Today’s delayed Erich Fromm quote will be the last input on Mindanao Advice for a while, but I hope that our little collection of articles will still be read. My husband and I need a little time to rethink our concept here, and if you have any idea, just let me know.
“Modern man has transformed himself into a commodity; he experiences his life energy as an investment with which he should make the highest profit, considering his position and the situation on the personality market. He is alienated from himself, from his fellow men and from nature. His main aim is profitable exchange of his skills, knowledge, and of himself, his “personality package” with others who are equally intent on a fair and profitable exchange. Life has no goal except the one to move, no principle except the one of fair exchange, no satisfaction except the one to consume.” – Erich Fromm
