Cajones! Right or Wrong…

From AVAAZ.com

This 29 year-old analyst just gave up his whole life — his girlfriend, his job, and his home — to blow the whistle on the US government’s shocking PRISM program — which has been reading and recording our emails, Skype messages, Facebook posts and phone calls for years.

When Bradley Manning passed this kind of data to Wikileaks, the US threw him naked into solitary confinement in conditions that the UN called “cruel, inhumane and degrading”.

The authorities and press are deciding right now how to handle this scandal. If millions of us stand with Edward in the next 48 hours, it will send a powerful statement that he should be treated like the brave whistleblower that he is, and it should be PRISM, and not Edward, that the US cracks down on:Image

 

PRISM is profoundly disturbing: it gives the US government unlimited access to all of our personal email and social media accounts on Google, Youtube, Facebook, Skype, Hotmail, Yahoo and much more. They’re recording billions of our messages every month and the CIA can now or in future use the information to prosecute, persecute, or blackmail us, our friends or our families!

Edward was horrified by this unprecedented violation of individual privacy. So he copied large amounts of files, escaped to Hong Kong and sent them to the Guardian newspaper for publication. Now he’s trapped in a hotel room, waiting to be arrested. A global outcry could save him from extradition to the US, and encourage other countries to grant him asylum.

We can’t let the US do to Edward what they did to Bradley Manning. Let’s urgently stand with him, and against PRISM:  https://secure.avaaz.org/en/stop_prism_8/?bzHFLab&v=25768

 

Sometimes the things our governments do are simply breathtaking. When heroic individuals like Edward have risked their own freedoms to bring scandals of this scale into light, the Avaaz community has come together to demand fair treatment — and won. After more than half a million of us called on the US government to stop its cruel treatment of Bradley Manning, he was relocated to a medium-security prison and taken out of solitary confinement. If we act quickly, we might do better for Edward, and help him win the fight he’s bravely taken on, for all our sakes.

With hope and determination,

Simple solutions to CyberTheft of Valued Documentation and Institutional Bribery

Documents with critical and precious contents can include crippled or faulty information that would make time spent by cyberthieves lead to a (perhaps costly) deadened.  Critical data for the success can be delivered by some other more direct means.. Gosh, maybe even by mail. 

In communities where bribery is institutionalized, the bribe/payoff can be submitted in an envelope laced with Risen or an innocent powder…   just 50-50 odds.

American’s Right to Guns…

Yeah. The SECOND AMENDMENT.

Contemporary interpretations, which are being honored by a significant number of politicians, despite murderous insanity, are worlds of technological innovation beyond what might be imagined by the Founders of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

HOWEVER, The SECOND AMENDMENT did not make any proviso to guarantee the availability of ammunition.

Holders of all kinds of weapons can have, hold, cherish and love all of their weapons.

Let us just eliminate ALL AMMUNITION.

To life and love on a small planet.

GLOBAL NETWORK for a THRIVING and SUSTAINABLE FUTURE.

We must evolve or Perish like the Dinosaurs.

The life support system of Planet Earth has changed — and we have changed it — to a progressively more inhospitable place for human life. You have seen the devastating tornados and tsunamis, floods and crippling heat waves, depletions of ocean fish species, and the dead zones in the oceans.

We have a window of time to change, to evolve our perception and action during our near future of radical disruptive changes. (Unlike the dinosaurs, we have evolved far enough to see the change happening.)

(Mother) Earth has been extraordinarily generous with her support — stabile level of Oxygen for about 200 thousand years — with air and water systems that persistently regenerate from moderate extremes, and heal. But our unaware, unexamined excesses compounded by exponential population growth, has unbalanced the system than sustains our existence on this small spacestation, placing future of human life as we know it, in peril.

Denial, inertia, dogmatic beliefs, distractions, hopelessness, paralyzing powerlessness all contribute to our unresponsive inactivity.

We have, oblivious to the impact of hundreds of our little actions, interfered with the subtly balanced life support system that allows us to exist on this little unique speck of a planet in the vast universe.

And it will take billions of people to make hundreds of aware, conscious changes in our behavior to re-establish a balanced and sustainable environment that can again persist in hosting the unique human species.

The mission of GLOBAL NETWORK for a THRIVING and SUSTAINABLE FUTURE is to provide the intelligence and resources, the inspiration and global connections to make the evolution of humans a possibility. We will either learn to live in harmony with each other and the living Earth, or perish.

Antidote to humanity…? Happier Mother’s Day?

Has anyone considered that the apparent increase in homosexuality (if i’t not just increased awareness) could be a function of (Mother) Nature working to counter human overpopulation?

How many more decades will it take for “pro life” organizations to take responsibility for their degradation of Earth’s Life Support System?

When will governments become aware of their responsibility and give tax benefits to couples that do not have children, and more so to couples who adopt infants they can provide a better quality of life that the birth parents?

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY — Mother Earth
