Can any change on a structural level work, or even legitimately happen, if we do not change on an individual level? We are a consumerist society because we, as individuals, have bought into the consumer mentality. To change the world, we must begin at home. This is the message of Berry, and it seems to me, this is the message of Christ. To change the structure, without changing the individuals, is in the best cases merely going to treat the symptoms of the problem rather than the cause of the problem.
