"Woman Riding a Tractor"
Oil on Canvas - 1961
Laurence Stephen Lowry
I am moreover a Luddite, in what I take to be the true and appropriate sense. I am not “against technology” so much as I am for community. When the choice is between the health of a community and technological innovation, I choose the health of the community. I would unhesitatingly destroy a machine before I would allow the machine to destroy my community.
—Wendell Berry, The Art of the Commonplace
