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.

Interview with Philosopher of Science Dr. James Henry Fetzer

Click here to access article in which Christof Lehmann interviews Dr. Jim Fetzer from Veterans Today.

Fetzer addresses a variety of hot topics such as the assassination of John Kennedy, 9/11 attack, anthrax attacks on US senators, etc, to support his thesis:
The control of information is cheaper and more effective than the use of standing armies, which makes it the preferred method of controlling a nation’s population. But other techniques are always available, as necessary and appropriate [such as instilling fear in the population]. ...The parallels with the rise of The Third Reich are both astounding and disturbing. I am sorry to say that we live in an Orwellian world where black is white, false is true, and the good are evil. We live in dangerous times.
