የግለሰብ መብት እና የቡድን መብት

Only the individual can think, and thereby create new values for society–nay, even  set up new moral standards  to which the life of the community conforms.

It is clear that all the valuable things, material, spiritual, and moral, which we receive from society can be traced back through countless  generations  to  certain  creative  individuals. The use  of fire, the cultivation  of edible  plants, the steam engine–each was discovered by one man.

Without  creative, independently thinking and judging personalities the upward development  of  society is as unthinkable as  the development of  the individual personality  without the nourishing soil  of the community.

The health  of society  thus depends  quite as much on the  independence of the individuals composing it as on their close political cohesion.

It  has  been  said very  justly  that Græco-Europeo-American culture as a whole, and in particular its  brilliant  flowering  in  the Italian  Renaissance, which  put  an  end  to the  stagnation  of mediæval  Europe,  is  based  on  the liberation  and comparative isolation  of  the individual.
