Dr. Erich Fromm, speaking at the 43d meeting of the American Orthopsychiatric Association in April 1966, said: “Theologians and philosophers have been saying for a century that God is dead, but what we confront now is the possibility that man is dead, transformed into a thing, a producer, a consumer, an idolator of other things …. A man sits in front of a bad television program and does not know that he is bored; he reads of Vietcong casualties in the newspaper and does not recall the teachings of religion; he learns the dangers of nuclear holocaust and does not feel fear; he joins the rat race of commerce where personal worth is measured in terms of market values, and is not aware of his anxiety,” (Pastoral Psychology, June 1966, p.57)
