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.

Neocons 2.0: The problem with Peter Pomerantsev
If you still have doubts about my assertion that there is a one-sided information war going on in my last opinion piece entitled "A Revolutionary Model: Problems and Possibilities - Part 3 of 3", then you will surely need to read this piece. But even if you were aware, I still recommend it because it gives you an idea of the length that mostly neocons (I think that they are more accurately identified as "Ziocons"--short for "Zionist conservatives") go to invert reality. I don't think you did need wade through the entire rather lengthy article to get the idea that our masters' media corporations are under the control of highly skilled sociopaths who are very much like Peter Pomerantsev.
Also consider the trend in the last decades of subverting alternative media sources into serving us propaganda of the US Empire. A prime example of this is in this article entitled "When Mother Jones Was Investigated For Spreading 'Kremlin Disinformation'".
