Every era and time period has it’s own set of rules and marks that set it apart from others. Also, every age has it’s own rules that you need to understand in order to live in it. Some people follow those rules and some break it, but all need to know them. Understanding the society and culture of your time is one of the fundamental facts you need to learn in order to live a better and more fulfilled life.

In the 21st century, it is both easier and harder than ever to establish that elusive definition. What is normal and how to best use the potential and chances of the time you are living in?
