I realize the title & subject of this video may seem extremely obvious to many of you.
But half of the people following this page are Americans, and along with the 330 million others who make up my country, a large amount of them probably wouldn’t realize my points in this video.
One of my biggest issues with American society is that many of us are so trapped in our own ‘bubble’ and rarely look outside our borders to gain any value. We turn on local news instead of world news. We think the American dream is the only dream. We travel domestically and are scared to go abroad.
The truth is, that I am constantly meeting smart, innovate and successful people EVERYWHERE I go — even in the smallest of countries.
What are your thoughts on this? Do you also think Americans are trapped in a bubble?
P.S. This video is in not hating on the USA or American culture. I am a proud American and I will always support my country. I just felt the need to raise awareness that we aren’t the only place with smart people and good colleges. The entire world is.
