Regard for the Soil

Today's Maurin

Andrew Nelson Lytle says: The escape from industrialism is not in socialism or in sovietism.

The answer lies in a return to a society where agriculture is practised by most of the people.

It is in fact impossible for any culture to be sound and healthy without a proper regard for the soil, no matter how many urban dwellers think that their food comes from groceries and delicatessens or their milk from tin cans.

This ignorance does not release them from a final dependence upon the farm.
