Within the inner circles of that which you call Chinese politics, there will be a re-evaluation of goals and monetary policy. Eventually, you will see a break with North Korea, allowing still another dictator to fall and unification to occur with the south. ….”

You're going to see a total phase-out of old energy dictatorships eventually. The potential is that you're going to see that before 2013.

… 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. …

Cambodia sentences journalist to 20 years

Deutsche Welle, 1 October 2012

A Cambodian court has sentenced a journalist and activist to 20 years in prison. Mam Sonando had been accused of instigating an anti-government rebellion. But critics say authorities are trying to silence a vocal critic.

A court in Phnom Penh on Monday sentenced journalist Mam Sonando to 20 years in prison. Sonando, 71, was accused of inciting an anti-government movement. However, critics say authorities had little basis for the accusations.

Following Monday's verdict, Rupert Abbott with London-based Amnesty International called the sentence "outrageous."

"We believe the motivation behind his conviction is because he's been a prominent government critic," Abbott said. "He's seen, I think, as a threat to the government; someone who's prepared to speak out."

Sonando ran the popular independent radio station Beehive Radio and was president of Cambodia's Democrat Association. In Cambodia, the media scene is dominated by outlets that are generally sympathetic to the ruling party. But Sonando's station often aired stories that were critical of the governing Cambodian People's Party.


Supporters protest the court ruling
against Sonando in Phnom Penh
The charges against Sonando stemmed from a confrontation in May between authorities and villagers in eastern Cambodia. The villagers had been protesting against the expropriation of land. Security forces fired on the protesters, resulting in the death of a 14-year-old girl.

Shortly after, authorities accused villagers of plotting an armed revolt against the government - a claim the villagers denied. Sonando was later accused of inciting the alleged rebellion, which he also denied.

Rights groups say that Sonando's September trial ran relatively smoothly, compared to other recent convictions of protesters and government critics. But they also say the prosecution failed to present convincing evidence linking Sonando to any insurrection.

"I think what we can see is perhaps the authorities here are learning that if you can make the trial look a bit better on the face of things then perhaps you can deflect some criticism," Abbott said. "The problem is, though, the evidence was so weak, we can only come to the conclusion that the decision to give Mam Sonando a 20-year sentence was based on something other than the evidence."

On Monday, the court also convicted several other villagers in relation to the alleged insurrection; they received sentences ranging from several months to 30 years.

Growing unease over land disputes

Critics say Monday's convictions are a symptom of a growing unease in Cambodia over land disputes. Over the last two decades, the government has awarded huge swathes of land to private firms as part of economic concessions aimed at triggering development. But it has also fueled confrontations between authorities, the companies and villagers who say they are being evicted from their homes.

In January, for example, authorities demolished roughly 300 homes in Phnom Penh's Borei Keila neighborhood - the culmination of a long-standing dispute.

In another high-profile confrontation in May, 13 women from the capital's Boeung Kak community were arrested and sentenced to more than two years in prison. The charges were later reduced to time already served on appeal.

But to government watchdogs, the message is that increasingly, authorities in Cambodia are continuing to crack down on its most vocal critics. Last week in Geneva, United Nations' Special Rapporteur for Human Rights in Cambodia Surya Subedi told the UN Human Rights Council that land disputes and forced evictions were continuing unabated.

"There are well-documented serious and widespread human rights violations associated with land concessions that need to be addressed and remedied," Subedi wrote in a report. "Criminalization of land activists and human rights defenders is particularly worrying, as freedom of expression and assembly is crucial to a well-functioning democratic society."

'Unfair' findings

The government, however, disagreed with Subedi's assessment. Phay Siphan, a government spokesman, said the special rapporteur's findings were "unfair."

"It was kind of out of date," Siphan said, noting that Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen earlier this year announced a moratorium on granting new land concessions. "[Subedi] obtained second-hand information. It's not updated to what's going on in Cambodia."

Siphan also disagreed with critics of the Cambodian court system, maintaining that the judiciary and government operate independently.

Still, Monday's convictions and lengthy sentences came as a surprise to some observers.

"It's pretty sad," said Ou Virak, president of the Cambodian Center for Human Rights. "It's pretty sad this court hasn't improved in the past two decades. With all of the money, with all of the push, with everybody trying to come up with all kinds of indicators and all kinds of strategic meetings, here we are with a court that is basically a political tool."
