They are divergent problems and have not solution in the ordinary sense of the word. They demand of man not merely the employment of his reasoning powers but the commitment of his whole personality.All social and political problems are interwoven that energy, for example, affects economics, which in turn affects health, which in turn affects education, work family life, and a thousand other things.
