@julianruf it's because the US is not rich or well developed. not for the vast majority of people here, not anymore

@lambdatronic That’s probably a good point, thank you. While I’ve heard about this mentality before, it’s something you don’t always think of when you don’t life in the US. Here in Germany, for example, people have a higher propensity to follow rules, which in these times isn’t the worst thing :)
