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.

Endless War Has Been Normalized And Everyone Is Crazy
After arguing that we are now in a state of endless war, she asks why and how this came about. But she only attributes this to our trusting childhood development being dependent on adult guidance.
I have a much better explanation for the normalization of endless war. The ambitious false-flag project on 9/11 (see this and/or this for transcript) was vitally important for our Deep State masters in order to turn around our largely anti-imperialist attitudes prior to this event. They succeeded marvelously to turn adults living in the Empire into raving enthusiasts for striking anybody anywhere that could be identified by our masters as "terrorists" or supporting terrorism. Having controlled what adults thought about this event, they knew that the adults would tell their children the same fabricated, false-flag type of story.
