I've experienced too many individualists and especially egoists to have really simplistic ideas of the individual and/or self-interest, that make me associate those views with them.

So in my experience the collectivist side is authoritarian and the individualist side doesn't seem to have a good sense of what an individual is and has a corresponding selfishness that I don't like and think often has affinity with capitalist individualism.

I also avoid egoism (and the term 'post-left') because of those types. But most egoists don't use the word 'individualist', just the other 2.
