Do we really need to work 20+ years to earn the right to call a house 'home'? Isn't there a better way to contribute to society and have a fulfilling life?
Are you saying you can't feel at home in a rented place?
I think you can, but it's a little harder when it belongs to someone else that you have to answer to. It's not even just having to answer to someone, you have to go through them for a wide variety of things because it's not *yours*, and depending on the landlord that can range from inconvenient to downright painful.
That's true - however with a good landlord I enjoy the fact that neither need to spend time nor money on repairs and maintenance, and the money I am saving vs buying a house can be invested in the stock market at the same time. That way, it is even a good deal financially.
