But before you start looking your nose down at us, the same disparities apply to other western industrialized nations. Perhaps not in the same magnitude, but certainly in the same direction.

Those who live in Nepal, Bhutan, New Guinea, Paraguay, or Angola or similar places have every right to look down their noses at us.

Pray tell me where I looked down my nose at USAmericans?  I just wanted to remind you, that the rest of the world is 95%.

And BTW, if by "fill up the Internet" you mean number of Internet users, the USA is far behind China with India as a close third.

Everybody is entitled to have their own opinion, but not their own facts.
