What people are saying:
“It was such an honor to meet you last Tuesday at Cornerstones of Democracy. Your book The Chalice and the Blade is so inspiring and insightful and reading it was a life changing experience for me. I hope to do everything I can to push for a return to the principles you have taught me were once nearly universal. I dream of a day this will once again be true.”
