Whether we want to admit it or not, we become more generic while technology and progress expands to every single aspect of our lives. We are born in a society that programs us from the start. Isn’t it funny that kids are usually told they can become anyone they want, but as they grow older their dreams are often shattered by reality. You want to be a writer? How will you support yourself? You want to live in a cabin far from civilization? It’s just an escape from the world. Be reasonable, get real, go to college, make good money, start a family, take a loan, buy stuff you’re told is essential to survive.
Those graphics pretty much say it all.
