America is the only place in the world where it is legally permitted to criticize anyone and everyone.

See, for example: The creepy tyranny of Canada's hate speech laws

That reminds me of a joke from the Bush era.

American: "My country is free because we can stand in the middle of DC and call our leader an idiot".
Iraqi: "So what. I can stand in the middle of Baghdad and call your leader an idiot".

The alternative is to "trust" that the coworker standing behind you will catch when you fall backwards. At some places I worked at, stepping off a 12-story building is easier.

The problem is, if you're falling backwards off a 12 story building, the guy behind you is 12 stories down! I'm as trusting as the next guy, but that's taking it a little too far.
