In Yesterday’s Visionaries in Today’s World, Stephen J. Bergstrom gives creative voice to visionary souls in process of awakening.
Through imaginative device, Yesterday’s Visionaries in Today’s World reveals two contrasting visions that shape contemporary existence.
In one, conquerors traverse the world as a series of endless privileges secured through material means and patriarchal oppression.
In the other, conquered and oppressed individuals and groups perceive that consciousness animates nature, humanity and the spirit of a Living Earth.

Throw away what you think you know about me. Throw away the Washington Post and the Pulitzer for Personal Journey, my memoir. Keep my 6-page obit. I’ll tell you why.
Our vision can be your vision.
Here’s what you need to know. My father was a banker, my mother an intellectual. By the time I assumed the Post, I was prepared to promote our vision.
Bradlee was my managing editor. Before he did my bidding, he wrote pr releases for CIA fronts in Europe. He was family.
When Nixon went off, got crazy, he was always paranoid but we thought, controllable, and put tariffs on imported goods and took the U.S. off the gold standard, we had to act.
By penalizing free trade, he strengthened U.S. companies but got off the plan. With free trade, corporations would rule the globe. Without, the people would rise, local economies would rise.
Nixon had to go. I hungered to fulfill my life purpose. Our vision would prevail.
Bradlee knew everything ahead of time. When the cubs, hungry to move up, Woodward and Bernstein, would come back with the dirt, Ben already had it because one of our other peoples was feeding it to them. Deep Throat was us!
Our vision would prevail.
After we sacked Nixon, and we knew this ahead of time, we put Gerry in get things reversed, and, of course, David made sure by putting his brother Nelson in as VP.
From that change, we spawned global Free Trade, the WTO, GATT, NAFTA, CAFTA , the worldwide corporate body and all ancillary parts, legislation, enforcement and executive.
I did my part. I made my contribution and read with fondness and great pride my 6-page obit that David arranged for his school, The University of Chicago, through their trustees, faculty and staff to place in the NY Times;
In life, we are invincible. In death, even in the soul realms, we live on, we dominate. Join us. You haven’t any other option, hungry as you are.
