“[The] solution did not, like the typical industrial solution,
involve the making of a problem, or a series of problems, elsewhere.
It involved the making of a solution elsewhere:
the same work that improved the road improved the fields.” -- Wendell Berry, 1990. "What are people for?" North Point Press, New York: p.121.
