I'm in America. The only other country I would be willing to move to is Switzerland, the rest of Europe is shit, especially any country in the EU. Low taxes, can keep my gun, and my favorite fighter was from there.
Fuck you faggot i live in commieblock relatively north (estonia) and only reason im a robot because nearest friends i have live at 20 km. Im in the middle of the fucking woods 6 hours of daylight rains all the time only people who live here are old people and few teenagers who are full autists. Only human i have seen today is my mom. The crippling lonelyness only gets worse and worse. The worst part is that i even my thoughts start to bundle up and it keeps getting harder and harder to interact like a normal person. Hell even this text is hard to follow.
Choosing to be something as misrable as robot is something i never understand.
>>26129982 Not the post you responded to, but Singapore is pretty authoritarian, drug users, even weed smokers are put to death. You get outrageous fines even for spitting gum outside. You also have to pay a lot of money for a license to own a car, not a driver's license, but after that, if you want to be able to drive a car there you have to buy a license that is limited to a certain amount of people for 10s of thousands of dollars.
>>26129966 National service, which I guess explains why I'm bitter. 2 years of poorly paid servitude for a country I never really lived in and kinda been trapped for half a year extra unable to leave.
>>26129982 Eh, the living standards there are decent for the region. For the middle class (note: middle class Singaporean = upper class North American almost) the living quality is what I'd describe as equal to the North American standard, but there's also a very visible difference between the lower classes not as visible in the west.
I'm mainly bitter about National Service, but that in mind I will say that Singapore really only benefits the rich. From what I've seen, a large or sizable amount of the population lives what I would describe as the "second world" lifestyle despite Singapore supposedly being a first world country- the city also has no minimum wage (with the unspoken minimum being 6$ SGD) and an unfree culture.
The lower/working classes here live absolutely terribly. The middle-class lifestyle, from my point of view, is not as good as the working-class lifestyle in Canada, what with the expenses of the city, everything being so cramped, etc- people stay at their parents' homes well into their 30s and if they don't get married their 40s, and it just really isn't compatible.
And of course, there's the NS which I mentioned, which makes me really bitter because I really am being treated like (and I am) the property of the government.
>>26130249 I had the bad luck to be born here, to Singaporean parents.
I came here intending to serve NS at first while my life was in a bit of a rut, but by now I realize I've been cucked majorly by Singapore- I can't denounce my citizenship till I'm 21 and they would likely not allow it anyways considering I've yet to do NS- and they basically would try to keep me trapped in the country for 2 years. As soon as I'm done I'm getting rid of my citizenship rather than spending 40 years "obligated" to be a reservist.
>>26130250 Eh, the upside is cheap good food and transit. I'd say shopping is also an upside but while there are malls everywhere, everything is bloody expensive.
Overall I'd say more than anything else (as anything you'll read about Singapore will say) the food is notable. Culture-wise, sightseeing, etc... Singapore is actually pretty lacking. Good food, if not probably one of the best places around for food though. Not that I'd traveled much or at all before coming here.
>>26130423 From all the Muslim countries surrounding Singapore, supposedly. (Malaysia/Indonesia)
However, honestly Singaporeans are typically quite well brainwashed by their one-party government. When talking to people I've heard on multiple occasions things such as that "Indonesia and Malaysia would invade Singapore immediately without NS" or that "Singapore is the best place for Chinese, elsewhere including the west you are a second class citizen."
One common example used (or rather the only one) is an attack over 50 years ago by Indonesia called "konfrontasi" or some shit, despite the complete irrelevance to the modern political landscape for the region.
I'm not even completely against conscription (despite disagreeing with it strongly and having no interest in serving Singapore of all places) but the way it is done here really pisses me off. It's basically a way for the local government to drain more labor from its citizens without paying properly at all- with the average conscript being paid 560$ after the latest increase. Note that Singapore is an extremely expensive country, too.
I'm being fined for coming a year late. Adding to that, I can't leave the country. Singaporean NS is particularly unfree, though I suppose that could be described about just about anything in Singapore compared to the west. Singaporeans are generally ungrateful about NS- not that I would expect gratitude, but it's basically seen as "what everyone does" and left at that. If anything there are those who are angry at expats or women for not doing it, and the concept of both groups doing it is considered open for discussion.
>>26128906 Somewhere isolated and serene iceland seems like a good option but any where that's far away from people would be fine for me, preferably somewhere colder
but that would only work if I had the funds to maintain myself outside of society, and to somehow receive mail and internet service, so I guess a more practical place to be would be like any sort of rural area in a first world nation
Someplace cold and isolated, and that isn't overrun with fundies, rednecks or other far-right assholes. Maybe Norway, Iceland or Canada. Living expenses are probably outrageous in those countries though. Not sure about Canada per se, but I think everything is a bit more expensive than it is in the U.S. Sure, they have rednecks, but I don't think they're entirely like the gay-bashing, cousin-humping, Bible-thumping variety you'd find here in the South.
>>26130863 I'm Brazilian I guess Spain if there was no crisis, i know the language and the culture reasonably well. If not that, maybe Denmark or Canada. Although i would probably get a lot of shit in Europe for looking a bit like a kebab.
