Individualism, what is it?  It’s about how rich you are, how perfect you are, how well others understand you.  It’s a euphemism for selfishness—selfishness of matter, of morals, of relations.  It is the social philosophy of this modern age.  But consider, even among the most rich, virtuous, and renowned, whom among them are content?  It is the ones with community, friends, and family.  Realize, life is not chiefly about being yourself.  Life is about being together.  So hold your individualism with caution—else one day you wake up an individual… and nothing more.

  1. The modern sort of individualism isn’t so individual.

    When those social vacuums open up in our lives, numerous products and entertainments fill it up.

    When everyone has to sell themselves as an individual, they have to model themselves on the person everyone else wants. Everyone ends up having to behave the same to survive.

    In modern family, jobs, social organizations we hold one another as slaves.
    Yet only by properly working together can people give one another the possibility of being an individual.
