I am really, really politically driven. It’s less about personal ambition and more about collective ambition. I think we live in a society that fetishizes and encourages personal ambition in all kinds of ways, including by creating all these levels of precarity and insecurity. The stakes of winning are so high, and everybody is so scared. While we encourage our personal ambition, we diminish and discourage collective ambition. I think that focus on personal ambition is really understandable, because we live in such an unequal society — but it will kill us.
