The Social Structure

Society
must be organized
in such a way that
man’s social, loving nature
is not separated from his social existence, but becomes one with it.

If it is true,
as I have tried to show,
that love is the only sane and satisfactory answer
to the problem of human existence,
then any society which excludes,
relatively,
the development of love,
must in the long run perish
of its own contradiction with the basic necessities of human nature.
