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 Political Spectrum
This featured post has an excellent simple graphic that explains so much about the narrow political spectrum that is permitted by Empire media directors.
Thus far I am impressed with this online news service that highlights important articles that corporate media ignores in favor of their propaganda pieces. Although one must forever guard against trusting any one source of information, some of you might consider joining this news service as another antidote to the virus of ruling class's Orwellian propaganda that like a cancer can metastasize and consume your soul.
