quote from harp's

Capitalists have hated the agrarian
household since the seventeenth century,
calling its members savages, outliers,
slackers and draggers, backward
and degenerate, and wasteful of land
and labor—at best curiosities, at worst
forest- or mountain-dwelling insurgents
without political allegiances or
ties to centralized authority. The agrarian
household so perplexed and infuriated
its critics because it seemed to
deny historical progress. It was not in
a process of becoming something else.
