We identify arrogant ignorance by its willingness to work on too big a scale, and thus to put too much at risk.”
― Wendell Berry

I’ve been using a lot of Wendell Berry quotes lately. If the shoe fits…

Between these two programs — -the industrial and the agrarian, the global and the local — -the most critical difference is that of knowledge. The global economy institutionalizes a global ignorance, in which producers and consumers cannot know or care about one another, and in which the histories of all products will be lost. In such circumstances, the degradation of products and places, producers and consumers, is inevitable.
― Wendell Berry, The Art of the Commonplace: The Agrarian Essays
