Hilde: I tend not to lock the door when I go out. And I have all that fresh air, a beautiful view, and I come from a working-class background where poverty (yes, I think I can use that word) would have kept me from studying if I lived in the United States. My parents have made full use of the health-system and well-fare system, and I have used it enough that I don't resent paying taxes. Do I live in heaven? Compared to the life I, with my social and economic background, would have lived in many other countries, I think so.
