    Default please read over

    It is much better for man to live on a deserted island, than to live in a society where he is nothing more than a pawn ready to be sacrificed to the altar of the "public good." Trying to peruse and achieve dreams on an individual level is what America is based upon. When a person looses that individuality they become nothing more than a drone of society. Individualism is better that collectivism. Individualism focuses on the self before the collective while collectivism focuses on the group rather than the person. Individualism has evolved over time while collectivism has been slowly declining. Individualism is better suited for today’s society. For this purpose it is important to know exactly what these terms mean.

    Individualism focuses on the self rather than society, while collectivism focuses on society rather than the individual.
