The Myth of the Individual
Byron Hathaway

I think, in general, you’re right. We certainly do learn from each other. However, some of us are alone. Our cultural idea of “rugged individualism” as well as technology that encapsulates us separates many from the group. Many people live in isolation and don’t see a value to their existence. Your concept works for members of a group but maybe not for the loner or the shunned.
