Found this quote about individualism that I really like. It's not unusual to find people who like to use "we" a lot to get what they want but I can't help but wonder how many among the "we"s are willing partners. What's so wrong with being unique and having one's own point of view, even if he or she may be wrong? If one can be proven wrong and learn to accept it, wouldn't that be a much more rewarding process than being branded a "we" and forced to adopt the agenda of the masses?
The word "We" is as lime poured over men, which sets and hardens to stone, and crushes all beneath it, and that which is white and that which is black are lost equally in the grey of it. It is the word by which the depraved steal the virtue of the good, by which the weak steal the might of the strong, by which the fools steal the wisdom of the sages. | Anthem, Chapter 11
