"Ask not what the power structure can do for your survival,
ask what you can do for the survival of the power structure"

The hope is that, at that level of required sacrifice,
the difficult effort towards real autonomy, instead of sham autonomy,
will no longer be felt as utopian.

But to understand what real autonomy means,
in order to know not only what we don't want,
but what is a viable alternative,
we need to work on something like
 'Ecological Design' as Eric Kluitenberg proposed.
