    What makes the United States the greatest country in the world and not countries like Australia, Canada, New Zealand, United Kingdom or any of the EU countries?

    Here is the answer offered by Will McAvoy (Jeff Daniels) in “The Newsroom”.

    There is absolutely no evidence to support the statement that we’re the greatest country in the world. We’re 7th in literacy, 27th in math, 22nd in science, 49th in life expectancy, 178th in infant mortality, 3rd in median household income, number four in labor force and number four in exports. We lead the world in only three categories. Number of incarcerated citizens per capita, number of adults who believe angels are real and defense spending, where we spend more than the next 26 countries combined, twenty-five of whom are allies.

    I’m sure that any fair-minded person will accept that whilst being very slick this answer is somewhat duplicitous. Perhaps a more meaningful question would elicit a better response.
