The Rugged Individualist!

HUMAN KIND HAS ALWAYS BEEN SOCIAL! .. THEY HAVE UNDERSTOOD FROM THE BEGINNING OF TIME THAT THE BEST WAY TO SURVIVE, AND THRIVE, AS INDIVIDUALS, IS TO DO SO IN A GROUP!
THE SEVERE CONDITIONS IN THE ENVIRONMENT MADE THAT NECESSARY! .. AS OUR TECHNOLOGY ADVANCED AND OUR SURVIVAL DID NOT DEPEND ON CLOSE COOPERATION WITHIN OUR COMMUNITY, WE ENTERED INTO A LIFE STYLE OF RUGGED INDIVIDUALISM, AND INDIVIDUAL FREEDOM. ..WE BECAME INDEPENDENT OF GROUPS AND GOVERNMENT.
THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS,.. THAT ALL OF THOSE COMPETING RUGGED INDIVIDUALISTS, EVENTUALLY FOUND OUT THAT THEY CAN BECOME MORE COMPETITIVE IF THEY SACRIFICED THEIR INDIVIDUALISM, AND MERGED WITH BIGGER AND BIGGER GROUPS!
THE POINT IS THAT RIGHT NOW, INDIVIDUAL FREEDOM, AND RUGGED INDIVIDUALISM IS A DEAD ISSUE, IT DOES NOT EXIST IN THE REAL WORLD,… AS WE BECOME MORE AND MORE DEPENDENT ON EACH OTHER, IN A COMPLEX COMPETITIVE SOCIETY.
THE URGE TO SURVIVE AND THRIVE MAKES IT NECESSARY FOR INDIVIDUALS, TO COME TOGETHER, IN A GROUP ENVIRONMENT SO AS TO ADVANCE AND PROTECT THEIR INDIVIDUAL WELL BEING. … IN UNITY THEIR IS STRENGTH!

LIKE IT OR NOT THAT IS THE REAL WORLD!
TRUE FREEDOM OF THE INDIVIDUAL IS POSSIBLE ONLY UNDER THE CONDITIONS OF ABUNDANCE. NOT SELF IMPOSED SCARCITY AS IS NOW THE CASE, … WHERE, WHAT IS SCARCE IS VALUABLE, AND WHAT IS PLENTIFUL IS CHEAP!
EVERYTHING IN THIS WORLD HAS LIMITATIONS, EVEN FREEDOM.
WHEN THE CONDITIONS OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS CHANGE, THE PEOPLE LIVING IN THOSE CONDITIONS WILL REFLECT THOSE CHANGING CONDITIONS AND NEW AND DIFFERENT VALUES WILL EMERGE!
THE VALUE OF FREEDOM OF THE INDIVIDUAL WILL HAVE NEW AND DIFFERENT CHARACTERISTICS THAN IT NOW HAS.
RULES AND REGULATIONS THAT ARE ENFORCED BY THE GROUP IN THE FORM OF A GOVT OR COMMITTEE OR WHATEVER WILL NO LONGER BE NECESSARY, AS A NEW TYPE OF PERSON EMERGES BECAUSE OF THE NEW CONDITIONS.
SELF DISCIPLINE WILL REPLACE DISCIPLINE IMPOSED BY EXTERNAL FORCES.
THE DESIRE OR NEED TO HAVE POWER OVER OTHERS WILL BECOME A THING OF THE PAST. THE MOTIVATION TO ACCUMULATE EXCESSIVE AMOUNTS OF MATERIAL WEALTH, WILL NOT EXIST.
A WHOLE SOCIETY, THAT HAS THE CHARACTERISTICS OF ABUNDANT MATERIAL WEALTH, WILL NO LONGER PUT AN EXCESSIVE VALUE ON THAT MATERIAL WEALTH.
WHAT WILL MOST LIKELY BE VALUED IN THE FUTURE AND CONSEQUENTLY GIVE INDIVIDUALS A SENSE OF SELF WORTH, …IS THE AMOUNT OF KNOWLEDGE, SKILL, AND EXPERTISE THAT THEY CAN AQUIRE, …AND THE SHARING OF THOSE QUALITIES WITH OTHERS!
IT IS THAT WHAT WILL GIVE INDIVIDUALS STATUS, .. IN A SOCIAL NON-COMPETITIVE WORLD!
HEY, …. CRAWL OUT OF THE PAST, AND MOVE TOWARD THE FUTURE!!!!
