I strongly recommend reading Wendell Berry. Two books in and I am hooked.
Both titles provide jaw-dropping perspective on one of the greatest perils facing society today (what we are doing to our world to produce food that in all honestly is quite poisonous) as well as suggestions for a new attitude about where we ought to return to as communities of human beings.
To be able to move with my family onto a small self-sufficient farm would be a dream come true. I do not necessarily need more money or goods. I need more meaning and purpose. I doubt that I am the only one feeling a disconnect I fall just short of being able to put into words.
Returning to a lifestyle of hard but meaningful and fulfilling work seems like a proper remedy if you ask me.
