A brief note from Wendell Berry to George W. Bush

Wendell Berry in “Fidelity”, in “The Body and the Earth”, in The Agrarian Basis for an Authentic Culture, part III of The Art of the Commonplace: “It is impossible, for instance, to conceive that a man could despise women and yet love his wife, or love his own place in the world and yet deal destructively with other places.” [My emphasis. – NPO]
