I was born and raised in Wilkinsburg, PA, with my family’s roots going back to the 1800s. I have lived there for most of my life. I grew up in the middle of a lot of different types of homes, and my childhood was spent in a variety of different places.
One thing that I noticed over and over again as a kid was how close these old homes were to each other.
The problem is that for so long we’ve always been a nation of detached, isolated, anonymous, homogenous, homogenous communities. That means we have a lot of very similar houses. Sure, there are some differences, but when I say that I mean the differences that don’t translate into similar houses. The biggest difference is the fact that houses have become so homogenous over the years that we almost forget they’re separate people with their own lives.
So I say that because when it comes to the “average American home” the average person is not an individual. They are a collection of people who live together. Their individuality is what makes the whole of a home interesting. The average American home is a collection of houses. You can be a suburbanite, a hillbilly, a hippie, a redneck, or a “typical American” within the confines of a single American city.
I know this, because I too have lived in an average American home. It’s a collection of houses. They are individual people, so I can go into my house and I can have a conversation with my neighbor or other neighbor. We get our own little communities. We all know each other, and we don’t live in a community of people who live in the same house.
The problem is that we are all the same kind of people. We are all Americans, and we all have the same needs, wants, and desires. We all have things we want to do, things we want to buy, and things we dont want to buy. We all have our “needs”, and to make sure that each of us has “needs” we might want to meet, we might try to meet those needs.
The problem is that most of our needs are met by money, and we can always talk to someone who can help us. The only problem is when money isnt enough. All the really needy people in the world arent the ones that are in need of money. So when it comes to meeting our needs, we might just have to do it ourselves. But to do that, we might have to use something called “self-help.
Self-help just means we talk to someone who can help us solve our problems. It doesn’t just mean, “I need this” or “I need that.” A problem might be that we cant solve our own problems, so we need someone else to help us.
In his last moments, the self-help guy just goes to work on us. We dont know what he is talking about. But we can assume that he is talking about self-help, since he is the most self-helpful person on the planet. He’s not in the least bit interested in our problems. He is after all, the self-help guy. He is the one that the self-help guy. So basically, he is a pretty selfish guy.
