  1. heard your interview on CONNECT THE DOTS on PRN RADIO very interesting nice show from both of you I like the idea of asking the 1% to join the majority instead of shunning them and talking about them like parasites it sounds like a difficult sell though how do we ask them to join the majority of those deprived because of the massive wealth they hold ? how do we unplug from them without casting them aside how do we make them WANT to be with the masses when they are addicted to class distinction I applaud you for initiating such an endeavor it seems everything is against you until everything is not

  2. Many of the 1% are going to be psychopaths, and they will not be swayed. But for those who are not, it’s hopeful to expect that they might give it back, or some part of it. I’ve always believed that building community gives us more security than hoarding wealth. Especially at times like this. We are witnessing the fall of the American Empire, and there are bound to be strong repercussions.
