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.

Propaganda Wave Portends Invasion of Syria

Click here to access article by Tony Cartalucci from New Eastern Outlook

This is a followup piece to his June 26th article entitled "US To Begin Invasion of Syria" which I posted and commented on here. I tend to think that the Brookings' article was not an announcement, but more of a justification of what was already planned. As such, I think it too could be considered as a part of the "propaganda wave" in support of a more direct attack on Syria by Empire forces (American and British). In any case, Cartalucci provides updated evidence and cogent arguments that the plan is now in full operation.
It is clear that this premeditated and documented conspiracy has been fully implemented, manifesting itself as the “Islamic State” which is clearly being used both as a proxy military force with which to wage war against Western enemies, as well as a pretext for justifying Western military aggression around the world. It is also being used conveniently to maintain an iron grip at home via an increasingly Orwellian police state predicated on “fighting the threat of terrorism.”

As others have hinted at, the West is also intentionally promoting a strategy of tension to predictably divide the world’s population into two camps – those that back Western neo-liberalism, and those that back the medieval methods of ISIS and periphery ideologies. Those in the middle are intentionally marginalized by the vast Western media, and even in the alternative media, cognitive infiltration has helped mute the voices of reason and accelerate this global conflict.
