A propósito dos rápidos procesos de industrialización e/o crecemento urbano

A propósito dos rápidos procesos de industrialización e/o crecemento urbano:

“Si el estudio a que usted se dedica tiende a debilitar sus afectos y a destruir su inclinación hacia los placeres sencillos en los que no puede mezclarse adulteración alguna, entonces ese estudio es inmoral e inconveniente para el intelecto humano. Si siempre se observara esta norma, si ningún ser humano permitiese que ambición alguna se interpusiera en la tranquilidad de sus afectos familiares, Grecia no hubiese sido esclavizada, César habría conservado su país, América sería descubierta más gradualmente y los imperios de México el Perú no habrían sido aniquilados” (Mary Shelley, Frankenstein)
