Little bird on the back of the Great Beast

It's impossible to overstate the importance of unscripted events like we're seeing in Iran. We fall into the illusion of the power brokers, those who benefit from the status quo, that history is made by policy makers, politicians, backroom deals by looters and corporate death dealers. This is what they want us to believe. This is what they depend on our believing: that history is made by them, by the leaders.
 Their 'control' is a con-game. They are like little birds riding the back of a sometimes lumbering, sometimes charging rhino... whispering into its ear, picking at the lice... believing THEY are in command.
It is not so.
It never is.

There is no more important lesson to be learned.
