    Individualism is the belief in the primary importance of the individual and in the virtues of self-reliance and personal independence. The foundation of individualism lies in one's moral right to pursue one's own happiness. When pursuing personal goals it requires a large amount of independence, initiative, and self-responsibility. When trying to receive an education it is the single individual that reads the book goes to class and passes or fails the tests. Individualism explains that society is made of a group of individuals. Individualism advocates that each person has his or her own failures and successes that may be influenced by society but it not defined by it. If a man goes out for a job and is denied according to individualism it is his own fault because he was missing whatever the employer needed regardless to wither or not that particular job was in low demand. Individualism is only opposed to man living in society as a non-individual. It does not agree with the person being an unimportant component in society. Individualism states that every person regardless of age race, class or sex has the right to make their own choices and choose their own path. Though individualism is a popular philosophy now it was not always so well accepted.
    Collectivism is a belief in the primary importance of the group rather than the individual. It asserts that the collective is more than just a group of people who interact with each other, that the people are one. Collectivism asserts that the collective has a single identity, which is made up of a group of individuals. It attempts to take a group of individuals and make them into a single entity similar to a person. In Collectivism the individual comes second to the collective. The standard of good in a collectivist system is whether or not it benefits the group rather than the individual. By this definition it is ethical to ignore the needs and life of a single person if the group has something to gain. There is no individual gain in collectivism. The failures and success of the group are given to everyone evenly. If the collective does something great like create a new energy source the scientists and technicians would be given the same amount of create as another person in the collective who had no idea that type of research was going on.

    That is good.

    That is good too.

    One problem is that collectives don't collectives don't invent anything and don't discover anything. Individuals do those things. Isaac Newton could not have been replaced by a million people.
