INDIVIDUAL ENTERPRISE AND INITIATIVE

A correct understanding and application of the Golden Rule and the true conception of the brotherhood of man will eventually be expressed in a right social state and will show forth a type of government that patterns the divine. The basic facts of metaphysics as taught in Christian Science are in line with this hope and aspiration, because they declare that in the infinity of Mind there is equality of opportunity and infinite unfoldment for all of God's ideas. Collectively and individually, man is the reflection of immeasurable substance. It should be noted, too, that there are certain metaphysical facts in Christian Science with which some of the current philosophies of government and the ideologies of humanly planned economies do not coincide.

Particularly, Christian Science teaches true individualism. It declares that every idea of Mind has its eternal and ineradicable identity, and that while ideas are coactive and co-ordinate, they never lose their distinctness—their inherent character as individual expressions —or their ability to evidence divine initiative. This fact is opposed to any concept of collectivism, where individuality is lost in the mass.
