Individualism Set the World on Fire
Our fanatical sense of individualism is killing us. Individual greed makes up company boards that choose profit today over a livable environment tomorrow. The effort and irritation of wearing a mask to potentially save lives seems to be too much to ask of some Americans. People constantly put their social media and individual messaging over the safety of themselves and others on the road. We often blame companies for the lack of control over their products, when it is the individuals using said products who are threatening the safety of others. That isn’t to say that companies should not be held responsible; rather, how can we expect a group of individuals to be responsible without expecting individuals to take responsibility?
