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.

The unavowable project for a pseudo-Kurdistan

 This French geopolitical analyst scores with this exposé of the latest ploys by members of the US Empire involving the use of lies, secret agreements, and co-optation to carve out a Kurdish state in Syria and Iraq to appeal to Turkish and Kurdish authorities while settling the Daesh terrorists mostly in Iraq's Anbar province presumably to continue their efforts to destabilize Syria.  

The latest NATO effort appears to be the Empire's response to Syria's request to Russia and Iran, and the latter's response, to help protect their country from the terrorist army of Daesh (ISIS) that is supported by the Empire and its medieval Arab allies.
- France and the United Kingdom have managed to make their public opinion believe that Resolution 2249 authorises them to intervene in Syria against Daesh. On this basis, they have obtained the authorisation of their parliaments to begin bombing, but without the authorisation of Syria.

- On the ground, they believe they can count on the Turkmen militias (supported by the Turkish army) and the Kurdish YPG (supported by Israël and the Regional Kurdish Government of Iraq).

- The aim of these intervention is not to eradicate Daesh because of its programme of ethnic cleansing, but to displace them to Al-Anbar, and to continue the ethnic cleansing, this time in Northern Syria, to create a pseudo-Kurdistan.
