The NLP toolbox was a great contribution to my therapeutic work. As you know, a trance state is not necessary to achieve results. I just called it 'visualization.' Now most 'treatment' is chemical because one can prescribe in ten minutes. Thanks private insurance!!

THOM'S USUAL ELOQUENCE. I had always admired Thom's broad grasp of history, but his overview of the Adams/Jefferson/Calvin philosophies and how they reflect Republican/Progressive differences today was mind-blowing. Thom is a master teacher of our times, a truly illuminating person. I was equally fascinated with his previous discussion about the history of hypnotherapy. As a psych major and lifelong student of the works of Carl Jung, I had not heard this story about the cultural impact of the novel Trilby before. It explains a great deal. I have an expanding list of people with whom I would like to have dinner in this lifetime, and Thom stays up in the top five. That will be a conversation well worth waiting for. Antoniafelix.com

Trump Is Using Racist White People To Make The Rich Richer

There is this whole mythology that Donald Trump came to power because 53% of white women voted for him, because 66% of white working men who didn't have a college degree voted for him.

That may be, but those are not his constituents. Those are his suckers. Those are his rubes.

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:
"Thom Hartmann is a literary descendent of Ben Franklin and Tom Paine. His unflinching observations and deep passion inspire us to explore contemporary culture, politics, and economics; challenge us to face the facts of the societies we are creating; and empower us to demand a better world for our children and grandchildren."
John Perkins, author of the New York Times bestselling book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man
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."
