I disagree. In my experience at least, the more rural parts of many European countries are a lot more like America than New York City. (Which is not like anywhere else that I know of.)

Who are you to tell people what to sell and what to eat? Besides, an occasional hamburger never hurt anyone.
Me, of course, since I am the ultimate arbiter of taste :-)

And I believe we were discussing McDonalds, not hamburgers, which if done right can be quite tasty. (You should try my teriyaki mushroom cheeseburger sometime.) The problem is that McDonalds (and similar fast food chains) simply do not do food right.

Then there's the whole cultural thing. Why bother to go anywhere, when it's just like the place you left?
