On the other hand, when we perceive autonomy as a game to be won, we allow ourselves to ruthlessly pursue victory and, where deemed necessary, to run roughshod over the rules and ideals that protect civil rights and the social fabric of our nation.
Our democracy requires that we govern ourselves in the light of its principles. Autonomy is far more than a game to be won. Our thoughtful practice of it gives rise to an honorable life and to an environment in which we, and those who depend on us, can Flourish. Thrive. Belong.
Lastly, to be sure, I enjoy your company in this endeavor to see autonomy rightly.
