The invention the world be better off

According to Wikipedia an invention is a new composition, device, or process. It is the product of a creative mind which is capable of creating something new out of the existing or totally new. The quality or the range of creativity, however, can have the difference of kind and degree.

Invention is a wide raging category. It has equally recognized both in the field of natural and social sciences. Invention, with respect to culture, is an interesting field of investigation, especially with reference to the rise individualism. As a set of social behavior individualism is an undesirable cultural invention. The world would be better off without it. It is the result of a process (a process further consolidating it) that is deeply rooted in the history of mankind. During the age of Renaissance the process quickened and with the advent of science and technology individualism became a menace. Therefore T.S Eliot wrote 'The Waste Land' and 'Hollow Men' and bitterly criticized the alarming situation of individualism as a dominating force disintegrating the whole society. Eliot as well as Ezra Pound portrayed the crowed of the individuals in the metropolises thus:

'A crowd flowed over London Bridge, so many,
I had not thought death had undone so many.' The Waste Land

'The apparition of these faces in the crowed Petals on a wet, black bough.' In a Station of the Metro

It has given birth to capitalism, to materialism and to unrestrained freedom. These three together promised us nothing but isolation in life. The individual is left to strive and peruse his wants and needs. Apparently it seems he rises, but in reality he sinks. He masters the skills of catching opportunities and availing chances, but ends up as a shadow of a tall tree. Thus, individualism gave birth to a race which has its pride but no identity.

This race is no more than a thing seen... a bright necklace round a black neck.
