To be free

writes J.D.Garvey,

‘is not to be unaffected and uninfluenced by others; it is rather to choose among influences . . . [You have] no choice as to whether [you] will form part of a community in internal as well as external acts; there is no alternative. [Your] only choice is whether [you] will do so consciously and selectively, or without awareness.’
