Individual will against the needs of society.

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Fassa Albrecht, Sep 3, 2008.

  1. In today's society, when do the needs of society overcome the needs of the individual?

    This is a Platonic subject...

    Are you asking about the "will" of the individual or the "needs" of the individual? Will and needs are very different.

  9. I'm talking about NEEDS- those things which are crucial to survival.

    I think it really depends on the individual. History has proven time and time again that some individuals hold more value than others.
  12. I don't really know, but I found out my English teacher this year studied at Newcastle upon Tyre. Thought that was interesting.

    Yeah, but it makes that point about the needs of the many and the needs of the one, right?
  14. Yep!

    The individual must always be sacrificed for the good of society.


    So says Spock.

    On the other hand, tolerance of the individual is more important than society and state.


    So says Einstein.
  17. When people are scared enough to think so.

    And not vomit on basses.

    To vomit or not to vomit? That is the question.
