What is individuality? As a population, we would like to think we have free will, and that we are all special snowflakes since these thoughts comfort us as we sail our giant rock through the incomprehensibly large oblivion of space. Especially in a country like the United States of America, we especially value our freedom and chances for opportunity very heavily. The real question is the following: how much individuality do we really have. Sooner or later we all become what society tells us to be to an extent. If we took a human and raised said person in a society in which no one ever married each other, and free love was normal, then they would be completely and utterly shocked by our customs. Now I pose the question: what are we other than society's expectations? Sure we have some control along the way (assuming free will over fatalism which is an entirely different debate) seeing as how we can choose which job we want and where to live to an extent, but society's expectations and a majority of peoples lives go like this: birth, lower school, middle school, high school, college, (some like a gap year yet it is fairly uncommon), job, get married, have kids, kids go to college, retire, die. Sure, day to day interactions vary and whatnot, but even where we go to college, what jobs we do in life, and who we would marry is fairly laid out for us. For example - Kowalski is good at science and math, he is now recommended to an engineering school. After having everyone tell him to go study engineering, what a surprise, he goes into engineering. Once he hits age 40, his mother and all of his friends start bothering him to get married and have kids. What a surprise, he does that. Why? Because we have an innate desire to fit to society's standards. It isn't the world that teaches us to fit in, we want to fit in. Sure some might desire success, but they don't want to be weirdly different necessarily. Much like ants follow what they are best at in their careers and daily lives, so do humans. While we might think we have a choice, I challenge you to turn the tide against society without emergency money at your disposal. How are we that much different than the ant? Sure, we have personality and views on issues. However, you are following the same societal expectations that an ant would follow in their respective society. If you wanted to point out a country undergoing a revolution, since surely this embodies an act of individuality. I'd respond no again. We are simply going with a revolutionary society's expectations now, and oftentimes those expectations are based off of other nation's.
In conclusion: Overall, complete individuality is dead
