Writer and Farmer Wendell Berry on Hope, Direct Action, and the "Resettling" of the American Countryside

Wendell Berry on His Hopes for Humanity from BillMoyers.com on Vimeo.

Wendell Berry, a quiet and humble man, has become an outspoken advocate for revolution. He urges immediate action as he mourns how America has turned its back on the land and rejected Jeffersonian principles of respect for the environment and sustainable agriculture. Berry warns, "People who own the world outright for profit will have to be stopped; by influence, by power, by us."
