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.

Briefing on the migrant crisis: causes and consequences
The Empire of Chaos, designated by Pepe Escobar, has earned this reputation by its so-called "War on Teror" and its "seven country strategy" as discovered by the shocked Gen. Wesley Clark shortly after 9/11 while visiting some Pentagon offices. The inspiration of this grand strategy came from Rumsfield, Wolfowitz, and mostly other Zionists dating back from 1991 and first expressed to Gen. Clark by Wolfowitz in 1991. The policy was formally laid out in the infamous paper published by the Project for the New American Century in 2000 entitled "Rebuilding America's Defenses" which noted that only a "new Pearl Harbor" would enable the military and defense policy transformations the group desired to rapidly take place. A lot of people think that this was 9/11.
We are now seeing the results of these strategies of chaos as we witness many millions of people uprooted all over the Middle East and North Africa fleeing the violence and disintegration of their countries.
