“You can’t separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom.” — Malcolm X
The longer I live this hermit’s life, the less talking I feel moved to do… yet the more there is to say. That’s a main reason why I’m starting this blog.
I’m still setting up the blog’s design and tweaking various things, and it’ll take a few days before I’m ready to launch it all properly.
But I’ll say this: he probably had no such intention, but Malcolm X was speaking for plenty of Hermits when he made that statement. I don’t think it’s commonly known, but — based on what I’ve read and the solitary folks I’ve known — we Hermits often seem to carry a real independent, anti-authoritarian streak in us.
Actually, I suspect that plenty of non-Hermits bear the same trait. And that’s likely why depression is so rampant in the world today.
Topics like these will be a major theme of this blog. Welcome to a peaceful yet inwardly wild adventure.
