Deneen on Monoculture

I read this post when it was orginially posted on Patrick Deneen’s blog a while back, and thought it was incredible.  Since he’s reposting it on FPR I thought I would throw a link up here.

Wendell Berry talked quite a bit about this in his amazing book, The Unsettling of America.  Diversity in a system makes for health and stability, where monoculture is generally unhealthy and instable.  I recommend reading both the Deneen post, and adding The Unsetting of America to your reading list as well.
