Overemphasis on individual rights

Nature:
The emphasis on the rights of the individual in the modern industrial era has generated a folklore in which care for the individual is often at the expense of the individual's obligations towards the wider context.
Incidence:
For example, large labour unions act to maintain the unemployment, sickness and retirement benefits of their members at levels that cannot be guaranteed by current and future production earnings.
