"Altruism demands that an individual serve others, but doesn’t stipulate whether those others should be one’s family, or the homeless, or society as a whole. Collectivism states that, in politics, society comes first and the individual must obey.  Collectivism is the application of the altruist ethics to politics."

Reader comments about this quote:
I do not believe "altruism" can authoritatively demand anything. The rest doesn't sound like an individual that wrote the Capitalist Manifesto.
