Good thing the US population is not too large or there would be more chaos

Good thing the US population is not too large or there would be more chaos. Yeah and the media tries to call all other countries bias. I think the US government should send their soldiers to the USA and first clean up their own dirty problems first before trying to tell others what to do.

Who would want to live in the US? Only those that read the non-stop US all good and can do no wrong newspapers own by US interest in foreign countries(There are so many of these outlets).

Is it to do with genes and genetic inheritance? This is a serious question.

The reason I say so is because there were mostly criminals that emigrated there in the beginning. Then they had a serious gun culture with all sorts of gangs running everything. Then decades of breeding could make people tend towards crime.

Anyway thats the thought thats running through my mind and I wanted to share it.

I think that they have better sense than to do that.

The American politicians know what a bunch of psychos and retards there are in the American army. Can you imagine unleashing that bunch on American cities. There will be nothing left.

Flawed Judicial System...

The Judicial System of the United States has been hijacked by the lawyers, who drag out trials and plea bargain for lesser sentences rather than letting the criminals receive a proper punishment.

The prisons have become resorts, with no real punishment except restricting criminals freedom to leave the institution.

If prisons enforced harsh punishment (making big rocks into small rocks) 12 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year for the entire sentence, the criminals might have a real deterrent.  Life sentences are not even really life sentences.  All states have different percentages of sentence served before a criminal can be released early.  This is why I favor the death penalty over life sentences for premeditated first degree murder crimes.

I am not advocating harsh penalties for all sentences (so called 'white-collar' crimes).  But murder, rape, kidnapping, child-molestation, etc. are some where prisoners should be sentenced to a prison in Northern Alaska where they can break rocks up for 30+ years.  No chance of parole.  No television.  No books.  Just a small cold room with little interaction with fellow prisoners.

chang, do you think genes and genetic inheritance is the source of corruption in China? I'm curious as to what your views are.

The definition of crimes is different in different countries. The reporting of many incidences are at different rates.
Whilst in China, I've seen things that would have resulted in lawsuits/ jailtime back home. The concept of liability is totally different, the personal worth concept is difference, etc.
There is no accurate way to compare the stats because the reporting of such is not equal.
