Tell Your Friends!
I met a brilliant man in the 1970's a couple of times in Kansas City, Missouri. His name was Charles Walter, Jr. I was living in California at the time (the state was in much better shape than it is under today's maliciously insane state government). His greatness was not because of his intellectual brilliance (lots of brilliant men and women have chosen paths of destruction), as much as the fact that his intelligence and deep perception were combined with a genuine desire to see a better life for generations to come. His focus was agriculture. To him, it was not just our source of food, he also understood it was the origin of economic wealth. A single seed of corn planted in good soil can return hundreds of similar seeds. This is a pure gift from nature, from God. Not a trade or a business deal, but a pure gift, the origin of wealth. Once the gift of corn is received, creativity and labor are added, and it is turned into many useful forms and traded into the economy to become wealth. But it's all possible because of the original gift of nature.
Charles connected to his understanding of economics all based on what can happen after nature's gift is received by humans. He said, "to be economical, agriculture must be ecological." So he was responsible for the term Eco-Agriculture. Now the magazine that Charles started, Acres, USA is headquartered in Colorado (www.acresusa.com). It's General Manager, Ryan Slabaugh, a friend of Lost Arts Radio who has been on the show before (https://youtu.be/ktO0d5bJ2wA), is going to be talking with me about where we are in agriculture in America today, with all the GMO's and toxic methods that most farmers use, and what he thinks is going to happen in the years ahead. We'll talk about the Green New Deal, free market capitalism, socialism and a lot more. It's going to be an incredible conversation, so I hope you can be there with us.

PHC is a private, members-only platform, a supportive and interactive environment where I can speak with you freely about information that would be censored on the usual public platforms where most of our audio and video presentations are found. PHC is for you, when you're ready to really get deeply into special self-healing protocols and start transforming your life for the better. I'm there live to meet and talk with you every week. It's interactive, with live chat and plenty of time for Q&A, comments and any input you want to contribute.

It's where we look at some events of the past week, and what the significance is for your life and for the future of our world. After "Lost Arts Radio Live" is a half-hour break, followed by our weekly meeting of the Planetary Healing Club, which you can join for a minimum donation of just $25/month at www.planetaryhealingclub.com. Meet me there when you're ready to transform your experience of life for the better.
