Connection between liberalism and environmental devastation?

Society is there to serve the individual
That pretty much says it all, doesn't it?

Yes, it does.

Between the extremes of "society is there to serve the individual" and "the individual is there to serve the collective," there's the idea that society, the individual and everything else are there to maintain a type of order and ideal. I think that's where politics stops being kiddie social bullshit where we lie to each other, declare victory and go home.

Think about how schizoid parents are: you must instruct your kids in the ways of the world, knowing it's lies, and yet somehow guide them to live sanely some other way. It's a paranoid, fucked up worldview.
