Blog Watch: Wendell Berry on work

More reflection on WB's UK decision

When asked if he had "any hope that mountaintop removal mining will stop before all the mountains are gone," Berry said: "Of course I hope it will stop ... and I have publicly stated my willingness to do what's necessary to stop it (including) doing nonviolent resistance."

 

After remarking that there wasn't much room to be optimistic that this would happen, Berry says something quite profound and important: "I don't think a person has a right to protest or work for change on the assumption that the effort will be effective. This is whether it's right or not."
