Quote 3.31.15

“Man’s brain lives in the 20th century; the heart of most men lives still in the Stone Age.  The majority of men have not yet acquired the maturity to be independent, to be rational, to be objective.  They need myths and idols to endure the fact that man is all by himself, that there is no authority which gives meaning to life except man himself. … modern man is still anxious and tempted to surrender his freedom to dictators of all kinds, or to lose it by transforming himself into a small cog in the machine, well fed, and well clothed, yet not a free man but an automaton.”

-Erich Fromm
