Safe Mode: On
Individualism vs. Collectivism

Prof. Aeon Skoble claims that if we really care about the wellbeing of communities, we should keep in mind the unique and autonomous individuals that make it up. Each individual is deserving of respect and dignity, and should be free to pursue their own ends as long as they don't infringe upon the freedom of others. Although the concept of community is important, it does not warrant overlooking the individuals that comprise it.

    This ties back to the discussion we had about the founding father's first piece of socialist legislation MD. I don't understand how slig More..

    • @BigDaddyHarrison Your philosophy is one that if the government doesn't take care of these people, no one will, I reject it on it's face.
