This is an extraordinary

This is an extraordinary session. These two kept saying mouthsful, sentence after sentence. I hope you will have them back to discuss their thesis in great detail. It wasn't hard to grasp the truth of what they posit. It answers the great question of our dilemma - why we haven't been able to make any headway against the establishment's status quo - we haven't been able to deal with the root cause because we didn't recognize the enormous strength of what has been enabling and holding up the establishment's ability to keep going through all the crises. The more money that is sucked to the top, the more effort we make to "make do" without it. I kept telling myself, "If they wan't all the money, they can have it. I'll find some other way to survive." Which only made me blind to the real solution. We must add this to our dialogue and develop our strategies anew to include finance as the useful tool it has proved itself to be. That was a real wake up call. Thank you, Mitch.

Panitch has got it all wrong.

Panitch has got it all wrong. There is no way to sugar coat this lying, murderous, thieving empire.
