This process is but one side of a more complex equation: As the social
and family life of the community is weakened, new branches of production
are brought into being to fill the resulting gap; and as new services and
commodities provide substitutes for human relations in the form of market
relations, social and family life are further weakened. Thus is a
process that involves economic and social changes on the one side, and
profound changes in psychological and affective patterns on the other (192).
