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.

Syria: Al Qaeda Seeks “Consultations” to Rule Newly Seized City

Click here to access article by Tony Cartalucci from New Eastern Outlook. 

While the Empire and its Medieval gulf allies sponsor terrorist armies, Western media managers have a huge problem in trying to spin their reports to conform with their other propaganda about NATO and the Arab collaborators being concerned about humanitarian issues and the brutal dictatorship of Syria's Assad. Cartalucci sees in such actions a strategy of destabilization that the Empire used successfully in Libya.
What is forming before the world’s collective eyes is an attempt to sell the concept of an Al Qaeda-led opposition government, based in Idlib, behind which NATO and its Persian Gulf allies will place their support.
