“….. Here is the prediction: China will turn North Korea loose soon. The alliance will dissolve, or become stale. There will be political upheaval in China. Not a coup and not a revolution. 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. ….”

I'm going to tell you to watch for leadership that cares about you. "You mean politics is going to change?" It already has. It's beginning. Watch for it. 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. …

Taiwan elections - A contest between women

Taiwan is set to have its first-ever female president in 2016 as both the ruling Kuomintang (KMT) and the opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) have named women candidates to contest the presidential election.

Deutsche Welle, 19 July 2016

Unlike China, Taiwan is a democracy. Although Beijing continues to claim sovereignty over the island, the Taiwanese people have been electing their own leaders since 1996. Next year, they could, in all likelihood, even elect a female candidate as their leader.

Taiwan's ruling party KMT today nominated the deputy legislative speaker, 67-year-old Hung Hsiu-chu (main picture), as its candidate for the 2016 presidential elections. Her main challenger is the DPP chairwoman, 59-year-old Tsai Ing-wen. This is the first time in Taiwan's history that two female candidates are running for president. Other potential candidates such as the independent Shih Ming-te or 77-year-old Hsu Jung-shu are not considered to have good electoral prospects.

Unlike female leaders in other countries such as South Korea's Park Geun-hye, Thailand's Yingluck Shinawatra, or Aung San Suu Kyi of Myanmar, neither Hung nor Tsai comes from a political family. Both candidates remain unmarried and have no children.

Prosperity vs poverty

Opposition candidate Tsai comes from a wealthy business family. She worked as a professor of law, and later held several government positions. Tsai first contested a local election in 2010. In the 2012 presidential election, she ran an unsuccessful bid against the incumbent Ma Ying-jeou of the KMT.

The ruling party candidate, Hung, on the other hand, comes from a relatively poor family. Her father was imprisoned for about three-and-a-half years during "White Terror" - the period of political repression in Taiwan beginning in the 1940s by the KMT government.

Even after his release, her father could not find work for the next 40 years. The family had to survive on her mother's meager income. For a while, Hung worked as a secondary school teacher before she became a member of parliament in 1990.

'Intellect vs temper"

The two candidates also have very different characters. Tsai, for instance, often comes across as a typical civil servant or academic and she is polite and taciturn.

Given her similarities with the incumbent president, Yen Chen-shen, a political-science professor at Taiwan's National Chengchi University, even referred to her jokingly as a "female Ma Ying-jeou." The reason for this is that both politicians stem from well-off families and have similar professional and academic backgrounds. The also resemble in the way the conduct themselves.

Hung, by contrast, always seems to say what's on her mind. She is sometimes so straightforward you may forget she is a politician. She has even been involved in feisty verbal exchanges in the Taiwanese parliament, which is renowned for its brawls.

'For' or 'against' China?

I-Chung Lai, Director of Foreign Policy Studies at "Taiwan Thinktank," explained that a candidate's gender has never been an issue in electoral campaigns. Much more important is his or her stance on China, which still doesn't exclude military intervention should Taiwan officially declare independence. Those candidates who have promised peace in stability in their policies towards the mainland have so far managed to get the most votes.

While Taiwan's Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has generally advocated a "de jure" independence of the island, Tsai has repeatedly stated that she would like the territory to remain "de facto" independent - a position supported by up to 80 percent of Taiwanese, according to opinion polls.

Tsai changed her China policy in 2012 after failing to convince voters of the disadvantages of the China-friendly course being followed by President Ma.

By contrast, Hung Hsiu-chu almost squandered her party's advantageous position on the China issue. Ahead of her official nomination as presidential candidate, she made some remarks which some interpreted as support for a reunification with the mainland. Although Hung denied the allegations, they dented her party's image. Party chief Eric Chu ultimately demanded that Hung re-embrace the KMT's China policy.

Differing economic views

It is important to note in this regard that both candidates' economic programs are also linked to the China issue, although in opposite ways. While KMT candidate Hung wants Taiwan to deepen ties with the mainland, DDP candidate Tsai is seeking to boost trade with other countries in order to lessen the island's economic dependency on China.

Recent polls put Tsai Ing-wen far ahead of her electoral rival, and both Professor Yen and analyst Lai believe Tsai will ultimately win the vote. Some 18 million Taiwanese are eligible to vote in the January 16 election.
