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 Tuesday, April 13, 2021

I ask myself why is this important? I should stick to articles that are of fundamental importance to human survival which I believe is the quest for social justice that only socialism (public ownership and control of the economy) can provide in the remaining days of humans.
We humans depend on one another to shape our world, and to do that we depend on one another for all things, and especially to tell the truth about our existence. Unfortunately, there are among us sociopaths that are under-socialized to the extent that they strive for only objectives that make them richer and more powerful. Sociopaths will always lie to obtain their self-seeking goals. But the rest of us are not perfect and there is a little sociopathy in all of us. It takes a lot of hard work to determine what is really going on. Unfortunately for humans this weakness will result in our extinction. You see, the hardcore sociopaths among us don't understand that we humans are only one part of the huge web of life found on our exceptional Earth.
I believe that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is a hardcore sociopath. And the transnational capitalist directors of the US/Anglo/Zionist Empire know this and play (manipulate) him in their power game to rule the world. They know this because they themselves are sociopaths. ("It takes one to know one.") Sociopathy is a fundamental part of their perspective regarding how they perceive human nature. They use all people by playing on this human weakness. They have lured Erdogan with the bait of extending his power ambitions in their contest for global domination against the Russia/China/Iran bloc which is threatening their global domination.
Erdogan and Turkey are especially useful for the Empire directors to control and contain China because Uyghurs are of Turkish descent and mostly Muslim who make up (according to Wikipedia) about 45% of the population of Xinjiang, a strategic western province of China that these directors are currently active attempting to destabilize it. (see map) Salman Rafi Sheikh, the author of this article, knows this and is pointing it out to us.

Yesterday I was astonished to learn that apparently Erdogan has succumbed to this manipulation when I read this astonishing article which I immediately posted.
  • Sweden Axes Gates Mad Global Warming Scheme by F. William Engdahl from New Eastern Outlook. (Note: I advise you to skip this post.) My reaction: I have posted other articles by this geopolitical analyst because of his specialty of knowledge, but there are some specialists who think they know everything about everything. These specialists who write outside of their well-honed knowledge should be ignored. If you, against my advice, read the article, have you noticed that he doesn't supply any documentation or links to support his contention in the following quote despite it being against all evidence supplied by independent global-warming scientists?
... in fact the Earth has slowly been cooling as we enter what some astrophysicists estimate could be several decades of global cooling caused by a Grand Solar Minimum cycle we entered in 2020.
Bill Gates may be mad, but global warming is real.
