There are many things that we as individuals need to do collectively. That does not constitute Collectivism. Communism is Collectivism. "From each according to his ability, and to each according to his need"---with an evil jackass getting to decide exactly what you're good at, and how big a bowl of rice you need today. Quoting: Muzzle
Yeah that would be extreme collectivism. Also the only real way to build a true utopia. The only way you can guarantee your society is perfect and free of conflict is if you control everything
Sure it would get the job done, no conflict and what not, but would it really be worth it in the long run?
Yeah individuals need to work together, that's just a fact. Its a lot easier to work together when you understand the people you're working with and aren't going to shun them because they live on "that" side of the street or because they buy "that" brand of clothes, etc.
Like look at all the hatred on both sides of the OWS debate. Dude if they would take five minutes to sit down and actually talk to each other and explain why they think the way they do without
trying to ram it down the other sides throat like an objective fact then maybe
they'd get somewhere with it instead of basically wanting to kill the other side for thinking differently.
