This year has been….different. So I figured in honor of this year that was anything but normal, I’d play a little dystopia…
Cue the twilight zone music….
Imagine if you will…
Two adult household. Man/woman- woman/woman-man/man-
Only one of the adults is allowed to work. One adult can’t have a job that pays. The “non-working” person would be expected to volunteer in the community.
One adult in the household would be required to work- at any time the adults in the household would be allowed to switch positions- whereas the person working outside the home would be the new stay at home.
In cases of single family households, that person would be allowed to work, and childcare would be provided by “non working” neighbors (it takes a village). The expectation would be that single would not remain single for long. Residences with one adult are taxed at twice the rate of doubles.
Young adults between the ages of 18 and 24 would be expected to work part time as an apprentice (half salary) and would be required to live in dormitory type residences. The expectation would be that they partner up by the time they are 25.
25 is the new age of majority.
Retirement would be at age 75.
No one is allowed to have more than one child.
In this dystopian universe, how do you think life plays out?
