America is some fucked up dystopian shit honestly like how are y’all even surviving? Paying for healthcare? $60,000 on tuition? POC getting shot in Wal-Marts? White men shooting up elementary schools? That’s terrifying I’m worried about all of you

America doesn’t seem that terribly horrible when you live here day to day and you’ve known nothing else but when somebody says something like this it fucks you up really good.

As someone living in Austria, it’s really hard to understand how living in the US actually is like. It blows my mind that you can’t just go and see a doctor when you’re sick and that going to college can get you some serious debt. I pay around 500$ tuition fees per semester and i am actually going to a private college - in a state college (which in Austria generally are rather good) you pay nothing. I pay nothing when i go to the doctor to get a prescription for meds. We pay more taxes and have obligatory monthly health care fees, but I’d rather pay more taxes than bleed out on the street, because i can’t afford an ambulance when i need one. Once an ambulance had to get me from the middle of the mountain, because I had a skiing accident and i paid nothing for it. Of course Austria isn’t the country of fairies and rivers of gold, but damn, i have a lot of respect for the average American citizen.

Ain’t it something that the police will protect the KKK when they want to protest but will bring out riot gear and dogs and tanks when black people are protesting police violence in our communities…

joey you talkin about the police and the kkk like that’s two separate groups
