The Unlike and the Like
NATURE cast all men in the same
general mould. To some she gave
black hair and olive skin; to others, red
hair and freckles. But irrespective of personal
peculiarities they must all breathe,
eat, and sleep.
Man's needs of food, shelter, and recreation
are fundamental to individuals as a
class. These needs are not concerned with
the color of his hair or the appearance of his
skin. Regardless of his personal characteristics,
considerations of food and shelter are
matters of common interest and necessity.
Society today is a complex organism.
The requirements of primitive man have
been supplemented in modern times many
fold. There is today a wide range and complexity
of human wants, but these wants'
are no less common to individuals and
Modern civilization has developed complex
means of, and organizations for,
supplying human wants. The organizations
vary in type. They have problems
peculiar to the means which they employ.
The end is invariably the same.
