• honesty. i acknowledge the need to lie in order to protect oneself in certain situations. but lying to the people who matter, especially about one's true feelings and intentions, never leads to anything good. relationships based on honesty are the only worthwhile ones.
  • authenticity. one should do the things that make sense to them, not chase abstract notions of success. find the aliveness. meaning is immanent.
  • vulnerability. the only currency in this bankrupt world is what we share with each other when we are uncool.
  • tolerance. let people groove and then blow up. everyone is different. we are here to help each other get through this thing, whatever it is.
  • equality. equal access. no one is better. collective advancement is the only real advancement.
