The U.S. does a lot of things through private litigation that other countries do through administrative regulation/enforcement. E.g. in European countries you have laws and agencies you can turn to if your employer treats you unfairly. In the U.S., even things like racial discrimination in the work force are left to private lawsuits. Basically, there's no free lunch.
