  • It's the country I love the most and the one I wanna live and dying.

  • And it's the country everybody looks at for leadership.

  • But in our fascination with the American dream, we forget that the US has gotten a lot of things wrong and countries, like even developing ones, have managed to get some of them right.

  • That's why I went on a mission around the world to Zimbabwe, Zimbabwe, Rwanda, Japan and South Africa.

  • To show the things they got right while the US still gets wrong in the journey starts in the underdeveloped country off Zimbabwe.

  • In other countries, people think this bag will either get them super rich or bombed to death by someone that looks like me.

  • I'm sorry.

  • It's just the way it is.

  • It's so safe in Tokyo that you could just leave your bike unattended, leave your phone unattended and even put your money unattended in the middle of the street.
