In order for our society to function, we all live according to something called “The Social Contract.” This is an unspoken agreement we all enter into, whereby we give up some of our personal freedom in exchange for overall harmony in our community. Sure, I would love to let my goats roam free and eat whatever they want, but if they wandered into your field and ate your crops, you might shoot me. And so, I built a fence. That’s the Social Contract, and it’s how we got here today.
But when it comes to shared living spaces, the Social Contract breaks down.
While we are willing to put aside our own desires for the wellbeing of society as a whole, but for some reason, when it comes to where we sleep, we treat it like our personal domain. Even if we’re sharing it with someone else. I AM THE KING OF THIS APARTMENT AND I WILL NOW DIRTY ALL THE ROYAL DISHES WITHOUT EVER CLEANING THEM! LONG LIVE ME!
