… 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. …

“… The Fall of Many - Seen It Yet?

You are going to see more and more personal secrets being revealed about persons in high places of popularity or government. It will seem like an epidemic of non-integrity! But what is happening is exactly what we have been teaching. The new energy has light that will expose the darkness of things that are not commensurate with integrity. They have always been there, and they were kept from being seen by many who keep secrets in the dark. Seen the change yet?

In order to get to a more stable future, you will have to go through gyrations of dark and light. What this means is that the dark is going to be revealed and push back at you. It will eventually lose. We told you this. That's what you're here for is to help those around you who don't see an escape from the past. They didn't get their nuclear war, but everything else is going into the dumper anyway. … “

Court acquits Greek journalist on trial for leaking bank data

ATHENS — A Greek court on Thursday acquitted a journalist of breach of privacy in publishing the names of 2,000 Greeks with Swiss bank accounts, in a case that has exposed the debt-plagued Greek government to charges of a cover-up.

Costas Vaxevanis, a 46-year-old veteran television journalist who now publishes a magazine, has insisted he was doing his job and accused ministers responsible for vetting the list for possible tax evasion of doing nothing for two years.

"We will endure this. Will they?" Vaxevanis tweeted ahead of the trial.

Vaxevanis, who was arrested on Sunday, was charged with breach of privacy and had faced a maximum three-year prison sentence if convicted.

Calling for his conviction, the prosecutor said: "You have publicly ridiculed a series of people, you have delivered these people to a society that is thirsty for blood."

"The solution to the problems that the country is facing is not cannibalism," added the prosecutor.

But after 12 hours of trial, the court acquitted Vaxevanis.

The ruling was met with applause, while a visibly emotional Vaxevanis thanked the judge.
Several media workers had testified on behalf of Vaxevanis, including the head of the International Federation of Journalists, Jim Bumelha, who called the trial an "absurd farce".

"Colleagues from all over the world will be keeping an eye on this. If something happens to Costas, we will gather all of the forces that we have got, wherever we are, to campaign for his release," he told reporters ahead of the verdict.

The head of the Athens union of journalists, Dimitris Trimis, also took the stand.

"I would have done the same thing," Trimis told the court, according to excerpts posted on a blog operated by Vaxevanis.

"A bank account is not personal data, we live in an era of transparency," Trimis said.

A radical leftist lawmaker whose father is on the journalist's legal team denounced the case as a "blow to democracy".

Amnesty International's deputy programme director for Europe and Central Asia, Marek Marczynski, said ahead of the ruling that it was "deeply troubling" that Vaxevanis is facing charges "for disclosing information in the public interest".

"This step increases the risk that other journalists will censor themselves and refrain from legitimate criticism of the government to avoid prosecution," he said.

Vaxevanis has accused the Greek state of hypocrisy and says the justice system is bowing to a corrupt political system.

"Our politicians declare themselves to be democrats. I see no evidence of this," he wrote in Britain's The Times newspaper on Thursday.

"I wonder if Greek justice will show that the law safeguards the public interest and freedom of speech... in journalism you must do what you think is right without worrying about the consequences," he wrote.

The journalist has also accused Greek media of burying the story.

Vaxevanis' "Hot Doc" magazine on Saturday published the names of more than 2,000 Greeks, allegedly from a controversial list of HSBC account holders that was originally leaked by a bank employee and passed to Greece in 2010 by France's then finance minister Christine Lagarde, who is now IMF chief.

Greek authorities took no action given that the list was considered stolen data that could not be used against potential tax evaders.

When the case resurfaced last month, it took several days for officials to even locate a copy of the so-called "Lagarde List".

Among those named are prominent businessmen, shipowners, lawyers, doctors, journalists and a former minister, as well as companies, housewives and students although no deposit sums were published.

The data has been the subject of intense discussion, with the government facing calls to use it to crack down on potential tax cheats as the country grapples with a massive debt crisis.

On Thursday, a special economic prosecutor asked parliament to investigate whether previous finance ministers could be faulted for failing to take action on the list, media reports said.

Evangelos Venizelos, the leader of the socialist Pasok party and a former finance minister, told a parliament committee that he had ordered the finance ministry's tax police to investigate, a claim which the department's chief at the time denies.

Ex-finance minister George Papaconstantinou, the first recipient of the data in 2010, said he did not know what had happened to the original version of the list, raising speculation that it could have been tampered with.

Current finance chief Yannis Stournaras has asked France to re-send the list.

Vaxevanis says he got the information in an anonymous letter whose sender claimed to have received it from a politician.

On Wednesday, police arrested another journalist who claimed to have in his possession a list of finance ministry documents allegedly stolen by hackers from the state general accounting office.
