… 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. … “

S. Korean presidential hopeful quits after rape accusation

Yahoo – AFP, Jung Hawon, 6 March 2018

Ahn had been tipped as a front-runner among liberal presidential hopefuls to
succeed Moon Jae-in

A former South Korean presidential contender stepped down as a provincial governor and announced his retirement from politics Tuesday in a stunning political fall after a female aide accused him of multiple rapes.

Ahn Hee-jung -- who came second to current President Moon Jae-in in the contest for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination last year -- is the most prominent figure to face abuse allegations during a swirling #MeToo movement in what is still a male-dominated society.

Kim Ji-eun, who was Ahn's personal assistant before becoming an aide in civil affairs, told a television interviewer on Monday that Ahn had raped her four times since she was hired in June.

One of the violations took place in Geneva, Kim told JTBC, where Ahn was attending a UN Human Rights Council panel discussion in September.

The last straw came when Ahn called her into his office on the night of February 25 and apologised for having hurt her, talking about the country's #MeToo movement, Kim said.

"And then he raped me again," she said, holding back tears. She also accused Ahn of sexually assaulting others.

"He always told me not to express my thoughts or opinion and to live like a shadow behind him... I couldn't say no to him because I knew how much power he had," Kim said.

Following the TV interview, the ruling Democratic Party held an emergency meeting and expelled Ahn with immediate effect.

Hours later the 52-year-old announced his resignation as governor of South Chungcheong province and his retirement from public life.

"I apologise to everyone, especially to Miss Kim Ji-eun," Ahn said in a Facebook post.

"I ask for forgiveness for my stupid action... it was all my fault," he said.

It was an astonishing turnaround for Ahn, who enjoyed huge popularity among young liberal voters thanks to his wholesome image and good looks, which helped him earn the nickname "South Chungcheong's EXO" -- after a K-pop boy band.

Ahn was relatively young in the South's ageing political scene, and likened by many to former US President Barack Obama during his bid for the presidential nomination.

He had been tipped as a front-runner among liberal presidential hopefuls to succeed Moon -- who can only serve one term -- and topped an opinion poll last month on provincial governors' job performance and transparency.

A governorship is seen as a springboard to a presidential bid.

South Korea's next presidential election is not due until 2022 but the country's conservatives are reeling from the massive corruption scandal that led to the ousting of former president Park Geun-hye -- potentially putting Moon and Ahn's Democratic Party in a strong position to retain power.

Ahn threw his support behind the #MeToo campaign in a public speech just hours before Kim appeared on TV to talk about the sex abuse she suffered at his hands.

"That he raped me again after mentioning the #MeToo movement and apologising to me made me think 'I may never be able to escape from this. How can I escape from him?'" Kim said.

National police chief Lee Chul-sung said police had launched a preliminary investigation into Ahn after contacting Kim's lawyers, and vowed to ensure her personal safety.

Fear and loathing

The revelations sparked widespread anger, with one online commentator writing: "Shock, fury... no words will describe how we all feel right now."

A former Ahn supporter was arrested for throwing a baseball bat at his residence on Monday night and breaking a window, according to multiple reports.

Moon last month threw his support behind the #MeToo campaign spreading across the country, urging measures to combat the widespread abuse of women and to punish offenders.

A growing number of South Korean women have accused prominent figures of sexual abuse, making headlines in a country that remains socially conservative despite economic and technological advances.

But many victims are still reluctant to speak out due to fears of relentless public shaming and online bullying.

Kim said in the interview that she had chosen to come forward publicly out of fears for her personal safety.

"I'm afraid of all the changes that may occur in my life after this revelation, but I'm more afraid of Governor Ahn Hee-jung," she said.

"I hope that people of South Korea can protect me... since Ahn and I are so different, I wanted to seek strength from other people and to stop him."

Kim is one of the first women to speak out against sex abuse in South Korea's male-dominated political circles, and Seoul political commentator Bae Jong-Ho said her accusations may encourage others to come forward.

"This was a ticking bomb only waiting to explode," he said. "I think many major politicians are trembling in fear now.

"We're entering a new era in which moral integrity will be considered a big part of one's political career or competitiveness."
