DOES COLLECTIVISM VIOLATE INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS?

Under collectivism, the individual is stripped of the unalienable rights which protect him from domination by the group. Those unalienable rights are: The right to life, liberty, property and the pursuit (not guarantee) of happiness.

COLLECTIVISM DENIES:

Your right to your life   because, under collectivism, the purpose of your life is to serve the “common good” as determined by the group (collective) which is in power.  If you can’t choose your own (rational) actions, you don’t  own your life and you will obey.

Your right to your property because, under collectivism, all property is either owned (socialism), or controlled (fascism) by the collective and you are a slave of the state.

Your right to your liberty   because under collectivism you must obey the group or collective in power.  That is not individual freedom or liberty.

Your right to the pursuit of your happiness because under collectivism, it is the happiness of the collective that is the goal or the standard to be pursued.  You are the slave to the happiness of the collective.

Your right to religious freedombecause the collective determines the good, not you, not God.

Your right to free speech because the collective, not you, decides what can be said.

Your right to free trade because there is only controlled production and distribution  when there is no private property.
