I don't view this as me "teaching" people the right way to think. I'm not that fucking arrogant. It's more like me putting my own beliefs to the test and making them make sense with other people's realities. There's a push and pull that happens. Maybe that's the dialectic they talk about.

I think it's crucial to take your beliefs to real people. Don't hide them. If you have confidence in them, bring them out in the light of day.

one thing I like about The Dispossessed is it envisions an anarcho-communist society where even the language has changed after the revolution. The phrasing for "my computer" for example, doesn't exist. You say "the computer I use." Children are taught from a young age that if you can't share something, you can't use something.

here's another big mood from Wendell Berry for

A WARNING TO MY READERS
Do not think me gentle
because I speak in praise
of gentleness, or elegant
because I honor the grace
that keeps this world. I am
a man crude as any,
gross of speech, intolerant,
stubborn, angry, full of
fits and furies. That I
may have spoken well
at times, is not natural.
A wonder is what it is.
