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.

Terrorism and Turmoil: US Containment of China

Click here to access article by Tony Cartalucci from Land Destroyer Report. 

Cartalucci continues his examination of the Empire's use of NGOs as a Trojan Horse to stir up unrest and opposition to enemies. Of course, one of the designated enemies is China which the directors of the Empire see as a competitor who pose a threat to their hegemony over the world. 

Anyway, we are now witnessing huge demonstrations in Hong Kong over the right to select candidates for political office: local capitalist oligarchs or capitalist members of China's "Communist Party". I'm sure the controllers of the NGO Trojan Horses couldn't care less about the substance of the issue, they just want to stir up opposition and thus weaken China's central government--the old "divide and conquer" strategy in its new 21st century's version.

Cartalucci first delves into the history of this containment strategy followed by some interesting details about which NGOs are serving the Empire's strategy in China and are behind the current protests. The analysis leads him to this conclusion:
For the mobs of "Occupy Central," many have good intentions, but the leadership is knowingly in league with foreign interests seeking to subvert, divide, and destroy the Chinese people - not unlike what China had suffered at the hands of European powers in the 1800's to early 1900's.
