How do we actually define “independence”?

Article by Water and Music via the ever excellent Penny Fractions newsletter. Picked out this quote in particular:

Jon Tanners proposed a similar set of ideas last month in his newsletter Applied Science, namely that being “independent” as an artist is about having access to benefits that any normal business owner would want — from financial clarity and agency, to data access and control, to education and creative autonomy. Importantly, writes Tanners: “It is not a strict binary between two choices that never truly existed. Independence is a method, not a resting state .”
