U.S. Politics and Culture

A Quote from Hillbilly Elegy, A Memoir by J.D. Vance

“We talk about the value of hard work but tell ourselves that the reason we’re not working is some perceived unfairness: Obama shut down the coal mines, or all the jobs went to the Chinese. These are the lies we tell ourselves to solve the cognitive dissonance—the broken connection between the world we see and the values we preach.”
― J.D. Vance, Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis
