Science and Belonging (to the Collective)

Alice O’Connor, whose pen name was Ayn Rand, asked in her Textbook of Americanism, “What Is the Basic Issue in the World Today?” Her answer in 1946 was,

The basic issue in the world today is between two principles:  Individualism and Collectivism.


Individualism holds that man has unalienable rights which cannot be taken away from him by any man, nor by any number, group or collective of other men. Therefore, each man exists by his own right and for his own sake, not for the sake of the group.


Collectivism holds that man has no rights; that his work—his body and his personality belong to the group; that the group can do with him as it pleases: in any manner it pleases, for the sake of whatever it decides to be its own welfare. Therefore, each man exists only by the permission of the group and for the sake of the group.


These two principles are the roots of two opposite social systems, The basic issue of the world today is between these two systems.”

Simply, the choice between the two principles comes down to this:

Individualism: To be or not to be.

Collectivism: To belong or not to belong.

There actually is no choice since Individualism, according to the Smithsonian Institution, is a sign of whiteness. The Smithsonian Institution characterizes Rugged Individualism by the following signs of whiteness:

The individual is the primary unit


Independence & autonomy highly valued + rewarded

Individuals assumed to be in control of their environment, “You get what you deserve”

Since Individualism is a sign of whiteness, we must de facto work towards Collectivism.

Alice O’Connor went on to describe a method to ensure Collectivism:

Under a system of Collectivism, men have to gang up on one another – and whoever has the biggest gang at the moment, holds all rights, while the loser (the individual or the minority) has none. Any man can be an absolute master or a helpless slave—according to the size of his gang.

Alice O’Connor is right. To eliminate whiteness and form a system of Collectivism, we must gang up on one another. The traditional way to do this is to use an anonymous reporting system.

But perhaps the most effective way to ensure Collectivism is to kill the racist white male supremacist scientific method and then follow the science.

In the video below (1:21:52), Neil deGrasse Tyson, a self-proclaimed consensus scientist, ensures us that the “individual scientist does not matter.”  Consensus science frees us from racist Individualism and leads us to the antiracist Collective.
