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.

George Soros: Anti -Syria Campaign Impresario

Click here to access article by Vanessa Beeley from her blog The Wall Will Fall

Beeley in this rather lengthy article launches a devastating attack on Western media's anti-Syrian coverage by focusing on their recent Madaya propaganda reports (I personally missed them) with particular emphasis on BBC coverage which have been picked up by many other Western TV stations (for example, see this). She traces much of this propaganda to the influence of George Soros and his funding of various NGOs. She views such propaganda as an effort to open up unfriendly governments to opposition groups that are oriented and often funded by various Western foundations.
It explains perfectly the funding of the "people power", "time for change" campaigns that run in synch with any regional or national schisms that are then piggybacked by imported or locally fostered opposition movements to propel the Imperialist friendly movements towards regime change. [I supplied the quotes]

Of course there is never any intention from the behind- the- scenes- string- pullers of allowing the much acclaimed people power.  The goal is the now familiar power vacuum to be filled by an Imperialist compatible ruling entity that will ensure the completion of Empire’s hostile corporate take over bid.
