Collectivism is a term used to describe any moral, political,or social outlook, that stresses human interdependence and theimportance of a collective, rather than the importan…ce of separateindividuals. Collectivists focus on community and society, and seekto give priority to group goals over individual goals. . The philosophical underpinnings of collectivism are for somerelated toholism or organicism - the view that the whole is greaterthan the sum of its parts. Specifically, a society as a whole canbe seen as having more meaning or value than the separateindividuals that make up that society. . Collectivism is widely seen as the antipole ofindividualism. . Collectivism demands that the group be more important than theindividual. It requires the individual to sacrifice himself for thealleged good of the group. Although different from altruism,collectivism complements it well. Altruism demands sacrifice forothers, collectivism demands sacrifice for the group. Collectivismleads to altruism. There is a problem, however. 'Collectivism' has very negativeconnotations and is widely used as a synonym of socialism - byopponents of socialism. I've never heard anyone describe himself orherself as a 'collectivist'. The term "collectivism" means to give a group priority over theindividuals in the group. This means that even though not everyoneagree with what is being said, the majority will carry the vote.
Collectivization in the Soviet Union was a policy pursued under Joseph Stalin, between 1928 and 1940, in replacement of the failing New Economic Policy. The goal of this poli…cy was to consolidate individual land and labour into huge, more modern, Collective farms (in Russian these large, collective farms were called: ÐºÐ¾Ð»Ñ Ð¾ÌÐ·, better known as Kolkhoz, plural kolkhozy). The Soviet leadership was confident that the replacement of individual peasant farms by kolkhozy would immediately increase the food supply for urban populations, the supply of raw materials for processing industry, and agricultural exports. Collectivization was thus regarded as the solution to the crisis of agricultural distribution (mainly in grain deliveries) that had developed since 1927. This problem became more acute as the Soviet Union pressed ahead with its ambitious industrialization program.
