The NLP toolbox was a great contribution to my therapeutic work. As you know, a trance state is not necessary to achieve results. I just called it 'visualization.' Now most 'treatment' is chemical because one can prescribe in ten minutes. Thanks private insurance!!

THOM'S USUAL ELOQUENCE. I had always admired Thom's broad grasp of history, but his overview of the Adams/Jefferson/Calvin philosophies and how they reflect Republican/Progressive differences today was mind-blowing. Thom is a master teacher of our times, a truly illuminating person. I was equally fascinated with his previous discussion about the history of hypnotherapy. As a psych major and lifelong student of the works of Carl Jung, I had not heard this story about the cultural impact of the novel Trilby before. It explains a great deal. I have an expanding list of people with whom I would like to have dinner in this lifetime, and Thom stays up in the top five. That will be a conversation well worth waiting for. Antoniafelix.com

Who Should an Economy Serve?

The top one percent own half of all the world's assets. In stark contrast, the bottom fifty percent of the world owns less than one percent. According to the 2014 Global Wealth Report from Credit Suisse, global inequality has surged since the 2008 financial collapse. The report explains that while global wealth has more than doubled since the year 2000, the vast majority of overall growth has gone to those who were already wealthy.

From Screwed:
"If we are going to live in a Democracy, we need to have a healthy middle class. Thom Hartmann shows us how the ‘cons’ have wronged this country, and tells us what needs to be done to reclaim what it is to be American."
Eric Utne, Founder, Utne magazine
From Cracking the Code:
"In Cracking the Code, Thom Hartmann, America’s most popular, informed, and articulate progressive talk show host and political analyst, tells us what makes humans vulnerable to unscrupulous propagandists and what we can do about it. It is essential reading for all Americans who are fed up with right-wing extremists manipulating our minds and politics to promote agendas contrary to our core values and interests."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning: From Empire to Earth Community and When Corporations Rule the World and board chair of YES! magazine
From Screwed:
"I think many of us recognize that for all but the wealthiest, life in America is getting increasingly hard. Screwed explores why, showing how this is no accidental process, but rather the product of conscious political choices, choices we can change with enough courage and commitment. Like all of Thom’s great work, it helps show us the way forward."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen and The Impossible Will Take a Little While
