A Program for Peace in an Industrial Age

George P. Ellis

In an attempt to work out a solution to the problems facing the world
today, it might be well to study the basic causes underlying the
difficulties to which we have been subjected in the past. The problems
facing the world include the badly unbalanced economic and social
order, and the problem of world peace. Perhaps these are but two
parts of the same problem. An attempt will be made to analyze some
of the causes underlying the difficulty.

Professor Elton Mayo of Harvard University in his book “The Social
Problems of an Industrial Civilization” says, “In the primitive
community, or in the American and European communities of a
century or more ago, group codes determined the social order of
things and the direction of individuals’ lives, the interests of the
individual were subordinated, by his eager desire developed in infancy,
to the interests of the group; and in return the group gave him
stability, an assured function, and opportunity for satisfying
participation. It was an established society. By way of contrast, the
typical industrial community of today is an adaptive society comprised
of individuals of varied origin, many of them moving several times
from one group association to another in the quest of education and
jobs. Difficulties of relating themselves to others and subsequent
solitariness and unhappiness characterize many of these people. Many
come to a fundamental assumption that the world is hostile; some
react by over-aggressiveness, others tread too carefully; and
groupings frequently form in an attitude of wariness or hostility to
other groups. Social skill (that is our ability to secure cooperation
between people) has disappeared

. The established society by its
apprenticeship system developed technical and social skills
simultaneously in the individual; but in the adaptive society there has
been an unbalance between the development of technical and of social
skills. The consequences for society have been disastrous. If our social
skills had advanced step by step with our technical skills, there would
not have been another European war”.

If these statements are true, an attempt should be made to learn
something about the social skills that will help mankind better to
cooperate in their economic activities and thus to develop a social
organization which will be based on understanding and the recognition
of the rights of all other members of society.
Professor Mayo goes on further to say, “Until such time as sociology
and psychology can, out of lowly and pedestrian skills, develop the
beginning of understanding, we shall continue to find technical
advance provocative of social chaos and anarchy. It is not the atomic
bomb that will destroy civilization. But, civilized society can destroy
itself, finally–no doubt, with bombs–if it fails to understand
intelligently and to control the aids and deterrents to cooperation”.
