Collectivism
holds that, in human affairs, the collective – society, the community,
the nation, the proletariat, the race, etc. – is the unit of reality
and the standard of value. On this view, the individual has reality
only as a part of the group, and value only insofar as he serves
it.

~ Leonard
Peikoff

think on its own. It has no uniqueness; it has no individual personality.
