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.

A Rising Tide Only Lifts All Boats When Everyone Has a Boat.

President John F. Kennedy once said about economic development that “a rising tide lifts all boats.” Kennedy was, of course, right, but he missed something really, really important: A rising tide lifts only lifts all boats when everyone has a boat.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"With the ever-growing influence of corporate CEOs and their right-wing allies in all aspects of American life, Hartmann’s work is more relevant than ever. Throughout his career, Hartmann has spoken compellingly about the value of people-centered democracy and the challenges that millions of ordinary Americans face today as a result of a dogma dedicated to putting profit above all else. This collection is a rousing call for Americans to work together and put people first again."
Richard Trumka, President, AFL-CIO
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."

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."
