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. ..."

Neelie Kroes: @Habemus papam

DutchNews.nl, Monday 04 March 2013

Neelie Kroes on the similarities between the European Commission and the College of Cardinals.

An international college in a European capital is poised to make a decision that will have consequences for the whole world. It is taking place behind closed doors according to mysterious and incomprehensible rules.

No, it’s not the European Commission in Brussels. This time it’s the college of cardinals in Rome. The cardinals will not be voting on budgets, the euro crisis or legislation but on who will become the new pope.

 Obsolete

I think this opaque, male-dominated institution is completely obsolete. I realise that many people see the European Commission as a similarly obscure, power-crazed group of people, also dominated by men and operating according to rules that no one understands.

The people on the commission do understand the how and why of what they are doing and for them the importance of what they are doing is a given. To the cardinals the procedure is crystal clear but to the faithful on Saint Peter’s square it couldn’t be less so.

Granted, the Commission and the European Council of Ministers can move in mysterious ways as well. But as a former MP and minister, I know very well that the national policy-making process can be pretty obscure, too, and so widens the gap between government and citizens.

Twitter

Now the internet has made it so easy to access information, I find it incredible that such closed structures remain in place. The question is: how much longer? When will the first reality soap about the conclave hit the internet? The pope is on twitter already. Will the cardinals follow suit? ‘Is nothing sacred’, I hear people cry.

The church may profit from mysticism and mystery but the European Commission is much better off without it. Closed structures lead to distrust and distance and erode the public engagement we need so much.

The Commission, compared to other government bodies, is relatively transparent and accessible. But this doesn’t translate into a better understanding, perhaps because the institutional rules in the EU are too complex.

Consultation

It’s not the public consultation rounds that are to blame. Every Commission proposal is subject to several consultation rounds which, by the way, take up far too much time. But we are not reaching the right people and that is something that concerns my colleagues and myself. The decisions made in Brussels don’t just have to be explained and understood. People should also have the opportunity to have a say and express their support or criticism.

The social media make this possible. I receive questions, messages and opinions 24/7. This is no longer a nice fringe activity, it is an integral part of politics and governance. We are moving towards a culture in which transparency and accountability are the norm. That includes the European Commission.  It won’t happen overnight. We are not going to see the election of a new pope according to the number of followers on twitter any time soon but the social media will inevitably change even the administration of the church. Isn’t the twitter symbol a white dove? Amen.
