Quote of the day – Wendell Berry on government


This quote by Wendell Berry seems to sum up the feelings of most Americans right now.

I wish to testify that in my best moments I am not aware of the existence of the government. Though I respect and feel myself dignified by the principles of the Declaration and the Constitution, I do not remember a day when the thought of the government made me happy, and I never think of it without the wish that it might become wiser and truer and smaller than it is.
