Why write a memoir?

The best answer to the above question I have found in the following quotation from Thomas Larson:
” The self’s new acumen via the memoir possesses a political mandate as well. Such a form asks me to write ( or make graphic stories, videos, oral histories, one-person stage shows) about how recollecting my experience nurtures my individuality and works against a society that demands I kowtow to my social group, my ethnic identity, and my corporate warden be it Pfizer or Pepsi.”
