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.

Humanity at Risk

Click here to access article by Stephen Lendman from The Greanville Post.

Referring to Einstein's warning back in 1946: "The unleashed power of the atom has changed everything save our modes of thinking, and thus we drift toward unparalleled catastrophe.", he writes:
Neocons in Washington represent the greatest threat to life on earth. If war against Russia or China is launched with nuclear weapons, Einstein’s dark prediction could become reality.

They’ll be no turning back. Extinction may follow or conditions so devastating for survivors they’ll wish they were dead – anything to end their unbearable suffering.
