I do not want to be free. I want to be dependent on the love of others. I want a community that cares for itself, and builds and maintain infrastructure for itself and those around it. I want to chain myself to a constructed society based on mutualism and empathy and scream, no, you cannot take this from us. We are not lonely creatures in the wilderness. We are a stronger force bonded together.


@Aradia I’m big on mutual aid and empathy but I have a visceral distrust of making survival dependent on love and community. Which is only to say, I think, that utopia needs to have room for both of us.
