The Myth of the Greater Good

Have you ever been at the gym and seen somebody with a shirt that says "Do it for the greater good." or "The group over the individual." I actually saw that once. On the gym wall of my government school it was actually painted, "There is no I in Team."

Instances such as these all help to perpetuate and propagate the myth of the greater good.

People claim that there is an inhrent good for a culture. Cultures do not exist, and cannot act. The only thing which exists is the individual.

There may be no "I" in "team"...but there is an "m" and an "e"...which spells ME.
