I am watching a debate happening in Britain about it leaving the European Union, or staying in it.


At one point one of the panelists said: "I live in the greatest country on Earth..." speaking about Britain and I thought: "I heard Canadian politicians say that". I also heard many politicians from the United States saying they live in the greatest country on the planet. So, we can't all be living in the greatest country on Earth - who's lying? Or, an even more important question in my opinion is: how does it help to state that You, or I live in the "greatest country in the world"? Is this not a bit like the children arguing at the playground that their dad is the strongest?

    Thank You for your answer. I hold dual citizenship so, I don't have a "best country".

    Thank You for your answer. I also live in Canada and think it is an amazing country but I was born and raised in Romania and I think that is also an amazing country. So, I don't have a "greatest country". Both citizenships I have I am grateful for.
