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 Wednesday, March 10, 2021

  • Empire Update: US Kisses Saudi Crown + Taliban’s Tet Offensive featuring Abbie Martin reporting the adventures of the US/Anglo/Zionist Empire during the week in a 8:38m video from Media Roots. (Note: She reports more news than the title of this post acknowledges.) My reaction: This would be good for Americans to watch this weekly report instead of TV "news" reports by media corporations.
  • Chaos In Ukraine Is Making An Epic Comeback from South Front. (Note: This post includes a 3:48m video report and transcript.) My reaction: This is another report on how true Joe Biden's statement that "America is back". The main capitalist ruling class is back after the Trump interruption and returning to their favorite strategies to counter Russia's influence as illustrated by Ukrainian developments reported in this post and the bombing and missile strikes on Syria. Among the developments in Ukraine are those that the ruling class is already implementing here in the USA:
It all started with the shutting down of opposition TV channels and immediately moved to attacks on the largest and most popular opposition party – “Opposition Platform – For Life!”.Opposition leaders were then sanctioned, for being “Putin agents”, and many of its members were openly censored and persecuted. Then it came down to censoring and persecuted another well-known opposition figure – Anatoly Shariy, and his party.

Websites were pulled down, accounts were banned, cases were opened against those against President Volodymyr Zelensky and his “Servant of the People” party. 

  • BREAKING: Jaw-Dropping Development In Malcolm X Assassination featuring Lee Camp at his YouTube channel reporting a new eye-opening development related to the assassination of Malcolm X. This is direct evidence, that many people have suspected over the many years since the assassination: that the NYC police department is responsible for this murder. Of course, the latter was acting according to orders issued by the ruling capitalist class to silence him because they didn't like his efforts at raising the consciousness of poor African-Americans. This incident will never be reported by mainstream "news" corporations who will continue serving the ruling class with the dissemination of propaganda.
