Why the Disciplines of Love Are Not Idealistic

What "sea monsters" (pressures, temptations, opposing forces) seem to be chasing after you these days?...(Serendipity Bible Fourth Edition, page 982).

I bristle when people say that to speak of love is idealistic.  This is a totally purblind position. Look at the family unit for starters. Take love away from any family unit and see how practically it operates. I tell you it will crumble in disarray. The same goes for society. In the midst of cruelty and alienation, creativity and innovation will not flourish.  The nation will not flower. It will fragment and decay. Dare we speak of economics as if it were the solution to every problem? Dare we neglect the fact that nurture imposes strict disciplines, demands, and requisites upon families and nations only some of which are economic?
