Norman’s presentation and

Norman’s presentation and arguments were spot on- it is so important to expose the goings on and machinations of corporations and their corporate sponsored politicians. Although I understand the emotional draw of the other speakers comments, I don’t think they hold water on a real life scale. Normans example of South Africa’s apartheid and when reconciliation was actually made possible, was brilliant. I see the same problem in parenting- without clear concrete boundaries and consequences, people do not behave well. They need clearly defined rules, consequences and modeling of kind humane behaviors- That is why Martin Luther King, Ghandi and on the local level, Norman and our show host, Mitch, are such good examples of how a supportive environment and clear communication make for a truly enlightening experience for all of us. As always, your loyal fan
