… 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. … “

Medvedev admits Russia needs reform as protesters plan further rallies

President concedes that political system is exhausted but dismisses post-election demonstrations as 'foam'

President Dmitry Medvedev has called for an overhaul of Russia's "exhausted" political system in a sign that street protests and dissatisfaction with Vladimir Putin's 12-year rule are starting to have some impact.

The two men have dismissed the protesters' claims that a parliamentary election earlier this month was marred by fraud and ignored calls for a rerun. They also sought to play down the significance of the demonstrations as Putin prepares to return to the presidency in an election next March.

But Putin hinted at some token political concessions in his annual question-and-answer phone-in on Thursday. He said he might change the law to let opposition parties be registered and allow regional governors to be elected, rather than chosen by the president, if their candidacy is approved in advance.

Medvedev, who is junior to Putin under their power-sharing arrangement, went further on Saturday by telling members of the United Russia movement that the political system and the ruling party needed reforms.

"We are facing a new stage in the development of the political system and we can't close our eyes to it. It has already begun," Medvedev said in a transcript released by the Kremlin and published on the presidency website.

"It didn't begin as a result of some rallies. These are just on the surface – foam if you like. It's a sign of human dissatisfaction," he said. "It started because the old model which has served our state faithfully, truly and well in the last few years, and we all defended it, has largely been exhausted."

Medvedev did not give any details of how United Russia and the political system, largely built around Putin, should change. But evoking the chaos that followed the 1917 Bolshevik revolution, he said the risks of ignoring the mood of the people could be far-reaching.

"The street, this is the mood of our people and the authorities must say responsibly and directly that this is their mood … The mood of the people must be respected," he said.

"It's absolutely unacceptable for there to be any delegitimisation of the authorities … because for our country this means the collapse of the state.

"What is Russia without government? Everyone remembers from the history books. It's 1917."

The hints by Medvedev and Putin that they are ready to tinker with the political system have made little impact on the protesters, who on 10 December staged the biggest opposition rallies since Putin rose to power in 1999.

The protesters remain angry the leaders have ignored their demands for a rerun of the December election, which the opposition says was rigged to help United Russia secure a slim majority in the lower house of parliament.

International monitors also said the vote was slanted to favour United Russia, and the protesters plan another day of rallies across the world's biggest country and energy producer on 24 December.

"We want to get at least as many or more people out on the streets next Saturday to show they can't keep on cheating us," said Mila, a 26-year-old Muscovite at an opposition rally attended by about 1,500 people in the capital on Saturday.

Putin, a former KGB spy who won support during his 2000-08 presidency by restoring order after the chaos that followed the collapse of the Soviet Union, ushered Medvedev into power in 2008 because of a constitutional ban on three successive terms as president.

But an opinion poll last week showed Putin's approval ratings have fallen sharply. Many people feel alienated by a system dominated by the 59-year-old leader, who looks set to win the presidential election on 4 March and rule for at least six more years.

For some, the final straw was an announcement by Medvedev and Putin at a United Russia congress on 24 September that they planned to swap jobs after the March election, a decision widely seen as arrogant and undemocratic.

"We've had enough. Putin was president, then Medvedev, now it'll be Putin again. Who knows, maybe they're planning to bring back Medvedev again later," said Igor Belyakov, 35, during Saturday's protest organised by the liberal Yabloko party.

Putin sought to rebuild support in his long television question-and-answer session on Thursday, at which he discussed the protests and the allegations of electoral fraud.

But when he said he had mistaken the white ribbons worn by protesters for condoms, the comment went down badly. Many young people dismissed him as out of touch on the same social network sites that they have used to summon people to protests.
