Most people have a blurred perspective of their country or culture, especially if they have been living there all their lives. Once they spend some time away, it can change their views greatly. They can see the flaws of their country or nation, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. The same applies to Americans, who are often blind to the country’s faults. Here are some things many Americans don’t seem to realize about America and the rest of the world.
7. The quality of life is not so great

The trouble is, most Americans believe they are extraordinary. This shared delusion also keeps perpetuating large social inequalities and the quality of life for the average citizen lower than most other developed countries. It’s the price Americans pay to maintain their growth and economic dominance.
