The Unsettling of America by Wendell Berry

People who set their lives against destruction have necessarily confronted in themselves the absurdity that they have recognized in their society. They have seen the governments that exploit and oppress the people they are sworn to serve and protect, medical procedures that produce ill health, schools that preserve ignorance, and methods of transportation that create more distance than they bridge.
This realization has become the typical moral crisis of our time. Once our personal connection to what is wrong becomes clear, then we have to choose: we can go on as before, recognizing our dishonesty and living with it the best we can, or we can begin the effort to change the way we think and live....
