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.

A Bird’s Eye View of Contrived Terror – Part I. A Preview

Click here to access article by Moti Nissani from nsnbc international. (Note: I am normally reluctant about posting articles promising future articles on a subject no matter how promising they look. However, I was so impressed with his introduction which offered a highly condensed version of the future articles that I decided to post it.)

In this series the author is making a critically important attempt to understand what is at stake in the ongoing struggle to set upright an "upside-down world" that has been created and perpetuated by the "Syndicate" (=international bankers).
  • Conclusively show that 21st century terror is traceable, for the most part, to the Syndicate (acting in part through its principal outposts in Washington DC, London, and Jerusalem),
  •  Convince us that we live in an upside-down world,
  • Reverse our expectations—we will be shocked and surprised if the Syndicate, just once, serves the interests of humanity as a whole—not when it doesn’t.
  •  Divert our precious resources from the Syndicate’s daily crimes to the question and actions whose importance supersedes all others: How can we save humanity and remove this Syndicate from power?
