I confess I knew nothing about John Birch, the man, until this post inspired me to check him out. I must say that his 'War Weary Farmer" strikes a powerful note in this here city boy.

Especially the opening, and most especially the bolded, lines:


"I should like to find the existence of what my father called 'Plain living and high thinking.'

"I want some fields and hills, woodlands and streams I can call my own. I want to spend my strength in making fields green, and the cattle fat, so that I may give sustenance to my loved ones, and aid to those neighbors who suffer misfortune; I do not want a life of monotonous paper-shuffling or of trafficking with money-mad traders."



Quite literally the virtue of magnanimity.
