… The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.

What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. …

Havana’s information monopoly is falling apart

RNW, 18 May 2012, by Raúl López

The rise of the internet cannot be stopped, not even in communist Cuba. Although the digital age has so far hardly emerged on the Caribbean island, the state monopoly on information in Cuba is bearing its first cracks.

“In Cuba, access to the internet is extremely limited, it is totally controlled and very slow,” says Cuban author and journalist, Leonardo Padura, who gained international fame with a series of thrillers The Four Seasons and a number of novels.

Padura is one of Cuba’s more outspoken critics. “I’m endlessly irritated by the amount of time it takes to log onto the internet. And it takes even longer to find something on a search engine,” he sighs. Padura is able to buy access to the internet now and then from his royalties.

Weblogs very popular

There are no official figures on internet use on Cuba according to Padura. “Even email is very limited due to the poor connections. What’s interesting is the increase in the number of weblogs written in Cuba, which are not accessible to Cubans. They are actually only made for people outside Cuba.”

The best-known example is ‘Generación Y’, a blog by dissident Yoani Sánchez. Thanks to her blog, the outside world learns about a very different Cuba than the country that the regime likes to portray. Sánchez writes about matters that all Cubans are familiar with, but which the outside world mustn’t find out. In 2010, she won the Prince Claus Prize for her blog.

Control of information

Thanks to Generación Y many more Cubans began writting blogs – both dissidents and ordinary people – and the first cracks began to appear in the internet monopoly of the Cuban state. “There are two sorts of blogs in Cuba: official ones and unofficial ones. The official ones are not interesting, but the second sort is. Some bloggers propagate a form of democratic socialism which would be an improvement on the current situation. Others are very hostile about Cuban reality.”

The biggest achievement of these blogs and the new technological developments is that they make it impossible for the regime to keep control over information. In 1961, two years after the Cuban revolution, Fidel Castro introduced strict control of information on the island, following the example of the Soviet Union. “But now the information monopoly is falling apart,” says Padura. “It is not just the blogs which play a key role. Some Cubans are able to record television programmes broadcast from Miami in the United States. These programmes are put on DVDs and people watch them in the evenings.”

Political decision

Padura thinks the authorities in Havana should take a political decision to give citizens free access to the internet.

“If they do not, they will put the country in danger. I do not think stricter control of information, which is leaking like a sieve anyway, will stop access to the digital highway.”

Leonardo Padura still hopes Raúl Castro’s regime will lift access restrictions to the internet. “I think it is a matter of time. And of intelligent political decisions.”
