European living in the US. I’m really struggling to enjoy living here because it’s such an individualistic society. The levels of inequality & poverty I see are heartbreaking.

The whole mask debacle really cemented the fact that I don’t want to bring children up in this type of society.

No respect for others, and all me, me, me & my freedoms.

Check yourself USA.

I don’t know if you can change a culture in a country of this size without a seismic or catastrophic change such as border changes or war.

I think that people discount how important national identity is, and to what extent seeing a place of value and belonging contributes to it (eg middle class - which was at leas the uniting factor for white people after ww2 - albeit just white people sadly :( )

Why do we need to be more “collective” and not maintain our culture of “rugged individualism”? Collective-based societies didn’t fair any better than the U.S. with COVID except Sweden which did not go into economic or societal lockdown. As we get further from the events we can see the exploitation of COVID for political gain. Not a single death nationwide from the flu, restrictions lifted as soon as Biden was sworn in, and so on. States like Texas, Florida, and other conservative states have faired the pandemic well and are recovering faster than blue states. We are not going to be a democratic socialist country, it is not in our nature.

Also, I don’t think we need the worker protections of say, France, nor is anyone proposing them. However it’s painfully obvious that even while we want to retain some of the individualistic aspects of a free market system, our markets are heavily weighted towards perpetuating the success of the holders of concentrated economic assets. We actually don’t have a particularly free market anymore which is why we need these “socialist” measures you’re in accurately identifying to help correct for these externalities and market distortions

I started my role as an investment analyst 2 years ago (just before Covid shutdown!) and am finally starting to go to in-person events again. I went to some networking drinks hosted by a fund manager last night - I was the only female in a room of 20 males. Not totally shocking I guess, but still so disappointing. No female investment staff or allocators in attendance. WHY!

Sometimes I feel stuck. I am 26, M, I lived and studied abroad - then covid happened, I graduated from my MSc and thankfully found a job that after 1 year helped me to land with KPMG (always wanted to do consulting). Work is going well, I am happy, got good friends and family but all my friends have left the city where I live and I would love to go back abroad. Inter company mobility I reckon is the only solution - for context I live in south of Europe. Just needed to write it down I guess.

I found a new job (huzzah!) and turned in my 2 weeks notice yesterday. But I started feeling crummy last night and went to the doctor for a COVID test today. Lab results already came back positive. So now I feel super guilty about basically calling in sick to my last two weeks of work...should I try and push out my start date to help out current employer? Feel like current supervisor is going to throw a hissy fit.

I was with a partner from a well know national firm. We spoke on COVID, and he said that a lot of things will change after the election. I have heard a lot of people say that. What does it mean? What does it mean when people say that who think Biden will win? What does it mean when people say that who think Trump will win?
