Comment on Individualism is a disease

pikachu Fri, Jan 4, 2008
Individualism does seem to be a sort of plague when taken to extremes. The American society reinforces individualism is every sense of the word, to the point where people do only what they need to get ahead, content to destroy every relationship they've ever had to get to their materialistic goals. Count on no one but yourself!
It would be interesting to see the United States without its gung-ho take-what-you-can mindset. What if our country had a culture steeped in community and group work, like Japan?
