Addiction, Autonomy and Anonymity privacy/Scrapbook

anonymity

notes from Paula Marie Helm’s talk on “On the Relationship between Addiction, Autonomy and Anonymity”.

Anonymity can help to regain formal autonomy.

1 – works as a crutch to overcome fear
2 – serves as a protection for the collective, it safeguards common values so they will not be corrupted by ego-driven individuals
3 – a performative practice that shapes personalities. anon is an educational and therapeutic instrument, as it teaches people to distance themselves form vain, pride and ego-centrism, and helps them to be more social and less selfish.
