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.

Washington's Dangerous War On Cash: What It's Really About

Click here to access a 57:05m interview with F. William Engdahl on Bonnie Faulner's Guns and Butter program posted on SoundCloud, a program from KPFA in Berkeley, California.

In the interview Engdahl, in addition to Häring in today's post, gives his views on India's withdrawal of some cash-notes from circulation, and then expands to other related topics that includes the following:
India withdraws 86% of the value of all currency in circulation; USAID; Project Catalyst; Global Innovation Exchange; Better Than Cash Alliance; Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation; UNICEF; UN Development Program; Mitre Corporation; the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FACTA); Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD); the larger global agenda of total control; ECB set up to favor Germany; Trade Czar Peter Navarro; US currency war aimed at destroying the Euro; US planned destruction of the Eurozone; glyphosate; fascism of EU bureaucracy in Brussels; assassination of Chairman of Deutsche Bank, Alfred Herrhausen; US emerging as the biggest tax haven in the world.
Engdahl gives some very important insights about how the leading US financial institutions are behind the drive to use economic weapons in order to maintain dominance over nations and people living in those nations controlled by the US-led Empire. It is important to understand that these financial institutions contain the most influential actors of the Empire's unaccountable and secretive deep state. They are sick people who are thoroughly addicted to profits and power, and unfortunately rule much of the world today.
