Marx and the Dissolution of the Individual

Here are two quotes:

"Society does not consist of individuals, but expresses the sum of interrelations, the relations within which these individuals stand." Karl Marx, Grundrisse, 1858

"If you've got a business, you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen."  Current President 2012

Does one see some similarity? As we have argued the Individual and their ability to perform goes to the heart of any entrepreneurial culture, and its destruction will lead inevitably to that culture's destruction.
