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.

The world we're leaving for today's teens...

Without immediate global action on climate change, today's teenagers will be forced to live with the consequences of our inaction. The World Bank has issued their third report of climate change, and it says that global temperatures could rise by as much as 4 degrees Celsius by the time today's teens hit their 80th birthday.

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 Screwed:
"Thom Hartmann’s book explains in simple language and with concrete research the details of the Neo-con’s war against the American middle class. It proves what many have intuited and serves to remind us that without a healthy, employed, and vital middle class, America is no more than the richest Third World country on the planet."
Peter Coyote, Actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Right through the worst of the Bush years and into the present, Thom Hartmann has been one of the very few voices constantly willing to tell the truth. Rank him up there with Jon Stewart, Bill Moyers, and Paul Krugman for having the sheer persistent courage of his convictions."
Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth
