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 Bogus ‘Humanitarian’ War on Serbia

Click here to access article by John Pilger from ConsortiumNews.

The lies of the Empire will inevitably be revealed, but often only many years later. And then when we finally learn the true story of their crimes, corporate media provides very little coverage. Slowly the deceptions about 9/11 are being reported in alternative media while corporate media totally ignores such reports. 

Pilger provides an accurate history of the dissolution of Yugoslavia by the Empire which became a model strategy used to destabilize other countries. 
This was the model for Washington’s subsequent invasions of Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and, by stealth, Syria. All qualify as “paramount crimes” under the Nuremberg standard; all depended on media propaganda. [my emphasis]
