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. ..."

Right to be forgotten: EU court rules Google must amend results on request

Individuals have right to control their data and can ask search engines to remove results, says European court

A European court has ruled that Google must amend some of its search results at the request of ordinary people when they show links to outdated, irrelevant information, in an important test of the "right to be forgotten".

In an advisory judgment stemming from a Spanish case, the court of justice of the European Union said Google and other search engines did have control of individuals' private information, given that they sometimes compiled and presented links to it in a systematic way.

The court found that under European law, individuals had a right to control their private data, especially if they were not public figures. If they wanted irrelevant or wrong personal information about themselves "forgotten" from search engine results, they had the right to request it – even if the information was legally published.

People "may address such a request directly to the operator of the search engine … which must then duly examine its merits", the ruling said.

Whether or not the request should be granted would depend "on the nature of the information in question and its sensitivity for the data subject's private life and on the interest of the public in having that information, an interest which may vary", it said.

Google must remove links to pages containing the information from results "unless there are particular reasons, such as the role played by the data subject in public life, justifying a preponderant interest of the public in having access to the information when such a search is made", the court said.

Google could not immediately be reached for comment.

It had argued that it did not control personal data, but just offered links to information already freely and legally available on the internet. It had also argued that it should not be forced to play the role of censor, especially when it offered links to information that was legally published.

The case was referred to the European court by Spain's appeal court, the Audiencia Nacional, which has fielded 200 such complaints.

The leading case was from a Spaniard named Mario Costeja who said that when his name was Googled it threw up references to an advertisement for a property auction related to an unpaid social welfare debt. Costeja and the agency argued that the debt had long been settled and that the reference should be removed.

The ad had originally appeared in a Spanish newspaper and was tracked by Google's robots when the newspaper digitised its archive.
