“….. 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. …

Officials in China ate up US$48bn in banquets in 2012

Chinese officials ate through 300 billion yuan (US$48 billion) worth of public-funded dining receptions and functions in 2012, reports the Chinese-language Beijing News.

Taking the average cost of each meal to be 1,000 yuan (US$160), that means there were around 300 million public-funded meals in China that year, or around 820,000 a day.

The staggering numbers were estimated by the Jiusan Society, one of the eight legally recognized political parties in China that follow the direction of the Communist Party.

Professor Zhu Guangming from the Beijing Normal University claims that officials, in many places across China, get restless if they don't have dining functions to attend. Some local government officials even spend about 70% of their energy on the dining table, he added.

Official functions are a hotbed for corruption and is a major cause of conflicts between the government and the public, Zhu said.

An investigation conducted by China's National Bureau of Statistics in March discovered that in 2012, departmental-level cadres from the central government averaged 1.1 dining functions per week while department-level cadres from provincial governments averaged slightly higher at 1.3.

The situation is much worse at the grassroots level. Figures show that mayors average 15.1 public-funded meals a week, while county heads average 18.2, the equivalent of 3.6 a day in a five-day working week.

Since Chinese president and party chief Xi Jinping came to power and initiated a campaign against official extravagance and excess last year, the number of public-funded meals have declined significantly. The numbers indicate that central government officials now only average 0.2 meals per week, compared to 0.5 meals for provincial-level officials, 10.2 meals for mayors and 12.2 times for county heads.

The deputy financial chief of an unnamed county told the Beijing News that in the year since Xi initiated the campaign, their province saved around 14 million yuan (US$2.2 million) in travel and meal expenses. In the first 10 months of 2013, the funds dedicated to paying for receptions dropped by 30%, the official said, adding that the budget for receiving guests by the average public servant was also reduced from 10,000 yuan (US$1,600) a year to 9,000 yuan (US$1,440).

As public-funded meals fall, so has the business of dining establishments frequented by officials. Figures show that in the first two months of 2013, the increase in profits of upscale dining venues fell by 3.3% year-on-year, with the operating revenue of such restaurants falling by 35% in Beijing, 20% in Shanghai and 25% in Ningbo in eastern China's Zhejiang province.
