Ayn Rand wrote a book called "Anthem". This was the collective ideal. This is the summary of the book:
Anthem is written as the diary of Equality 7-2521, a young man living in a future in which people have lost all knowledge of individualism, to the point of not even knowing words like "I" or "mine." Everyone lives and works in collective groups, with all aspects of daily life dictated by "councils" -- the Council of Vocations, the Council of Scholars, etc. His curiosity leads him to forbidden discoveries and eventually to exile, where he makes the greatest discovery of all.
Look at what the United Nations and the recent 4 administrations have espoused for those that have in favor of the so called have-nots (mostly lazy) of the world.
