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.

Posts that I especially recommend today: Sunday, October 4, 2020

  • Truth Seeker by Jim Meehan MD from his website which apparently is being updated. (Note: Meehan's covid-19 website challenges many of the conventional beliefs about the pandemic spread by media corporations and supported by government health authorities such as the wearing of masks, lockdowns, vaccinations, etc. One thing he does agree with them regarding the prevention of covid-19 is the benefits of social distancing. Dr. Meehan often points to Big Pharma and their huge profits as the cause of their recommendations. Kate Porter of Children's Health Defense apparently agrees with him. I have no health credentials, but I find his assembling of scientific evidence compelling in support of his challenges. In the absence of reliable information regarding the illness, we as individuals must decide for ourselves regarding measures to maintain our health.)
  • We Are Being Lied To! Here Is How… by Spiro Skouras from Activist Post. (My reaction: I've read numerous articles that the PCR test produced a substantial number of false positives. Skouras provides details on the fallibility of PCR test. Listening to media corporations and government health authorities, the accuracy of the PCR test is a fact, and often the positive results are added to their reports on covid-19 "cases".)
