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

Click here to access article by Patrice P. Greanville from The Greanville Post. (A wonderful little article and introduction to some of his posts.)
The Battle of Communications between antiwar anti-imperialist media and the monstrous Machine of Disinformation protecting the empire, misleadingly cloaked in the sanctimonious garb of a fight against Fake News, is clearly sharpening as major corporate media like the abject Washington Post are openly leading the underhanded and cowardly attack on Free Speech while pretending to be concerned about the nonexistent purity of American electoral processes and the truthfulness of what the American public is exposed to.
