The evils of socialised medicine
Walked into my local GUM (sexual health) clinic today. I got...
- my monthly screening
- 3 months of PReP
- HPV vaccine
Total cost: £0, took about 2h. I get my results via SMS in 6 hours.

Imo, one of the most damning aspects of capitalism is that it encourages people to have consumptive hobbies over creative ones.
It actively seeks to bar people from doing things like cooking, or writing, or making pottery, or anything else of that nature. Activities in which you are making something
Things like that are made either too expensive (in terms of money, or time, or both) or framed as something not worth wasting time on, because you can't support yourself doing art/writing/etc
