What is one issue that reflects the individualist versus collectivist outlook in today’s times? Individualism and collectivist outlook have been suppressed and encouraged throughout history. What is one issue that reflects these concepts in my own times? I think that one of these issues, or at least one of the big ones, is politics. How does it do this? A theme in history that has been growing is the fact that people tend to believe what the majority believes before doing their own research and choosing for themselves. They believe it just because a lot of other people already believes in it and the state promotes it, even though the majority or the state may be wrong, which would make false information fully accepted. So how does politics reflect the individualist versus collectivist outlook in my own times? An example of this is how different sides of a political or news story are suppressed. Many stories end up coming out one-sided because many people are biased. Many people tend to forget that just because the majority is going for something, does not mean that it is right, it may be wrong. That they can do their own research and open up to new opinions.
