What separates people who are intellectually honest from a dogmatic regurgitating simpleton is the ability to consider ideas that challenge your own with honest curiosity.
This is something collectivism as a whole lacks.
You cannot defeat feelz with facts. If someone says "but I feel..." during a discussion, you cannot win.
People who are unafraid to consider all possibilities are the true leaders.
Things are never black and white. There are way more than two sides and every side has it right and wrong.
Open your mind. A survivalist is not mired by dogma, he considers every possibility. He is not true to a side, he is true to truth and the pursuit of it. He makes decisions that ensure the outcome that meets the mission.
