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.

Remembering the USS Liberty

Click here if you wish to access a 27:37m video from RT. Participants on the show feature Phillip Nelson author of Remember the Liberty, ex-marine and political analyst Ken O'Keefe, and Daniel McAdams of the Ron Paul Institute.

Once again I am presenting information that media corporations will not even touch indirectly. This is one of the most dramatic examples of our ruling class's effort to censor information that directly exposes criminal actions by our government officials in collusion with Zionist leaders in Israel. Even 50 years after the tragic and criminal event, the vast majority of Americans still do not know anything about it. Hopefully with this post a relatively few more Americans will have knowledge of it.

You can learn more about this war crime and treasonous behavior of our leaders in various books: the one I read entitled Assault on the Liberty by James Ennes, Remember the Liberty by Phillip Nelson (who is featured on the show), Operation Cyanide: How the Bombing of the USS Liberty Nearly Caused World War Three by Peter Hounam, and in dvd entitled USS Liberty Dead in the water directed by Christopher Mitchell. I notice that there are videos on YouTube that you can also access such as the BBC production entitled "USS Liberty: Dead In The Water". I have only read Ennes's book about the incident.
