    Here is something I wrote in 2001. Not much has changed. Until we share responsibility for the whole to work while look at real numbers about what is going on, including in our neighborhood, ain’t nothing going to work. That’s the way it is:

    “Our task is to look at the world and see it whole.”
    — E. F. Schumacher

    “An entrepreneur who grew up on a small island once explained why small islands produced a much higher percentage of people who were good at starting and building successful businesses. He said it was because when a person grows up on a small island, you see how everything is connected. It is much easier to learn how to take responsibility for the whole — to see how all time and energy is precious and never to waste anything. People who grow up on small islands, he said, understand that “a penny saved is a penny earned.”

    He had been taught from the time he was a small child to connect the behavior of individual people with how everything works around him. He said that he had learned to adjust his behavior so that it contributed to the system working in the way he hoped it would. His family, his school and his church all encouraged him to take responsibility for the whole in practical concrete ways. People who grow up on small islands, he said, understand that “what goes around comes around.”

    My friend said that America is just a very big island, but most Americans do not know this — nor do they understand that the planet is also just an even bigger island. They cannot connect how the system works — particularly the aspects of the system they do not like — with their individual actions. They do not have even simple maps of how things connect. They do not understand their own power to vote with their thoughts, their choice of friends and spouse, their actions and how they spend their money every day. People who grow up on small islands, he said, “see the world whole.”

    Most Americans look at our situation from their own individual points of view. From every degree of the circle, there is a different definition of what ails us, of why our system isn’t working, and what the solutions are. Often, what we perceive as our own individual problems are really just the symptoms each person experiences of the deeper problems that we all share. Too many times, the solution is to blame or attack someone, or to propose that more government or private capital be spent in a futile attempt to keep the wolf from the door. Without a simple map of where we are and how to get to a better place together, we have forgotten that we are in this together and at the simplest level, you simply can’t eat what you don’t grow.”

    “Ignorance has always been the weapon of tyrants; enlightenment the salvation of the free” ~ Bill Richardson

    By Catherine Austin Fitts

    This week on the Solari Report, I am speaking to family nutritionist Dr. Laura Thompson.

    I am increasingly concerned about the risks involved in using US health care systems. In my personal circles, I see people and couples who are astute at accessing both holistic and conventional health systems.  They know how to get the best of both worlds and to do so economically.

    Others don’t invest time in understanding health issues and ensuring that providers and treatments have integrity.  The consequences can threaten health, lives and financial security.

    I asked Dr. Thompson to join me to discuss how to gain the intellectual mastery we need to become informed users of health care information and services – to achieve health care independence. I see this as essential to the financial health of an individual or family, not to mention well being and happiness. It requires an assumption of greater responsibility for our health as well as an investment of time in learning how to do so. Dr. Thompson walks us through the steps we can take to achieve health care independence.

    In addition to the latest in financial and geopolitical news in Money & Markets, I will continue my coverage of the first 100 days of the Trump administration and the ongoing saga of the “Swamp Strikes Back” whereby the established Washington interests accuse President Trump and his team of doing what they themselves have, in fact, been doing. The swamp for years has been interfering in foreign elections, engaging in corrupt foreign practices, and enjoying the fruits of illegal sexual activities. The swamp has been emboldened by concerns in the establishment regarding the new teams inexperience amplified by illegal leaking. The leaking may reflect a much wider dissemination of NSA data organized by Obama right before he left office. I will explain why Obama got our Scorpion of the Week award.

    In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review Harry & Snowman, a wonderful documentary about one of my childhood favorites – a horse named Snowman. Saved from a trip to the glue factory by Dutchman Harry de Leyer, Snowman became America’s open jumper champion. This is a Cinderella story – one that will reduce you to a combination of tears and gratitude for the opportunity to know a man and a horse this inspiring.

    “The aim and final end of all music should be none other than the glory of God and the refreshment of the soul.” ~ Johann Sebastian Bach

    By Catherine Austin Fitts

    This week on the Solari Report, I am speaking to Dr. Michael Linton, scholar, composer, entrepreneur, and expert on all things Bach.  Dr. Linton is a professor of music in the School of Music at Middle Tennessee State University, founder of music company Refiners Fire, and long-time ally. He is a rare combination – a leading Bach scholar with mastery of the Solari Report archive and a deep and abiding faith in our divine possibilities.

    Our Joseph P. Farrell Virtual Crowdfund has sparked an increased interest in Bach’s work. I have been getting requests for listening recommendations and questions about Bach. So I invited Dr. Linton to provide you with a proper introduction. He has generously provided an extensive list of listening recommendations for you on all areas of Bach’s work that will be posted in the subscribers links.

    Even if you are not interested in Bach or classical music, I have found there is no better antidote for cultural or mental debasement than listening to Bach.  So you might want to just try some of Dr. Linton’s listening suggestions.

    In Money & Markets this week I will discuss the latest financial and geopolitical news, including the rising chorus of “pin the tail on the Donald” using allegations related to Russia. Please e-mail or post your questions for Ask Catherine.

    Following the resignation of General Michael Flynn, former Congressman Dennis Kucinich reveals that a deeper game is underway in Washington (Fox News, Feb 14, 2017):

    Excerpts from Dennis Kucinich’s interview:

    The White House, whether you’re for Trump or against Trump, is under attack from elements inside the intelligence community which are trying to elevate tensions between Russia and the United States. And at the bottom of that is money and an agenda for somebody to cash in on conflict between the US and Russia at any level.

    What’s going on in the intelligence community with this new president is unprecedented. They are making every effort to up-end him. Who knows what the truth is anymore? This is like the electronic version of Mad Magazine: spy versus spy.  …The bottom line is: we should not start a cold war again with Russia. The American people forked over billions of dollars for the last one and changed the quality of life in this country. There’s something wrong going on here in the intelligence community.

    I want to remind the viewers and all those who are on the panel, that in the closing months of the Obama administration they put together a deal with Russia to create peace in Syria. A few days later, a military strike in Syria killed a hundred Syrian soldiers and that ended the agreement. …Inside the intelligence community and the Pentagon there was a deliberate effort to sabotage an agreement the White House made. This is like Deep State. This is like some kind of a spy novel. But it’s real and the American people have to understand that a game is being played with the security of our country.

    Hon. Marsha Blackburn
    US Congressman
    7th District of Tennessee

    BY FAX, E-MAIL AND MAIL

    Dear Congressman Blackburn:

    Thank you for your service to the people of Tennessee. It is much appreciated.

    I am writing today to offer a suggestion of something you and your staff can do to help revitalize local markets, create private jobs and income in Tennessee communities – and communities throughout America – and reduce our national budget deficit.

    This suggestion will require no new laws or regulations and no new appropriations. It can be done within the existing administrative resources of federal agencies. Despite the minor expense involved, it can make an important contribution to reviving local and regional markets and economies.

    In Latin America, when the economy was restructuring and government budgets had to change, citizens implemented a process called participatory budgeting. The first full participatory budgeting process was developed in the city of Porto Alegre, Brazil in 1989.

    “The earth is not dying, it is being killed, and those who are killing it have names and addresses.” ~Utah Phillips

    By Catherine Austin Fitts

    So USING TAXPAYERS MONEY the US intelligence agencies and/or their related defense contractors and empowered telecommunications providers made recordings of a transition team member (Michael Flynn) speaking with a foreign Ambassador and give transcript data to private media outlets and reporters.

    They then used that information and its ILLEGAL DISSEMINATION to sabotage a sitting National Security Advisor. At the same time, they are ILLEGALLY leaking excerpts of phone conversations of the President with foreign leaders for all the world to read and misrepresenting those conversations.

    So we are paying tens of billions every year to people to break the law and use their lawlessness to control who does and does not work in our government in a manner that allows them to control policies – like how to make more money going to war. And announcing it far and wide to every foreign government in the world. So our allies can not trust us and our enemies are emboldened.

    Who elected them? Not me, not you. Who gave them the right to repeatedly break the law with impunity on our dime? Not me, not you.

    No government information sovereignty = no government. Get it?

    Maybe Trump ought to fire the people who keep breaking the law. It wasn’t Flynn.  Instead the President has sacrificed the lawful at the alter of the lawless.

    Felons win big.

    Why are we paying for this?

    You may feel obliged to pay your taxes for now, but you can sure cancel your subscriptions to the New York Times and the Washington Post, cancel your cable, turn off your TV and slash your telecommunications bills to the bone.
