Jacques Barzun on Moving On

The purpose I gradually fashioned took the form of a resolve to fight the mechanical.
Where, then, is this enemy? Not where the machine gives relief from drudgery but where human judgment abdicates. Any ossified institution – almost every bureaucracy, public or private – manifests the mechanical. 
And I have mentioned before, more than once, Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor E. Frankl, psychological pioneer, concentration camp survivor, remains a touchstone for survival.
