Beyond Resistance Is a Book I Can Warmly Recommend

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Beyond Resistance: Coping with the Stress of the Trump Era by Kathy Hertz and Donna Lipman. As I wrote in my review on the Amazon website: "I've got to say this is a truly amazing book. I never thought of relating shadow work to politics, but this really works.

State Killings - The Jamal Kashoggi Murder

The murder of Saudi-born journalist Jamal Kashoggi is a disgrace for Saudi Arabia. No one can EVER endorse state killings under ANY form. Jamal was the nephew of world-famous arms dealer Adnan Kashoggi who died in 2017.

Witch Hunt, Fake News, Lies, Double Speak - When Will It End?

If it wasn't said by US President Trump, one would believe it was just some wacko speaking. No one ever guessed that a sitting President would use such foul language whenever he speaks on TV.
