Things I have been reading lately, V

March 25, 2011

From Appetite for Change by Warren Belasco (as an aside, I think Warren Belasco is totally awesome and everyone should read him – but not by requesting his books from SOAS library, please, because those are MINE!), quoting Gurney Norman reviewing for The Whole Earth Catalog:

‘It has occurred to me that if I were a dictator determined to control the national press, Organic Gardening would be the first publication I’d squash, because it’s the most subversive. I believe that organic gardeners are in the forefront of a serious effort to save the world by changing man’s [sic] orientation to it, to move away from the collective, centrist, superindustrial state, toward a simpler, realer one-to-one relationship with the earth itself.’
