can and don't mind being dishonest in my case the debt which is in the tens of thousands would just transfer to my parents who cosigned my loans when I was a teenager. Seeing as how they are in their 50s and both still work about 50 hours a week I would feel like an asshole every moment of my life.

Um, I don't think you get it. I can't afford to move there.
