Quote of the Week: Andrew Nelson Lytle, “I’ll Take My Stand”

Andrew Nelson LytleIf an abundance of those things which a people considers the goods and the riches of the earth defines wealth, then it follows that that particular culture is wealthy in proportion to the production and distribution of just those things and no others; and it does not depend upon what another people may consider the goods and riches, no matter how greatly those things have multiplied for them, nor how many individuals they have to possess them. What industrialism counts as the goods and riches of the earth the agrarian South does not, nor ever will.

▪ Andrew Nelson Lytle, “The Hind Tit” I’ll Take My Stand (Harper and Brothers, 1930; Louisiana State University Press, 2006) extract from pages 207 through to 208.
