Economic philosophers, whose genius is admonitory rather
than analytical, have found a peculiar satisfaction in the contemplation
of "rural industries." They have generally approached
the subject from the sentimental or cultural point of
view, which is attracted by decentralised organisation and small
units as a means of "uplift" in character, in the fullness and
happiness of life, and in democratic government. The attractiveness
of this method rests on an emotional repugnance to
certain features of industrial economy, which have indeed been
correctly observed but incorrectly interpreted.
