you bring up a very good point. i don't know why human nature is like this.
it's not just comparing one country to another, i've noticed it in the workplace as well. if a new person comes in and talks too much about the way things were done at their old workplace, trying to take the good from their old situation and apply it to the new, somehow that never seems to go over well. personally i would think we would want to examine the best (and worst) practices of others, at least for ideas if nothing else.
