What is collectivism?

Collectivism is the concept that a group of people have more rights, that the individuals individually.
It is wrong to steal
But a majority may steal from whom they like.(tax)

Giving and collectivism

Only individual men have a right to decide when or whether they wish to help others; society as an organised political system- has no rights in the matter at all.

   --  Ayn Rand


The 'common good' of a collective- a race, a class, a state- was the justification of every tyranny ever established over men

   --  Ayn Rand


For the word "we" must never be spoken, save by ones choice and as a second thought. This word must never be placed first within a mans soul, else it becomes a monster, the root of all evils on earth, the root of mans tourture by men, and of an unspeakable lie.

   --  Ayn Rand


We've taught men to unite, that makes one neck to leash. The proposition that man has no rights, that the collective is all.

   --  Ayn Rand


Multiculturalism is, therefore (like nationalism and even racialism), just another form of collectivism, and like all forms of collectivism it subordinates the rights and needs of the individual to those of the social group, thereby endangering freedom and personal self-development.
