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.

Mid-2017 US status: Trump joins War Criminals invading Syria, threatening Iran, pushing WW3.
Like many posts on this blog, one is overwhelmed with links to supporting documents. I have posted a lot of the material before, but I found some new solid information from different sources to reveal the endless lies told to us by our government leaders and pundits and newscasters employed by the ruling class's media corporations.
Having stated that, I do not agree with every opinion expressed in this post. For example, Kevin O'Keefe argues in an otherwise excellent video talk that a military coup should happen. I can overlook that remark because of his military background. He otherwise speaks to the massive deceptions of our masters who really run this country whom he correctly identifies, and the Zionist influence which they have succumbed to simply because they and the Zionists share the same goal of global hegemony. However, the root cause is the system of capitalism which in its advanced stage reveals what this class-based system wants--total domination over the people and the Earth. Only when we end the system will we know peace and harmony with nature.
The world is getting more dangerous by the day, and our masters are facing increasing defeats of their nefarious agendas. They appear to be getting more unstable and may go to drastic measures to insure their dominance. Only an informed people has any hope of stopping them from resorting to extreme measures. If you are already familiar with this material, I suggest you send the post to people who remain dupes of our ruling class and their media.
