It is economically sound to have formed a family by the age of 30.
The state benefits for married couples and newborns can be easily deemed universal, as they can be found anywhere in the civilised world.
The global economy, too, is built to satisfy the need of households inhabited by three people or more. Family packs.
Having a well-launched career is the cementification of a good social standing, providing the steady income such nuclei need.
I arrive at this age a social loner, my heart almost pulverised. I’m at the attempt number five, six, or seven of building a life that can stand, so I can rock it the way I want it to. But what I want is too much, my ambitions too large. To fit everything I am, a 4 bedroom house wouldn’t be enough, the income of a full time job won’t cover the research, and finally, the time of a day won’t be enough. Only a calculated overflow could be a feasible life for who I ended up to be.
Living by addition,
all I have to see because I want understanding and control.
I have still some heart left, so please come in,
there’s some fragments you should step on, before they grow too large.
I’m a man, but I don’t really know how,
while I watch the manual burn completely,
we took out what was toxic
and while we rethink the roles
I really do not know what to do with myself.
I’m a straight white european male,
the world’s my fuckin playground
but luckily we stopped the game to try and make it better.
Freedom is power is money is a job it’s your age it’s inside it sits out there
And I don’t know who to give it to
because I want it all
all the songs I want to listen so I can quit your Taylor Swifts on Radio Capital
all the books that tell me places I have friends in
all those games that make me be someone else so I can find myself
and be an actor and a writer and a dancer and play football
and make politics and anarchy and get out there, organise, explain the difference, make it
give all I can give so I can get to be. Get to be that guys who’s paid to be himself and noone else.
CLose the jails, find the way.
Set the world allright so I can leave for Mars.
And find you all on the way there, cause I feel free when I can do what I want
but I feel good only if everybody’s freeer than me.
