Show Notes
Karl reveals a big ‘thing’. What would you do in his situation as our corrupted democracy devolves from community to community created millionaires? Meanwhile the public has no clue as to how they play out as pawns. Solution – to enable our freedom to define the future. These are reassuring words, but let’s put this into action.
