An Individual's Dream: Essays On The Philosophy Of Sassoon
The individual is under constant pressure. What is an individual? How are they distinguished from the mass man? What is role identity and how is it incompatible with individualism? How is the abstraction, the ideology, the religious identity incompatible with individualism? Why is the crowd opposed to the individual? What methods does it use to suppress them? How can individuals fight back against the masses aligned against them? These questions are explored in this collection of essays. Those representing collectivization are in charge everywhere. From their thrones, they rule with the goal of destroying individuality along with the individual's creativity and originality, except in cases where those qualities can be used to raise profit margins. These collectivized humans, always dull, unoriginal and walking cliches possess the physical power of the majority. This makes the individual vulnerable and a target. If the individual does not stand their ground, they are lost to the maddening crowd.
