How's it in the SA regarding personal independence, self-policing each other, and petty everyday requirements compared to the west? There should be supposedly less amount of modern civilization. Do you feel then there also being less restricted than in the west?I’ve been in S. America for the last 1.5 years. The novelty has faded to say the least. It’s funny, it’s the little things that weigh on you. S. Americans can’t make a pizza, for example. Every small town in USA has a place with better pizza than any place in S. America. Seems absurd…but it matters.
It’s a million small things that dig you. That’s separate from the daily idiotic, illogical things that happen in LatAm. The people really are brain dead. Nobody trusts anyone (they do listen to the gov’t however- masks)…and it shows in their society.
It’s not a question of $$ or language- I speak Spanish and I don’t have to work to generate $$. For all it’s cultural degeneracies it really is tough to beat USA. We have simply created a society with the best services, standards, and opportunities. And because of that I would say if you’re American your best bet is to stay and find conservative, like-minded individuals.
Can you live there more "individually", or society there is expecting you to be part of the herd? (and local Govt too).
I'm asking because the EU seems to change to a place pretty dystopic if you are not a covid vaxx believer, and SA was historically an escape room for many.
