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.

‘This is what happens when you get into bed with extremists’

Click here to access a 12:57 interview conducted by RT with the editor of Politics First Marcus Papadopoulos, commenting on the Brussels blasts.

I was aghast at his first comment (0:30m) about the terrorist attack in Brussels as "demonstrating the evil nature of Islamism", but after that he summarizes all the sponsorship and support of the Empire (US and NATO countries), its Mid-East medieval cronies, and Turkey given to terrorist armies that have tried to overturn the Syrian government.
