Collectivist a Bad Thing to Be?

Last night during a discourse I was having with a Libertarian Constitutionalist and staunch supporter of Individual Rights, I got called one of these and had to go running to my Funk n' Wagnals to see if I should be insulted or not;

Seems to me like collectivist is a good thing to be, and anyone who will argue that it isnt, I will remind them about their religion, like I did my (christian)libertarian friend;

"..Thanks anyways for your lesson in Constitutional Law, but I have been a paralegal for almost 20 years specializing in Constitutional Law. Of course you are right, I'll give you no argument there. The feds IN EVERY DEPARTMENT have gotten WAAAAY too big for their britches and in so many ways...trampling our constitutional rights is only one of them.
As for your seemingly disparging attitude regarding collectivism,...I am wondering what you have against it? Is not human-kind all living on this earth together a sort of collectivisim? Are we not social animals? Do we not live "collectively" in communities around the world togther? I hear you are a christian man. If that is so, do you not feel like all men are brothers? Do you not feel like we are all one big family and have a duty to look out for eachother? After all, it is said we are all derived from the same parents, Adam and whats er name,... eh? See what I mean? Dont be a hypocryte. You cant be against collectivism but "for" the christian ideals of peace, love and brotherhood, and taking care of eachother the best we can. Finito ..."

Athiest v. Christian: a Supposed to be Intelligent Debate

I have only one objection to the debator here on the christian side, and that is his wrong assumption that athiest are amoral in that he believes that athiest believe that there is no right or wrong, and nothing could be farther from the truth. Listen how he keeps bringing up that argument as he attemtps to paint the athiest camp as ok with such things as rape and child-molestation! He also equates athiesm with individual selfishness, if "taking care of only ones self and needs" is part of their philosophy or creed, when this also simply is not true. Many athiests are Humanist that actually care about the well being of others, their neighbors, communities, and of all their fellow human beings all over the world. I just dont know where this so-called intelligent man could get off making these assumptions and generalizations and saying things like me it is assinie and I am thinking perhaps a deliberate ploy to make the athiest look bad in the eyes of the believers in the crowd? I mean, he cant really believe that stuff, now can he? Is he really that stupid and/or he must think we (the people) are.
