America: Solutions for a Sustainable Future - all six session bundle

$50

with Thomas Hepp

Calendar Oct 5, 2021 at 6 pm, runs for 3 weeks

In this course we will look at the flow of money in five areas of our culture and ask the question; why are we spending so much and what are we getting in return? We will look at the history of the Federal Reserve Bank, the military industrial complex, health care, the food industry and the legal system in an attempt to discover how we have arrived at where we are today. If we are to change where we are going, it is important to know where we have been. As the old saying goes, those that fail to learn the lessons of history are doomed to repeat it. Based on what we have learned, we will look for a common truth with the hope of finding long lasting solutions that will empower all people.
