    lovely country, great people!  I think what you mean is "individuality".  Individualism is the theory that the self is the primary social unit, which for politics means that the public good exists solely to oppress the individual.  This is the opinion held by conservatives here, and is clearly wrong.  Individuality simply refers to the preservation of traits unique to a singular person, a notion that is relatively benign.
