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.

Saudi ‘Gift’ to Hide its Terror Hand
There have been many horrific terrorist events in the past month in Iraq, Russia, and Lebanon, and in the past decade in the Middle East, Eurasia, and Russia. Evidence keeps accumulating to indicate that the Saudi Kingdom is behind them with the US Empire and Israel often complicit in these crimes. Remember also that there was significant involvement in 9/11 by Saudi citizens.
See this, this, this, this, this, and this for more information about the evidence.
See this for the latest update on the "gift". This is another illustration of how Saudi oil money collaborates with Western weapons manufacturers to sow chaos in the Middle East.
