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.

In bed with Bibi

Click here to access article by Gilad Atzmon from Intrepid Report
We call on people of the world to pressure the Syrian regime to end its oppression of and war on the Syrian people.
I was shocked by the names Atzmon cited who signed on to such a statement and immediately looked for documented evidence for this charge. It didn't take long. The author put it front and center in the article. So, why haven't I seen any similar views from the names he cited published in any source up to now? Have they been too embarrassed to express them? 

There are times when one must face a situation where both parties in a conflict are engaging in despicable acts, but in this conflict these "progressives" by default are supporting the most dangerous force in the world today: the Empire and its Zionist allies who are engaging in the most heinous acts in their attempt to destroy another nation.
