gabor: what becomes suppressed is our authenticity


from Erich Fromm‘s the sane society:


if such a goal is not attained by the majority of members of any give society, we deal w the phenom of socially patterned defect.. the individual shares it w many others; he is not aware of it as a defect, and his security is not threatened by the experience of being different, of being an outcast, as it were..

pluralistic ignorance et al

what he may have lost in richness and in a genuine feeling of happiness, is made up by the security of fitting in with the rest of mankind – as he knows them..

For fear you will be alone
