On Transcending Our Worst Tendencies
Charlie Ambler

There are different shades of individualism and collectivism. Between the two I would prefer individualism because collectivism is nothing but the tyranny of the majority. It degrades human dignity, dehumanizes the people and brings out the worst behaviours from them.What is collectivist is rally an oligarchy, typically an authoritarian clique that exercises power ostensibly for the greater good of the society like the Communist Party of China.

However, individualism should be enlightened and avoid narcissism.It should keep in the larger good of the society while facilitating individual advancement and self-actualization.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
