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’s Behind Ukraine’s Secret Weapons Deal with UAE
This is another in the endless stream of bad news. Based on a report issued by a US media corporation, the Empire through its vassals in the Middle East is preparing to strengthen their Ukraine puppet's military in order to launch another war against eastern Ukraine. This is another major piece of evidence that the latest ceasefire was only agreed to by the Kiev regime because they were losing the war. Fascists like the Ukraine puppets, who came to power with the violent overthrow of the elected government, only believe in domination and control of societies through violence or the threat of violence.
The directors of the Empire are engaging in a very high risk strategy to draw Russia into the conflict (their propaganda already claim this) in a plan to effect a change of regime in Russia into one that takes orders from the Empire. Russia and its people will never come under the domination of anyone. So, the stage is set for one disaster after another as the Empire directors pursue this mad policy.
I recommend also an article from World Socialist Web Site entitled "Pentagon provocation on Russia’s border".
