A writer-editor-teacher’s quote of the week #59

“And the real values [the Agrarians] were asserting in 1930 were not those of ‘material well-being’ or of neo-Confederate nostalgia, but of thoughtful men who were very much concerned with the erosion of the quality of individual life by the forces of industrialization and the uncritical worship of material progress as an end in itself.”

– from Louis D. Rubin, Jr.’s preface to the 1977 third edition of I’ll Take My Stand by Twelve Southerners
