    The survey contains 8 of the 10 largest economies in the world. China and India are missing.

    Some interesting stuff there. Americans are fine with diversity, we just dislike each other.

    America is top 3 most-divided all 4 categories: politics, race, religion and settlement geography.

    Makes sense, US has a two party system and the higest diversity rate. Conflicts will naturally arise

    South Korea seems more shocking but I don't know enough about their internal workings.

    Wtf does a 90% conflict rate mean exactly?

    Seems nebulous

    South Korea is still mostly Korean. It’s weird that they dislike other pole in their borders to that degree. Seems an odd inclusion

    I feel like a lot of the political division is finally subsiding and the people on the fringes and those who don’t pay attention to politics aren’t seeing it yet.

    The Supreme Court is actually a well functioning machine right now (thanks Donnie) and infrastructure spending and China are bipartisan issues. Healthcare and EITC are some of the most consequential and least controversial issues right now, because even Republicans see that their constituents love those things.

    Seems like the more racially homogenous countries often have less political tension. That makes a lot of sense tbh. Racial diversity isn't really a positive thing no matter what politicians and woke people tell you. It's just another element of tribalism to fight over.

    interesting. City/noncity split in Canada makes sense to me. See it all the time.

    Racial diversity is fine. Cultural "diversity" is what fucks us.

    That's what it means?

    That makes the poll less meaningful then. Certain countries culturally avoid conflict while others look to create it.

    French, Koreans, and Americans tend to be the type of who are comfortable with conflict generally. Japanese and Taiwanese, not as much.

    Then you have a place like Singapore, which is a large city that happens to be a country.

    This is really what it comes down to. The US is one of the most diverse modernized countries on the planet. There's bound to be conflict, especially when you only give people two choices.

    To be honest, even as much as I talk shit and “argue” on here, and all the division we see, I don’t buy that stat. The question is essentially how do you think others get along in regards to xyz. Seems like bs a little.
