If so, is it true in every respect?
On my other blog, Live in the Philippines, We had a rather extensive series of articles based on the theme “Philippines vs. USA”.
This series of articles got started when one of the semi-regular writers there, Jay Stainback, wrote a few such articles. Jay went on to write more and more such comparison articles. Later, my son, Aaron, wrote some similar comparisons too. I also got into the mix as well with some such comparison articles.
In these articles, did the USA always come out the winner on such comparisons? No, it did not. But, some of those articles were sometimes slanted toward things that were certainly more favorable to the Philippines. Things like who had the best fruits, who had the best weather, and such. Well, the Philippines is a tropical country, so of course, it has a much wider selection of fruits and also has great weather.
Frankly, I believe that many Americans, especially those who have not traveled to other countries would be shocked to learn that the USA is not the best in everything. Most Americans think that the USA is the best at virtually every aspect of life. It is not always true, though.
Now that I have been living in the Philippines for a number of months after living nearly 20 years in the Philippines, I have decided to start making some similar comparisons, and doing it “from the other side of the pond”.
Some of my comparisons might be shocking
In some categories, I think that many will be shocked that the Philippines will actually be better in some things that the USA really should be better. I am not going to give examples, because that will give away some future articles, but you will find that at least in my opinion the Philippines will beat the USA in things that the USA has a natural advantage in.
But, my opinions will reflect my true life experiences, and I will detail why I sometimes side with life in the Philippines.
The USA is also better in some categories as well, which should not be shocking.
So, tune back in and see where I stand on the Philippines vs. USA argument! I am sure you will enjoy my thoughts. You might not always agree, but that’s OK!
