Welcome to New Dimensions Radio!
When Thom Hartmann bought an old farmhouse in Vermont, hidden away in the attic he found a complete twenty-volume set of the complete writings of Thomas Jefferson, published in 1904. The discovery led Hartmann to explore our founding fathers' true vision for America, and how that vision is and is not reflected in the government and society we see today. His observations are at once disturbing and hopeful. He points to the many ways our present government might make Jefferson's blood run cold, and yet offers hard evidence for the opportunity we have to return to the ideals of democracy at its best. He explains, "Change, number one, doesn't necessarily happen instantly, and, number two, never happens from the top down; it always happens from the bottom up. So the reality is that change is happening." Ultimately, Hartman reminds us, the future course of our government really is in our hands. (hosted by Michael Toms)
