A National Security Policy

Print
Written by Wendell Berry

At the very least, a nation should be able to sustainably to feed, clothe, and shelter its citizens, using its own sources and by its own work. 

    And of course, that requires a nation to be, in the truest sense, patriotic:  Its citizens must love their land with a knowing, intelligent, sustaining, and protective love.  They must not, for any price, destroy its beauty, its health, or its productivity.  And they must not allow their patriotism to be degraded to a mere loyalty to symbols or any set of officials. 

Wendell Berry, Citizens Dissent, p. 15
