Join us in reaching for a deeper understanding of our country's current predicament.

Charles Ferguson, Oscar-winning director of Inside Job, talks to Amy Goodman about how corrupt financial, education and government sectors work in tandem to grow rich while we grow poorer.


The above link will lead you to a short interview with Charles Ferguson. Please listen, and if you are interested, join me in "Awaken Evanston", a city-wide reach out to people who want to understand what is happening to our country.

Initially, we will be reading Ferguson's latest book, "Predator Nation, Corporate Criminals, Political Corruption, and the Hi-jacking of America."  We will meet at venues in Evanston appropriate to the number of people who respond. We will begin meeting every week or two, starting sometime in late June.

"Government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem." Ronald Reagan It's really no more complex than that. Big business colludes with big government for competitive advantage. Big business is neither Republican or Democrat. Big business will work with whoever is in charge of the government to gain competitive advantage. The only way to break up the collusion between big business and big government is to break up big government. The Founders of this country got it right the first time. And until the Great Depression, America was doing fine. FDR introduced socialism into America and America has not been the same since. It's time for America to go back to its founding principles. Of course, leftists will want bring up the issue of slavery to attack America's founding principles. It was the Democrats (the leftists) who supported slavery.

Hi Richard I agree, but we need to understand we are governed by the banks, and the top ranking politicians work for them. That's why voting doesn't really get us anywhere anymore. So how to start? First, understand the monetary and banking system, study the Rothschilds, Rockefellers, the Federal Reserve, and the too big to fails like JP Morgan and Goldman Sachs. This will help us to understand the monster we are facing.
