Response to it's the same ole argument
Amerikans are stressed out people who live fairly unhappy lives compared to other countries. Are you proud of being overworked wage-slaved who work solely to make others rich? Do you enjoy having little leasure time to yourself? Work should be a means to an end, not your life's sole purpose.
Europeans work less and have a more happy and eased-back lifestyle than Amerikans, that's the truth. What good is all this work if you are constantly in poor mental and physical health and don't get much time to enjoy life?
You seem to think other countries are just 'slackers', which is just a poor excuse to justify the Amerikan lifestyle. Ever heard of the phrase 'Work smarter, not harder?'. Europe is doing just fine, thanks, and they don't need to necessarily be the #1 top dog. If the price to be #1 means sacrificing happiness and the environment, than you can have it.
I don't mind working hard, but I shouldn't have to live as a semi-oppressed worker bee
