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.

Here is another American that is waking up to a number of realities hidden behind the smokescreen of American life as presented by ruling class ideological institutions--schools, media, entertainment, and churches. It is another rant, but that is what happens when people wake up and realize they have been lied to: they get mad.
Most people in America are waiting for something to happen. Most don’t know or don’t want to know what the real truth is. ...We only need to wake up a few more people. That is the next big thing.
