Imagine an AU where tons of people write frequent thinkpieces on the dangers of romanticizing the nuclear family.
That exists, but it’s usually to encourage people to live in bigger families and obey their grandfather instead of their father.
I must have underemphasized the volume of what I’m imagining, because while I believe you, I haven’t encountered one of those.
Thinking big is healthy… I’d say that you need a new ideal to replace the old… e.g. love in all its forms ought to be freely pursued without one taking preference, thus making more space for e.g. platonic partnerships and triads…
In a world where so many people were able to understand said dangers well enough to write them up, would there still be any need to write that number of thinkpieces about it?
I’m imagining it as a parallel to the number of thinkpieces about “the dangers of technology.”
