“I” Versus “Me”

When you over-glorify a word, you distort its meaning—which is what the individualists have done to the word “I”. With their relentless over-glorification, the individualists have politicized the word “I”, making it appear like a raised middle finger directed at humankind. They are convinced that when they use the word “I”, they are not only referring to themselves but also flaunting their egoism and proving their intellectual independence. But “I” is just another word, like tens of thousands of other words, and it’s not logical to encumber a word with political agendas. In my opinion,“me” and “myself” are far more honorable and upright words than “I”.
