Individualism And Mass Society - Poem by Dr. Antony Theodore

The thought of humanism
leads us to
personalism and individualism.

We observe individualism
as belonging to the mass
mentality of modern society.

The characteristic of the
mass society is
that it is terribly
and it isolates
each individual subject
from his immediate
neighbor, reducing
his relationship to a
state of impersonal,
purely formal
and abstract one.

Topic(s) of this poem: abstract, individualism, social behaviour, societal

    Humanism leads to two very different avenues; personalism and individualism. Individualism is part of modern day society. It puts a wall between each person and their neighbour thereby reducing the relationship to an impersonal level, an abstract one which is purely conventional. This can be seen each day in our world if we are observant. (Report)Reply
