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.

If You're a Wahhabi Nutcase, You Will be Offered a Job by a Western Intelligence Service

This 3:02 video refers, of course, to the beheading of a British soldier in the Woolwich section of London. The video creator, Eretz Zen, put together video footage from PressTV, BBC, and RT to provide a much more revealing context to the gory incident. In this horrifying incident we see an attempt to recruit a terrorist to serve the Empire, only this time it backfired. But this is no problem for Empire media directors. They frame the incident as a illustration of barbaric Muslims terrorizing the West.

One of the two Woolwich attackers, Michael Adebolajo, was seen as a follower of Wahhabi extremist radical cleric Anjem Choudary, and was highly influenced by Salafi hate preacher Omar Bakri, a cleric that teaches body mutilation and violence.
In a recent interview with Adebolajo's close friend, Abu Nusaybah, he revealed that the Woolwich attacker was harassed by MI5, the British Security Service. He also mentioned that MI5 ended up offering Adebolajo a job with the agency. After finishing the interview, he was arrested by MI5.
