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.

  • What we're told about ISIS is a lie (full show) reported by Michele Greenstein on the Rick Sanchez program from RT. Although guest-speakers on this program engage in rapid-fire delivery of their comments, Greenstein focuses on the Deep State and its propaganda organs, and as such I view the first 20:10 minutes as essential viewing.
