Young writes that Woolman and Blake, alive at the same time in the late 18th century, were both social prophets addressing the evils of the emerging industrial system, with its poverty, displacement, slavery, wealth, power, and consumerism. "The reason that passages of Blake and Woolman still bite to the bone is that what they foresaw has come true." She explains the challenge they bring to us of the nature of our social system, our responsibility in it, and the contradictions to our spiritual life.
