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.

CBS This Morning: the daily brainwash

Click here to access article from The Greanville Post.

I watched with disgust this report in last night's evening news. The author is absolutely correct when he/she stated "There are no real journalist[s] on the corporate media any more ....". They may have degrees in journalism, but they serve as well-paid agents for the ruling class's propaganda apparatus. Fake news reports are now becoming a daily staple of media corporations.
Here’s CBS again doing its usual job of disinforming and under-reporting by using severely compromised, scandalously biased or ignorant sources, while never offering their huge megaphone to anyone with a scintilla of “dissident truth” or actual knowledge about the topics they supposedly cover.  So the nation and the world are inching toward a possible deadly confrontation for countless people, who do you call as an expert witness, a guy who has been the Democrats/CIA point man stoking the fires of Russiagate, none other than California Rep. Adam Schiff, a Democrat who also happens to boast impeccable Neocon/Zionist credentials.
