Collectivism is a broad label for any ideology maintaining that society or some other group of people should matter more to an individual than his or her own self. This can also mean a sacrifice of the individual to an ideology.
In economics, collectivism refers more specifically to mandated State or collective control of industrial and commercial concerns. This is often desired to further the goals of the former sort of collectivism.
These sorts of ideologies are most stridently opposed by individualists on those grounds, although different groups of collectivists are often at each other's throats as well over what group is more important than the individual.
 Examples of collectivist ideologies
|Socialism, communism||Working class|
|Objectivism||The Ayn Rand Collective|
|Identity politics||The given identity group|
|Ideology of any cult||The cult|
