Comment on Individualism is a disease

fetherston Fri, Jan 4, 2008
If I had to pinpoint the cause of this individualistic trend I would have trouble identifying it exactly. I believe it to be a combination of long standing cultural values involving the structure of its entertainment, marketing and politicians.

However this poster is not about its causes, it is more about its end result. It is disheartening to see people of the same culture so isolated from one another in public places and gatherings. A casual conversation almost always ends in "...and what do you want?"

Also, inline to your comment it is interesting to look at the similarities of Japanese and American youth.
