Autotelic - "...someone or something that has a purpose in, and not apart from, itself. ... Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi describes people who are internally driven, and who as such may exhibit a sense of purpose and curiosity, as autotelic. This is different from being externally driven, in which case things such as comfort, money, power, or fame are the motivating force."
John 13:34 "A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another."
Are there any actual Christians left? I know there are those who hold the banner of Christianity as they spread hatred and fear, but are there any of them that actual follow Jesus' command?
I believe there are. And I believe they need to be LOUDER.
Western culture took the notion of "individuality" and mutated it into deeply-entrenched selfishness. The United States in particular has taken this to its extreme, creating a system that teaches, encourages, and rewards selfishness above every other ideal. The U.S. loudly touts pseudo-Christian ideals, using this distractive propaganda to deflect from its worship of selfishness.

Flâneur. I am in a state of transition. Age, location, and food preferences. I don't hate ketchup anymore. I want more red meat. J'aime le Cantal.
