The cult of the individual leads to tyranny, not liberty
Excellent essay. Your final comment about the UK....yes Britain - arguably always in the vanguard of liberal individualism - is now the great exemplar of liberty's Icarus-like failure to know any restraints to it. Your reference to Mrs Thatcher is also apt. You might find this essay of mine on that subject of interest: https://grahamcunningham.substack.com/p/mrs-thatcher-and-the-good-life
Superb article. If only we had a conservative government at Westminster.
I hope that your work will inform a new party and help them establish some fundamentals, when the existing one finds itself - shortly - in the very long grass.
