Individualism Words | 7 Pages. Individualism The Opposite of Collectivism Individualists societies are those in which the interest of the individual prevails over the interest of the group, and in which people are accepted to look after themselves and their imigiate families.   Individualism is the idea that individuals are the fundamental reality and societies, races, species and the like are abstractions for similarities among individuals or how individuals associate and interact. Society, race, and species are metapho.

  The individual which libertarians cherish and see exists only in community. If you take people and really isolate them, and set them to act out on .   Individualism is not an idea, a concept, or a philosophical insight, but, as explained in Part 3 of my extended review of MacDonald’s book, its essence lies in “the cutting off” of the Western family “from the wider kinship group.” And this cutting off was started by illiterate northern European hunter-gatherers during the last.

The book, in other words, isn't easy to classify in terms of genre though it's usually discussed as a novel. Likewise, Walt Whitman's poetry broke many poetic conventions of the time. Walt Whitman, for example, developed "free verse," a style of writing poetry that didn't rely on meter or rhyme.   The difference between collectivism and individualism is in what each ideology considers as important: the individual or the group. If communism, socialism, capitalism, liberalism, conservatism, Maoism, Nazism, etc. were not enough to confuse people as different political ideologies, we now have to confront with collectivism and individualism.
