Arbitrariness: word of the day. It means that those who can, need provide no excuse or justification for behaving the way they do. It is their prerogative to think, act (upon) and speak the way they choose. Apparently, this is like a badge of honor, like a knighthood: ‘arise to the brotherhood of the Arbitrary. You may now do as you please-- to yourself, but, more importantly, to others’
NB: to be strongly distinguished from the kind of behavior that leads you to wander around the house picking up random objects and thinking stray thoughts. That needs no official sanction, thankfully
