This study makes quite interesting reading, not the least because my country won!

It seems that the concept of freedom is actually fairly poorly understood by many people, it is also interesting that countries traditionally seen as an example of holding 'freedom' ideals are actually steadily sliding down the list.

Having great wealth is not necessarily an indicator of real freedom, I'm broke and I feel free as a bird!

1 New Zealand
2 Netherlands
3 Hong Kong
4 Australia
5 Canada
6 Ireland
7 United States of America
8 Denmark
9 Japan
10 Estonia

Now this is what I am talking about! I thank you for following my posting suggestions for this week. You have it all, anti-US sentiment, veiled as constructive criticism, all the while really just trying to be an ass hat, and telling us all how great your own country is, and you didn't use the word gun.

See people, this is how a proper anti-American post should be presented. Good job Shunda.
