“Something is profoundly wrong with the way we live today. For thirty years we have made a virtue out of the pursuit of material self-interest: indeed, this very pursuit now constitutes whatever reamains of our sense of collective purpose.” So wrote Tony Judt in the introduction to Ill Fares the Land, “A Treatise on our present Discontents’.
Tony Judt died on 6 August 2010. We shall miss his voice and courage. But his example will support us on our journey.
