When a person falls fortune to meet "his half" and the gift of love, he does not need to search for new partners, and laid out entirely in one true love, "their half."

Fromm found "remarkable kinship ideas of Buddha, Eckhart, Marx and Schweitzer."

According to Fromm, the society should be such that the people in it has been associated with human love, the bonds of brotherhood and solidarity, rather than blood and dirt, so, "which enables him to overcome his nature through creativity, not by destruction, where everyone feels their own "I", seeing himself as the subject of its own forces, not subordination, in which the system orientation and commitment exist without coercion to the destruction of human reality and the worship of idols.
