Wait, shouldn't that be "we're number 1" like we so often hear? Probably should be, but isn't, alas.

A COMPARISON BETWEEN THE US AND OTHER RICH NATIONS

" First place on the Personal Freedom Sub-Index went to Canada. Then came Norway, New Zealand, Australia, Sweden, Denmark, Ireland, and Iceland. The United States followed in ninth place. Belgium, Uruguay and Finland took tenth, eleventh and twelfth, respectively.

At the bottom of the list, Iran, Egypt and Pakistan placed 108th, 109th and 110th in terms of their citizens' personal freedom, respectively."

You are welcome to chat about Freedom all you like. I just didn't want you to feel bad about being number nine when you are number one is so many other wonderful ways, like dead children.

All those "FIRSTS" suggest there is something exceptional about America.

Are you, Oh vandalizer of prostitutes, that you want to contradict your Failed Messiahj on that point?

...Oops, seems the we're no. 9 was a bit overly optimistic,
United States ranked 21st worldwide in personal freedom

"

United States ranked 21st worldwide in personal freedom
November 19, 2014


We're not number one. In fact, when it comes to personal freedom, we're not even close — so says a new international ranking from the Legatum Institute in London. No less than 20 other nations ranked ahead of America in regards to personal freedom, which is calculated based on protections of civil rights and civil liberties. This ranking has dropped significantly in recent years; the U.S. was in ninth place just four years ago."

Gotta check page dates more closely. :)

As to how do we rank by state, interesting question. Looking for such a ranking now.
