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 for Monday, February 22, 2021

  • šŸ’„Government Docs From 2002 Reveal 20 Year Plan To ‘Alter Evolution’ With Nanotechnology, a one hour excerpt from Ryan CristiĆ”n's usual several hours talk video-talk show posted on The Last American Vagabond. This is clearly a best post. (Note: I encountered several technical problems while accessing this audio-video program. CristiĆ”n has helpfully posted this essential and very interesting post on various websites. He quotes from various government documents (which he cites) starting from more than 20 years ago that clearly is alarming about research combining the fields of biotechnology, information technology, and nanotechnology to modify human behavior and engineer bioweapons which serve various interests of the ruling capitalist class. The resemblance of the recent Klaus Schwab's Reset speech and this research is uncanny, to say the least. This ongoing research is accompanied by government drives in support of censorship.)
  • The ‘Transition’ of the Ɖlites by Alastair Crooke from Strategic Culture Foundation. My reaction: In this essay Crooke, a British ex-MI6 agent, diplomat, now geopolitical analyst, sees the core of the US/Anglo/Zionist Empire, the USA, as being fragmented by generations and factions. Perhaps the imperialist USA is in a dying phase in which fragmentation is the last phase. It is to be hoped because I have never before experienced such a deep feeling of living in an insane nation.
  • The Arab Spring – A Personal Story by Finian Cunningham from Strategic Culture Foundation. (Note: You will need to know the meaning of the British phrase "came a cropper".) My reaction: Suddenly news about the ongoing riots and protests in Bahrain dropped out of sight. This story fills in the gap of missing information about the attempted, and very genuine, revolution in Bahrain beginning in 2010. It also confirms my theory that all mainstream media concentrate their reporting on events that are crucial to their masters in the US/Anglo/Zionist Empire. This experience together with the MSM's extensive coverage of Arab Spring events in Egypt helped me to see that the 24/7 TV coverage by MSM about the exaggerated "corona pandemic" is largely serving the Empire's policy interests.
