individual-i

Interesting little idea (and a clever icon), but it dovetails into some other, more problematic ideas. For one thing, although individual rights be under threat in some spaces, the culture of individuality is stronger than ever. Alienation from one's community(ies) and a general sense disaffection are common symptoms of an individualistic culture.

I'm not trying to be contrary for the sake of it and I like what this little icon is saying, overall. I'm just concerned that this kind of language is often used--in other spaces--to divide us, highlight superficial differences and undermine the needs of the community.
