"The chief principle I invoke in these essays is democracy, in the most  radical sense of that word: a commitment to individual freedom and  egalitarian self-government in every area of social, economic, and  cultural life. Democracy, as I envision it, assumes that the purpose of  community is to foster individual happiness and self-development; that  the meaning of life lies in our capacity to experience and enjoy it  fully; that freedom and eros are fundamentally intertwined; and that a  genuine sense of responsibility to other human beings flows from the  desire for connection, not subordination to family, Caesar, or God."
