"It is true, as psychoanalysts
continually point out, that people do often have 'the increasing sense
of being moved by obscure forces within themselves which they are unable
to define.' But it is not true, as Ernest Jones asserted, that 'man's
chief enemy and danger is his own unruly nature and the dark forces pent
up within himself.' On the contrary: 'Man's chief danger' today
lies in the unruly forces of contemporary society itself, with its alienating
methods of production, its enveloping techniques of political domination,
its international anarchy--in a word, its pervasive transformations of
the very 'nature' of man and the conditions and aims of his life"
(The Sociological Imagination, 1959, p. 13).
