Gonna say it’s the realization that there’s no effing social safety net forcing you to work die has more to do with it

This is absolutely untrue. SSI exists. Food stamps exists. Public housing exists. Medicaid exists. Unemployment exists. And that's just the government. There are many charities that exist, food banks, Habitat for Humanity, Salvation Army, even old fashion soup kitchens. St. Judes is a Children's Hospital where parents pay 0, heck there are whole websites dedicated to helping others like GoFundMe and GiveSendGo.

You may want there to be *more* social safety nets but to say that there are none is complete hyperbole at best and an outright lie at worst.
