Bit about Richard Grove, the proprietor of TragedyAndHope.com; as the name of his project infers, it is done so with the awareness of Caroll Quigley's seminal work in mind (expose, debunking, warnings, and propaganda in all).



One more important interview from the series: Jan Irvin, the proprietor of http://www.triviumeducation.com/

I liked his Flea analogy.

Human nature reflects Mother Nature.

Isn't it great?!

If I remember correctly, Gatto realizing that he was the "lid on the jar" was one of those "ah ha!" moments that led to his decision to stop schooling young people.

this may be the MOST important interview

of our time. The information and insights in this series could turn humanity around from its free fall. John Gatto and the Tragedy and Hope project are providing the keys. Educate yourself and send the series to any thinking, open-minded people you know.

This is SO important!

It should be posted under Ron Paul 2012 instead of Videos.

The information is so foundational and so crucial that if every RP supporter watched it and then forwarded it on, our effectiveness would grow exponentially. Please don't be put off by the fact it's nearly six hours, you will be SUCKED IN within minutes, and it's the kind of material that you can digest in small pieces - in fact you will have to because it's so dense. Perhaps watch 15 minutes every morning and then use it as food for thought for the rest of your day.

When all is said and done, Gatto will go down as one of the great minds of our times.

thank you

WOW! You Know...

...if I told the VAST majority of people John Gatto is a friend of mine, they'd say, "That's nice."
I am tickled pink to be in company where I can say, "I'm d*mned proud John Gatto is a friend of mine!"
P.S. His FANTASTIC book, The Underground History of US Education is available free online.

I thank you

for your friendship, with him.o)

He along with Charlotte Thompson Iserbyt are the seminal whistleblowers of the statist indoctrination agenda. I so appreciate their works!

Hopefully, they'll both be around to see the seachange occur in society, knowing that they've helped provide information ammo to millions of us, who are awake, who have awoken, and are waking up.

You're welcome!

Here's one more for you, that has awakened many: The Art of Education: Reclaiming Your Family, Community and Self.


Thank you for being aware!!


Watch it online and then buy the DVD. It's AWESOME.


That's a lot of info there. It is true that Ron Paul is not only fighting a political war, but an educational one.

"Moderation in temper is always a virtue; but moderation in principle is always a vice." -- Thomas Paine



"We are product of neither nature nor nurture; we are a product of choice, because there is always a space between stimulus and response. As we wisely exercise our power to choose based on principles, the space will become larger."
-Stephen Covey

I have viewed all six hours

and can tell you that you won't be disappointed. Get a notebook handy because there are "notes" on the screen throughout, letting you know the name and author of the books cited.

yup, just downloaded them all for later viewing

sped through some.

I so appreciate the fact that R. Grove, author/producer/director of the T&H project put them all on YouTube, all for free for the world to see, when he sells these on BluRay!

extremely high production value, to boot.

I have no personal affiliation whatsoever with TragedyAndHope.com. So, for those of y'all who can, please consider supporting liberty educators & businesses, like T&H!

Thank you!
