Listen to Greta Thunberg’s “I Have A Dream” speech

By Jan Oberg April 17, 2019 The amazing person and phenomenon called Greta Thunberg can be looked at from many perspectives. What connects them all is the energies of hope.

By Jan Oberg April 10, 2019 A major economic factor behind the relative decline of the US is one hardly ever mentioned, at least not in the Western mainstream circles: Militarism.

US leadership approval in decline everywhere
