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.

General note: I was late posting articles today because the internet crashed in my area for several hours this morning. Because of this incident, I didn't complete the list of posts that I consider credible.

  • Britain’s Class War on Children by Australian journalist John Pilger from CounterPunch. My only criticism is the title. I know, as any good journalist reports, that he was only reporting about what he knows. But, the British children are not alone. This is true of most of the world's children because the directors of the US/Anglo/Zionist Empire have been able to corrupt the UN's health agency (WHO), and have managed to inflict their power on many, if not most, children of the world.
  • Corporate-branded activism from Winter Oak (British and mostly anarchist website). (Note: Learn how wealthy people and subversive organizations takeover non-profit progressive organizations in Britain and Europe.) My reaction: I think such agents use their wealth to initially fund and then takeover such organizations worldwide.
  • The New Norm: Government Lawbreaking from TruePublica, a British website. My reaction: This is an excellent piece of journalism supported by interesting documentation about the British government trying to hide it's dirty secrets from the public. Britain is, of course, a integral part of the US/Anglo/Zionist Empire.
[Because of censorship and government secrecy, world workers] have suffered many defeats, including perhaps the greatest one: being deprived of the ideas needed to make revolutionary change. And today it seems to be a race between the destructive tendencies of the capitalist system in charge of the world economy with no greater motivation than an endless stream of profits for which it must embrace endless war, environmental destruction, and the continued enslavement of labor. If left unchecked the capitalist mode of production will go on to the detriment and perhaps even the extinction of the human race. [my insertion]
My reaction: But Marx was wrong about one thing: the inevitability of workers to succeed in overcoming the power of capitalists. We, as a human species along with most others, will go extinct because of environmental destruction long before this will happen.

  • The Pentagon and the CIA Are in Charge of Foreign Policy by Jacob G. Hornberger from The Future of Freedom (Note: This is an obvious libertarian organization, and I don't agree with its principles, but any author can be right some of the time. On this subject he is 100% right--in fact, I would say that the secretive, unaccountable CIA and their bosses in the Deep State control our government. Our "democracy" is totally fake.)   
  • The Great Pretext…for Dystopia by Diana Johnstone from The Unz Review. My reaction: She does a good job describing the implications of Schwab's new governance (because the remarks so far by Schwab about the Great Reset is largely propaganda), but fails on the visceral opposition by capitalists to any hint of real democracy.

  • The Correct Response To “Give Biden A Chance”: Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix by Caitlin Johnstone from her weblog. My reaction follows: I especially like the following two paragraphs which illustrate so much about what is happening to people who reside within the US/Anglo/Zionist Empire, and Johnstone lives in Australia which is an integral part of the Empire. 

    When I started this gig I learned very early on that the articles which get the most shares are ones which are appealing to one of America’s two mainstream political factions. Everyone who gets into any kind of media related to US politics receives this same message. Most don’t reject the temptation.

    I was given a natural incentive to go mainstream partisan; no plutocratic funding or CIA infiltration required. The partisan dynamic is just that strong, which is why so many media figures become Dem shills or doofy Trumpers instead of nonpartisan free thinkers. There’s so much energy feeding into the partisan dynamic that people can float whole media careers on it very easily. A lot of the information distortion you see is no more complex or conspiratorial than that.
Our masters, the billionaires who own and control the country, are trying to divide us into two opposing and combative camps while spreading fear of the monster covid-19 virus. They will entice some of us with comfortable careers if we play along with their agendas to divide us by taking over rather progressive sources of information like Wikipedia and worker associated political parties like the Democratic Party. They use the latter type of organizations to spread their agendas of fear, disinformation, and their self-serving propaganda. At some point our masters in the core ruling class will come to our rescue and "restore" order, their order, to the chaos and fear that is spreading throughout their empire. Then "peace" and "harmony", their peace and harmony, will reign over this land where thought control and surveillance is everywhere to ensure their prosperity and power among hordes of poverty stricken people.
  • How To Be More Obedient featuring JP Sears (from his channel via YouTube) satirically instructing us on "how to be more obedient".
  • AOC Gaslights For Democrats Over COVID Bail-Out. This 17:14m video (via YouTube) features Jimmy Dore of The Jimmy Core Show informing Americans on the political services that mostly Democrats are providing for Wall Street and the rich while forgetting the poor.

  • Dominion refusal to attend hearing is globalists throwing down the gauntlet [Video] by Seraphim Hanisch from The Duran. This is a best post. (Note: There is so much content in this article that I haven't the time yet to access all of it. I especially want to direct you to the video--while you are still allowed by YouTube (Google owns YouTube) to access it (unfortunately, it was taken down before I posted my articles). In the process of a few minutes, I discovered that Dr Buttar's website has been already severely edited by YouTube. I don't have the technology expertise to download "TheDeenShow #794" in this article, but I urge people, who have these skills, to download it (too late!) and post the video on independent websites such as Bitchute.)
 Meanwhile, I direct you to this quote and my response:
This is a digression, but let me finish it. Honestly, even though I write about this, I am still reticent to buy the whole package about Fauci and Dr Buttar, so, you who read this now have my own full disclosure. To complete it, I think there is something not right about this story, and I am definitely convinced that the COVID virus is being used by globalist elites because it is useful to their plans. As to whether or not they triggered it, I still have a hard time believing that people in our day crave power to the point of killing hundreds of thousands of people as “collateral damage” or worse, “a case of the means being justified by the ends.” You, Dear Reader, will also have to decide this.
My reaction: I haven't listened to the part about Fauci and Dr. Buttar, but I am convinced that the ruling capitalist classes of various nations are perfectly capable of such horrible crimes. Their record demonstrates this. And because they own, and thus control, everything of value, they will continue to get away with these abominable crimes until natural forces get rid of the human species.
  • They think you're stupid.  By satirist Paul Joseph Watson on his YouTube channel. (Note: Watson is obviously a Brit expressing satire against the covid-19 policies of the English ruling capitalist class. Wikipedia has painted him as the worst type of right-wing human being. This is another example of ruling capitalist classes using unaccountable "intelligence" services to infiltrate progressive organizations and subvert them into serving their fascist agendas. I doubt that he will have any trouble posting his YouTube videos. He may be right-wing, but we need to listen to all credible views instead of censoring them.
Watson is obviously wrong about ridiculing the Great Reset that was announced recently by Klaus Schwab, head of the World Economic Forum, which is an unelected ruling capitalist class elite organization of the US/Anglo/Zionist Empire. Watson is correct when he says that the Great Reset is only a conspiracy theory, but conspiracy theories of our masters are what they have planned for us, and they will attempt to carry them out. So his ridicule works to a limited extent: to ridicule their propaganda about the supposed benefits to humans under their command. However, they are serious in their commitments to introduce more self-serving events like requiring all citizens to have vaccinations to travel abroad, the introduction of digital money, and other measures which will reduce populations ("useless eaters") and increase their surveillance and control over us. 
Thus far, we have been experiencing only mild restrictions to our civil liberties, but their actual plans will undoubtedly be more serious crimes against humanity in sharp contrast to their propaganda. We are already witnessing the devastating impacts upon poor people, small businessmen, and the gig economy. So their "conspiracy theories" are our reality in the future.
Because people are a lot more likely to click, read and share information which validates their pre-existing opinions and follow people who do the same, social media is notorious for the way it creates tightly insulated echo chambers which masturbate our confirmation bias and hide any information which might cause us cognitive dissonance by contradicting it. Whole media careers were built on this phenomenon during the years of Russiagate hysteria, and we see it play out in spheres from imperialism to Covid-19 commentary to economic policy.
To my foreign readers: Don't blame ordinary Americans for being so misled and ignorant about American and world political issues. They have been subject to unrelenting capitalist propaganda by the American ruling class for the past 75 years!
General Note: I ran out of time and energy to complete my 50+ websites to look for recommendations of credible articles from sources that are independent. Here are the websites that I did not get to:

  • James Corbett Explains The Great Reset on The Highwire from his weblog The Corbett Report in which he explains to Del Bigtree, a troubled ordinary person (from Colorado, and has a weblog) who expresses worries of his own about the Great Reset that powerful figures have planned for us. My reaction: Notice that Corbett, the outspoken anarchist, does not point fingers at government authorities, but powerful transnational capitalist figures. Apparently he doesn't know that government authorities are just tools controlled by ruling capitalist classes. Corbett, the anarchist, espouses "decentralization" but without taking away the concentration of private ownership of the economy.

  • GLENN GREENWALD on The Media Elite! on The Jimmy Dore Show. (Note: Greenwald answers piercing questions from Dore about his quarrel with the Intercept, and the pressures put on journalists who try to do honest reports.)
  • GLENN GREENWALD Calls Out AOC's Fake Progressiveness posted on The Jimmy Dore Show. This is a best post. (Note: "AOC" stands for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. In this fascinating teleconferencing discussion (38:42m), Dore begins asking Greenwald some probing questions about censorship in the broadcasts owned by most media corporations, and Greenwald offers some fascinating and sophisticated insights not only about censorship, but other political subjects in plain everyday language that ordinary people use and understand.)
  • False Flags and the Dawn of Bioterrorism featuring James Corbett explaining what is meant about the expression "false flag attack", the use of terrorism and recent forms of bio-terrorism as a false flag attacks. Posted on his weblog The Corbett Report. (Note: The US was criticized for using bio-terrorism, which was thoroughly covered up, in the Korean War. Read This Must Be the Place by Dave Chaddock.)
  • Anthrax To COVID: The Ongoing Anthrax Deception That Created The BioSecurity State & COVID-19 featuring Ryan CristiĆ”n of The Last American Vagabond conducting a 52:13m interview with "David Meiswinkle, President Executive Director of Lawyer’s Committee For 9/11 Inquiry, here to discuss the current status of their ongoing uphill battle to gain some semblance of government accountability and transparency in regard to 9/11 and the subsequent (and clearly interconnected) anthrax false flag." (Note: Meiswinkle mentions "Daschle"--this is Sen. Tom Daschle from South Dakota who was reticent about passing the Patriot Act.   
  • New York Times Job Listing Shows How Western Propaganda Operates by Caitlin Johnstone from her weblog. This is a best post because she highlights capitalist propaganda as a kind of religion for some people (sociopaths) who want to advance their careers and, by the way, to insure the comforts of their families. (Recall here Margaret Thatcher's statement that there is no such thing as society, there are only families.) Beliefs that support families are the cornerstone of capitalism in contrast to working class loyalties. These sociopaths don't question what they write. It is all to curry favor from their bosses in order to advance their careers and the comforts of their families. This is true of most upper-middle-class people, and some middle class people, who have adopted the sociopathic religion of capitalism.
My memory was very much the same as Curtin's emotional experiences. But there were differences. One major difference is that I was already a genuine socialist (by this I mean that people should own and control the economy to distinguish from social democrats like Bernie Sanders who only supposedly believe in a strong welfare state but with private ownership of the economy), and as such I found it completely understandable that the growing fascist Deep State could not tolerate a peace-loving president. I concluded that this incident was a sign of worse things to come, and was a least intellectually prepared for them. I, too, was enrolled in sociology course; but when this happened in addition to other experiences, I decided to abandon plans for an academic career in political sociology because I knew that academia was already filled with professors who, in order to protect their careers, had already sold out to the capitalist ruling class.
  • G20: the debt solution by Michael Roberts from CADTM (Committee for the Abolition of Illegitimate Debt). (Note: This article would be better entitled "Capitalist Nations Cannot Agree on the Global Debt Problem".)
  • iLaw's US-Funded Charter Proposal REJECTED featuring a 2:30m video presentation by Brian Berletic ("Tony Cartalucci") from his weblog Land Destroyer Report summarizing the Thai government's rejection of the rewriting of Thailand's constitution to permit US funded parties to participate in Thailand's government.
