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.
—Frances Moore Lappé, excerpt from Time for Progressives to Grow Up

Posts that I especially recommend today: Friday, November 20, 2020

  • The SPARS Pandemic of 2025: Echo Chambers and Vaccine Opposition by Derrick Broze from The Last American Vagabond.  (Note: The author provides us with examples of actual "games" that our ruling class run to anticipate problems, and solutions to these problems. One example: "In 2017, the Johns Hopkins Center of Health Security ran a simulation of a coronavirus pandemic known as SPARS. What can we learn from this exercise?")
  • The Next Crisis? from Computing Forever channel on YouTube. (Note: I don't want to spread awful rumors, but our masters in the transnational capitalist Deep State are already talking about another crisis.)
  • The Google Archipelago by Jimmie Moglia from "The Saker blog". My reaction: I regard the author's statement that "Zionist “elder brothers in the Abrahamic faith” own and control 90% or thereabouts of all communication media, printed, Hollywood, academia, radio-TV and Internet." as questionable, and he doesn't provide any documentation for it. It seems to me that transnational capitalists are "equal opportunity employers".
