Michael Tsarion in his Age of Manipulation 11hr lecture discussing the value exploring the path of Self-hood.
He incorporates this teaching in many of his works. Including many Red Ice radio interviews.
Perhaps your greatest ally today. Your inner Truth and living a life authentic to it. One which is greatly resisted being explored due by the efforts to distract in every way and form from it. Because, once that journey is begun. And, the Self governance kicks in. You will not allow yourself to be ruled by anything or anyone. You will see how it is done to many also.
The need for governance will be greatly reduced.
