Individualism is a lie

This is Adam Smith, the 18th century Scottish moral philosopher and economist who founded individualism, which even today forms the fundamental social and cultural values throughout Western society - known as W.A.S.P. (White Anglo-Saxon Protestant) culture.

Individualism is based on a seriously outdated worldview

However while Adam Smith is often seen as the pioneer of individualism it's important to consider his specific worldview back at the end of the 18th century which shaped his theories and philosophies. This was based on a very outdated perspective of the universe which was based on a literal interpretation of the Book of Genesis with God as the Creator and absolute authority over everyone. God had a plan and you and everyone else was part of that plan - hence the 'invisible hand' of the market. This is what is directly responsible for the whole laissez faire capitalist culture which persists until today and exists as the 'free market' which many people still believe despite understanding that there's not really an elderly man in the sky known as God.

Individualism promotes a false illusion of separateness

Individualism promotes a false sense of separateness between individual and environment and also between self and other. This is despite very clear evidence that we are all connected through a collective mind and common perception of our environment, and also that we are both inseparable from our environment and very much a part of it.

You can see very clearly in the above quote taken from Adam Smith's 'Wealth of Nations' how he believes in the complete and total separateness between both individuals and the environment. This is what allows for the eugenicist basis of any belief in individualism which explains the sheer indifference shown towards the victims of the continuous ideological wars which are going on today.

The Triangular Relationship

This is the Triangular Relationship, developed by Stella Baker, Qultura's founder, out of Creative Law. As you can very clearly see we are connected to both each other and our environment.

What this means

This means that, in reality everything is interdependent and interconnected with everything else.

This means that any change in one circle, be it individual, natural or social, will impact inevitably on the other two areas shown in the other two circles.

But what this also means is that usually, any change needed in one area or aspect will inevitably carry both social and natural consequences.
