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.

A warmonger, a racist and a colonial apologist…

Click here to access article from Crimes of Britain.

The author introduces us to the new Prime Minister of Britain, and the headline says it all. It's clear that she will be a perfect fit for head of one the components of the US-led Empire.
On the 13th July 2016 David Cameron stepped down as leader of Britain. Theresa May is now Prime Minister. She voted for the Anglo-American invasion of Iraq in 2003, for the deployment of more British troops to Afghanistan in 2010, the destruction of Libya in 2011 which created a safe haven for death squads in the region and most recently for RAF airstrikes on Syria. She has reshuffled the British cabinet, appointing well known racist bigot Boris Johnson as ‘Foreign Secretary’ and denier of colonial crimes Liam Fox as ‘Secretary of State for International Trade’.
