There is definitely a lot to criticize America about & we all do it, but like you pointed out,
There are other places that qualify as number one systems, btw. Any democracy in the developed world will work. The thing about number one systems is that they are preferable to stuff like civil war in Bosnia, genocide in Sudan, poverty in Mexico, prison in China, starvation in the Sahel, repression in Egypt, and illiteracy in Afganistan.
Apart from illiteracy in Afghanistan, how about repression of women, not just there, but throughout most of the rest of the world, especially Asia & Africa? I guess Vas is a guy.
