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.

We are being led by the crazed Deep State to our extinction

by Ron Horn

While our masters incessantly rant and rave about Trump as a puppet of Putin, the latter is busy warning people about the ever increasing probability that we could all be vaporized, incinerated, or wandering deliriously with radiation sickness from a nuclear war if leaders of nations don't sit down and negotiate new nuclear arms treaties.

America's expert on Russia, Stephen F. Cohen, agrees. But is anybody listening? The Russiagate "realities" and diversions created by our masters via their media corporations don't allow time for these voices.

But even Cohen, as erudite as he is, refuses to point to a self-serving, insane ruling class. He must know more than he is letting on about a hidden Deep State, where our masters are hiding, which is saturated with sick capitalists whose only concerns are more, that is, more profits and power over both the people of the world and the environment. Notice that Cohen comes close to doing this by alluding to this reality at 12:04m when he says: "I can't prove it, but one has to think logically: was this begun by somewhere high up in America by people who didn't want a pro-detente president?" But immediately, Chris Hedges, the good liberal-reformist that he is, diverted the discussion by pointing to John O. Brennan who has served in a number of secret spy agencies. Although it is likely that Brennan was involved, he is only an agent of the ruling capitalist Deep State. The latter always act through their unaccountable "security" spy agencies.

Yes, one "has to think logically" and there is a mountain of evidence (if one looks carefully) that there is a cabal of Deep State actors who have urged, since the well-connected Henry Luce of Time Magazine published his article entitled "American Century" in early 1941, that all the fascist oriented American capitalists come out of the isolationist woodwork where they were hiding and take control of the USA in order to build a world empire. They saw that the British Empire was threatened by the rising fascist power of Germany, Italy, and Japan, and saw the potential for the establishment of their own empire. And, as they say, the rest is history.

Capitalists in the Deep State are so driven by the obsessions of profit and power that they can't see that humans are only an irritating gnat that Mother Nature will soon dispose of, that is, if humans don't destroy themselves before Nature does.
