The word "collectivism" sounds old-fashioned today. It's supposed to.
It's supposed to sound like a label from a bygone age when people were combing US government offices for hidden Soviet spies.
Collectivism is tied to other obsolete slogans like "Better dead than Red" and "America, love it or leave it." In other words, we're supposed to think collectivism was simply a trendy idea that ran out of steam. You know, a bunch of crazy paranoids were scrambling around warning everybody the sky was falling, but it wasn't. They yelled COLLECTIVISM IS COMING, WATCH OUT, but nothing happened.
Well, the truth is, collectivism won its war. It absolutely won.
So it changed its name. It became a thousand names behind a thousand masks.
So now we're the spies. We're the spies for freedom, and they're profiling us and trying to marginalize our influence.
Think back to the war of 1776. The Colonists came together, some of them. They banded together to fight the British. They were a group, and ultimately they won. But what did they do after that? They somehow managed to frame founding documents that established freedom of the individual, not the group, as the primary building block of the new Republic.
If we win this fight to preserve freedom in America, will we have the same understanding of what The Individual means? Or will we be so brainwashed that we'll preach and teach freedom for The Group? If we take the latter path, we'll fall right back into the trap of collectivism.
