@JohnRawls, Yes, the West is more socially individualistic (while economically it's less family oriented and less domestic, thus having more personal freedom from family institution and marriage), the West is more liberal and feminist, but the personal and internal freedoms itself is politically progressive and socially liberal. This is the reason why many right wingers, from Christian fundamentalists to neo-Nazis in the West, tend to have their children go to private schools, where they are more strict, authoritarian, and (depending on the private school) religious.
"while the extremes on the left and the right usually value some higher goal like nation, race, morals" I disagree. The more left, the more equality. The more right, the more hierarchy. Being socially individualistic or collective has nothing to do with the positioning of where one subject is on the left and right political spectrum. However, people who are socially individualistic tend to be in the left because many rightists promote family, religion on collective scales, slavery, and fixed morality. In other words, in many rightist societies, you have to be a certain way or else you would be labeled "immoral" "shameless" or "a conformist on the international Jewish order (Zionist Occupation Government)."
There are left wing societies or agendas that are socially collective. Left wingers who are socially collective tend to be manipulative, give peer pressure, and label anything that's not liberal "lame." And there are right wing societies or agendas that are socially individualistic. Far right wingers who are socially individualistic tend to promote the "Lone Wolf mentality," rebel against Zionist Hollywood media conformity, and are introverted.
As a far leftist myself, and as a socialist myself, a pure socialist society is socially individualistic and economically collective. The Soviet Union was socially as collective as the United States. It wasn't as socially collective as parts of the Balkans, but it wasn't as socially individualistic as Sweden or Britain. The United States is more socially collective because many Americans love to party and gather in expensive weddings. The Rave subculture, hippies, midnight clubbing, and conforming to contemporary media all originated in the States, and is socially collective. The same with social media. Facebook, which is the symbol of Americana, made society far more socially collective.
A purely egalitarian and socially equal society has no relation with being socially collective or socially individualistic.
"Not in my experience. Teacher usually teach long because either they love the job, don't know what else to do or just want the money." This is because no far right wing neo-Nazi would be hired as a teacher in public schools in the West. I mean would a progressive school want to hire someone who believes that progressive values were created by Zionist Jews so that "they can mess people up, and offer solutions (such as feminism or socially individual rights) to "rule" the world?"
