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. ..."

Obama makes fresh push for cybersecurity legislation

US President Barack Obama has made a fresh push for cybersecurity legislation. It comes in the wake of highly publicized cyber attacks including on the US Central Command's Twitter page, which was targeted this week.

Deutsche Welle, 13 Jan 2015


US President Barack Obama renewed calls on Tuesday for cybersecurity legislation and asked the new Congress to revive an initiative which had been stalled in recent years.

The new proposal would allow increased sharing of information on cyber threats from the private sector with protection from liability.

It would also be a criminal offence to sell stolen financial data and companies would have to notify consumers about data breaches under the measures.

Speaking at a White House meeting with congressional leaders, Obama said that recent events had increased the need for tougher cybersecurity legislation.

"With the Sony attack that took place, with the Twitter account that was hacked by Islamist jihadist sympathizers yesterday, it just goes to show we need to do much more work in the public and private sector to strengthen our cyber security," the president said.

A White House statement said the updated proposal "promotes better cybersecurity information sharing between the private sector and government, and it enhances collaboration and information sharing amongst the private sector."

Sense of urgency over cybersecurity

Obama had pressed for the legislation to be revised in order to allow the private sector to share data on threats without fear of any adverse consequences from the disclosures.

Earlier efforts were stalled due to opposition from civil libertarians who feared the measures could allow too much government interference. In turn, conservatives argued they would create a new bureaucracy.

However, concerns were further heightened by the hacking of Sony Pictures in December, which the administration blamed on North Korea, and major data breaches affecting retailers including Target and Home Depot.

On Monday, the US Central Command suspended its Twitter and Youtube pages after a group declaring its support for "Islamic State" (IS) jihadists hacked its social media accounts and posted internal documents.

However, it seems to have been a temporary hitch as the department's Twitter account was up and running once again on Tuesday:

Obama is scheduled to comment on the legislative proposals later on Tuesday in a speech at the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center in Virginia.
The proposals are also expected to be part of his State of the Union address on January 20.
