The leftist political faction, that is the Democrats, in the United States has promised for over a century that it is their intent to transform the United States from a republic, from an individualist nation to a democracy, to a collectivist nation. That intent was clearly stated on October 30, 2008, when Comrade Obama said that they were five days from fundamentally transforming the United States of America. The transformation to which the Comrade referred was to complete the transformation that began over a century ago or to transform the United States from a republic to a democracy, from an individualist nation to a collectivist nation.
This is an excerpt from an article I saw on the internet entitled, “Conformity Or Collectivism: Is Individualism Or Collectivism?” No author was named. The article said, “Mark Twain once said, ‘A round man cannot be expected to fit in a square hole right away. He must have time to modify his shape.’ This quote revolves around the idea of conformity. Conformity or collectivism is the tendency to align attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors with those around you. It's a powerful force that can take the form of overt social pressure or subtler unconscious influence. As much as people think of themselves as individuals, the fact is that we're driven to fit in, and that usually means going with the flow. The problem with conformity or collectivism is the loss of individuality.
Conformists are also known as sheep and the leaders or individualistic supporters are known as lions in society. Is individualism or collectivism more beneficial to society as well as the individual? Where can a balance between the two be found?
Opponents of the collectivism idea say that there is no room for individuality when a society conforms. Individualism is the idea that the individual’s life belongs to him and that he has an inalienable right to live it as he sees fit, to act on his own judgment, to keep and use the product of his effort.”
This is the greatest conflict we have in this mid-term election. Those on the left are advocates for collectivism, conformity, communism. This is what Karl Marx meant when he claimed society must be a classless society. The classless society to which Marx referred would be a society where all people thought the same, where all people conformed to collectivism, communism. Equity would reign supreme. We would all have the same, think the same, behave the same, we would all be the same.
Individualism, individual liberty, and freedom is the antithesis of collectivism. The United States was founded as an individualist nation. The founders recognized that each individual was created by God as an individual. Each individual has their own thoughts, their own goals, and desires to live their own life, make their own choices, and have their own thoughts and express those thoughts.
This mid-term election has brought these two conflicting ideologies to a head. Will the principle of individualism prevail, or will the transformation to collectivism be supported and continued.
The Democrats advocate for transformation and a continuation down “The Road to Tyranny” or collectivism, conformity, and communism. The Conservatives or individualists are supporting not just a slowdown of the transformation, but a complete repudiation of the transformation and turn once again to individualism and restore our republic.
