Agree; the individualistic dogma that rules our societies is just irrational; life is characterized by the emergent properties which result from complex systems.

In the same way that you can explaint complex pluricelular organism from the properties of its constituyent parts, that is cells, you can't understand the potential of the whole humanity just by isolating individuals and considering that those are just the sum of each part. I mean, for example, intelligence is a emergent property of the society.
