In today's (7/6/11) interview with Don Siegelman, I believe Thom was correct in suppressing the term TREASON because it over-emphasizes the intent--although the argument can certainly be made--of what has taken place in our country.TREASON is a deliberate over-throw of our constitution and our government. I have groped for some time with what term we should use to properly characterize this subversive intent that those who wish to effect as an extreme re-structuring of our society for personnel benefit is... and I believe that term--which became abundantly clear to me today--is, SEDITION. Sedition is any act, writing, speech, etc., directed unlawfully against state authority, the government, or constitution, or calculated to bring it into contempt or to incite others to hostility, ill will or disaffection; it does not amount to treason and therefore is not a capital offense. The other term I would apply to our present circumstance, which has been willfully perpetrated on "WE THE PEOPLE", would be the term PERDITION. Perdition is the state of final ruin; loss of the soul, DAMNATION; the future state of the wicked. This would aptly describe where we are headed if we do not steer a different course for ourselves.

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:
"Never one to shy away from the truth, Thom Hartmann’s collected works are inspiring, wise, and compelling. His work lights the way to a better America."
Van Jones, cofounder of RebuildTheDream.com and author of The Green Collar Economy
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."
