“An offline social life makes it possible to gain a sense of agency to a degree that one is able to plan meaningfully and gain a sense of directionality and firm ground, the sense that one needs to act consequential because anything one does has consequences for Others. Robinson Crusoe alone on an island did not have this sense. In order to keep a sense of agency and direction he made planning and utlilitarianism itself into his cherished big Other.” – http://ift.tt/1YRFcGC
