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.

Jimmy Dore: “…They’re not outraged at the terrorist butcher who lured children with food, then blew them up?” #West’s ‘rebels’ slaughter #Foua #Kafraya children
After this independent Canadian journalist clarifies all the groups which are included in the terrorist armies funded, organized, and trained by the US, Saudi Arabia and their Persian Gulf allies like Qatar, and Israel, she praises and introduces an excellent 19:11m video of a commentary by Jimmy Dore on his show that castigates media corporations for their reports on the latest terrorist incident in Syra, and in general about events in the region. Jimmy Dore provides a prime example of how media corporations issue fake news about real terrorist events in order to hide America's complicity in these crimes.
