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.

Muslim Brotherhood are Western Proxies

Click here to access article by Tony Cartalucci from his blog Land Destroyer Report. 

The author provides some eye-opening evidence of how the Muslim Brotherhood has been groomed for years to serve the interests of the Empire. However, he and others go a bit too far in alleging that the Arab Spring was all a plot or conspiracy by Western interests. Political operatives of the Empire are always looking for alternative players on their behalf in case things go wrong with their primary actors. It is the same here in the US. Financial and corporate interests back both the Democrats and the Republicans, not only to create the illusion of choice and "democracy", but to insure that whatever goes wrong with one party in office, the same basic policies can be pursued with the other party.
