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. …

India's 'Pink Warriors' take on injustice

Clad in pink colored Saris and armed with sticks, a gang of women is fighting rapists, corrupt officials and patriarchy in India.

Deutsche Welle, 3 June 2014

An ordinary woman living in a village in northern India saw a man mercilessly beating his wife. Her attempts to intervene backfired and she too ended up with a beating. The next day she returned with a lathi (a bamboo stick) and five other women and gave the man a beating just like the one he had given his wife. News spread and this ordinary woman, Sampat Pal Devi, was hailed as a warrior and her group was soon known as the Gulabi Gang or the Pink Gang. Devi specifically chose the color pink to signify "womanhood and understated strength."

"Women are always treated like dirt by men, especially in rural villages, where most women are illiterate and have no knowledge about their rights," she told DW.

Today, Sampat Pal Devi's group today has over 300,000 members spread across the villages in the state of Uttar Pradesh. She has opened schools and training centers for women where they learn to sew, weave baskets, and other skills that can help them make money and become independent.

 Gulabi Gang, is an inspiring story of
revolution in rural India

Sampat herself was denied education and was married off at the age of 13. Having borne her first child at a tender age, she suffered abuse at the hand of her in-laws, who were unrelenting until she later gave birth to a boy. In the male-dominated Indian society, Sampat believes that by giving women an option to earn a livelihood is just the first step. "Women need to be educated and made aware of their rights so they can fight back abusive husbands who try to chain them to their household chores, stripping them away of all freedom."

On a daily basis Sampat meets young women who were forcibly wed to older men, suffer domestic violence and are harassed for dowry. "These men they think too much of themselves; you have to show them where they stand."

While the members of the gang are trained to use bamboo sticks and are prepared to use them on tyrannical men, Sampat says that the media has wrongly portrayed her group as a bunch of women who do nothing else but beat up on men just for fun. "I don't believe in violence, but a woman needs to protect herself. The stick is self-defense."

Beyond the household, the Pink Gang has been able to put pressure on corrupt government officials by exposing illegal activities such as siphoning off wheat and rice allotted to the poor of the village.

solidarity to fight against injustice

Inspiration for film

In a deeply patriarchial part of the world controlled by feudal landlords, Sampat and her warriors are fighting to bring about a change in society. Her story inspired Nishtha Jain, a documentary filmmaker based in Mumbai. Jain herself is from Bundelkhand in central India, which is also the birthplace of the gang. The story was close to Jain who spent several years making the film Gulabi Gang - A Documentary, which was recently screened at the 14th New York Indian Film Festival. The documentary follows women in the rural landscape of Uttar Pradesh narrating their tales of woe.

Jain deeply admires Sampat and has been inspired by her film's protagonist and her feminism. "The film was an exercise in telling a nuanced story, an attempt not to romanticize, simplify or look for resolution within the framework of the film," she told DW.

Her film was received very well in India, though she said it might not resonate as well with audiences in the West for cultural reasons. There is, for example, a in the film which shows Sampat advising a woman who had been beaten by her husband to go back home. Sampat believes a woman's rightful place is her husband's home.

"What other options does a woman have once her husband kicks her out? My aim is not to uproot women from the society they live in, but ensure them a place of dignity in their own household," Sampat explains.

Larger than life role model

Juhi Chawla plays the role of
 a corrupt politician in the
Bollywood film Gulab Gan
Sampat's group has also inspired a Bollywood film titled Gulab Gang. Although the film is a work of fiction and is a commercial product with sharp dialogues and larger-than-life scenes with unimaginable fighting sequences, it draws upon Sampat's struggle.

The character of Sampat is played by Madhuri Dixit who stubbornly and courageously challenges corrupt officials.

The corrupt politician is played by Juhi Chawla, a veteran actress who tries to coax Rajjo (played by Madhuri Dixit) into supporting her in the coming elections. Like Sampat, Rajjo and her pink gang fight against corrupt officials and abusive husbands. They become vigilantes and bring about a change in the society around them.

"In a way, our film salutes these women," Juhi Chawla told DW. "They have been very brave, they have very little for themselves but they stand up for others, and help other people, and that is a big, brave thing to do. With very few resources, they stand up and fight against injustice."
