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.

Fake News Alert: CNN Finally Admits White Helmets Staged Fake Video

Click here to access article by Tony Cartalucci from Land Destroyer Report.

Without the diligence of alternative sources and investigative journalists to ascertain the truth in a time when corporate produced fake news is everywhere, this piece about fake news would never have surfaced and CNN would not have admitted the videos as fake and the White Helmets would never have apologized for their contrived videos. 

But this is no mere exception to the daily disinformation and warped views from corporate media that shape how ordinary people think about their world. In mainstream media we see such scenes daily that portray the destruction of hospitals and horrific scenes of wounded infants and civilians all supposedly caused by the Syrian or Russian airplanes. Such fake scenes fit well into the US Empire's propaganda war against Syria with an immediate objective of dismembering Syria with no-fly zones, and ultimately replacing the Assad government with a regime that serves Empire interests.  

I also highly recommend an article posted by a genuine Swedish-based human rights website which is challenging Sweden's ruling class entitled "Analysis: Why Sweden is giving an award to the ‘White Helmets’?".
