Isn't Marx's individualism dialectical?  Capitalism snuffs out
individualism.  Unions will ultimately fail, forcing the workers to see
themselves as a class.

After socialism, workers and  everybody else will be able to explore their
individuality within the context of socially responsible behavior?
