Saturday's random thoughts- Wendell Berry

And so we will be wrong if we attempt to correct what we perceive as "environmental problems" without correcting the economic oversimplifications that caused them. This over-simplification is now either a matter of corporate behaviour or of behaviour under the influence of corporate behaviour. What is not sufficiently clear, perhaps to any of us, is the extent of our complicity as individuals, as especially as individual consumers, in the behaviour of corporations"
Wendell Berry, The Idea of a Local Economy.
