RC27: What's Happened to America with Philip Gimson
Manage episode 345392965 series 3288096
The democratic and political systems of the west in particular have been turned upside down over the past 5 years with there being more anger, frustration, and toxicity than ever before. We just have to take a look at what has happened in the United States of America; the most powerful country of them all.
In this episode, we're going a little off-script as we dive into this subject with the intention to inspire people to take back their personal power, instead of giving it away to politicians, or the establishment and to bring people together despite their different views and opinions for this is what makes society. We can all co-exist and thrive despite our varied views and opinions if we get back to what it means to be human.
We dive into this subject with Philip J. Gimson who is an Author and former Journalist. Philip has spent much of his life working in public relations and recruiting. "Stop Pretending America! An Outsider's Guide to Healing the Sickness on the Inside in Elections and the Media" is his first non-fiction book. Additionally, Philip wrote a novel, "Paper Story," published in the early 1990s. He has also written three unpublished screen plays and an abandoned second novel which with some time to reflect upon that experience, he realised that it was all part of creative growth.
A native of New Jersey he now makes his home in Pennsylvania and is an ardent advocate of the need to preserve American democracy. For the past three years he has regularly devoted his time to career and interview coaching of active and retired military and their spouses seeking to transition into the private sector through Candorful.org, a non-profit organisation. He served for 5 years on the board of trustees of the New Jersey Chapter of the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation, and served one year as that organisation’s co-chairman/president.
