@garbados it's hard trying to speak up about this because people are so used to the status quo that they can only view things from a perspective of the current state of affairs. Like, yeah, restaurants are probably going out of business over this and people need to pull stunts to stay afloat.
But that's because we built the system like this. We can build it a different way. This is not ordained by nature, we're free to choose differently!
