… 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. …

Resurgent leftist in Peru election

The Jakarta Post, Carla Salazar, Associated Press, Lima | Fri, 04/01/2011

A leftist former army officer who nearly won Peru's presidency five years ago with fiery anti-capitalist rhetoric and open affinity for Hugo Chavez has risen once again to share the lead in opinion polls just days before the presidential election.

To get there, Ollanta Humala ditched his leftist discourse and radical red T-shirt and has distanced himself from Venezuela's president, pitching himself as a mellowed moderate.

But is the image makeover merely cosmetic? Although Humala frequently dons a suit and tie and does his best to appear as a modest, respectable family man in pictures with his three children, the business community is spooked.

Business leaders fear that if Humala won the April 10 election, he would scuttle an economy that grew nearly 9 percent last year and is the envy of many neighboring countries.

Lima's main stock market index dove more than 5 percent earlier this week after two polls showed Humala reaching a technical tie for the lead with Keiko Fujimori, daughter of disgraced former President Alberto Fujimori.

Dropping to third was Alejandro Toledo, Peru's president from 2001 to 2006, who had been leading the race since January. One of the polls had Humala leading with 22.8 points, compared to 22.3 percent for Fujimori, and 21.6 for Toledo. The margin of error for the poll was plus or minus 1.96 percentage points.

The latest numbers indicate that no candidate will obtain the simple majority needed to avoid a runoff in June.

Seeking to calm investors, Humala summoned reporters to a hotel in Lima's wealthy San Isidro district after Monday's market drop to assure them his economic policies would "respect our international agreements."

"Nothing will be done outside democratic, legal means," he added.

Earlier in the campaign, the former army lieutenant colonel had called for renegotiating Peru's free trade agreements.

Humala also is promising to respect Peru's constitutional prohibition against immediate re-election, a clear acknowledgment of fears he might mimic Chavez and the Venezuelan president's South American allies, Bolivian President Evo Morales and Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa. All three won re-election after voters passed referendums allowing the countries' constitutions to be rewritten.

All three also have been accused of using strong-arm tactics to silence opposition-run news media. Humala says he respects freedom of the press.

But Peru's dominant, business-friendly daily newspaper, El Comercio, has shown little respect for him.

Last week, the paper suggested Humala planned to implement the same kind of policies that wrought economic ruin in eastern Europe under Soviet rule.

While short on specifics, Humala has advocated expanding the state's role in the economy and extracting higher royalties from mining companies, which account for 60 percent of Peru's exports.

Toledo also proposes higher taxes on windfall profits by mining companies. But he and several other of the five leading candidates also believe the private sector should continue to play a dominant role.

In his 192-page campaign platform, Humala strikes a markedly different tone from the others, contending that Peru has become "the instrument of a few small (business) groups who consider their transnationalization the only road to development."

Humala told business leaders in a January speech that he'd seek to rewrite the constitution to create "an economic regime that has social justice as its objective." That, he said, includes "restoring national sovereignty over ... natural resources."

He insists, for one, that the natural gas needs of Peru's people take priority over exports, echoing rhetoric that helped Morales get elected in gas-rich Bolivia.

Playing on class resentments in a nation where 34 percent of the people live on less than $2 a day, Humala says Peru's economy still depends too much on the cheap labor of its poor, poorly educated indigenous majority.

That has played well in the largely destitute central and southern highlands, where people whose first language is Quechua or Aymara have barely benefited from the decade-long boom produced by higher mineral prices.

Humala's climb from fourth place in January, when just 10 to 12 percent of voters preferred him, is a reflection of what independent political analyst Julio Cotler calls "the classist vote" in Peru.

"It's a vote that seeks the redistribution (of wealth)," he said, through such vehicles as state-supported day care, guaranteed pensions and inexpensive natural gas. "They are old causes that I consider to be perfectly valid."

But diametrically opposed causes are gaining favor in the race as well.

Pedro Pablo Kuczynski, a free-market champion who served as economics minister and Cabinet chief during Toledo's presidency, also has surged in the polls since mid-March.

Kuczynski is now fourth - and ahead of the entire pack in the capital of Lima, whose streets have recently become clogged with shiny new autos from China, Japan and South Korea, all beneficiaries of free trade agreements with Peru.

Yet polls show that Humala would defeat Kuczynski in a runoff, despite lingering questions about Humala's radical background.

His brother Antauro is serving a 25-year prison sentence for rebellion and murder for leading an attack on a highlands police station in 2005 in which he sought to spur an uprising against Toledo. Four police officers and two insurgents were killed.

Many analysts believe Humala's close association with Chavez - himself the instigator of a failed 1992 coup in Venezuela - kept him from the presidency in 2006. Humala told reporters in January that he hasn't been to Venezuela since.

He has instead sought advice rom the Worker's Party of former moderate-leftist Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, traveling to Brazil four times in the past five months to meet with some of the party's leaders.

Party leader Valter Pomar told The Associated Press that while the party has been in contact with Humala, "thereis nothing special about that" and it's not participating in his campaign.

As for Chavez, he broke a long silence about Humala on Wednesday during a trip to Uruguay, noting that he had led a revolt against then-President Fujimori, now serving 25 years for authorizing death squad killings.

"I think h was a good soldier," Chavez told reporters.
