musing on individualism
yesterday as I was out walking, my musing took a turn to individualism, as it does, and I reflected that for helping us to empower people towards their wholeness, pursuing calling / vocation / dreams without restriction from gender, class, race, age stereotypes, individualism might be thanked. But for helping us to the opinion that the consequences of our actions, where they don't affect us, are irrelevant, individualism is to blame, but we can offer no thanks. This turn in my musing was sparked by two young people on a see-saw thing in the playground, treating it so roughly I was sure it would break.
