Shouting “I”

We may say broadly that free thought is the best of all the safeguard against freedom

Slavoj Žižek

Those who shout “I” the loudest have little “I.” The cult of hyper-individualism forgets its reliance on various structures. Everything is for me, a “me,” which would not exist without others. Knowing I become through human and non-human others helps me remember freedom is a gift—one which is given to me and one which I should share.
