97. I don't see any problems so they must not exist
I haven't been screwed by my employers so all those millions who have must be lying.

I haven't personally seen environmental degradation so it must not really be happening.

I have never had a conflict between my conscience and my pay check so it can't' possibly happen.

I haven't had my employer use my job to control me so again, those that have had this happen must be lying.

I haven't noticed that my productivity far exceeds what i get back, so the two things must be always be equal for everyone.

And so I am getting sick and tired of people not accepting my one anecdotal example as the norm instead of testimony from millions of people, centuries of history and what can be plainly seen if one bothers to look.

Since I don't see literal chains, there must not be anything holding me down.

:sarcasm: in case anyone couldn't figure it out.
