How far Machinery Humiliates.  Machinery is impersonal; it robs the piece of work of its pride, of the individual merits and defects that cling to all work that is not machine made — in other words, of its bit of humanity.  Formerly, all buying from handicraftsmen meant a mark of distinction for their personalities, with whose productions people surrounded themselves.  Furniture and dress accordingly became the symbols of mutual valuation and personal connection.  Nowadays, on the other hand, we seem to live in the midst of anonymous and impersonal serfdom.  We must not buy the facilitation of labour too dear.
