These foreign government advisories about travelling to the U.S. are pretty funny [https://www.yahoo.com...] For instance, here is France's advisory:

"It is recommended to adopt a reserved attitude toward persons of the opposite sex," when in the U.S., at least according to the French government, which implores its citizens to basically, behave. Americans as a people are very respectful of the law, says France, which is why possessing narcotics, going topless in public, or inappropriately joking with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) are all actions that come with consequences. "In many States, the possession of firearms is permitted and common. Visitors must therefore, in any circumstance, keep their calm"" say the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs" website.

My fiancee is a Filipino. At first, he was very reluctant to come here and wanted us to live in the Philippines. He feared the gun violence, the racism, and lack of tolerance. He told be one time that the USA was just as bad on human rights as Russia or China.

I think most people in the USA have an overinflated sense their presumed superiority.
