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 Truth About Donald Trump [The post has been removed--I don't know by whom.]
In the following interview with Icke he offers so many accurate insights about current major events--far beyond merely his views about Trump. He is also trying to use many other means of expressing his views mostly by directly talking to audiences across Britain, Canada, Europe, and the United States.
All that I know accurately about David Icke is that he has had an extensive career as a sports broadcaster and commentator in Britain. If you consult Wikipedia regarding him, you will find a major smear piece referring frequently to him as a "conspiracy theorist". While I have often used Wikipedia as an accurate source reference, I know that anyone can enter a piece on this website and have it posted by meeting certain standards of the managers of the website. This involves mostly the furnishing of documentation for the contents. Clearly whoever posted this entry had major motivations to undermine the views of Icke. Look at the length of it! You would think that Icke was a major world figure. But the truthful views expressed by Icke are a major threat to the Empire's fake version of reality as expressed in their corporations' media.
I urge you to listen to the entire 54:41m interview and decide for yourself, as an independent, informed, and critical thinker, if he knows what he is talking about. I think you will agree that the deep state that governs the Empire desperately need to prevent his views from being heard or taken seriously in order to superimpose their ongoing narrative about the major realities of today's world.
On the other hand, this could be a brilliant piece of "psyop" propaganda--see the two comments that follow this post.
