Question for non US people

Did you know we give all adults a number that determines what cars you can buy, where you can live and at many companies if you can be hired. This number was secret until we sued for the right to see it. In response companies made a secret second number they dont have to share that they can use for the same things.

The things that make the number bad include not having credit cards, not taking loans. To have a good number you have to have and use credit but not more than about 25% of the credit you have.

Most Americans think this is normal.

#gigEconomy is another stepping stone for oligarchs... back towards full feudalism. But DO NOT CALL IT "SLAVERY"!! Our "MASTERS" tell us it's a dirty word that MUST be eradicated.

Greetings @FreeTube ,
Thank you for adding localization support in FreeTube's newest update. And well, thank you for FreeTube in general; It's an awesome app! And it's amazing that it's still going strong, even now that Invidious is mostly abandoned.
I've just completed the Slovenian translation. Might need some proofreading, but at least in theory it's finished. I hope it can be included with the next update. :)
Take care!
