Wendell Berry reflects on community …

“We hear again the voices out of our cultural tradition telling us that to have community, people don’t need a community center or recreational facilities or any of the rest of the paraphernalia of community improvement that is always for sale. Instead, they need to love each other, trust each other, and help each other. That is hard. All of us know that no community is going to do these things easily or perfectly, and yet we know there is more hope in that difficulty and imperfection than in all the neat instructions for getting big and getting rich that have come out of the universities and agribusiness corporations in the past fifty years.”

– Wendell Berry, Home Economics
