" individuals already feeling apart from the collective " interesting word choice, collective?

I thought we lived in a Representative Republic with a strong set of INDIVIDUAL RIGHTs, and have a Federalist form of Governance, not a Central Government "Collective".

Seems the current powers to be are striving for an all-powerful Central Government Collective, which is Unconstitutional, perhaps that's why the current POTUS is calling former Police and Military potential "White Supremacist" terrorists since all of those seriously took an Oath to Defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign, and DOMESTIC??? The Police and the Military are potential blocks to any dictatorship arising, must demonize and marginalize them now!
Wow, you got really hung up on the context of the word collective. It’s not a conspiracy. It just means the majority opinion.

Now you are turning it into something political (which you tend to do), I've been trying to take a lot of what Robotaz says to heart and maybe learn something from it... maybe... lol jk

Collective nowadays is more in the vernacular of socialism, and from his discourse, that seems to be the side of the plate the Funkster is batting from, I could be wrong, but I doubt it!

I mean this very respectfully. A long time ago a professor who knew me well made a recommendation that has turned out to be very valuable advice.

Do some research on the word “paradigm” and the concept of a “paradigm shift”. Don’t worry about how it applies to others. Worry about how it applies to you.

One of the greatest disciplines a human can learn is to see their paradigms and learn to see around them and tear them down. You can’t function in a world of billions of connected people without paradigm discipline or you’ll be a lot less than you can be. That can be miserable, or ignorant to your own detriment, angry, hateful, delusional, etc. You can’t be sane in this world and not master you and how you appreciate paradigms.

Good luck.

Sometimes words are just used by the standard definition in the dictionary?
