More individualism, please – now!

Flock_of_sheep

That anti-individualism can unite everyone from rabble-rousing leftists to nonsense-spouting neo-fascists suggests that a herdlike thoughtlessness is a far bigger problem right now. It speaks to the absence of one of the key components of any meaningful culture of individualism: eccentricity of thought, a willingness to challenge the dominant narrative of the age. It is once again a case of life imitating Life of Brian.
