That line of thought of "inequality evil" not only is what keeps your shithole country a shithole, but ironically, also exacerbates the problem you claim to care most about, because the biggest inequalities have always come at the hand of the most statist societies.
You talk about poverty??? every country has poverty, what bothers you is that U.S also has powerhouses and allows the poorest to TRULY reach the stars, your statist fascistic types are always trying to downplay this, calling it a myth, and so much more very weak and banal tactics it makes perfect sense that your biggest "success" story is a shithole, Europe...is a shithole, SCANDINAVIA are shithole countries.
You have been so terribly brainwashed into believing that U.S is a country with 3 big cities and the rest is poor, when its actually the other way around, U.S has a fuckton of gigantic cities very diverse in every sense of the word, and the poverty is not only minute but they have much better chance of going all the way up than anywhere else, perhaps not nearly as much as before, but definitely more than all of the countries you think are best.
"social depth" the shit idiotic leftist trash will say these days...
