Have you ever considered moving to another country because they have a better standard of living?
I've considered moving to another country for climate. Not for standard of living though.
The only place in Canada with a good climate is the west coast but it's expensive as hell and most places piss rain every other day.
I don't give a fuck about living standarts.
What I need is have to eat something, have a roof under my head and have access to information through internet.
There is no other interesting things in this life except knowledge. Life mostly is overrated.
Nowhere to go when you're already at the top.

NO , YOU WILL NOT TURN US IN TO A NEW PORTUGAL MAP MEME
I always wanted to move to Portugal when I went there. I didn't care it was a shithole since I was raised in a shithole. I only cared about the local company, and they fit the bill.
It's forever a fantasy though, considering I'm poor as fuck. Nice to think about from time to time
I want to live in good country with equality.
you know it's pretty tough when you literally became independent fifty years ago and just finished playing the mandatory game of civil war musical chairs countries go through.
i-i mean hurr durr niggers haha
you do have a point that Europe also looked pretty bad hundreds of years ago, but africa got so cucked that they are still there with all the technology and knowledge available to them. Their own fault to even get into that position.
>centralized governments a shit (cant project power into rural areas)
>infrastructure a shit (A SHIT)
>civil wars in the nation or the nation next door
>country full of completely uneducated people but can't develop an acceptable level of education since there's a shortage of teachers and there's no fucking money to put up schools and below-poverty line poor people tend to need their kids to help out on their subsitence farms so they've created a nice merry-go-round of no one learning shit ever
>it's amazing to the rest of the world how the starving and uneducated masses of wartorn shitholes are somehow stupid and can't make proper decisions in a voting booth, much less running a country
call me a nigger again i'm just being reasonable.
you guys had a country built beforehand.
i'm not saying africans are rocket scientists that were crushed by muh white man but i'm just not prepared to say that it's just because they're black that the continent is shit.
yes i realize i'm posting on 4chan
Africans are shit for some reason.
They have been shit since forever. They have always been living a step above monkeys, and sometimes not even that.
The whole region of SSA is fucked because of a number of circumstances, but the culture they developed and the genetic traits their environment selected for led to them being permafucked since 1500 AD.
Africa isn't the only country that literally became less developed after getting its independence. Maybe it's because they don't have Europeans around to show then what to do any more, like children whose parents leave unexpectedly.
My own country is so far down the shitter that there's no improving it. The people themselves are too fucking lazy to work and the bitch in charge of the government has nothing better to do than enrich herself while doing shit all for the people who actually voted for her.
I'm talking about Brazil, if you still haven't figured it out.
they developed societies that matched their environments. not exactly a shocking concept really. europe is mostly flat prairie that experiences definined, predictable seasons making it apt for farming. this caused europe to develop a population advantage for centuries. the density of population led to the creation of cities. the cities turned to nation states.
inevitably as nation states develop a middle class develops. the middle class enjoys certain benefits such as education and before you know it the country is on its way to not being shit.
not to mention that europe had the mediterrenean which was basically the internet of the classical age since it kept a bunch of different regions connected via trade.
subsaharan populations were never very dense and seldom connected to one another. the terrain didnt really help either and neither did tropical disease. it's fairly understandable that they failed to create any large-scale nations in the way europe did, even though they're now paying for it.
it's easy to assume people are dumb because it's in their blood. but we're looking at a chess game that's been going on for thousands of years where the pieces and board keeps changing, it's really not too interesting if we just focus on the last 5 moves on the game and resign ourselves saying "well niggers man.
>Why not improve your own country?
Need education,can't get it here
Need money,can't get it here
My field of expertise is not being funded here even though it's important
Can spend years not improving shit
Size and population means jobs are not available
>Why do so many people run instead of fighting?
because it's hard and may be detrimental, this isn't a fucking movie
>Why did my own ancestors do it?
size,money,age of country bla bla bla
Nice try, but I'm smarter and better educated than most actual Swiss people who were born and bred here. To be fair, if I were to search for a job in Brazil, I would probably be treated like a fucking God, why with me speaking five languages and being educated in Switzerland. But who cares about that shitty country if I can be here?
It depends on how much effort you put into your application. Swiss people at least don't hate Brazilians out of principle, but I can't say the same for Albanians, Ex-Yugoslavians, Germans and such.
I am a student, but I've applied for jobs before. I study computational linguistics, which is basically computer science combined with linguistics. We pay fairly little in taxes and I usually don't cross the border to buy food, but I know a lot of people who do.
>americans unironically buying into the system that was built to fucking them over
>americans unironically designing an india-tier caste system for themselves
>lel ur all idiots y dnt u guise like societies where the money stays within a single social class with the added benefit of zero social mobility
You can try, but we have very strict immigration laws, even for people who have high education. As I said, I have never been a foreigner in Switzerland, legally speaking, so I wouldn't really know.
capitalism isnt designed to fuck people over its designed to give a level playing field for everyone which just happens to fuck people over because not everyone is equal in terms of ability and luck
I moved to Canada for work years ago, I hated to do it and was so Americanized that I thought lesser of Canadians. After many years there I learned a lot about the country and came to love it. Last November I moved back to the states for work and I find the quality of life here comparatively abysmal. The difference is night and day. Say whatever you want about leafs, on average, their lives are much better than Americans for all but the top income earners.
>discussing economic policies on /int/
You probably think of your mother when you're in the shower
>a leftist calling anyone else brainwashed
I even cross the desert every two years to get that.
I love you Texas.
>frogposting economically illiterate leftist cuck who is too noncompetitive and uneducated to succeed in a society that doesn't hold his hand
I can smell the reddit and social science freshman radiating from you
>unironically believing america is still #1
>assuming i fully agree with either side
>assuming i'm american
its pretty safe to assume you are american when you post with an american flag. unless you are shitposting under a proxy or are a spicshit monkey living in america in which case your opinion doesnt matter for shit
I want to move to America because guns. Here it's a huge hassle to get anything and you can own centerfire semi-auto rifles. My dream is to move somewhere in the northern US near the woods and own a tons of rifles, and go hunting and shiet.
