The Internet - The first Worldwide Tool of Unification ("The End of History")

" ... Now I give you something that few think about: What do you think the Internet is all about, historically? Citizens of all the countries on Earth can talk to one another without electronic borders. The young people of those nations can all see each other, talk to each other, and express opinions. No matter what the country does to suppress it, they're doing it anyway. They are putting together a network of consciousness, of oneness, a multicultural consciousness. It's here to stay. It's part of the new energy. The young people know it and are leading the way.... "

" ... I gave you a prophecy more than 10 years ago. I told you there would come a day when everyone could talk to everyone and, therefore, there could be no conspiracy. For conspiracy depends on separation and secrecy - something hiding in the dark that only a few know about. Seen the news lately? What is happening? Could it be that there is a new paradigm happening that seems to go against history?... " Read More …. "The End of History"- Nov 20, 2010 (Kryon channelled by Lee Carroll)

Have you seen innovation and invention in the past decade that required thinking out of the box of an old reality? Indeed, you have. I can't tell you what's coming, because you haven't thought of it yet! But the potentials of it are looming large. Let me give you an example, Let us say that 20 years ago, you predicted that there would be something called the Internet on a device you don't really have yet using technology that you can't imagine. You will have full libraries, buildings filled with books, in your hand - a worldwide encyclopedia of everything knowable, with the ability to look it up instantly! Not only that, but that look-up service isn't going to cost a penny! You can call friends and see them on a video screen, and it won't cost a penny! No matter how long you use this service and to what depth you use it, the service itself will be free.

Now, anyone listening to you back then would perhaps have said, "Even if we can believe the technological part, which we think is impossible, everything costs something. There has to be a charge for it! Otherwise, how would they stay in business?" The answer is this: With new invention comes new paradigms of business. You don't know what you don't know, so don't decide in advance what you think is coming based on an old energy world. ..."

New website to fight censorship

Deutsche Welle, 2 december 2021

In many countries, journalists have to fight censorship when trying to publish critical stories. The organization Reporters Without Borders has launched a website to publish stories otherwise suppressed by the censors.

When something is banned, it's bound get people curious. Videos and images that are suppressed, therefore, often spread like wildfire on the Internet: the topless photos of Kate Middleton, future queen of England, were online everywhere within hours. And it's this principle that Reporters Without Borders now wants to use for journalistic content.

"We believe that there has to be a platform to publish stories that are being censored in the very countries where they should be published," Matthias Spielkamp, board member of Reporter Without Borders in Germany, told DW. The focus is explicitly on well-researched features by journalists who, because of a lack of press freedom, cannot publish their stories in their country's newspapers, TV or radio.

The website is not meant to be platform like WikiLeaks and is not intended to be a place for tabloid stories, Spielkamp explained. The project is getting financial support from the European Union, the city of Paris and from donations.

Reporters Without Borders presents stories in their entirety and
explains why they were censored

Support for censored authors

One of the first stories published is from Morocco, where Omar Brouksy is no longer allowed to work as a publisher. In October, the government withdrew his accreditation because the journalist had been overly critical of the royal family's role during a recent election.

Brouksy's text, however, continues to be available online. Reporters Without Borders published the piece in agreement with the author on their website, Online with text, the page also explains why each story is being censored.

The website offers to publish any material that's being censored in an author's home country. Articles are sent anonymously, and in a way that the author's identity cannot be traced. Reporters Without Borders, which itself does ask for the author's identity to check whether the story is credible, offers to keep the writers anonymous for their own protection, explained Spielkamp.

Should the stories not be written in English or France, they will be translated for the page. All the material will also be offered for download, and even outright copying of an entire work is encouraged. Readers can post the stories on social media networks as well as on a list of regional services.

More security than a blog

Spielkamp says the focus is on
well-researched features
The Internet offers many options to journalists and citizens to spread information online. Cuban blogger Yoani Sanchez, for instance, is well known despite being faced with censorship in her country. She manages to circumvent the many obstacles to publish her stories, and her popularity partly protects her from the consequences of her dangerous work.

Spielkamp, however, warns of trying to do something similar without the help of his organization. "It's often very dangerous for journalists in authoritarian countries to start their own platforms," he explained. It's also often easy to trace the identity of the authors.

The team behind, though, promises anonymity – both to the authors and the protagonists of the stories – and at the same time guarantees the credibility of each work. "It's striking a balance," said Spielkamp. "With every story you have to assess: Is this credible to us? Can we publish this or not?"
