Individualism and Community

As a principled supporter of individual rights, I am frequently accused of not caring about "society" or "community." As this clip points out, I think that people who put community before the individual are getting it backwards. Without putting the lives and rights of autonomous individuals first, there is no community, just gang warfare.

well society is just a group of individuals and so is a community. The question is weather the society or community has priority over the individual. The answer is no they don't and shouldn't
