We've had 30 years of trickle down economics and a belief system that the super rich are the "job creators" and everything to do with the government is bad. Now we have our elections being bought out from under us by a few billionaires and a supreme court that believe money is speech and corporations are living, breathing people. Divide and conquer, it's exactly what they've done and they're laughing all the way to their tax sheltered banks (swiss or cayman) Feels pretty hopeless for those of us struggling to make ends meet.

With regard to the question of neo-feudalism....there's something about the notion of a feudalistic society with 4-G networking that just doesn't fit the bill. But the ideas being fed to us: go get-'em attitude about war for Iranian oil, meainlingless drivel on television, like teen pregancy, prisoners getting 15 minutes of fame, and man stuff's his face, corporate advertising overkill and with drones and all sorts of other spying technologies...we may be closer to a very bizarre 1984 or something.

Why the Web of Life is Dying...

Could you survive with just half of your organs? Think about it. What if you had just half your brain, one kidney, half of your heart, one lung, half a liver and only half of your skin? It would be pretty hard to survive right? Sure, you could survive losing just one kidney or half of your liver, but at some point, losing pieces from all of your organs would be too much and you would die.

From Cracking the Code:
"No one communicates more thoughtfully or effectively on the radio airwaves than Thom Hartmann. He gets inside the arguments and helps people to think them through—to understand how to respond when they’re talking about public issues with coworkers, neighbors, and friends. This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen
From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Beneath the success and rise of American enterprise is an untold history that is antithetical to every value Americans hold dear. This is a seminal work, a godsend really, a clear message to every citizen about the need to reform our country, laws, and companies."
Paul Hawken, coauthor of Natural Capitalism and author of The Ecology of Commerce
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a creative thinker and committed small-d democrat. He has dealt with a wide range of topics throughout his life, and this book provides an excellent cross section. The Thom Hartmann Reader will make people both angry and motivated to act."
Dean Baker, economist and author of Plunder and Blunder, False Profits, and Taking Economics Seriously
