Collectivism

Community, collectivism, working together etc are all invoked in the socialist ideology, and consequently have become taboo for a while now. For a while now, individualism has accelerated without restraint; greed has been well fed; to many, the world has grown colder. This begs the question. Why is working together, caring for others, and making small sacrifices for the prosperity of society a bad thing? The republicans would argue it takes away your freedoms, and would then start to recite a litany of rights granted in the Constitution, still leaving their vague claim unsupported and the important question unanswered. The Democratic Party has given those words life again, selling them to the American people as GOOD values that America was actually built upon. Bill Clinton, Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden among others have made the case for community, collectivism,working together etc.

He believes in a country where everyone is held accountable. Where no one can steal your purse on Main Street or your pension on Wall Street. President Obama believes in a country where we invest in education, in roads and bridges, in science, and in the future, so we can create new opportunities, so the next kid can make it big, and the kid after that, and the kid after that. That’s what president Obama believes. And that’s how we build the economy of the future. An economy with more jobs and less debt. We root it in fairness. We grow it with opportunity. And we build it together.

-Elizabeth Warren

The most important question is, what kind of country do you want to live in? If you want a you’re-on-your-own, winner-take-all society, you should support the Republican ticket. If you want a country of shared prosperity and shared responsibility — a we’re-all-in-this-together society — you should vote for Barack Obama and Joe Biden

-Bill Clinton
