The Idea - Part 2 - A New Individualism
Out of the two - group identity vs individual identity - which is more important?
I would have to say individual identity since at the core of all of humanity is the individual - since the individual is the most basic, smallest, and the most important element of the entire human community. It is possible to have individuals and no groups. But it is impossible to have groups without individuals.
Can individual identity be entirely be outside of, or separated from, group identity? Is this healthy?
Yes and yes. More on this in the future...
