Society’s neck hold on security has consequentially augmented feelings of apathy, alienation and passivity. Embracing the idea that human beings are self-actualizing and agenic, the work aims to forge community and mobilize new ways of resistance. Individuals are invited to self-disclose and engage in reflexivity and emphatic exchange of experiential learnings. This work exposes the repercussions of indirect self-censorship, and advocates the autonomy and freedom of speech imperative to human revolution and evolution.
