According to Eckersley (2005), “[the result of individualism is] out of regard for privacy—our own and others’—we may fail to seek support when we need it, or hesitate to offer it to others when we should (p.254).” This is to say that individualism had been embedded to our mind, thinking that assisting others is unnecessary and receiving help is a shame. As a result, discouragement on collaborations will probably reduce the working efficiency, especially when facing some serious difficulties. Therefore, social apathy blocks the communications between labors, and result in drastically decreased in contributions to the company and
It speaks to the confusion surrounding the “lack”, in Lacanian terms (Barker, 98), of the ability to communicate effectively. ‘Dead’ in this context can be taken to mean “[lacking] life” (New Oxford American) in relation to the individual being unable to understand what another is trying to communicate.

The current crisis of the suburbs of Banlieue are an example of the failure of multiculturalism as there is no obligation for equality between migrants and the remaining people of the society. ‘The use of the terms “Muslim” and “immigrant” as labels for French citizens of North African origin is not, however, accidental.
