Well what's it all about ?? I have some serious concerns as follows;
I see the so-called cult of Individualism is obviously opposed to good things such as "community" and empathy between humans
and allied to nasty things like selfcentredness & aggressive western orientalistic imperialism (grr boo hiss etc.)
yet at the same time...
i have this fierce kneejerk sense of individualism that seems somehow wired up to my own self-respect... is it becos i am an institutionalised konsumerist clone - product as i am of the dredded thatcher generation (shivers down spine)?
or is it just an illusion created by longterm exposure to brain-rotting late 20thC western media? is it that being an 'individual' is the ultimate cosy conformity ??
....maybe that's not really so very deep at all,
but could someone pls explain cos this whole ego ego ego thing does my head in...
....while i nip off & read the theism thread,
