Erich Fromm:

“Only if man masters society and subordinates the economic machine to the purposes of human happiness, and only if he actively participates in the social process, can he overcome what now drives him into despair–his aloneness and his feeling of powerlessness”

Fromm, Erich. 1941. Escape from Freedom. New York : Rinehart (p. 276)
