Snippet from longer October 2013 interview of author Wendell Berry by Bill Moyers. Poet and writer Wendell Barry, called the "prophet of responsibility by Bill McKibben," and a "passionate advocate for the Earth by Bill Moyers, addresses leadership this way:
"Leadership from the bottom, and I 'm convinced perfectly that it's happening and that leadership consists of people who simply see something that needs to be done and they start doing it. We don't have the right to ask whether we are going to succeed or not, the only question we have a right to ask is, "What's the Right Thing to do?"
Wendell Berry, one of America's most influential writers, reads one of his most revered poems "A Poem on Hope" for Moyers & Company.
