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.

NED's Regime Change Tsar Eyes Czech Republic

Click here to access article by Daniel McAdams from Ron Paul Institute.

McAdams examines one of the US's most effective subversive organizations: the tax-supported National Endowment for Democracy and why the Czech Republic may be the next target of its machinations.
Gershman, a former Trotskyite, has been president-for-life of that organization [National Endowment for Democracy (NED)]. He overthrows elected governments overseas, but has never been elected to any office himself.

Perpetually flush with cash and ever on the lookout for a regime to change, when one catches the eye of Carl Gershman, trouble is sure to follow.

That is why the Czech Republic had better watch out.

Yesterday, Gershman took to the Washington Post to sound the alarm over Czech President Milos Zeman.
