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 Friday, June 18, 2021

Despite mainstream media’s dogged refusal to pursue any research into potential harm of the Covid vaccines, some very troubling information has recently surfaced if one is willing to look beyond headlines and CDC reports. Unlike the Washington Post, I will also examine the risk aspect of the vaccine with a look at the role of the infamous “spike” protein.
After arguing that "Martin says that these companies have cut back on developing robust cybersecurity over several years in order to reduce costs and boost profits." he deduces this statement:
Blaming Russia or Russia-based hackers is not simply a neat way to offset costs, it is a dangerous escalation of national security tensions at a time when relations are already fraught with animosity.
But who is Randy Martin other than some "U.S.-based political analyst"? No link to any article where he writes this and other quotes. I consider Cunningham to be an absolutely credible journalist, so I excuse him for this omission--it might be reasons related to the protection of Martin and his career.

I regard this latest campaign to blame Russia is a disinformation tactic as a part of the anti-Russian propaganda campaign. But it may be more than that. 
It could be (I'm not saying that it is, but we can expect more shocks from the ruling class) that the operatives of the ruling class are preparing a devastating cyber-attack on an essential network as part of the billionaire's plan of the Great Reset while conveniently laying the groundwork to blame Russia ahead of time. I don't think we have seen the end of steps to create the Fourth Industrial Revolution and its corollary population reduction because of "Kissinger’s conception that non-essential members of society are useless eaters." This will be justified under their fake concern for the climate crisis, but it also conveniently serves their bottom lines of profit. The capitalist ruling classes are all addicts to profits. I agree with Joaquin Flores who recently concluded
... the corporate culture of externalizing costs and downsizing worked for the bottom line, but as a legitimating ISA [essentially propaganda and indoctrination] it could only lead to the final problem with its own final solution: the ‘carbon footprint’ human beings are now the redundant workforce to be done away with. With automation and roboticization, no human being will be essential. All human life is inessential.
  • Explained: Burke et al. 2018 by Prof. (retired) Guy McPherson, an independent scientist (via his YouTube channel--02:40m), who has fearlessly focused on the climate crisis, in order to explain, and differ regarding one detail, the research study by Burke et al. (Note: I experienced occasional blackouts of the video.)
