I got some good e-mails (and a couple of blog comments) about Saturday’s Wendell Berry post . It got me thinking. At the college where I teach there are a lot of Wendell Berry fans. I am a member of a group of faculty who are trying to invite him to campus to speak. Most of the students who read Berry at my college tend to lean liberal (or at least that is what they like to call themselves). They are committed to the environment, peace, and simple-living. I do not think many of these students realize that many of Berry’s ideas could also be considered “conservative.” In fact, I have yet to run into a conservative student at Messiah College who reads Berry, although I am sure there a few out there.
So here is a post for all of you Berry fans out there:
Is Wendell Berry a conservative or a liberal?
