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.

The role of the US and Nato in EU relations with China

Click here to access article by Manlio Dinucci from Voltaire Network.

In this article Dinucci offers a very insightful perspective on the US-led Empire's efforts to maintain and extend their dominance of the world since the collapse of the Soviet Union.
To maintain its supremacy, increasingly wavering, the US relies not only on the strength of its weapons [via NATO], but also weapons more efficient than “weapons” in the strict sense of the word.
