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.

“Saving America?” No, Donald Trump Is a Clinton Operative

Click here to access article by Melissa Dykes from The Daily Sheeple.

Quite a number of people have speculated that the Donald Trump candidacy for president in the Republican party is all a part of setup to clear the path of any Republican candidate that could derail the shadow government's long planned installation of Hillary Clinton for the Executive Office. Of course, this is an example of a conspiracy theory. So, should we just dismiss it with the pejorative statement that it is just a "conspiracy theory" like we are urged to do by those in our ruling class that attempt to hide their conspiracies? There are good theories and bad theories depending on the evidence and arguments assembled to support it. I think that Dykes assembles both in support of this conspiracy. Read the article and see what you think.
...if anyone ever had half a chance in Hell of changing anything in this country, rest assured The Powers That Shouldn’t Be would not let that person anywhere near the Oval Office. The last time this country had a president that tried to change things, that person got his brains blown out in front of the entire country.

But here’s what actually going on.
The only problem I have with her analysis is a problem that I have with many American critical observers: they use euphemisms like "aristocracy" or "powers that be" in place of a meaningful identification like the "ruling capitalist class". This practice serves to hide the reality of class rule which helps to maintain the fake democracy indoctrination of this ruling class.
