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 more dangerous world is probably coming after the US election!

Click here to access article by Dimitris Konstantakopoulos from Defend Democracy Press

There are tons of bloggers warning about the evil prospects of a Hillary Clinton victory in the alternative media, and some about Donald Trump. This article from a website that boasts some of the leading prominent independent thinkers of the world offers the best analysis that I could find this morning. Whereas most bloggers take the US presidential election far too seriously, in my opinion, this writer occasionally goes below the surface to speculate about the always hidden agendas of our masters in the deep capitalist circles who rule our nation and much of the world (US Empire).
Bear in mind that we have been living internationally, especially since the supposed end of the Cold War, in a historic era of deception and virtual realities. And it could not be otherwise. The infinitesimal minorities of power, money and knowledge ruling our world cannot announce their program and the future they are preparing for us. If they did, they would provoke a revolution. They are also unable at this time to launch head-on confrontation with societies and nations. Conspiracies have existed throughout history, but now they are tending to become the norm. .... Classic political, social and geopolitical analysis is still the key to understanding social and international phenomena, but it must be supplemented by a deep and not always straightforward understanding of the real strategies in play.
