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.

Hillary Clinton’s Project For A New American Century
My only criticism of this piece is that Wright doesn't sufficiently make clear that Hillary Clinton, like her sociopathic husband, is a puppet of the Zionist-infested capitalist ruling class. Thus the title of this article should have read something like this: "The Zionist infiltrated ruling class has selected Hillary Clinton to star in their next puppet show". The new project will definitely not be "Hillary Clinton's Project".
Corporate media's denial of the reality of the behind-the-scenes management of the US government by capitalist puppeteers is deliberate; but when alternative media follows this practice, it is a symptom of their immaturity and that of much of the left in the US. Of course, one must make allowances for some of these authors whose careers would likely be adversely impacted if they even alluded to this reality. But those who have escaped from the world of safe mainstream media and conventional thought such as Dan Wright have a responsibility to make this reality clear.
Otherwise most of the content of the article is very good.
