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.

  • US exports covert ‘Syria model’ of permanent war (Full show) from RT. "Rick Sanchez reports on the covert operations against Syrian President Bashar Assad, orchestrated by the CIA and Saudi Arabia, which led to the creation of Islamic State and caused 500,000 deaths and displaced 10 million people. He explains how the US government can maintain perpetual war only by routinely misinforming the public. Then RT America’s Michele Greenstein and RT producer Dr. Enrique Riviera join to discuss the US hand in fomenting unrest and upheaval in Hong Kong and Bolivia. The Federal Reserve has given another $112 billion to Wall Street. Hardly a sign of a 'thriving economy.' David Stockman, former budget director for President Ronald Reagan and author of 'Peak Trump: The Undrainable Swamp and the Fantasy of MAGA' joins Rick Sanchez to share his insights. [And] RT America's Faran Fronczak joins Rick Sanchez to discuss Project Nightingale, a secret project to give Google access to the medical records of millions." (To 24:27m)

The Coup in Bolivia:
  • President Morales Calls Out U.S. Foreign Policy as Trump Listens in UN Security Council Meeting, uploaded onto YouTube by Representative Press. (Note: especially watch until 6:25m.) I have a hunch that this was when the US/Anglo/Zionist Empire decided to get rid of Morales because he spoke too much truth in front of the Security Council of the United Nations--they wouldn't want to be embarrassed any further by Morales or anybody who speaks the truth. The same applies to independent journalists and real whistleblowers.
