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)

“…5 - Integrity That May Surprise…

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. ..."

Obama to Propose Curbs on NSA Spying to Safeguard Privacy

Washington. US President Barack Obama plans to propose curbs on the National Security Agency to guard against unwarranted snooping in Americans’ private affairs.

The president is scheduled to get a report next week from a five-member panel of lawyers and former security officials that’s reviewing the spy agency’s sweeping collection of communications data worldwide. It was created after the leaks of secret government documents by former government security contractor Edward Snowden.

“I’ll be proposing some self-restraint on the NSA and to initiate some reforms to give people more confidence,” Obama said yesterday in an interview on MSNBC’s “Hardball With Chris Matthews” program. Americans, he said, “rightly are sensitive to needs to preserve their privacy and to maintain Internet freedom, and so am I.”

Obama’s action on recommendations from the Review Group on Intelligence and Communications may have consequences for Google, Microsoft, Facebook and Apple. Technology companies are facing the loss of billions of dollars in overseas business, stricter regulations and erosion of consumer trust as a result of revelations that the NSA gained access to private networks to conduct surveillance.

Obama didn’t specify what kinds of limits he has in mind. He defended the agency’s data collection in general, citing the threats to US banks, increasing online crime and terrorism.

‘Bad actors’

“If we’re going to do a good job of preventing a terrorist attack on this country, a weapon of mass destruction getting onto the New York subway system, etcetera, we do want to keep eyes on some bad actors,” he said in the interview before an audience of mostly students at American University in Washington and broadcast last night.

The president said the disclosures from material leaked by Snowden over several months “have identified some areas of legitimate concern,” though some of the reporting on the material has been “highly sensationalized.”

Obama said the surveillance disclosures, along with the botched rollout of the government’s health-care website and allegations of Internal Revenue Service scrutiny of Tea Party groups, have contributed to an erosion of the public’s trust in government.

“The cynicism and the skepticism is deep,” he said. Little attention is given when the government does something well, Obama said. “If we do something that is perceived, at least initially, as a screw-up, it’ll be on the nightly news for a week.”

2016 campaign

Obama declined to handicap the contenders for the Democratic nomination for president in 2016. Among the potential candidates are his vice president, Joe Biden, and his former secretary of state, Hillary Clinton.

Asked to compare their presidential qualifications, Obama replied “not a chance.”

“Here’s what I’ll say: Both Hillary and Joe would make outstanding presidents and possess the qualities need to be outstanding presidents,” Obama said.

Reflecting on five years as president, Obama said: “It makes you humbler, as opposed to cockier, about what you as an individual can do.”

“It’s hard, it can be frustrating, you’ve got to have a thick skin.”
