quote from Rachel

From this thread. I said:

we are *meant* to be plugged in to a body/community, with the relative loss of personal freedom/autonomy that implies.

and Rachel responsed:
I completely agree, Benjamin. And we live a a country with both a personal gratification oriented consumer culture and a radically individualized “personal Savior” version of Christianity. This combination powerfully reinforces a sense of absolute autonomy and entitlement. That viewpoint was summed up well in the Ronald Reagan quote you recently posted.

Very pithy. Thankyou Rachel.
