The Hot New Millennial Housing Trend Is a Repeat of the Middle Ages
Communal living is hardly a departure from tradition—it's a return to how humans have been making their homes for thousands of years.
For most of human history, people were hunter-gatherers. They lived in large camps, depending on one another for food, childcare, and everything else—all without walls, doors, or picket fences. In comparison, the number of people living in most households in today’s developed countries is quite small. According to the Census Bureau, fewer than three people lived in the average American household in 2010. The members of most American households can be counted on one hand, or even, increasingly, one finger: Single-person households only made up about 13 percent of all American households in 1960. Now, that figure is about 28 percent.

The Telegraph: Germany 'interfering in General Election in attempt to undermine Theresa May'
Germany has been accused by allies of Theresa May of trying to influence the General Election by undermining the Prime Minister over Brexit talks.
Allies of Mrs May believe Germany, in tandem with the EU, is embarking on a new “project fear” by repeatedly briefing against her.
Senior officials in the German government and in Brussels have openly mocked Mrs May or leaked sensitive information about private meetings in what is being seen as an attempt to undermine the Prime Minister.
Last week Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, also suggested Britain had “illusions” over what it could hope to achieve from Brexit.
Weakening Mrs May’s mandate with the electorate would tilt the balance in favour of the EU negotiators, and Conservative sources have suggested she is the victim of a co-ordinated plot ahead of next month’s election.
What is the biggest threat to the stability of the global economy right now? Britain leaving the EU? Donald Trump’s taste for bone-headed protectionism? The Federal Reserve raising interest rates too quickly, a collapse in China, or the sudden break-up of the eurozone?
You could make a case for all of them, and they are all worrying to different degrees.
But in fact, it is something that gets only a fraction of the attention it deserves: Germany’s trade surplus. Hitting record highs with every month that passes, it now amounts to a massive 9pc of GDP. In effect, Germany has become an economic rogue state, hollowing out the industry of its neighbours, creating vast flows of footloose capital and undermining the stability of the financial system. It is time the rest of the world stood up to it and demanded the Germans bring it under control.

Матушка наша Мєркєль, свєточ нємєцкой дємократії, как нєдавно сообщалі, на трєтій срок ідьот. Вангую, что єшьо на похоронах Путлєра погуляєт:
Поддєржка же срєді насєлєнія только растьот дня ото дня. От ліца нємєцкой молодьожі давєча вьіступіл 95-лєтній Гюнтер-Хельге Штрікштрак (Штрікштрак, Карл!), одін із основатєлєй ХДС, вьіразів свойо авторітєтноє мнєніє, что Мєркєль - дадєна нам Боженькой (МП) акі подарок. Так что возрадуємся, братіє, і укрєпімся в вєрє (МП).
