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.

Confirmed: FBI Introduced Florida Shooter to "Informants"

Click here to access article by Tony Cartalucci from Land Destroyer Report.

This is a followup report on yesterday's posting entitled "US Law Enforcement Knew Florida Shooter BEFORE Shooting" by Cartalucci. Using FBI documents and the Intercept's investigations, he goes into some detail how the FBI uses their own trained "informants" to pose as members of a terrorist organization and among their duties...
...includes providing and training suspects in the use of real explosives, providing suspects with arsenals of weapons precisely like those used in the recent shooting in Orlando Florida, and encouraging suspects to adopt "radical ideology" over the course of the investigation. Suspects are given the false impression that they are working on behalf of terrorist organizations like Al Qaeda or the self-proclaimed "Islamic State," often cultivating delusions of grandeur among otherwise mentally ill suspects.
