It's also a rather middle to upper class problem. When someone who works retail gets sick and they stay home, they don't get paid that day.
If they get super sick and can't work anymore, the company usually just lets them go and hires someone else.

It's almost like we also have a system that tries not to pay people for not showing up to work.

@ewqua Short answer: The US, in an arrogant (my opinion) attempt to block the spread of communism/socialism, orchestrated the removal from office of prominent communists (or communist leaning or sympathizers). They were replaced by conservative US-approved politicians who were supposed to be leaders of republics and democracies. Hard-line conservatives who had political ambitions ended up easily corrupted, becoming dictators.
Unfortunately, the well-intentioned move to spread democracy led to a wave of dictatorships who corruptly suppressed democratic principles like free speech, voting, free elections, etc.

This is a survey of citizens in the countries, not the government. Point still stands.

@ewqua Venezuela is frequently brought up because it's a perfect modern example of socialism failing again. I bring up Venezuela often because I've studied South America extensively, and Venezuela has had the most noteworthy current events, like the citizens and the government literally warring with each other.
Back to free speech. Looking at the last 50 years, in Chile and Argentina: speaking out against the government in private gets you pushed out of a helicopter. In the Philippines: if you disagree with the government you get "salvaged" (you disappear). In the UK, apparently the police can track you down if you say racist stuff online.
Those are just the first things that come to mind without doing any digging.

There's gravity in space. There's gravity everywhere. Destroyed ships should fall or drift towards the largest object near them.
The ships also probably fall suddenly because their anti gravity generators have been destroyed, and they're heckin heavy.

I'm pretty proud of freedom of speech. That's not super confusing if you're from Venezuela.

Retail employee: No, you can't bring pets into this store.
Millennial: (How can I make this awful pug suddenly into a service animal?)
It goes both ways, and I will not stop pointing it out on these posts that try to put one generation on a pedestal while crapping on another.

Reminds me of a sweet co-op in Spain called Mondragón. They've got a rule that the highest paid employee can't make more than 6x the lowest paid employee. So if a CEO is making 600 grand, the janitor makes 100 grand.
