While I voted yes, I am going on instinct here, and possibly a hope and prayer.

Massive fresh water aquifers being bought up (all over the globe), oil catastrophes (as Gulf of Mexico) poisoning our Oceans/food supply, power crazed sociopaths intentionally run worlds economic system into ground ( to impoverish all but 1%). Fukushima looming, fracking poisoning, purchasing of bio-organisms and Democracy, gmo manipulation of food supply, seed banks buried deep into earth, drug induced zombie psychology controlling % of population, capitalism raping very essence of humanity, police state, corp., gov., & citizen centrepol, bunkers 10+ stories deep into earth, social progs of food, healthcare and housing (sustaining human life) being systematically demolished, ...there is intent here, clearly all this (and more) does not propagate "Life, Liberty or the Pursuit of Happiness" ... to put it mildly.

If it is not Fukushima Reactor 4 alone that triggers a global catastrophe, obviously there are a myriad of catastrophic elements breaking, just as the dawn.

This is not the 60's... "We're not in Kansas anymore"

oh, you know, now that we are no longer a democracy…I guess an initially defective nuclear reactor going hyper ballistic and ejecting a radio-active cloud into the atmosphere that rivals an asteroid impact only to leave a crater where southern Japan and a sizeable chunk of the ocean used to be…is just something we are going to have to get used to. Long live GE.

The Post-Citizens United Era.

This month marks five years since the United States Supreme Court made their infamous ruling in the case of Citizens United v. FEC. That ruling turned a century of legal precedent on its head with the declaration that corporations have a First Amendment right to spend money in elections. And, that ruling opened the floodgates to massive spending levels in our political process.

From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Hartmann combines a remarkable piece of historical research with a brilliant literary style to tell the grand story of corporate corruption and its consequences for society with the force and readability of a great novel."
David C. Korten, author of When Corporations Rule the World and Agenda for A New Economy
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"In an age rife with media-inspired confusion and political cowardice, we yearn for a decent, caring, deeply human soul whose grasp of the problems confronting us provides a light by which we can make our way through the quagmire of lies, distortions, pandering, and hollow self-puffery that strips the American Dream of its promise. How lucky we are, then, to have access to the wit, wisdom, and willingness of Thom Hartmann, who shares with us here that very light, grown out of his own life experience."
Mike Farrell, actor, political activist, and author of Just Call Me Mike and Of Mule and Man
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."
