John de Graaf not only has provided powerful analyses of the ills that plague contemporary societies and their citizens, but has been a prophet for a better, grander vision of what it means to be human. He has been a persistent champion of human happiness—a happiness founded on genuine human relationships rather than the idols of consumer culture.
