We’ve lived so long under the spell of hierarchy—from god-kings to feudal lords to party bosses—that only recently have we awakened to see not only that “regular” citizens have the capacity for self-governance, but that without their engagement our huge global crises cannot be addressed. The changes needed for human society simply to survive, let alone thrive, are so profound that the only way we will move toward them is if we ourselves, regular citizens, feel meaningful ownership of solutions through direct engagement. Our problems are too big, interrelated, and pervasive to yield to directives from on high.

East by Northwest website is back!

Regarding my earlier concern about the removed website East by Northwest which has been missing for over a week, I just wanted to announce to all my readers that I recently received two notices directly from Colin Todhunter that his blog is back! I checked and indeed it is! Here are the messages:
It's back. Nothing sinister. Just a few technical problems.

It's back. Just had a few technical issues.
