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.

The FBI Boston-Chechnya charade

Click here to access article by Pepe Escobar from Asia Times Online.
The FBI narrative includes exploits worthy of the Die Hard franchise, such as Dzhokhar running over his brother Tamerlan’s body - enveloped in a suicide vest - in a stolen SUV, and crashing a massive police barricade.
It would be so convenient to pigeonhole the Tsarnaev brothers as Chechen terrorists. But that’s not the case.
I also recommend this article entitled "‘Boston Bombers’ Tsarnaev brothers: Where the dots won't connect" from RT.

And, also this article by Matthew Stevenson in NYTimes eXaminer entitled "Reichstag Smoke and Mirrors in Boston" in which the author raises numerous questions and doubts about the official story.
