    Obviously UNAWARE of the hand America plays to decimate countries around the globe!

    That being so, hardly a surprise people flee from economic necessity to america.

    When was the last time A MILLIONAIRE fled to America?

    THEN there is the unsavory nature of america. Utter greed!

    American salaries are high compared to many other countries, making it possible for an immigrant to live here and still support family members back in their home country where the average annual income may be less than $3,000/year. Unlike some countries (such as Japan), the U.S. is diverse enough that people from other countries can blend into our society without standing out as being different.

    The promise of the American Dream (although unachievable) is a significant factor.

    In the 80's, 90's  and some drift left over in the 00's until Trump. America had this amazing brand where people of other countries would think of America and react like "Wow." You can make dreams come true and really elevate your standards of living. $5 a day could support one of my family members who are struggling or less depending on which country a person is from. From all the movies distributed all around the world people really loved the lifestyle and messages of who Americans were in these movies. 

    Recently, when I go abroad now, there's a huge difference from the 90s. My relatives abroad used to envy but now they think. I've been there's it's really not that much different from here. They now say I don't see the big deal of America, they'd rather visit other countries like Switzerland. America doesn't have the same appeal as it used to because other countries have caught up and surpassed it like East Asia used to envy America in the 90s but now they have better technology, Korea & Japan have faster and more accessible internet than here, better access and quality of medicine, better standards for living, best trains, better infrastructure, people are more educated, education is more accessible than it is here. In Korea, it is illegal to charge more for faster internet to households because it'll further the income gap. For additional educational programs and it doesn't matter if it's by a university or not Korean citizens get a subsidy from the government 40-60% off the original program price. The effort to minimize the income gap in laws are more proactive than here. Korea, Singapore, China & Japan. At least the of countries are always make it to the top 5 list for best education. America is we do really well might make it somewhere on the top 20 but it doesn't always. 

    Part of the reason for that is culture. Korean students wake up at 5 or 6am go to school, go to after school programs, then more education for a skill they're learning, go to the library or some other study sessions. By the time they make it home, it's night and they study until it's midnight. I taught English abroad. Korea, China & Japan all are extremely competitive for education in that way. This translated to their work lives too. Korea & Japan have the biggest suicide rates in the world because of the pressure and competition of work-life and education. They've achieved, great standards of living, economies and are the most educated but their quality of life is still different from ours even though have globalized and look more like America in terms of the corporate lifestyle.

    What makes America special is that anybody can come here and be whoever they want to be. People who came here to study from Japan and other countries wanted to stay because they felt more accepted, more like themselves and didn't have to stick to the strict social norms of their own countries. The pressure and strictness for people to be a certain way are very overwhelming in other countries. The acceptance of diversity as something as liberal as LGBT was what made America leading after the other countries caught up and modernized. Unless, you live and immerse yourself in the modern cultures of other countries you won't understand that America has had this special and rare gift. It's diminishing because of the politics here has become more tense. Conservative Americans want this strict culture to adhere to everyone here that they feel like are at risk from Liberals but no one is actually trying to abolish the culture they want. People may call it bigoted but it's not under threat. Criticism isn't a threat, it just gives people a chance to re-evaluate what they're doing because everyone is responsible to check themselves and the world is constantly evolving. People just have different opinions. Strict conservative culture needs the freedom to exist but it is not why people love America. It's because of the freedom of expression and ideas, everyone who comes here is welcome to be who they are. That was true for the ex-nazis that ran away here, that's how free America has been. KKK has been legally able to do their rallies even though the KKK is evil This is why protests need to be allowed and counter-protesters need to be separated from each other so people can have the freedom to express themselves. SJWs ruined it by overcorrecting to a point where people felt like they can't speak. Staunch Conservatives want everyone to be like them. America used to be a place where if the Amish wanted to live the way they wanted to live they had the freedom to do so. Other are other countries in this world that are beginning to show they have more tolerance than America like Canada. The film industry in Canada has been booming. American film really made other countries fall in love with America. When I'm nomadic and live in different countries, everybody knows American films, it plays in their major movie theaters. As an American, the nationalism in me is feeling the insecurity that our holding in the world has been diminishing since the 80s & 90s.
