Freedom: being able to make decisions that primarily affect oneself. Power: being able to make decisions that primarily affect others.

@tealturtle at the #OMN it's about balancing power to maximize freedom recognising that we flourish as social/commentary cretureas rather than isolated #stupidindividualism looking for more people who share this work flow for progressive outcomes.

@witchescauldron I don't think there's inherently a conflict between that and individualism. Rationally self-interested people will compromise and cooperate instead of needlessly fighting for advantage over each other. That's the principle of mutual aid.

@tealturtle yes..what's the path to the outcome :)

#stupidindividualism is a definition of what neo-liberalism creates inside us - we have a video series on this subject on that's well worth watching.
