The Root of the Problem is Private


“However destructive may be the policies of the government and the methods and products of the corporation, the root of the problem is always to be found in private life. We must learn to see that every problem that concerns us . . . always leads straight to the question of how we live. The world is being destroyed—no doubt about it—by the greed of the rich and powerful. It is also being destroyed by popular demand. There are not enough rich and powerful people to consume the whole world; for that, the rich and powerful need the help of countless ordinary people.”

Wendell Berry

  1. You know, I actually had written a whole post to keep the ‘tag’ game going, but when I saved it as a draft and then logged off, somehow it got lost, and wasn’t there when I returned. I’m afraid I’m too lazy to write it again . . . But I appreciate the ‘tag’, in any case!
