I thought this would be the best place to put this(being on the subject of society et al).
OK, allow me to begin. Collectivism is the anti-thesis of Individualism and vice-versa.
Have you ever thought about what collectivism is? Collectivism is "where you become an ant" as opposed to having a free mind. It has been moved so far as to say that there isn't an individual mind! How is that physically or even biologically possible for a human? From what I have read, and from several proffeseurs opinions, IT ISN'T POSSIBLE!
But wait! If Collectivism is not "possible", what of individualism? If the anti-thesis of something not possible is possible, wouldn't that be illogical? It must be, therefore, that individualism "is correct"; however, it ultimately "isn't". A most unsatisfactory answer!
Individualism shouldn't "be able to exist" beyond being a "concept", but it is the correct "answer", if you catch my drift. Everyone has an individual mind, and that cannot be "collectivized", per se. But if it cannot, would that make individualism "correct"?
Well, the opposite of something that doesn't exist, that seems absurd. And that is my exact notion on the idea of individualism! That is what I am trying to say, that there is nothing which exists beyond a conceptual idea that is the opposite of an impossible ability. That is my two cents.
