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.

US Regime Change in Malaysia: Bersih 5
It is so refreshing to read political analysis by Cartalucci. In contrast to corporate sponsored pundits and "experts" who use fake news and opinions that are informed by Empire propaganda, false-flag events, PSYOP events, he accesses statements by authors in the deep capitalist state (our masters refer to them as "think tanks") such as the Council on Foreign Relations to support his arguments, and in addition, seeks out information about front organizations (NGOs that frequently pretend to advocate "human rights") that the US Empire uses to overthrow or harass governments that resist the policies of the Empire. As you can see, the directors of this Empire rely to a considerable extent on fakery, but this is always backed up by the threat of military force and frequently used when fakery fails.
In this piece he goes a long way to uncover various operations of the Empire that is usually referred to by our masters as a "pivot to Asia", but is designed to encircle and contain China with hostile governments. Here he provides current details of these operations in Malaysia, Thailand, and Myanmar (Burma).
