It is often said that America is an evil nation for slavery but where do our sins exists? Do they exist within the collective identity of the "the nation" or do they lye with the identity of the individual himself? No one denies that when a person commits wrong they are culpable for that wrong but are those who chose otherwise equally culpable? Is one-hundred percent of the collective culpable even if one person chose otherwise? This means that the guiltless individual nullifies the sin of the collective since one person can remove the sin from the whole and place it back on the individual(s) who committed the original sin. This is also true for any sin, good deed, behavior, or characteristic that we attribute with the collective. This makes it impossible to assign any characteristic of personhood to the collective since the individual can shatter that collective person by their own unique personhood. The collective 'person' simply does not exist because it is impossible for every individual within the collective to have the same personality that a uniform collective needs in order to exists.
