Jeff Landauer Quote

“Collectivism is a form of anthropomorphism. It attempts to see a group of individuals as having a single identity similar to a person. ... Collectivism demands that the group be more important than the individual. It requires the individual to sacrifice himself for the alleged good of the group.”

I am not quite sure how to rate this quote. 5 stars for an accurate definition or, a thumbs down for what has replaced the once representative republic of individual sovereigns.

Perhaps if the planet was being attacked..... The key here is the word "alleged"

Are we to give up our individual selves to be identified as a group of either haves or have nots as Hillary's book "It Takes a Village. "

Mike, Pleasant Hill

Ah yes the politics of group identity, the foundation of statist progressivism.

Five stars for the truth of the matter. In context, this quote is not advocating collectivism, just defining it.

Collectivist always seek to extinguish the brush fires of independence that reside in the industrious individual.
