National needs received special emphasis, including administrative research of use to planning, studies of unemployment, youth problems, and delinquency. Becker, Solomon explains, called the fear of death the “main spring of human activity.” Nonetheless we don’t want to face death directly, Solomon adds, and so, “Just like most of us are unaware of the internal dynamics of the engine that drives our car, we are equally unaware of what it is that impels us to do what we do every day.” Various experiments bear that out.
