The Way of Ignorance

“But it ought to be obvious to every sane person in both parties, in both the blue states and the red ones, that opposition to evolution, abortion, and homosexual marriage does not constitute an adequate religion. It does not constitute even an adequate set of “values.”

The great moral issue of our time, too much ignored by both sides of our present political division, is violence. From the colonialism that began with long-distance navigation to the present stage of industrialism, we of the so-called West have lived and gathered wealth increasingly by violence.” Wendell Berry, The Way of Ignorance, Letter to Daniel Kemmis
