The cost of industrial agriculture
~Americanism as it used to be and can be so again~

Poet/farmer Wendell Berry
It's impossible for TV talking heads to even imagine this level of intelligence, let alone feature it and that's a huge part of the problem we face.

Of course everyone should be a mindless consumer...

Of course farming should be industrialized...

Of course college degrees are the only signs of intelligence...

Of course it doesn't matter what we do to the land as long as we make money today...

Of course everyone is better off living in rented (or mortgaged) homes going to working at enterprises they don't own and buying all their food from the supermarket...

With Wes Jackson of the Land Institute
