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.

Is the US Planning to Wage War on Russia and China? - Michel Chossudovsky
If you don't have time to listen to all of this very interesting interview, I advise that you listen to the last half of it starting at 29:05m. I specify this point because he reports that China is a leader in telecommunications, and specifically, in 5G technology. This comment lends much suspicion about the authenticity of the article I posted on January 8 which announced a protest drive against this technology.
Shortly thereafter, he addresses the subject contained in the title of this post with some very interesting and disturbing little-known information. I highly recommend this segment.
