The cabals on our planets have to be brought down. We all need to get our rights back.

sociopaths won't go down without a nasty knock-down drag-out fight.

This article is excellent in its analysis of the morally deficient androids who are running the world today. They couldn't be doing so without the elites and politicians who are just below them on the rungs of the socioeconomic ladder. That group runs corporations, buys governments, and makes laws that cement this power into the monstrosity of corporate personhood. In the meantime, many of the wealthiest individuals have renounced any citizenship, and exist without even that connection to the collective. The planet is monetized and owned by these predators. From the article:

"In the last decades, untamed predatory capitalism has risen to a new level in the form of a corporatocracy, creating the world’s first truly global empire. This small segment of society acts with a will to power as if they are superior to the rest of mankind. They have successfully enslaved large parts of the world population to their sense of grandiose entitlement. With plunder and extraction of what has historically belonged to the commons, they have normalized privatization and commercialization of many aspects of everyday life. With military occupation in the Middle East and sweatshops in East Asia, they made war and extractive economies the standard for global society."

There is hope, however. The author discusses how the veil of illusion is being lifted intermittently, thanks to the efforts of whistleblowers. He points out this observation Julian Assange: “We are walking around constantly in this fog where we can’t see the ground. These disclosures are a break in the fog”.

In addition to the general public being deceived by lies and doublespeak and mesmerized by cheap media spectacle, I think many people are exhausted and consumed by the struggle just to survive. It is hard for them to even be informed, let alone being capable of participating in breaking this power through civil disobedience as the author suggests as a necessary solution. Fortunately for all of us, there are some people who are willing and capable of doing this. Their work is definitely cut out for them.

You said it, Birgit! We need to make 2015 the Year of the Activist, the year that we start to turn this country around. I hope that we can still do so by peaceful and (more or less) legal means--
