the dream of collective well-being

Posted: July 11th, 2020 | No Comments »

from my sister, “ask a sane person: jia tolentino on practicing the discipline of hope”:

I think the American obsession with symbolic freedom has to be traded for a desire for actual freedom: the freedom to get sick without knowing it could bankrupt you, the freedom for your peers to live life without fearing they’ll be killed by police. The dream of collective well-being has to outweigh, day-to-day, the dream of individual success.
