Fear

On Anonymity

Is our great contemporary fear anonymity?

If the property that grounded the self in Romanticism was sincerity, and in modernism was authenticity, then in postmodernism is it visibility?  So asked the writer of a thought-provoking article on our obsession with connectivity.

Is this what our contemporary selves really want?  To be recognised, to be connected, to be visible, if not to the millions via, say, the X Factor, then at least to the hundreds, via Twitter or Facebook or LinkedIn?
