The Collective Versus The Individual
The collectivists philosophy expects us to trade our individual responsibility for the comfort of collective power.

They want us to give up every and all freedoms to the nanny state which always has the best interests of the collective in mind. So if you make more money than your fellow man, then the state will correct that balance by taking what they think you do not deserve and redistributing that to the collective. The diving force behind this is the victim hood mentality, which is that everyone in the world that was born into a tough sometimes horrible situation is a victim of oppression from someone else. There is absolutely no responsibility place on them, or their parents or their great grand parents, it is the fault of so rich white people who died. We are not allowed to say these things, because someone's feeling could be hurt because this might bring dishonor to personal memory of their great, great, great grand parents. The world is not fair, it never has just look at nature, sometimes Bambi and her mom gets killed, it's not fair. Sometimes people don't make a success of their lives, sometimes they end up as drug addicts, it's not fair.

This was a really good speech by Ben, please take a few minutes to check it out below.

"Freedom of speech and thought matters, especially when it is speech and thought with which we disagree. The moment the majority decides to destroy people for engaging in thought it dislikes, thought crime becomes a reality." - Ben Shapiro
