Worthless? This Activist Voices What’s ‘Really’ Wrong With Britain’s System

This activist has had enough of Britain’s ‘system' deeming what its citizens ‘should’ and ‘should not’ do to be considered worthy.

From a young age, most people are indoctrinated to believe that in order to be a worthy contribution to the world, they must attain perfect grades in school, participate in a number of extra-curricular activities, enroll and graduate from a prestigious college, intern and ‘build their CV’ for a number of years, marry (a member of the opposite sex) and have 2.5 kids, then eventually pass away – fulfilled from living a cookie-cutter life and fitting into the mold society has deemed ‘acceptable’.

But activist Agnes Török has had enough of Britain’s ‘system’ deeming what its citizens ‘should’ and ‘should not’ do to be considered valuable contributions to the world.

In a poem inspired by the news of a new Conservative budget, Török eloquently shares her thoughts based on experiences had while living in Britain under austerity as a young, queer, unemployed, female immigrant student.
