Viktor Frankl On Achieving Man's Highest Potential
My wife tends to think that this argument is the argument that slashes at socialism as socialism takes man as he is. Capitalism embraces the potential of man as he can be, and by encouraging and seeking opportunities for man to increase, not simply to supply man with what he needs now.
Regardless if you view this video clip the same way, Frankl offers some very gospel centered assertions that in order for man to know of our greatest potential, we must see man, and in this case society, as it can be, not as it is now. Seek to obtain our highest potential, not simply seek to respond to our most basic needs.
