I mentioned in a previous blog [June 4, 2010] that one of the most inspiring talks at the Understanding Deep Politics conference in Santa Cruz earlier this year was by Ellen Brown, a litigation attorney who has written an exciting book on The Web of Debt. (She’s previously authored about a dozen books on various aspects of natural healing). I urge folks to check out her website (www.webofdebt.com) and, besides her book, her ongoing series of blogs. Here is a selection of recent blogs:
