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.

Pentagon Papers Whistleblower: Kennedy Resisted ‘Nuclear Cultist’ Joint Chiefs

Click here to access article and one hour video featuring Daniel Ellsberg from Mint Press.

If you want to learn the real history of the Vietnam War, you can do no better than this report (and series) from someone who had intimate knowledge of what was going on. In this report Ellsberg reveals the clash between the "nuclear cultists" who were fanatic anti-communists and Kennedy which was another main reason why he was assassinated by our shadow government. In the future we will likely not have a president like Kennedy to stand up against such fanatic Empire builders.
MintPress News is proud to host “Lied to Death,” a 13-part audio conversation between famed whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg and social justice activist Arn Menconi.

Menconi wrote that these interviews are a “mixture of historical, political science and Dan’s sixty-year scholarly analysis as a former nuclear planner for Rand Corporation.”

.... In this chapter of “Lied to Death,” Daniel Ellsberg continues to explore President John F. Kennedy’s involvement with the Vietnam War and other military conflicts in Asia, including his resistance to the use of nuclear weapons and ground troops, a topic also discussed in Chapter 4.
