Welcome on planet earth !!!
In Germany a soccer "star" ate a steak covered with gold .... smother on it
I will not offend any US american ... but your social system is ... mhhh .... ähhhh ... yes ....
Keep in mind there is a lot of propaganda fed to you about how your medical system is the best. As we probably have here. I work for a hospital. People aren't dying in the streets like you may hear in your media. It's interesting how many Canadians I deal with who come here for care and pay out of pocket. If your systems were that great this wouldn't be happening. I work with brits, Canadians, etc. They all say, "Trust me, you don't want socialized medicine here. Don't mess with what you have." It's similar to how a lot of foreigners that come here are surprised they don't see people dying in the streets from guns like the wild west and like your media projects to justify your strict gun confiscation laws. In fact, most of them want to move here after they visit.
No system is perfect. The difference here is people have a choice if they want to put their money towards care or not. Some want their cake and eat it too. Buy new cars and expect healthcare for free (which they pretty much get because they can't be turned down if they come to a hospital with urgent needs). In your countries, you don't. You're just taxed to hell and forced to like it and defend it.
Mods, if this it too political delete it. However, I felt a need to defend. Each system has their own benefits and negatives, but none are perfect, including those criticizing ours.
The problem with a post-truth society is all you have to do is seek someone that says what you want to hear and that becomes your reality. Confirmation bias and we are all guilty of it.
