How do Europeans and brits work their whole life for 35k a year? In the hopes to maybe one day make 40k?

How the fuck is this a good salary? How do they not revolt? Do they not have rich people to show what they're all missing?

Because the cost of living is way lower and a fuckload of free social/health benefits just for being alive lmao.
I got braces entirely for free. I go to my dentist to check and clean my teeth every 3-4 months for free. I broke my arm downhill mountainbiking and I got it fixed for free. Basically can go live life without any fear of risking/failure since a whatever injury won't take a penny out of my pocket.

Uni is also almost entirely free as opposed to the huge student loans in the US. Public transport during high school and uni as well free, and subsidized laughably cheap quality cooked meals every single day. Went to uni and not only was in zero debt but I also part time worked so I was actually in nothing but profit after uni. Absolutely nothing to pay off, bought me a car and continued on working after uni I repeat with ZERO debt of any kind ever. And I don't even use my car that much except for weekend trips since almost everything I need is a mere walk away from me, while in the US you're effectively dead without a car.
Basically close to no things to worry about in day to day basis since I was a kid and my parents are lower middle class working people.

How am I poor? How do I have nothing? Again I have zero debt, my own car, an apartment, full fridge of actual non processed non high fructose corn syrup food everyday, the only thing I need is a wife and kids at this point really. Would move to a house obviously when I get a family.

And once I have a son he will be able to go out playing with the boys not in fear that he will bankrupt the entire family if he breaks an arm or having to wait for dad to drive him since he can't go anywhere without a car. Basically a free man. Life is good.

Social programs, which, on one hand allow everyone to exist comfortably, even if they have nothing, on the other hand prevent any social mobility, by destroying any disposable income successful people may have, resulting in most big business being owned by some old families, as opposed to the us where the richest people change every decade or two, and all became rich within their own lifetime.

Additionally, they keep people busy. free un-intensive, stretched out college, so that young people spend their active years not doing anything active or rebelling, and certainly not complaining about social programs.

Together, those factors combine to a society where people have an incentive structure built to get them to do nothing. It doesn't happen overnight, but gradually, Europe is actively in decline by every social or economic metric, and social programs make sure people don't really notice.

The average italian lost 90k in net worth over the last few decades, but if the bus, healthcare etc is free, and the aggressive youth is high in free college pods, no one will realise or complain. Much like frogs don't realise they're getting boiled if the heat is turned up slowly

Shit is only "free" in europe because everything is forcibly taxed to the max. Only breeds mediocrity and working poor, yuropoors are not a meme. Public health care is an absolute joke too you're forced to pay for it but if you want actual good health care (because public is garbage and overloaded on people going to the doctor for basic shit) you'll have to go and pay a second time out of pocket. People not getting put into debt over medical bills is literally the only thing europe has over america in that regard.

Don't forget that they have to pay for their "free" healthcare every month no matter what even if they have no money. There was a germoid here yesterday crying about his medical debt, he's been unemployed for a year but the government still bills you for insurance you can't pay for

The health coverage thing is overblown here. If you're poor you're on Medicaid/ACA. If you're old it's Medicare. Anyone working any normal job has cheap health insurance. There are few falling through the cracks there and of those even fewer who actually hit a debilitating medical bill. And then those people tend to just say they won't pay... lol.

It's two sides of the same coin trying to keep everyone ignorant.

>>53430717
Germany's health care laws are pretty weird (some might say by design), it's absolutely possible to get fucked by them, but it mostly happens to people starting out with self employment because by law you are forced to pay a percentage of your income for it, so that can put you in bad situations if ur income fluctuated or they deem you didn't report things correctly. Government paying for health care usually only happens in most of europe if you sign up and get approved for gibs (which means doing whatever they tell you in regards to jobs). Places like japan are the ones with no strings attached public health care.

I don't get it either OP. What are people from Europe even planning on doing if they "make it"? Finally get their goat proper healthcare? Sit neck deep in a bog? Dig a pit and fill it with moss? Melt down used whippet cannisters and turn them into plows so they can rebuild their society? (after they're done finding all those old world war mine fields of course). Most can't even read this post I bet, probably couldn't afford their internet license.

I don't get why americans still believe the public health care is bad meme. All the studies show that in western/northern europe healthcare is as good or better than in USA.

But yeah OP basically we agree to wage with high taxes until retirement (either old age or because of sickness) and in exchange the government takes care of us our whole lives. Exchanging work for total safety. But we do have more holidays.

Actual true BASIC public health care isn't a bad thing to have at all, an advanced society should strive for it, but imo it should mostly be for actually critical health situations really, else it like all things gets misused by people going to the doc (who is btw now actively incentivized by the governemnt who pays no questions asked to schedule a fuckton of appointments with his patients too, instead of getting things done fast and well) many times over nothing because well "it's free" and "I might have something better make sure".

Corruption is actually pretty low in western/northern europe. Your dream capitalist system can also get corrupt. And as i said, in real world for majority of people it's better if the public sector makes those decicions. That's why the countries with highest living standards in the world that are not some bullshit city states are in europe. Sorry your fantasy doesn't work in reality.
>>
>>53431324
I'm actually just graduating as a doctor and critical health situations rarely happen suddenly. They are results of many smaller changes in health. Yeah there will always be lazy scumbags who abuse the system, it's not perfect, but it's still better than private health care that has it's own loopholes.

Corruption is never low. Corruption is built into any large organization. The state in particular enjoys lots of money, from lots of people, with little oversight, little accountability and falsifiability. They have no competitors to keep them honest, like a free market economy. This makes them uniquely dangerous.

You aren't aware of all of the corruption going on there anon. Not only do they take their cut from your contribution, they make sure their "business associates" get contracts for made up work, they stifle others, they spend ever last dollar and insist on more even when they could have gone under budget. There's a reason why "budget cuts" never happen in government, only eternal, excessive, corrupt growth at cost of your own personal life growth.

The state performs best a lightweight referee of the society and economy, not its micromanager. At that point it just becomes the nation's largest gang. You aren't going to be made aware of it because the entities asked to "make you aware of it" are in the exact same bed sooooo... tough shit.

Yeah this is what the corporate overlords tell people in burgerland but if it was actually true then european states would have become horrible places to live in a long time ago already. When in reality they have the highest living standards in the world. So clearly the state can clear itself of some of the corruption despite not having competitors other than other countries. The free market cleans itself theory is bullshit, monopolies that stiffle competition happen all the time in free markets.

This is so rich dude. Your state + state affiliated/sponsored media put out a Corruption Power Rankings and told you they're #1?

Monopolies happen when the state and a megacompany intersect. They use regulatory walls to stifle competition, you can't do anything otherwise. Get your shit straight. Our largest corporations here are state buddies and even put out ads asking for more regulation, no joke. Facebook ran a long ad campaign asking for more internet regulation a year or so ago.

I have never, ever uttered the words "truly free market." You have now invented a strawman in order to continue an argument with me.

In my opinion in modern world the wellfare model of northern europe is the best as proven by the living quality. Thanks to all the modern technology around us we simply don't need the risk that small government creates for it's citizens. We have the tech to maintain a bigger, safer government which creates less true pain for it's citizens. Not "blah i have to go to work again today pain" but "i lost fucking everything and nobody will help me" pain.

The "welfare model" is literally just chattel slavery. It produces nothing. It's a regressive feedback loop. You encourage progressively more and more people to jump on the fund and less and less workers and work. In a democracy, it's especially poisonous, as you can quite literally BUY VOTES with other people's money. This is what has been transpiring for decades, and this is why unemployment/welfare rates climb by the year.

The original intention was a "safety net", not a plantation of 50% of the population doing nothing, living mediocre meaningless non productive lives under the umbrella of a rich, corrupt megabureaucracy that flays and robs the rest.

The US has plenty of this, but Europe has it worse. The past 30 years have been a truly lost era for economic growth in Europe. Your nations continue to stagnate, lag, and get surpassed even by some Asian stars. You continue to squeeze the same corporate dinosaurs for more and more while failing to innovate and build the new business giants, like we have in tech. It's going to get a lot more tangibly backwards as time goes on.

It's not rare at all for people to work from home or make more than $80k/year here. In fact if most people weren't so consoomeristic this would be reality.

And it could be for you too if you could manage to break the conditioning! But it won't happen. As I said, the unholy marriage of welfare states + democracy is extremely toxic for a nation's prospects. You have a feedback loop of progressively more people voting for other people's money. The most loyal group of voters in any country: welfare queens. Of course they'll always vote for the free bags of cash. An absurd perversion of democratic purity.

Ok europoor here let me give my 2 cents.

America is better for high performers and people who like independence. However its politically much more divided than here in Europoorland. Im quite bearish on Europe thats why im actually leaving. Fuck high taxes and im still young. Europe is only good if you already made it or you are a low performer. However im still grateful to be born here and not some corrupt dystopia like India/China, Eastern Europe or South America. I mean it always depends, there is no perfect country.

Thanks for reading my blog post.

There are not hopes of freedom and self-reliance in Europe so we don’t care that much about how much we earn, as long as we can live and pay for a vacation once in a while. Meanwhile in the US there are real opportunities to make it, to become financially free, and there are a lot more things that you can do (with money) to have fun; so of course an American would be miserable if they earned a shit salary.
In Europe you need all kinds of permits, licenses, etc... constantly surveiled by cops and treated like a child.

It's a flat % of your salary before tax anon, nothing more and if you provide that you get access to socialized health care.
It can be anywhere around 10-15% in Europe.
In UK poor people I think only pay 2.4% for their public health system.

You in US pay out of pocket but it can be a better deal for petty things, say you're a high income person, after tax you can expend 100k, you get appendicitis you pay once 20-25k so 2-2.5%, you could get cancer and get in debt instead or less serious treatments that require purchase of medication and spend 40% of your income for years... consider that even insulin is like 100x more expensive in US.

Elon musk, Mark Zuccerberg, Bill Gates, Steve jobs all became rich in their lifetime. In Europe virtually all are from old rich families

The rich families like the Walton's change slower, and that's a problem, but at least there's some real social mobility from upper middle class to richest man on earth within your lifetime, which simply is not a thing in Europe these days

I'm an Eastern European lawyer and I barely make 20k USD/year, I'm still very young and don't even have a full title yet

it's quite puzzling to me how americans earn so much (or atleast scream so much here about this)
I guess a part of this "lost money" for me was in education, which I got completely free and subsidized (free law school + programs which basically pay your whole stay in another EU country for +1year)

I wish I could compare this life to one living in america, it definitely would be even more demanding

From my perspective the free public healthcare is a complete bullshit. It's basically a ponzi scheme, a hole with no end to which every person has to pay in my country (pooland). The quality of it is low and you have to wait literally 5 years to get a visit at your doctor. The same goes with social security - a hole with no end, when you retire you are basically left alone anyway because the pension is a dogshit amount.

I've actually thought about moving to the US but my knowledge is in continental and EU law, are there any fellow lawyers who maybe gave it a try? Been doing Delaware corporations recently. I wish someone else shared a story.

It's true. They'll swear up and down that the monarchy has no power, but every act of Parliament must be given royal assent to be valid. All legal power is derived from the crown, it's in their Constitutions.

It's the only life they know, and they'd be uncomfortable with it gone.

He's a retard but there are still many Europen monarchies, especially among the microstates.

>>
>>53434305

>He's completely correct, but still retarded.

Care to explain your logic? Hell, if anything the list only bolsters the argument in favor of having a monarch. That list contains almost all the "good" countries. (Where you can actually make 35k like the OP was asking about). The ones that don't have kings are on average far worse off.

Even if the crown doesn't exercise its power, it doesn't mean it can't, and it doesn't mean those citizens aren't actually subjects.

They like being subjected. They work, earn what they're allowed and are content with it. Anyone who doesn't feel this way leaves.

>>53430368
And this really is the main reason. Middle class euros making 35-40k aren't living like an American on that salary. Euros living in cities often don't even have to own cars, so that already cuts off an average of $500 a month on transport costs. They don't have to pay insurance premiums, and they can often go to free or highly subsidized colleges for a full bachelor's degree. Their expenses are more predictable, so they don't have to incur sudden huge debts that can spiral. Americans have random issues with their health or their car, and suddenly they're down hundreds or potentially over a thousand dollars. For Euros a lot of that instability is just not there. Even on housing side, a lot of Euro cities have statutes managing how your rent can be increased so you don't spontaneously have your cost of living shoot up. Europe still has its issues, look at the protests over gas and heating costs, but they're often wondering why Americans tolerate how expensive it can be to live here. And ultimately it makes American competitiveness suffer. A country like Germany can still manage a lot of manufacturing industry even with its unions and state programs because the state programs actually make the cost of living cheaper. Middle class Americans demand relatively large salaries because they feel like they need them to handle all the random expenses. So America's economy has this big rent seeking aspect, a bunch of industries that make their scratch by preying on the precarity of the middle class. It's expensive and unnecessary, other countries just clamp down on it to stay competitive. America has managed to eek by because of its post-war dominance, but that has been increasingly challenged and now America is facing economic competition again, so it's large Middle class income is stagnating while all those parasitic industries are eating it alive.

Swiss reporting in

Our salaries are higher than yours. Our life expectancy is a decade higher. People are not obese. There is societal trust. Americans receive high salaries then get taxed in even more brazen and disgusting ways than any European ever could but it's under the guise of "business" to pay $5000/year for health insurance so you love it because it raises the GDP. The average net worth in Spain and France is higher in the US despite the salaries being $20k/year. It's an illusion.

Swiss salaries are literally twice as high as the European average, with taxes being twice as low.
Switzerland has the same economic model as the USA (non centralised, consumer based economy with low taxes and competition between the different cantons/states), and it has way fewer niggers so it performs unsurprisingly well.

WW2 devastated my and many others families wealth. It's a literal reset of your heritage to have your house bombed to shit and/or looted and then looted again as they even destroy your furniture for firewood. All my grandparents were obviously traumatized by the war in one way or another and never rebuilt what their parents once had thus there is no real inheritance either since they donated a lot of their money to charity since they experienced real suffering and hunger and one even had to eat maggots to stay alive during the hunger winter.
Beside that, cost of living is a lot lower in European countries but it differs per country so don't treat Europe as if it's all the same, that's like pretending Rural Alabama has the same salaries and COL as San Francisco.. Many people are also placated by the good social services countries offer and seem content with what bread and circus is offered as well as material trinkets they can afford. Americans don't have it as good as they think they have it except for the lucky few that earn 6 figures and over in areas where the COL isn't too high but they are still fucked by shit social services and infrastructure and roaming packs of junkies and niggers which we don't have in most of Europe.
How much do you pay for your cellphone plan? I pay €10 per month for unlimited calls, texts and several gig's of data that I never burn through. You most likely pay 5 times that for less and shit coverage. I recently had a neuro-surgery which also meant I needed an MRI, several photos and visits to all kinds of specialists and had several treatments and medicine. I paid €385 besides my normal €135 monthly health insurance. I currently live in a rent controlled house (bought a homestead though so I'm moving) and I pay approx €700 a month for it. My car insurance is about €100 a month. My groceries are about €100 per week for two people. I made €3600 net this month.

Free healthcare helps a lot, I don't agree with it personally because it's just another way for the Jew to steal directly from the nation but it's something you don't really need to worry about financially.

Interesting analysis, but I am still surprised by the euro attitude that “America is surely in decline now”. I really can’t come up with any realistic scenario in which the EU economy overtakes the US. The only major economic advantage is a better educated population, but has this really produced anything worth mentioning? Innovation is already so stifled by the low-risk social democracy and regulations. Euro Manufacturing is losing it’s competitive advantage rapidly as QA is no longer strongly driven by education and skilled labor, but rather automation, infrastructure, supply chains, and energy costs. Speaking of energy, you lost a large, cheap source of that recently and it is going to hurt your manufacturing and cost of living. Your demographics are terrible even with immigrants, and exploiting this to save you from more economic pain will just Americanize you. The EU is extremely weak as a political body so when people talk of the 500 million pop supereconomy I can’t help but laugh. I know us Americans embody a sick culture, but don’t delude yourself that “muh culture” makes Europe superior, your industry will probably just be tourism in the future for Americans and Chinese to visit cool historical sites.

It's not any different than in america, a lot of the opinions from europeans u'll read are strongly influenced by whatever european msm feeds it's citizen and there's just a certain innate but unfounded arrogance? that's deeply ingrained in europe. The anti-american narrative has been dialed back now though since you have a dem president and it's now mostly about evil russia and debates on how many tanks and weapons to send ukraine this week, fighting the good fight and all. I think you're spot on with your take on europe going full tourism but not much else.

>All the studies show that in western/northern europe healthcare is as good or better than in USA
very easy to say when you have exponentially fewer fat, (unironic) söy-goyslopping automatons jacking up demand for medical services. Health demographics, particularly on diet (primary contributor of leading causes of death in the US), are hardly comparable. The problems with the US healthcare system (or should I say public health?) go deeper than a public/private dichotomy. You would need government mandated concentration camps to whip the fats into shape; a clamp down on all toxic additives in the food supply; redefinition of the nutritional guidelines; recalibration of food supply; dismantling of the medical industrial complex through anti-trust enforcement; and all of this, to be only marginally effective until a period of a decade at least for behavior to shift... ASSUMING public unrest, resulting from the inevitable sòy lecithin withdrawals, does not foment a bloody revolution in the name of gluttonous self destruction.

At its heart, its a meta-problem of society wide mental illness. Public health would never have gotten to this point without the complicity of the engorged masses. Nihilism personified? People just don't give enough of a fuck to not become a product of the system; to BECOME the product, by conSOOMing the product. Whatever the fuck kind of "capitalism" we have here in the states - this is the end game.

"God forbid you take away my freedom to kill myself by CONSOOMING product."
