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. ..."

Internet whistleblowers named CCTV's 'People of the Year'

Online whistleblowers have been named the "People of the Year" by China's state broadcaster CCTV due to the many scandals exposed on the internet by netizens over the course of 2012.

CCTV's News Weekly program said the scandals posted online, usually on Sina Weibo, China's leading equivalent of Twitter, stunned the whole country with their revelations of everything from corruption, sex scandals, the mismanagement of corporations and toxic food.

An example would be that of a local official in Guangzhou who was shown by an internet user to own 20 apartments, commercial offices and mansions, way beyond what he could afford on his official salary.

The user's post, accompanied by photos of the houses owned by the official, drew widespread public attention as soon as it went up, with tens of thousands of internet users commenting, forwarding the post and dubbing the official "Uncle House."

Two days later, the Communist Party in Guangzhou announced on its official website that it was checking up on the allegations. Two weeks later, it said the official had been removed.

Most Chinese internet users choose to believe the accusations made by whistleblowers, although they don't know them and have no way of verifying their allegations — a sign of the pervasive cynicism among a population that knows their government rarely tells the truth unless it has to.

Wang Xixin, dean of law at Peking University, said most such whistleblowers are supported by internet users since their allegations allow the general public to vent their feelings of displeasure at the injustices prevalent in society.

He said whistleblowers are people who are concerned about the general public's welfare and win their admiration because they identify with people's desire for a better standard of living.

Kuang Wenpo, a professor at Renmin University of China in Beijing, said it is hard to determine whether whistleblowing is a practice worth encouraging, because not all the allegations they leveled were necessarily true.

Although many online whistleblowers prefer to make their allegations anonymously, Zhou Xiaoyun, who brought to light the fact that state petroleum company Sinopec had bought expensive liquor in contravention of existing regulations on official luxury consumption earlier this year, used his own name when he leaked the news on the internet. "I used my name while revealing scandals to show I stand by my stories, which are backed by ironclad evidence," said Zhou.
