How to use "Autonomy" in context?

Autonomy is a complex and often contested concept. It can mean different things to different people, and has been seen as a cornerstone of human rights. For many people, autonomy is the ability to make choices for oneself, free from interference or coercion from others. In democratic societies, autonomy is seen as a cornerstone of freedom and liberty.

However, autonomy can also be seen as a threat to society. It can fragileize society, leading to individualism and a dependency on society that is not in the interests of either individuals or society as a whole.
