Individualism

By: Hannah Collins and Collin Lewis

What is individualism?

Individualism can be described as taking your own life and future into your hands, letting no one else control your destiny. You give yourself the option to be poor or rich, happy or sad, you have a chance to give your life meaning. If you feel your life is futile It's your fault. It may sound harsh, but you are responsible for your happiness.

How does Rand view agreements by society or community?

An agreement reached by a group of men is only a compromise or an average drawn upon many individual thoughts.

Why does individualism not descend into anarchy, or lawless chaos?

individualism does not descend into anarchy, or lawless chaos because we still follow a law, but if your personal interest conflict with the law you can be punished.
