This conversation between novelist, poet & farmer Wendell Berry (The Unsettling of America) and author Eric Schlosser (Fast Food Nation) is worth viewing in its entirety.
Our focus, notes Berry, must be on far more than fear, guilt and anger over climate change. We must develop strategies built on love.
“We need a broad-fronted economic movement to protect everything that’s worth protecting, to stop damage to everything that’s worth keeping,” said Berry.
“We’ve been talked out of love, mercy, kindness. We’ve got to take those things back.”
Instead of using fear and guilt as motivators, “We all need to find things we love to do, and do them.”
Author, poet, writer and farmer Wendell Berry, in a public conversation with journalist Eric Schlosser, discusses his influences as a writer, his influences as a spiritual person, his connection to Kentucky, the land and more. He begins the conversation with Schlosser by talking about a term he’s coined—industrial fundamentalism—and continues to talk about the agrarian way of life and how to proceed in this new political era.
