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.

What is not explained the chanting in the background which almost put a stop midway in this speaker's address. A note following the post from "Kat Kan" offered this explanation: "The people inexplicably allowed onto the floor of their parliament to chant slogans when a deputy is speaking look like Maidan types already."
