a person can also be part of several groups thus not sacrificing his individuality but choosing which collectives/coalition to join and how to prioritize them.

for solo struggles in our large complex world are as futile and useless as a lone worker negotiating fair pay against a monolith

yes indeed. I do not fancy the group being it's own entity. but the people can speak with one voice calling themselves "the group".

ex: we the people, Metallica goes on tour, the democratic platform, etc.

Yes people can make the individual act to join a group. They are making the decision and acting to join the group.

well, you arent wrong, but individuals can also unite their will in groups. a team can make a decision, as can an army, a union, a political party, etc.

its still individuals making the decisions, but they work together and move as 1, giving strength to a common cause that may be impossible with disorganized individual effort.
