Excerpt from Recent Trends in Rural Planning<br><br>Fortunately, neither the doctrine Of laissez faire nor the belief in social statics is in good standing at the present time. These have given way before the attack of the more dynamic and more productive theory of social telesis, which holds that the social and institutional life of a community, county, state, or nation may be purposely planned or directed in order to achieve certain predetermined ends or objectives.
