… 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. … “

Where does US media draw the moral line?

The decision by Fox News to post the video of a Jordanian pilot's brutal execution has sparked controversy. As with depictions of the Prophet Muhammad, journalists face tough questions about where to draw ethical lines.

Deutsche Welle, 10 Feb 2015


Most American broadcasters chose not to publish a propaganda video released by the "Islamic State" (IS) last week showing Jordanian pilot MuathAl-Kaseasbeh being burned alive in a cage. The lieutenant was captured by the militants in December when his fighter jet crashed over Syria.

CNN anchor Ashleigh Banfield explained on live television her network's decision not to publish images from the video.

"They are terribly graphic and cruel, but also they are of high propaganda value to IS(IS) members and that is not something that the United States, nor broadcasters, has any interest in helping to propagate," Banfield told viewers.

But Fox News decided to broadcast on live television still photos of Al-Kaseasbeh being burned to death. America's most watched broadcaster was the only network that chose to embed the complete unedited video on its website.

"After careful consideration, we decided that giving readers of FoxNews.com the option to see for themselves the barbarity of ISIS outweighed legitimate concerns about the graphic nature of the video," said John Moody, Fox News executive vice president, in a press release. "Online users can choose to view or not view this disturbing content." 

All the news that's fit to show?
Departure from past policy

The decision to post the video sparked public controversy, with some of Fox's personalities disagreeing with their own network. Howard Kurtz, host of Media Buzz, said he feared "that many of us in the media are helping ISIS spread its propaganda, using its fear tactics."

Last year, Fox refrained from showing videos of an IS militant beheading hostages, including US journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff.

At the time, Fox's executive vice president of news and editorial, Michael Clemente, said that "what we try to do is use judgment so that people are informed about what actually happened while showing as little of what took place as possible."

According to Roy Peter Clark, an expert on media ethics with the Poynter Institute, even if Fox posted the video with the honest intent to raise public awareness about a security threat, the decision still poses serious ethical issues. After all, journalists can describe the video's content instead of posting it.

"The other people who have a stake in this are the family, friends and loved ones of this pilot," Clark told DW.

"As I think about the world I want to live in, it doesn't include a notion that people who are already victimized in a horrible way have to be re-victimized over and over again, even by the notion that the images of their son's death will be made widely available," he said.

Images of Prophet Muhammad

Many US media outlets refrained from
publishing the Muhammad cartoons
While Fox decided to take a stand on publishing the video of Al-Kaseasbeh's execution, the broadcaster largely Mainstream outlets need to judge benefits of publication refrained in the aftermath of last month's attack on Charlie Hebdo in Paris from publishing the satirical magazine's caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad. The massacre, carried out by two heavily armed French Islamists who considered the cartoons blasphemous, left 12 people dead.

In the immediate aftermath of the massacre, the morning show Fox & Friends did broadcast a Hebdo cover that depicts Muhammad saying, "100 lashes if you don't die of laughter." But a network spokesperson subsequently told the website Mediaite that Fox had "no plans" to air the cartoons in the future. Fox did post to its website the first Hebdo cover after the massacre, which depicted Muhammad holding a sign saying "all is forgiven."

When asked to explain the broadcaster's rationale for generally refraining from publishing the Muhammad caricatures, a spokesperson told DW that Fox had not issued an official statement on the matter and declined to comment further.

Media expert Clark sees an important distinction between the two cases. Reprinting depictions of Muhammad runs the risks of inciting deadly violence against the media organization which makes that decision. Posting the video of the Jordanian pilot's execution does not, he said.

“…6 - The News

Number six. I'll be brief. Watch for your news to change. It has to. When the media realizes that Human Beings are changing their watching habits, they're going to start changing what they produce for you to watch. Eventually, there's going to be something called "The Good News Channel," and it will be very attractive indeed. For it will be real and offset the drama of what is today's attraction. This is what families at night, sitting around the table, will wish to watch. They'll have something where the whole picture of a situation is shown and not just the dramatic parts. You will hear about what's happening on the planet that no one is telling you now, and when that occurs [we have no clock, dear one], it's going to compete strongly with the drama. I keep telling you this. Human nature itself is starting to be in color instead of black and white. Watch for it. And that was number six ….”
