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.

Regime Change and Continuity of Agenda: Trump Adviser Now Chairs NED

Click here to access article by Joseph Thomas from New Eastern Outlook.

While the American people are so caught up in the daily media buzz about the new Trump administration, this author sees through the smoke and mirrors of corporate media reports and notices that nothing much is really changing regarding foreign policies. "The more things change (under capitalist class rule), the more they stay the same."
While supporters of recently elected US President Donald Trump believe steadfastly that among other things, his administration will role back what has been essentially a century of American expansionism worldwide through overt wars and more “covert” methods toward achieving “regime change,” by all metrics it appears such methods will only expand.

Not only do observers note continued subversive activities coordinated through local US embassies around the world since Trump’s presidency began, including across Southeast Asia as part of America’s continued attempts to isolate and contain China, but also movement within US agencies charged with organising and financing this subversion, such as the US State Department’s National Endowment for Democracy (NED).
So far I've seen little evidence that the Rockefeller segment of the US ruling class is imposing its will to have better relations with Russia in order to draw them away from China as I argued previously. However, it is still too soon to determine that this theory is invalid. Dan Glazebrook argues that Kissinger's rapprochement policies (Rockefeller faction) with Russia are still in effect in a recent article entitled "Michael Flynn may be gone but his Russia policy lives on" posted in the Middle East Eye
