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.

False Reports In U.S. Media Suggest A Great Deception

Click here to access article by Bernhard from his blog Moon of Alabama

Bernhard spots another lie (fake news alert) that was published by the Empire's premier newspaper, and will likely be picked up by a number of other media throughout the USA. 
The New York Times is lying to its readers about the commitments of an adversarial state. It did not learn a single lesson from its fake reporting that led the Iraq War. It again furthers hostile aggression.
In a piece published today, In North Korea, Missile Bases Suggest a Great Deception, the paper lies about North Korea's commitments:
Although major media corporations always served the capitalist ruling class, The NY Times, The Washington Post, along with all major media have become thoroughly integrated into the Deep State (see my commentary here which explains the concept) that rules the capitalist Empire. They are now little more than propaganda platforms for the Deep State and its Empire.
