As the United States prepares to leave its long war in Afghanistan,
it now must contemplate the necessity of sending troops back to
Iraq, recalling General Colin Powell's advice to President Bush: Â
If you break it, you own it," asthe world's hot spots threaten to
spread over the globe with the ferocity of a war of holy terror and
desperation.The planet's environmental problems respect no national
boundaries. From soil erosion and population displacement to
climate change and failed energy policies, American governing
classes are paid by corporations to pretend that debate is the only
democratic necessity and that solutions are capable of withstanding
endless delay. Late Capitalism goes about its business of finishing
off the planet. And we citizens are left with a shell of what was
once proudly described as The American Dream.In this new collection
of eleven essays, Berry confronts head-on the necessity of clear
thinking and direct action. Never one to ignore the present
challenge, he understands that only clearly stated questions
support the understanding their answers require. For more than
fifty years we've had no better spokesman and no more eloquent
advocate for the planet, for our families, and for the future of
our children and ourselves.
