Yes, this blog has begun to atrophy. I am moving further into a selfish phase where I don't judge myself against some abstract external standard. Since I don't judge myself against that standard, I don't tend to judge others against it. And since the standard is no longer applying to anyone, arguing about it seems a bit trivial. Perhaps this would seem to be the antithesis to communitarian ideals. I don't live under those ideals. I live in the world as it is. Ideals are for ideologues and the well off, and I am neither, although that likely will be changing.
