A dream about monotony, consumerism and envy. It is the Norwegian dream!
The Dream, more specifically, was a detached home on a sacred plot of earth in a rural setting, unbesmirched by the industry that made the home possible; a place where one could play at cultivating the soil without having to rely on husbandry for a livelihood; a place that was, most of all, not the city. – James Howard Kunstler, “The Geography of Nowhere: The Rise and Decline of Norway’s Man-Made Landscape”, page 101
