Dennis KucinichThis evening’s show will be an Enlightened, Evolutionary Politics Roundtable, dedicated to ideas about transforming the current political zeitgeist in the U.S.

To help bring forth first an understanding of what it’s really like to serve in Congress, then enlightening ideas about its transformation, is Representative Dennis Kucinich, Congressman from Ohio,  former, two-term Mayor of Salt Lake City, Rocky Anderson, now running for President in the Justice Party and former Vice-Presidential candidate, social philosopher Barbara Marx Hubbard, each of whom has been a guest a few times on A Better World Radio &/or TV.

We have last-minute word that former Presidential candidate Ralph Nader may be joining us as well.

Rep.  Kucinich has an outstanding record of being an advocate for The People, and not being swayed by money or public opinion.  Dennis has run for the Democratic Nomination for President a few times and was considered by many to have been the strongest candidate. as his opinions and platforms are truly progressive and for the People. On the nationally-televised debates, the reporters gave him very little air time because he so departed from the views of Congress’ usual corporate sponsors.

With courage and without much support from his colleagues in Congress, Rep. Kucinich called for hearings to review impeachment of GW Bush for war crimes and a series of other actions deemed by many to be unconstitutional and illegal.

Rocky AndersonRocky Anderson served two terms as the 33rd Mayor of Salt Lake City, Utah, (2000-2008).[1] He is the Executive Director of High Road for Human Rights.[2] Prior to serving as Mayor, he practiced law for 21 years in Salt Lake City, during which time he was listed in Best Lawyers in America, was rated A-V (highest rating) by Martindale-Hubbell. As Mayor and environmentalist, Rocky reduced the carbon footprint of the City in three years by a third.

As Mayor, Anderson rose to nationwide prominence as a champion of several national and international causes, including climate protection, immigration reform, restorative criminal justice, GLBT rights, and an end to the “war on drugs”. Before and after the invasion by the U.S. of Iraq in 2003, Anderson was a leading opponent of the invasion and occupation of Iraq and related human rights abuses. Anderson was the only mayor of a major U.S. city who advocated for the impeachment of President George W. Bush, which he did in many venues throughout the United States.

Anderson’s work and advocacy led to local, national, and international recognition in numerous spheres, including being named by Business Week as one of the top twenty activists in the world on climate change[5], serving on the Newsweek Global Environmental Leadership Advisory Board[6], and being recognised by the Human Rights Campaign as one of the top ten straight advocates in the United States for GLBT equality.[7] He has also received numerous awards for his work, including the EPA Climate Protection Award,[8] the Sierra Club Distinguished Service Award,[9] the Respect the Earth Planet Defender Award and many others.

In the interest of steering our country into a direction that serves its potential instead of the current path it has been following, Rocky Anderson co-formed The Justice Party last fall and is now running as its Presidential Candidate.

Ralph NaderRalph Nader is American’s most renowned and effective crusader for the rights of consumers and the general public, a role that has repeatedly brought him into conflict with both business and government. Nader’s dream of becoming a “people’s lawyer” was instilled in him in adolescence by his parents and indeed he became exactly that while also running for President of the United States six times.

An advocate par excellence of the People, Ralph Nader exemplifies what political leadership, without even holding formal office, is all about. In his career to date Ralph has either started or inspired over 20 different non-profit organizations, dedicated to consumer protection, environmental protection, protection of rights and the like.

Additional to all of his public speaking, advocacy, legal work and teaching he has authored some dozen books over the years.

Barbara Marx HubbardBarbara Marx Hubbard has been called “the voice for conscious evolution of our time” by Deepak Chopra and is the subject of Barbara Marx HubbardNeale Donald Walsch’s new book “The Mother of Invention.” A prolific author, visionary, social innovator, evolutionary thinker and educator, she is co-founder and chairperson of the Foundation for Conscious Evolution. She is the producer and narrator of the award-winning documentary series entitled Humanity Ascending: A New Way through Together and has recently partnered with The Shift Network as a global ambassador for the conscious evolution movement; a shift from evolution by chance towards evolution by choice.

Birth 2012: Co-Creating a Planetary Shift in Time” on Dec. 22, 2012 (www.birth2012.com) — a historic, turning-point event; awakening the social, spiritual, scientific, and technological potential of humanity is the title of her latest book.

In 1984 her name was placed in nomination for the Vice Presidency of the United States on the Democratic ticket, calling for a “Peace Room” to scan for, map, connect and communicate what is working in America and the world. Barbara also co-chaired a number of Soviet-American Citizen Summits, introducing a new concept called “SYNCON to foster synergistic convergence with opposing groups. She developed SYNCON conferences to bring together opposing forces to discover the positive benefit of a long range earth-space development program where she worked with builders of the Space Shuttle and continued her passion for an expanded and peace generating space program.

She is a Fellow of The Club of Budapest, and has received an honorary PhD in Conscious Evolution from the Giordano Bruno GlobalShift University. She has established a Chair in Conscious Evolution at Wisdom University and is member of many progressive organizations, including Evolutionary Leaders Group, Global New Thought (AGNT), as well as, The World Future Society.

This Roundtable will discuss initially what is ailing politics today in America and what it would look like, what would it be with integrity-based, enlightened leadership.

  1. I hope people all over the country tune into this show. Talk about three gifted and enlightened leaders talking round table about the future of our country. Rocky, Dennis and Barbara are three of my favorite people. They lead from the heart with intelligence and compassion. I wish all our leaders thought and acted like these three individuals. We are so fortunate to have someone like Rocky Anderson running for President of the United States. Please everyone, learn more about Rocky and be sure to vote for him to be our next President! He is our best bet for world peace. ♥

    • Dear D’Marie,

      Thanks for sharing. I agree, which is why I assembled this enlightened group of true leaders.

      So that people all over the world can tune in, please spread it around on FB, your friends, Twitter, etc. In fact, the Newsletter is posted now at http://abetterworld.tv/newsletter through which I go into further details about each participant and speak in the blog generally about what we need for an Enlightened Body Politic.

      Thanks for your note.

    • Dear D’Marie,

      Thanks so much for your comments–I too hope the country over listens to this show. Each person’s input was invaluable–and Rocky has this on his website under Media. You can take the link and forward it to your list, through FB, Twitter, etc. as it’s on a silver platter for all to hear and see.

      I appreciate your sharing–please stay in touch with us at A Better World.

  2. question for Rocky. What if a mineral, a crystal food could return reason to the mind of man? Kyoto occurred after we met. Sulfur was the message and I was unable to share the information because someone said I had threatened you. The threat is to corporations who want our money, and may not understand why we stop buying their stuff. GE is an example.
    The candidate who embraces sulfur will be the next President. The money we save being healthy will be spent more judiciously. Boycott.
    Ralph is lecturing we the people and he killed the Corvair, we have killed nothing.
    Organic Sulfur addresses stupidity, autism, Alzheimer’s, cancer, and depression and the fear its fosters, could that address apathy?
    Rocky why would the telephone operator think I had threatened you? That disconnect will create a reason to laugh about the research done while incarcerated.

    I was gone all day. Do you have the two shows from the today available? I am a big Rocky supporter and would love to listen. Thanks.

    • Dear Darlene,

      Thanks for your note. The first show you’re referring to is available through our Radio Archive at http://www.abetterworld.tv at any time of night or day permanently. There are two other radio shows that I did with Rocky, one in December, one in January, also in the archive. Just scroll down, or put his name into the search engine and select category, “Radio Archive”, and voila, for your listening pleasure and education.

      As well as to forward to others so they can also become familiar with Rocky and his positions on a number of topics which we cover. I too would like to see the public get much more aware of and educated about him so that the duopolistic stranglehold on our government–and on us–can come to an end. Thanks for your interest.
