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.

Some predictions about the latest ruling class strategies to get rid of Trump

by Ron Horn

I occasionally watch mainstream media to find out what our capitalist masters are saying to Americans. It is no secret to anyone paying attention that our masters want to get rid of Trump. It appears to me that their preferred way is to impeach and remove him from his office, and they need a Democratic Party majority in Congress to do this. (They wouldn't hesitate to assassinate him, like Jack Kennedy and his brother Robert if he was not presently useful for their purposes.) Hence, they are pursuing various strategies to elect Democratic (especially women because they are currently fashionable) candidates in the midterm elections scheduled for next month. Although I, or anyone, cannot know for certain, some of the latest strategies seem so obvious to me that I simply can't resist to point them out as methods to attain the removal of Trump by the ruling class . 

In addition to the gross bias of mainstream media against Trump, I am referring to the current semi-crash in the stock market and the latest mail-bombs that Democratic leaders have received in the past few days. For me, these seem such obvious attempts to have Democratic candidates elected in the November elections. Thus, I predict two things will happen: the stock market, although the economy rests on very tenuous or unstable foundations, it will pick up after the elections because our masters have a great deal of control over it; secondly, the FBI will never solve who was sending these mail-bombs simply because agents employed by our masters did it. (Need I predict that our masters will succeed in their attempt to elect a majority of Democrats?) So stay tuned and aware to find out if these are just wacky notions of some disgruntled, leftist blogger. I will again revisit these predictions on November 15th to evaluate my predictions. (And, as ever, I welcome comments.)
