Wtf are you even talking about? This is some extreme ethnocentrism, right here. I've been to China, the Philippines, South Korea, Thailand, and Singapore. Yes, the culture is different, but maggot filled diapers in the gutter and trenches of shit different? No. Makes me think you either A) have never actually been to the places you named, or B) just enjoy being an ethnocentric, "America First" bigot. I'm gonna go with B. You want to talk poor quality of life, try Googling Flint, Michigan.
