why i don't capitalize my name or pronouns

i don't capitalize my name or the pronoun "i" when referring to myself because i feel that over-emphasizes the significance of the writer. i want my writing to be able to speak for itself, the ideas i present are more important than the person writing them. i understand that even putting a name on anything then, is rather hypocritical, but it is, i believe necessary if i ever want to be heard. i suppose this is just my small statement regarding bigger things.



I’ll paraphrase Thoreau here... Rather than love, than money, than faith, than fame, than fairness, give me truth.
— Christopher Johnson McCandless
