Lawyers understand that this country is corrupt. So do medics. It’s time other professions did as well.

I can accuse the government of being corrupt without fear now, because the evidence supports my case. And that’s profoundly worrying.

Yes and tipping in the US plays a similar role. It's built into the system.
