Family Ties – II

Mom and Pop stores. Mostly long gone. The big “box” stores and Walmart have driven them out of business and we – the consumer allowed it in the alure of lower prices, one stop shopping and our fast paced lives.

Here below is a favorite quote.

”Before the rise of modern industry… virtually the whole of humankind lived in family-centered economies. The family was the focus of the most productive activity, whether it be on largely self-sufficient farms or in small family shops… Husbands and wives relied on each other, needed each other, shared with each other, so their small family enterprises might succeed. They specialized in their daily tasks according to their respective skills. Marriage was still true to its historic definition: a union of the sexual and the economic.” —Allan C. Carlson, Ph.D.
