In Wendell Berrys Life is a Miracle the idea that major changes need to be made within society is argued for with examples of ignorance and propriety For us to understand what for Wendell Berry is arguing we must first understand the definitions of both ignorance and propriety Ignorance is pretending to have knowledge where we do not and propriety is conforming in action and speech to what is socially acceptable When responding to Berry we must look inwards give our interpretations of his beliefs and understand the way they mesh together Ignorant is a great word for the state of modern science What better a word exists for summarizing contemporary sciences habit of drunkenly preaching just to stroke the media Is there no better word for societys willingness to accept every theory that is spewed from the mouth of anyone with a PHD as fact solely because after sufficient stroking the media ejaculates indigo onto paper to christen it so There is only one word as or more fitting propriety Our societies current idea of propriety names individuals as the blind and some sick psuedo-marriage of science and the media is the one-eyed man We all know that in the land of the blind the one-eyed man is king This is a problem by itself but even worse is the fact that this king programs us from the beginning to just smile for the cameras and nod for the scientists as they fornicate with TV and the internet to get their next grant However time makes some pictures become so sharp that even the blind can make out a vague image It takes just one frame even a scratched and blurry one to make us aware that something isnt right So how does society deal with this We go and ask the scientists for shiny new technology and better theories and then beg the media for better coverage
