Journey to Chartres with Thomas Meyer

"We are like dwarfs sitting on the shoulders of giants. We see more, and things that are more distant, than they did, not because our sight is superior or because we are taller than they, but because they raise us up, and by their great stature add to ours." ~ John of Salisbury quoting Bernard of Chartres, 1159

By Catherine Austin Fitts

In October, I journeyed to Switzerland to visit with Thomas Meyer and his family. Thomas and his team from Perseus Publishing held a workshop in Basel, where we discussed our vision of the future. Will men and women live free in the light of divine authority? Or will we descend into subhumanism and hypermaterialism?

Then Thomas and I journeyed together by train to France to visit the great cathedral of Chartres. We were joined by members of Perseus Publishing's team (who publish Europa and The Present Age) and by Robert Dupper, who drove from the Netherlands to film our discussions of pilgrimage. As those of us in the United States gather this week to celebrate Thanksgiving, I am deeply grateful that Thomas and his exceptional team have become part of our lives and the network of Solari contributors dedicated to integrity and a human future.

Join us as Thomas and I celebrate this great cathedral and its builders and stewards—and the fact that Chartres continues to nourish and inspire so many who journey there.

In 2020, I will join Thomas for his next workshop in Basel (in March), and he will join our Lake Constance Hang in August. Solari Report subscribers are welcome at both events!

For Let's Go to the Movies, I will review the film The Myth of Extinction (Rebellion) by Truthstream Media. Melissa and Aaron Dykes’ latest offering does a marvelous job of documenting the lavish expenditures of the uber-wealthy on funding extreme protests and street theater designed to fake a "grassroots" movement and manipulate concerns about the environment—all to engineer more central control.


It's the last week of the month, so no Money & Markets. Please e-mail your questions for Ask Catherine or post them at the Money & Markets commentary for the next Money & Markets in December here.

Talk to you Thursday!
