Many cultures have multigenerations living in one or two houses and think nothing of it.

it's actually smart financially. i recently saw an article where they were poo pooing this guy who was living with his parents and using his money for investment properties.

in USA we're told to move out as soon as you can, buy a house etc, etc.

I suppose it's because this way more debt is generated with the house and buying of stuff for your home or apartment

which in turn keeps you now busy working endlessly to keep up with paying it off. then there's no time for politics or whatever else. and the politicians can push policies all under our nose as we slave away.
