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. ..."

Alibaba case underlines gov't resolution to curb fakes

The public spat between Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba and the country's commerce watchdog has brought the government's resolution to crack down on counterfeiting and protect consumers to the forefont.

The spat was prompted by a sample survey conducted by the State Administration for Industry and Commerce (SAIC), which found more fakes than genuine items were sold on Taobao, a popular online shopping site operated by Alibaba.

The company, which held a record-breaking IPO in New York in September, had more than US$30 billion wiped from its market capitalization in two days ending Thursday.

Alibaba accused SAIC of being biased and wrong, saying they would file a formal complaint. But it promised to establish a 300 person "fake-fighting special operations battalion" to add force to its ongoing combat against counterfeit goods sold by vendors on its sites.

Boosted by a huge number of customers and the largest, constantly improving e-commerce environment, China's online retail market has been thriving over the past few years, leading to the rise of companies such as Alibaba and Jingdong Mall.

As China strives to shift its economy to a consumption-driven model, authorities have taken a series of measures to ensure consumers' interests are being better protected, fining monopolistic practices by both foreign and domestic firms and severely punishing those producing and selling shoddy goods.

The online retail market, still a small portion of retail market in terms of sales but expanding at a phenomenal pace, deserves equal, if not more, attention.

The Chinese government is looking to regulate the market, which has been plagued by rampant counterfeiting, but progress has been slow until now.

The spat may bring some change and kick-start a tougher anti-counterfeit campaign by both the government and the industry.

Both sides should keep their focus on solutions.

Despite intensified supervision, the government should accelerate the adoption of effective legislation and ensure better implementation, while industry players mobilizing more resources to enhance consumer protections.
