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 Sophisticated Attacks of 9-11

Click here to access article by F. William Engdahl from Katehon

Engdahl supplies a brief commentary on what he thinks is the significance of 9/11.
The events of September 11th, 2001, dealing with the attacks on two towers of the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, created the basis for a police-state transformation in the United States. It was created through an atmosphere of fear and the passage of very anti-constitutional laws, such as the “homeland security act”, which was supposed to be only a temporary measure. The war on terror, that President George W. Bush declared, referred to as a new holy crusade, has been used by the Pentagon to create a worldwide network of terror.
