Individuals versus Collectives

Individuals versus Collectives

Schism: individual v collective. Why each dislike the other etc. World a competition between these two: individual with self-motivation and ideologies and future care over present self interest, collective with popular momentum, slogans and headlines dealing with the here and now to define tomorrow.

Fascism as the individual's fantasy of freedom and the collective's base visceral ideal. Great for the egos so long as you're Hitler. Ideal matched real as there's no shortage of dictators nor mobs to march in sublime orderly submission in their wake.

Communism as the collective higher ideal could only be made by individuals so what became real, revolutions led by egos directing indiscriminate groups, were by default totalitarian.
