Yestersday, I spoke at length with congressman Keith Ellison, who represents the people of Minneapolis. He agreed with me, that the treatment of journalists, that he'd seen on videos, was outrageous and inappropriate-- that journalists need to be able to report on protests without fearing arrest. And he promised to discuss and propose the idea of hearings to explore what happened, with John Conyers, head of the House Judiciary committee.

It is time for you to call your representative and senators and insist that hearings be held on the way police treated journalists and peaceful protesters. The police, the national guard, homeland security and the FBI went too for. Hearings must be held to prevent the US from sliding into a police state.

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.  Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives  one person at a time was too slow, he founded which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big)  to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
