Greatest Country in the world
« on: October 28, 2015, 12:08:15 AM »
In your opinion what is the greatest country in the world at this point of time.
For me it has to be Iceland. Its has wonderful scenery and its government stands up for its peoples interests.

At this point of time it doesn't get bright until 9am, a good place for a lie in.

Whats the criteria?

People?
Culture?
Governance?
Weather?
Cusine?
Wealth?
Happiness?
Landscape?
Religion/Philosophy?


I'd imagine all of those would contribute but what should their weighting be?

I'd say  Bhutan would strike fairly high in many of the above categories

Barman in local pub banned phones for exactly that reason...

Internet ruins a good arguement
Think like a wise person but communicate in the language of the people

If the criterion is 'which country does most good in the world?', here's the suggested answer.

It's worth watching all through, but skip to 12:21 if you can't wait.

I missed this but does the index measure what people globally judge to be good acting countries or does it directly measure the good that countries do? Still cool either way but if its the former i can't help but think of Twain's quip, "give a man a reputation of an early riser, and he can sleep till noon..."
"One of the most salient features of our culture is that there is so much bullshit"
