Reader comment on item: [Symposium:] Why Does the World Hate America?
in response to reader comment: Misguided opinions about America

Submitted by Kit (India), Jan 6, 2010 at 12:20

Dear Bob, I read your post and I think you were seriously misinformed on the facts. But seeing that you are from the country, I can understand why. I am not going to comment on the "freedom" bid or the legal drinking age of your country but your proclamation on the medical technologies and abilities that only America possesses is unfounded and baseless. The truth is it cost more to get a treatment there than it does anywhere else in the world for the same illness and trust me, The United States is not the only place one can or chooses to go for treatment of cancer. There are other countries that do just as good a job if not better, and at a cheaper price.

Also, I know people personally who had been denied treatment in the the US and have died because it. About the economy, all I have to say is take a look around you. If the US economy was so great, you wouldn't have suffered the worst recession of this day and age. Another issue is regarding France. The French had always protested when they wanted things changed. This is their way of getting the government to listen. In the US of A, people protest; does the government listen? or does it declare such acts as disruptive to society and arrest it's own voters? so do not talk about Americans having the freedom and power to change the government because you would only be lying to yourself. You are only conditioned to think so. The French government on the other hand listens to its people for most parts and if I had to choose, I would choose the French "Socialist" Government over the American counterpart any day. France may not be as rich or as powerful but it offers a more fulfilling life to people. You don't know it because you have not experienced it. It's good to love your country but be aware of what they feed you because they might just feed you poison. If you don't believe me, you can ask the Germans. They know this well. New Year greetings and Regards, Kit.
