And again your mis leading with the remark
Capitalism does not lead to individualism accept with financial responsibility.
Hence everyone buying the same clothes, using the same phones l, loving Taylor Swift.
Your basic concepts are utterly false in practice.
As I already said, that is just your opinion.
I was able to speak to people who actually lived under socialism and while individualism might have been hindered in some way it wasn't to the point that you claimed.
Actually, any form of society is counter to individualism, that is the point.

It isn't though accept in semantics.
It is. Socialism is collectivist by nature. Collectivism is the opposite of individualism.
Nope only in semantics. Socialist policy can take the strain off of labor commodity and return it to the family and individual.
Time is also a function of individuality. Time to have your own thoughts.
