"40-something, shattered and thirsty? Welcome to your No Life Crisis"

The future eventually arrives.

The No Life Crisis is typically suffered by parents who left having kids until late in life – and these days, with more mums in their 40s than teens, this is only set to grow.

A former magazine editor who used to burn the candle so far at both ends there was nothing left, I, like millions of others, waited until my late 30s before beginning parenthood. Now, I have a feeling I’m more of a domestic servant and wage-earning vehicle than a human being with time for actual interests of my own.

"How to Help Millennials Learn the Truth About Socialism"

Fine idea.

But we have to share our stories no matter how dreadful we feel because a good personal story makes a complex concept such as socialism easy to understand; it sparks people's emotions and keeps them engaged; it inspires empathy and action. Maya Angelou once said, “People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

So if you are a survivor of socialism, whether from the former Soviet Union, China, Cuba or Venezuela, speak up and share your stories.
