You know, originally, when I was creating these two panels I kept going back to the scene from Monty Python's The Life of Brian, when Brian is asked to speak before a crowd of worshipers. The thick irony of the scene where he's saying "you are all individuals," and the mass of sandal-wearing peasants screams back in unison that they are all individuals stuck out in my mind as a very nice analogy for how I perceive social interaction between humans.
At which point, I'd ask myself when do we dismiss the fact that individualism is one of the greatest gifts ever bestowed to us, but I guess this goes hand in hand with the staggering amount of compromises one makes in life just to get by.
How do we get back in touch with ourselves is likely a discussion for another time and place, but if you can believe it, seeing Vallant in front of a crowd of random shouting savages spurred the very thoughts I conveyed in the lines above. Go figure.
