Robert David Steele, former Marine, CIA case officer, and US co-founder of the US Marine Corps intelligence activity, is a man on a mission. But it’s a mission that frightens the US intelligence establishment to its core.
With 18 years experience working across the US intelligence community, followed by 20 more years in commercial intelligence and training, Steele’s exemplary career has spanned almost all areas of both the clandestine world.
This may be the single most smart, experienced, well-researched, and, to the establishment, terrifying individual I’ve heard about lighting the way to a common’s based future. It really brings me hope to see someone who was this much of an insider “switching sides” (really simply wanting to continue working for the public instead of the elites.) As it becomes more and more clear that current governmental and corporate organizations simply don’t have solutions for most of us, we’re going to see more and more people like this actively moving in the direction of a bottom-up, commons-based approach to coordination and the solving of large-scale problems.
