Dennis Marker, longtime People for Peace member, will talk about his new book, Fifteen Steps to Corporate Feudalism, How the Rich Convinced the Middle Class to Eliminate Itself, at Garcia Street Bookstore this Saturday, July 14th, at 2 pm. You will also meet his fantastic Money Puppets which are for sale at MoneyPuppet.com. Please come! Also, could you kindly share this invitation with friends.
Dennis’s book, released in May, is doing well. He has interviews on a daily basis on shows that have national listeners and viewers. Two weeks ago the count was 24 interviews, and they have continued on at this rate of two or more a day.
To know more, go to thefifteensteps.com <http://thefifteensteps.com> and to thefifteensteps.com/blog <http://thefifteensteps.com/blog> and also www.MoneyPuppets.com <http://www.MoneyPuppets.com> , where one can choose a Money Puppet by state. There are Money Puppets videos on You Tube.
People for Peace played a role in this book’s publication. On seeing his manuscript, and its merit, Elliott and I suggested that we hold a seminar on the manuscript in the spring of 2011, and afterward, we encouraged him to publish it. We are pleased to see the wide reception his book is receiving (an order came from Indonesia the other day), and as persons who know the book well, we are not surprised.
Tune in to Mary Charlotte’s archive on KSFR to hear his interview on Radio Cafe. (Clue: type in Radio Café Santa Fe, choose older posts, and continue until the July 2nd interview shows up. For some reason the search menu does not work.) Dennis is very articulate. He had a substantial career as a journalist in D.C. A longer bio of Dennis can be seen at his home site, (see thefifteensteps.com <http://thefifteensteps.com> ).
Dennis Marker came to the first meeting of People for Peace. Dennis had just returned from Baghdad as the press person for a Fellowship of Reconciliation group. They had traveled to Baghdad in hope of offering themselves as hostages. We learned from Dennis only this spring at a People for Peace meeting that he interviewed Sadaam Hussein during this trip.
Please come to Garcia Street Books this Saturday at 2 pm. to hear Dennis talk about The Fifteen Steps to Corporate Feudalism, How the Rich Convinced the Middle Class to Eliminate Itself, to meet the Money Puppets, and to celebrate community, which now includes the wonderful local occupiers we have come to know, along with our many People for Peace friends.
Warmest regards to everyone,
may all of you be enjoying
the cooler midsummer,
