On the Contrary!
--- such nuanced conversations make great Radio! Call John back and continue that conversation or enter into a new subject zone.

There is Much Discussion Needed to Foment A Renaissance.
To Defeat the Dream Killers is not enough.
We must simultaneously bridge to the new world of Cooperative Creativity.
You have a foot in both worlds.

You can be that bridge and help redirect this conversation (as the road begins to turn) and we begin to win.
We will Win -- if winning means that we will evolve politically/spiritually/mentally/emotionally/socially -- we will win.
If we will not, then we have nothing to lose by believing that we will (thereby Keeping the Dream Alive as a seed).
If we will win, then that win can only be strengthened and eased (whether using a sports analogy, or a referring to cosmic mechanical fact) by Believing In, and Preparing For, that Victory -----
which will Transformation the Ways
by which we interact as individuals,
as tribes,
as nations,
as federations of nations
and as a species with other species.

Thanks Always for Great Radio.
JC
(PS: Call Van)

Melanocomously ugly? "Melanocomous" means "having black hair". That doesn't seem nice.

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Today, we are closing Thom's blog in this space and moving to a new home.

Please follow us across to hartmannreport.com - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom is a national treasure. Read him, embrace him, learn from him, and follow him as we all work for social change."
Robert Greenwald, political activist and founder and president of Brave New Films
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 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
