Wendell Berry's poem "Questionnaire" has haunted me for years. This recording of reading it stopped me in my tracks. So powerful (and only 1:38min long). "Name, please, the children whom you would be willing to kill."
"QUESTIONNAIRE 1. How much poison are you willing to eat for the success of the free market and global trade? … 5. State briefly the ideas, ideals, or hopes… for which you would kill a child. Name, please, the children whom you would be willing to kill."
A prescient masterwork of resistance, written by the great Wendell Berry a decade ago and almost unbearably timely today, read by to the score of a cricket symphony in the summer night
"State briefly the ideas, ideals, or hopes, the energy sources, the kinds of security, for which you would kill a child. Name, please, the children whom you would be willing to kill." reads Wendell Berry's prescient masterwork of resistance
