“….. 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. ….”

“ … Here is another one. A change in what Human nature will allow for government. "Careful, Kryon, don't talk about politics. You'll get in trouble." I won't get in trouble. 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.

They're going to fall over, you know, because the energy of the population will not sustain an old energy leader ..."

… 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. …

Whistleblowers in Singapore to Get Up to S$100k Reward

Jakarta Globe, Theresa Tan - Straits Times, December 16, 2012

Singapore. Whistleblowers who sound the alarm about tax cheats in Singapore could receive up to S$100,000 ($82,000), after the maximum reward was raised by 10 times.

The Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore (Iras) increased the sum in an attempt to flush out more offenders.

“We want to encourage people to come forward... and to compensate them for any possible risks,” said its assistant commissioner of investigation and forensics, Wilson Ong.

The Iras will pay a reward of 15 percent of the tax recovered, up to S$100,000. Before the increase, the maximum reward was S$10,000.

Ong said whistleblowers will be paid only if their information leads to taxes being recovered. They must also identify themselves to Iras when providing the tip-off if they want to receive the money.

“Based on our records, not all informers want to be rewarded,” he said. “In fact, more than 50 percent of informers do not want rewards. They share the information with us for more altruistic reasons, such as to ensure the fairness of the tax system.”

Ong said the reward scheme had been around for at least 20 years. He added that the largest sum paid out to date was S$10,000, to a senior staff member who felt “very uncomfortable” with his company’s practices.

The whistleblower’s boss was trying to evade paying “a significant amount” of corporate income tax and ended up with a multi-million-dollar penalty after being caught.

Tax experts who spoke to The Sunday Times said offering money to informants is a common practice in other countries such as the United States and Britain.

They added that the Iras’ bigger cash rewards give those in the know about possible wrong-doing a stronger financial motivation to blow the whistle.

Ernest Kan, chairman of the Singapore Institute of Accredited Tax Professionals, said: “For Iras, this strategy appears to be planting more eyes and ears in the business community.”

The authority also encourages taxpayers to come clean about their mistakes under its voluntary disclosure program. Those who do so may receive either a reduced penalty or none at all.

Ong said: “We believe that the majority of taxpayers want to comply with their tax obligations, but occasionally they may make mistakes in their tax returns due to the lack of care or awareness of their tax obligations.”

Since Iras introduced the program in 2009, it has received about 2,700 voluntary disclosures, which Ong described as encouraging.

Most of them are individual income tax cases, including those that arise when people leave out their rental income when filing their returns, or employers who made errors when reporting their employees’ salaries.

From Jan. 1, the Iras is reducing the penalties under this program to encourage more people to step forward.

For example, those who confess to past acts of “willfully” evading tax may have their offenses compounded, instead of being prosecuted in court. They may also face a lighter penalty of twice the amount in taxes that they have underpaid.

At the moment, convicted tax evaders face up to five years in jail and a penalty of four times the underpaid taxes.

Ong added: “Taxpayers are encouraged to review their past tax returns and when in doubt, approach Iras for advice.”
