#24 Thom Hartmann: Democracy is Not a Spectator Sport

Play
Read more

For more than a decade, Thom Hartmann has been the #1 progressive talk show host in the United States. His show, The Hartmann Report, is aired on hundreds of radio and television stations across the country. He is also a New York Times best-selling author of 24 books and the founder of numerous commercial and charitable organizations.

Recorded in the lead up to the US presidential election, Thom shares his thoughts on What Could Possibly Go Right?  including:

  • The Supreme Court decisions in the 1970s that paved the way for corporate money to influence political parties for decades since.
  • The more obvious use of voter suppression as a tactic in this year’s election.
  • The coalitions that exist in each party and how they interact.
  • The “general misapprehension of the role of a politician, even among some politicians”.
  • The “great man theory of history” doesn’t serve us well and we should look to elect towards a movement, rather than individual leader.
  • That “democracy is not a spectator sport. It's about all of us getting involved, that everybody needs to get active and, Tag. You're it!"

Thom Hartmann #708

Play
Read more

Thom Hartmann joins me to have a very deep conversation about what is unfolding in our country and his powerful new book, The Hidden History of Monopolies: How Big Business Destroyed the American Dream. (read his new book!)   Thom is a progressive national and internationally syndicated talk show host whose shows are available in over a half-billion homes worldwide. He’s the New York Times bestselling, 4-time Project Censored Award-winning author of 24 books in print in 17 languages on five continents. Leonardo DiCaprio was inspired by Thom’s book The Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight to make the movie The 11th Hour (in which Thom appears), and the movie Ice On Fire.

Talkers Magazine named Thom Hartmann as the 10th most important talk show host in America in 2019 and has been in the top ten for over a decade and is the #1 most important progressive host, in their “Heavy Hundred” ranking.

His radio show is syndicated on for-profit FM and AM radio stations nationally, on non-profit and community stations nationwide by Pacifica, across the entire North American continent on SiriusXM Satellite radio (Progress, Channel 127), on cable systems nationwide by Cable Radio Network (CRN), via subscription audio podcasts, worldwide through the US Armed Forces Network, and through the Thom Hartmann iOS and Android apps. The radio show is also simulcast as TV in real-time into nearly 40 million US and Canadian homes by the Free Speech TV Network on Dish Network, DirectTV, on cable TV systems nationwide, and live on both YouTube and Facebook.

Thom has spent much of his life working with and for the international Salem relief organization and he and his wife Louise founded a community for abused children in New Hampshire and a school for learning disabled and ADHD kids. His book Attention Deficit Disorder: A Different Perception sparked a national debate, both in the psychology/psychiatry community and among the general public, on ADD/ADHD and neurological differences ranging from giftedness to autism. His book Rebooting The American Dream so inspired Senator Bernie Sanders that he wrote a cover letter to accompany the delivery of the book to his 99 colleagues in the United States Senate and he read from it extensively on the floor of the Senate during his famous filibuster.

As an entrepreneur, he’s also founded several successful businesses which still are operating, and lived and worked with his wife, Louise, and their three children on several continents.

An inveterate traveler and sometimes a risk-taker, Hartmann has often found himself in the world’s hot spots on behalf of the German-based Salem international relief organization or as a writer, a situation which causes his friends to sometimes wonder aloud if he works for the CIA (he does not). He was, for example, in The Philippines when Ferdinand Marcos fled the country; in Egypt the week Anwar Sadat was shot; in Uganda during the war of liberation by Tanzania; in Hungary when the first East German refugees arrived; in Germany when the wall came down; in Beijing during the first student demonstrations; in Thailand when the military coup of 1991 occurred; in Barbados during the 2004 anti-government strikes and shutdowns; in Bogota and Medellin, Colombia, during the spate of killings of presidential candidates; in Israel, in the West Bank town of Nablus, the week the Intifada started there; on the Czech border the week Chernobyl melted down; in Kenya during the first big wave of crackdowns on dissidents; and in Venezuela during the 1991 coup attempt. He has been successful in avoiding some disasters, however. For example, he was out of the country when George H.W. Bush picked Dan Quayle as his running mate.

He was born and grew up in Michigan, and retains strong ties to the Midwest, although he and Louise have lived in New Hampshire, Vermont, Georgia, Germany, and Oregon… and now live with a small menagerie in Portland, Oregon.
