What I ought and what I aught

Note: This article quickly chalks down the radical and rational premises of individualism and individuation. The purpose is to awaken the statists.

“All rational action is in the first place individual action. Only the individual thinks. Only the individual reasons. Only the individual acts.” – Ludwig von Mises

I consider myself as an “Individual being” & not “Human being”, because I’m uninterested to violate your discretion; as long as you don’t harm my private property or hurt my body, which many human beings do daily with you with the government and mass society. I’m also uncurious to conspicuously rob your entitlements. Interventionism is costly & I cannot afford to devalue myself by interfering in your actions.

You are free to take a nude walk on the street, and it’s “none of my business” to tell you: ‘what you should do or not’. I’m not inhumane to cartelise or monopolise any individual’s liberty or life, & this holistically, philosophically speaking, makes me more humane. This is ME, & I love myself very much. Your approval of my narcissism is not needed.

May these quotes bless you:

“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.”  ― Bernard M. Baruch

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”  ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.” ― Mark Twain

“The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.”  ― Jim Morrison
