Anthem DefinitionsFor each term, write the definition(s) completely in your notes.DirectionsCollectivismThe enslavement of the individual to a group-whether to a race, class or state does not matter

Collectivism holds that man must be chained to a collective action and collective thought for the sake of what is called the common good

IndividualismRegards man-every man-as an independent, sovereign entity who possesses an inalienable right to his own life, a right derived from his nature as a rational being

Individualism holds that a civilized society can be achieved only on the basis of the recognition of individual rights-and that a group, as such, has no rights other than the individual rights of its members

AltruismThe basic principle is that man has no right to exist for his own sake, that service to others is the only justification of his existence

Self sacrifice is the highest moral duty, virtue and value

Self = standard of evilSelfless = standard of good

EgoismStates that each mans primary moral obligation is to achieve his own welfare, well-being or self interest

ConformityThe act or habit of bringing [oneself] into harmony or agreement with others

Adhering to conventional behavior

ObedienceComplying with a command

Yielding to those in authority

IndependenceOnes acceptance of the responsibility of forming ones own judgments and of living by the work of ones own mind
