Notes importance"Problems arise in groups when the personal touch goes out. When groups become so large that they are mechanical rather than personal the human being and his needs become secondary. Under such circumstances people are likely to feel frustrated, unwanted, and unimportant. They see no way to take hold, to be a real part of the group. They strike out and fight back against a system which does violence to their deep need to be important." (p. 139)
