Unit 1 Assignment 1 – Jamie Aciukewicz

Group B

Question: By thinking about people as a group, is individual identity inherently lost?

Agree: Humans make assumptions about groups of people, regardless if it is true about the entire unit. This, in turn, leads to the dehumanization of the individuals as they are part of the larger group and thus, they “must” share the same characteristics as the other members.

Disagree: There is, in fact, individuality in a group, but depending on which side of the group you are placed, it is difficult to realize the differences. When in the group, it is much easier to see the uniqueness of each person, while outside of the group it is very hard to not see the unit as a single entity.
