98 VIII. Closing & Credits T he 3rd Quarter was a busy time at The Solari Report. I reoriented Solari Investment Advisory Services, LLC to focus entirely on investment screens. This im- proved my ability to manage my time—making it easier to travel and increasing the time I invest in publishing The Solari Report. Change is accelerating. I want The Solari Report to find and give our subscribers access to the highest integrity people with the most useful intelligence available. There is so much to do— it is a matter of earning the resources to reinvest and networking to make it happen. During 2018, we launched our Future Science Series, hosted by Ulrike Granögger, and our Wellness Series with Brigitte Mouchet, while the Food Series launched in 2016 with Harry Blazer has blossomed into an impressive, growing collection. One of my goals for 2019 is to selec- tively expand the number of outstanding hosts and regular guests from North America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Asia. During the last few months, I had the op- portunity to do more road tripping in America. I also had a chance to spend quality time with Thomas Meyer and his wonderful family in “People living in vigorous cultures typically treasure those cultures and resist any threat to them. How and why can a people so totally discard a formerly vital culture that it becomes literally lost? This is a ques- tion that has practical importance for us here in North America, and possibly in Western Europe as well. Dark Ages are instructive, precisely because they are extreme examples of cultural collapse and thus more clear-cut and vivid than gradual decay. The purpose of this book is to help our culture avoid sliding into a dead end, by understanding how such a tragedy comes about, and thereby what can be done to ward it off and thus retain and further develop our living, functioning culture, which contains so much of value, so hard won by our forebears.” ~Jane Jacobs, Dark Age Ahead
