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.

Near Deadly Political Gas Attack On Americans

Excerpt from an article by Frank Scott posted in The Greanville Post.

I particularly was impressed by the last paragraph in this article which I am quoting below:
We need to learn more about the actual conditions in the lives of people in other places but we first need to fully understand our own homeland and what our rulers do to the rest of the world in our name, while keeping us in the dark about reality. As in Syria, Yemen, Iraq, Libya, Palestine and Ukraine, to mention only a few places where we murder, maim and prevent social justice and democracy while piously extolling their virtues. They can only continue to do that if we continue to let them, and inspiration can come from actually learning what people in other nations have achieved, against seemingly impossible odds, to enable us to not only believe in creation of a better world, but actually bring it from theoretical dream to practical reality. That means clearing the poisoned political gas filling our heads and analyzing reactionary rule in order to replace it with revolutionary democracy. Soon. Like now.
Joseph Werner: Diana of Ephesus as allegory of Nature, c. 1680

To paraphrase a famous quote by American revolutionary Patrick Henry, now is the time for all good men and women to come to the aid of their country and humans throughout the world. To do this we must seek the truth which has become a monumental task in a world of lies and deceptions spread by our insane masters. The latter who control much of the world are headed for their demise and they are taking us with them. Shall we, their subjects, offer no resistance like sheep going to the slaughterhouse; or will we as thinking humans refuse to be guided by their fakery and poison gas filling our heads; and shall we take from them the reins of power and affirm life, and stop them from exploiting us and abusing other humans, and, most of all, our Mother Nature? You must make the most important decision of your life, a decision which is probably the most important that humans have ever been confronted with: "To be or not to be."
