Tom says the White Horse Prophesy calls the powerful adversary of virtue (supposedly Russia) "Gogmagog."
In fact the name comes from an ancient mythic history of Britain by Geoffrey of Monmouth, in which the first humans to populate the island were refugee Trojans led by Brutus, whose name was lent to the island.
Indigenous peoples were a race of giants, the last of whom was hurled into the sea at Cornwall by, if memory serves, its first human duke. This last of the giants was Gogmagog.
By the way, the first large-scale study of resveratrol use by humans (appropriately enough in Chianti) shows no benefit in reducing heart disease, cancer, nor in promoting longevity.
As so often is the case, something which seems incredibly promising in vitro and in animal studies proves not so when applied to human beings.
(I.e., we're all going to die.)

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 Cracking the Code:
"Thom Hartmann ought to be bronzed. His new book sets off from the same high plane as the last and offers explicit tools and how-to advice that will allow you to see, hear, and feel propaganda when it's directed at you and use the same techniques to refute it. His book would make a deaf-mute a better communicator. I want him on my reading table every day, and if you try one of his books, so will you."
Peter Coyote, actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Through compelling personal stories, Hartmann presents a dramatic and deeply disturbing picture of humans as a profoundly troubled species. Hope lies in his inspiring vision of our enormous unrealized potential and his description of the path to its realization."
David Korten, author of Agenda for a New Economy, The Great Turning, and When Corporations Rule the World
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
