The censorship-free alternative media platform Minds went down temporarily on Thursday, but came back online shortly after. When the site came back online, representatives of Minds say that the outage was a result of over 200,000+ new people signing up for the site one the same day. A large number of sign-ups were from Thailand, where increased internet censorship has forced users from mainstream platforms like Facebook and Twitter.

“Yesterday we saw 200,000+ new users. We are thrilled to provide privacy, internet freedom and digital rights for Thai netizens. This is exactly the reason Minds exists,” Minds CEO Bill Ottman said in a statement.

Some of the most notable social media users to recently migrate to Minds includes Wiroj Lakkana-adisorn, an MP for the disbanded Future Forward Party; social critic Sarinee Achavanuntakul, writer-translator Tomorn Sookprecha, satirical TV host Winyu “John” Wongsurawat, and academic Pavin Chachavalpongpun.

“We are immediately building out our translation and localization framework for Thai and many other languages. This should be finished within a few weeks. All of our project is fully open source at https://developers.minds.com and people can submit requests at https://gitlab.com/minds. They can also inspect our software to make sure we aren’t manipulating algorithms or user privacy. We already have Thai developers helping with the code and building new tools,” Ottman said.

David Wilcock Releases Important New Ebook About Attacks on Alternative Media

By Robert G. O’Leary

David Wilcock’s new release, entitled Declas: Social Media Nukes an Entire Generation … But Why is big – in terms of its number of pages and in terms of the breadth, depth and importance of its subject matter. It is a 258-page EBook which has just been made available online.

We are living through amazing times right now – full of great uncertainty and great promise. These are days of double-speak and double-crosses – liars spend a great deal of money hiding their mendacity by controlling and paying off social media organizations to demonetized and demonize truth-tellers. These paid-off social media organizations, such as Google, made part of their reputation as purported champions of net neutrality and free speech.

David Wilcock provides us with some insights into why social media giants are turning their backs on their customers (and in some cases even their profitability and long-term viability). He describes how organizations, like Google and Facebook, are controlled in part by some of the same people who co-own prisons, weapons manufacturers, and parts of the recording industry.

David discusses his own nightmarish experience with YouTube (a subsidiary of Google). He describes how other YouTubers would take his relatively small number of YouTube videos (30 or less in number) and “repackage” them with different names and recent dates and put them out as supposedly new videos. This was done without his permission and contrary to any copyright or other protections which he has over that content. He goes on to describe how YouTube proved to be a faceless, non-transparent, and unresponsive monolith – all despite hiring numerous lawyers to assist him.

Many of us have grown up on YouTube or have grown to like it as a replacement of sorts for the heyday of MTV and VH-1 –times when they aired music videos instead of endless (mostly sub-par shows). We fell in love with it, like the music stars that appeared on it. We found new musical acts on YouTube. We found obscure cuts from our favorite artists. We even found that we could listen to new releases of music, from our old favorites, on YouTube.

This channel was so cool, and helped us to cope with the irony of seeing classic rock stations refuse to play new music from the very musical acts that were indirectly paying their paychecks. For me, personally, Steve Perry released a great new album late last year, called Traces, after 24 years of silence in terms of any new recordings. He appeared on some of the TV interview shows and on some radio stations, but rock stations generally would not play his music. He was a big hit in places, like ITunes and on some of the charts, but in spite of (not because of) mainstream radio. And he was played by certain YouTubers. In fact, that is how I found out that he had released an album.

Yet YouTube has changed. The alternative media website, “We Are Change,” discussed this a couple of months ago, with its video, “Its OVER For Us and Independent Media HERE”:

Another video that discussed these developments was “The Golden Age of YouTube is Over”, on the website, www.theverge.com.

This new phenomenon at YouTube is monumental. Yet, many people may not really comprehend its magnitude. David Wilcock uses a “What if” scenario to help to bring it home for his readers. He asks us to imagine what would have happened if musical artists of the 1960’s and 1970’s had been suddenly de-funded, left to pay for their musical production, and development on their own.

Imagine a world in which John Lennon made a career of working in a local music store in Liverpool, Michael Jackson was a teacher in Detroit, and Pete Townshend ran a bookstore after his efforts at writing fiction and poetry never panned out.

Imagine they all did music on the weekend, and had fans regularly ask them, “Dude, why aren’t you famous, your music is amazing. To be sure, many talented musicians out there have had the talent to make it big, but never got the opportunity to do so, or blew any opportunity they were given.

The artists who did “make it,” have had tremendous impact upon our culture, inspired us, empowered us, brought us through depression, and even saved our lives. Some music has taught us to look at our world in a different way, and even to work to make it a better place to live.

Alternative media has made its own mark on our culture and is perhaps more homegrown and  unprocessed than even the music of the 60s and 70s, since we must keep in mind that only some artists were allowed through the gatekeepers of artist and repertoire for each of the music companies. David Wilcock shares insights about these subjects, and do much more, in this release. I urge you to check it out in its entirety, at the following link: Declas: Social Media Nukes an Entire Generation … But Why

David Wilcock also gives his take on why YouTube would be seemingly undermining its own interest by attacking some of its stars, and potentially losing out on its own revenues. His is a compelling explanation that suggests very nefarious and surreptitious actions are going on behind the scenes to support the status quo and the so-called Deep State’s interests.

MSNBC Just Admitted: “Our Job” Is To “Control Exactly What People Think”

By Claire Bernish | Activist Post

MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski just erased any lingering doubts the corporate press serves almost wholly to vomit propaganda in order to control public perception, in a rather stupefying statement during an exchange with Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough about President Trump possibly “trying to undermine the media.”

“Exactly. That is exactly what I hear,” Scarborough stated. “What Yamiche said is what I hear from all the Trump supporters that I talk to who were Trump voters and are still Trump supporters. They go, ‘Yeah you guys are going crazy. He’s doing — what are you so surprised about? He is doing exactly what he said he is going to do.’”

“Well, I think that the dangerous, you know,” Brzezinski replied, “edges here are that he is trying to undermine the media and trying to make up his own facts. And it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens, he could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think. And that, that is our job.”

Pause and consider what Brzezinski actually said — whether or not the latter sentence constituted a Freudian slip.

A corporate media presstitute — whose game of career musical chairs saw her leaving mainstream, right-wing Fox News for mainstream, left-wing MSNBC — just told the American public it’s the media’s job to “control exactly what people think.”

That statement comprises the most blatant — if perhaps tacit — evidence pro-U.S. government propaganda measures passed with the 2017 NDAA have already begun.

Mass media has for decades entrenched itself surreptitiously on the side of the ruling political establishment, using the tool of feigned neutrality to manipulate the public into thinking its reports aren’t thoroughly infused with whatever the current agenda might be.

Apparently Brzezinski and her corporate press ilk finally feel the same looming threat of censorship burdening alternative and independent outlets, which have experienced as much throughout the last election cycle. What they conveniently forget, however, is Trump salivating over media control differs negligibly from calls by the same mainstream outlets during that election season not to give credence to information revealed by WikiLeaks — nor to disseminate the (accurate) reports based on those documents proffered by alternative media.

Indeed, this dissonant, hypocritical indignation over Trump’s unmistakable effort to tailor information to suit his agenda, however justified the observation is, handily demarcates a battle between the old guard of corporate media turned government mouthpiece and the new guard of an authoritarian administration testing limits of information control.

Two arms of the same arrogant censor.

But censorship of the free press has been a grave concern of independent media for months, as corporate outlets scampered to deem any reporting on multiple scandals involving the DNC and candidate Hillary Clinton ‘fake news’ — or even Russian propaganda — no matter the proven validity of the information.

That soft censorship might have suited the interests of the previous political establishment’s favored narrative — and provided a comfortable impunity for mainstream press to sanctimoniously skewer independent reporting — but the lack of foresight the oppression would eventually come full circle to apply across the board is laughable.

Perhaps MSNBC and other behemoth organizations underestimated the extreme executive powers former President Obama bequeathed to Trump — as well as Trump’s leeway in implementing more.

MSNBC’s offense at the manipulation of facts and fictions rings hollow when it and other mainstream outlets evince an established pattern of the same. That’s at least fairly close to — if not exactly — the pot calling the kettle black.

However, pointing out astonishing hypocrisy in demands for soft and hard censorship could these days be a new sport, the examples happen with such frequency. Instead, both sides — the corporate press and the political establishment, including Trump — have ramped up the measures necessary to guarantee freedom of the press will decline in coming years without hypervigilance.

And hypervigilance is an absolute necessity, now that there is no room to deny the sordid and unseemly marriage of censorship and propaganda — facilitating control of the public mind — championed openly by corporate America’s loyal lapdogs: media and government.

Google Declares War On Alternative Media: Plans to Punish “False News” By Halting Ad Revenue

google-censorship

By Whitney Webb | True Activist

Google has decided to make itself the arbiter of what is “true” and what is “false,” placing alternative media in the cross-hairs of its war on free speech and the free flow of information.

Since the US Election’s “surprise” outcome, supporters of Hillary Clinton have been searching for who and what to blame. One of the more bizarre theories circulating has been that Google, Twitter, and Facebook, who WikiLeaks revealed were actually colluding with Clinton’s campaign to get her elected, were to blame for distributing “fake” and “false” news that painted Clinton in a bad light and “unduly” influenced public opinion against her. In order to take the heat off of themselves, Google and Facebook have now announced measures that will target so-called “fake news” on the internet by cutting off how the writers of such content make money – advertising.

Google sets due to the most damage to alternative news content creators as its AdSense advertising network. AdSense allows advertisers to place text ads on millions of websites that are a part of its network and is a major source of money for many publishers. In the wake of last week’s election, Google is now working on a policy change that would prevent websites that Google deems “false” or “misleading” from using AdSense. Google has long had rules for AdSense, such as barring ads from appearing next to pornographic or violent content. It uses a combination of human and artificial intelligence to comb through sites’ content, with the artificial intelligence learning from sites removed from the program, making the process faster and more efficient. Essentially, Google is hoping to starve websites that don’t fit the mainstream media’s “truthful” narrative. Fil Menczer, Professor of Informatics and Computing at Indiana University, told Reuters that Google’s new policy “could cut the income that creates the incentive to create the fake news sites.” Facebook has followed suit by updating its own advertising policies to include “fake news” in its ban on deceptive and misleading content.

However, there’s a big problem with all of this. What is “fake news”? Anything that could be construed to be a “conspiracy theory” could easily be placed in this category, as could any content that is critical of the “system,” of which Google is a part. More importantly, why is Google being allowed to be the official arbiter of what is true and what is false on the internet? It seems doubtful that Google would target the lies of the mainstream, corporate-owned media since it is beholden to those same interests. Considering Google’s significant CIA connections, there is likely an agenda here. Trust in the corporate media is at an all-time low while the viewership of the alternative media has grown significantly. This change has happened, in part, because of dishonest reporting from the corporate media. For example, after this year’s election,The New York Times admitted its election coverage had been partial and inaccurate and promised to “rededicate” themselves to honest reporting. However, they and other media outlets like them will not be targeted by Google’s new policy.

By cutting off the alternative media’s income, Google can help kill off the dying corporate media’s competition and lessen the alternative media’s competing narratives. If people are legitimately worried about “false” news, they should investigate or look to confirm any and all stories they read. If there are no hyperlinks or sources in the story and it cannot be confirmed elsewhere, caution is urged. Regardless, people should be able to make up their own minds about what they are reading, not be forced to let Google make that decision for them.

Corporate Media Declares War On Alternative Media as “Fake News”

o-media-facebook-compressed

Source: Activist Post

The establishment media is dying. This is not a biased view coming from “alternative media,” it is a fact borne out by metrics and opinion polls from within the establishment itself. It was true before the recent election, and is guaranteed to accelerate after their shameless defense of non-reality which refused to accept any discontent among the American population with standard politics.

Now, with egg on their face after the botched election coverage, and a wobbling uncertainty about how they can maintain multiple threads of a narrative so fundamentally disproven, they appear to be resorting to their nuclear option: a full shut down of dissent.

Voices within independent media have been chronicling the signposts toward full-on censorship as sites have encountered everything from excessive copyright infringement accusations, to de-monetization, to the open admission by advertising giants that certain images would not be tolerated.

However, until now these efforts have appeared random, haphazard, and rife with retractions and restorations of targeted sites and content. A massive backlash of reader outrage toward these restrictive measures has confirmed that most consumers don’t like the idea of being given boundaries to their intellectual freedom.

That said, there has been a notable increase of hoax websites beginning to populate the information stream. We can attest that this has been an incredible annoyance as we are bombarded daily with new outrageous claims and rabbit holes that readers expect us to sift through.

Most times, a cursory glance at the “About” page or any disclaimers quickly shows where this information is coming from. Other times, a bit of common sense and discernment about why a site that has just appeared on the scene (check Alexa for this info) would have “EXCLUSIVE” “BREAKING” content under the banner of an apparent local news channel or a name that is the twisted version of a legitimate news outlet.

But even with those caveats, we’ve all been taken in at one time or another and have had to retract or update articles as necessary, or apologize to our e-mail list for sending out a given link. This does jam up the works, but it is the tax we all must pay if we believe in the free-market of ideas and information. We’re not perfect, but at least we have never been deliberately misleading like CNNand others often have been.

The government recently legalized using propaganda against US citizens. They wielded all of their establishment media force to sell their lies. And now they’re frustrated that people still prefer the truth as they see it naturally.

As The Verge highlighted in a recent article, “Two-thirds of the world’s internet users live under government censorship.” Although this is roundly decried by establishment media as evidence of “declining freedom,” this is exactly the path we are heading toward at the behest of that same media within those areas that have managed to thwart such a reality.

The voices of the corporate media are making a show of calling Facebook to task for evidently not having stringent enough algorithms to discern legitimate news from deliberate hoax. We are being told that this very likely led to the election of Trump, and that this has become a major problem in need of a major solution.

The first shots are being fired as we speak. Yesterday we learned that Facebook and Google would take swift action against “fake news” by de-monetizing or banning them outright.

“Moving forward, we will restrict ad serving on pages that misrepresent, misstate, or conceal information about the publisher, the publisher’s content, or the primary purpose of the web property,” a Google spokesperson said in a statement given to Reuters. This policy includes fake news sites, the spokesperson confirmed. Google already prevents its AdSense program from being used by sites that promote violent videos and imagery, pornography, and hate speech.

(Source)

This is problematic on a number of levels, not least of which is the vague notion of what constitutes violent imagery and hate speech. War, of course, is what should first come to mind when thinking of violence. Police shootings and other clashes might qualify as well, but routinely populate the most mainstream of sources. And one person’s hate speech is another person’s dissent.

The second component is that of transparency, where we see claims about any effort to “conceal information about the publisher.” Again, very vague, but as any journalist worth their salt knows, it is anonymity which leads to the truth more often than not, especially when threats against journalists and whistleblowers are demonstrably on the rise.

Today, the mainstream media named us as one of the top “fake news” sites to avoid. It’s quite an honor.

US News (linked above) has published a list of websites that it deems unworthy of support, and is essentially urging to be de-monitized or banned based on the previous calls to action.

Here are several fake news sites that have become popular on Facebook, and which should be avoided if you’re looking for the facts:

Firstly, the grouping of satire, hoax, and propaganda is troubling, as the definitions of each aren’t even remotely related to one another.

Satire is literature and has a tradition dating back thousands of years; it has been recognized as an essential component of intellectual and political freedom. A deliberate hoax, we can all agree, is lacking integrity, purposely deceptive, and can be legitimately harmful or dangerous. Propaganda, though, is aligned with the State; and most commonly is directed and funded by the State.  That is a serious accusation and one that is entirely without merit for this website. It is also an especially ironic and dubious accusation coming from an outlet called US News.

Yet we’re proud to be biased for peace, love, and liberty. Anyone against those principles is serving fake news as far as we’re concerned.

All of this is to say that we are entering dangerous new territory, as the Internet itself is under a new regime with the transfer to ICANN, an international body. If 2/3 of the globe is under digital dictatorship, what else is the likely outcome from such international control over information?

However, it is also an exhilarating time to be a part of such mammoth upheaval, where the entrenched apparatus of the State itself has declared information to be its enemy and to acknowledge that it must do everything in its power to maintain its tenuous monopoly on the truth.

The unfortunate reality for them is that the truth will always be more efficient and, therefore, simpler to disseminate than the complexities of lies and true propaganda.

CLN RADIO NEW EPISODE – The Last Avatar Movie (and Beyond!)

Alexis speaks with producer Sharron Rose (and wife of Jay Weidner) to discuss their latest film project – The Last Avatar

There are many Hollywood films that are brilliant at drawing the viewer in to the depths of emotion. 

Whether it’s laughter, tears, or the grips of fear, Hollywood has made it their business to use emotion to get our attention and keep it there, if only for an hour or two. But there are some films that have a lasting impression; whose message is powerful and authentic enough to stay with us for many years to come. The Last Avatar is one such film. In my interview with Sharron Rose,  the producer of this epic adventure, we discussed all of the implications that this film brought to light. Even the darkness that has cast a shadow over mankind for millennia. But The LAST Avatar was simply the FIRST subject we covered – a powerful springboard of sorts – that launched us into a range of extraordinary and fascinating terrain and a path that Sharron knows so very well.

The Revolution is LOVE (and the Litmus Test for the Present Moment in History)

By Fatima Bacot | fatimabacot.com

“Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality.”   ~ Martin Luther King

dark and light

We are deep within an historical moment of mythic proportionswhere not only does the Light loom large, but the Shadow also, in a revealing, disclosing, ‘apocalyptic’ dance of ideological enmeshmentand uncertain outcome. The titanic struggle to reboot the patriarchal worldview into a worldview kinder, sacred and more honouring to all the people of the Earth and to the Earth itself, is occurring on numerous fronts simultaneously across the planet.

It feels like we are reaching some kind of ‘point of no return’, which millions are unaware of and unprepared for, but which heralds the descent into a transmutational dark night of the soul for the collective, out of which will come a renewed understanding of who we really are, and how dependent upon each other and the Earth we truly are for our wellbeing. We will discover at last what makes humanity truly human, and what it is to be ‘human’, on the other side of so much turning away and of what is currently a defacement of our humanity as we witness grave inhumanity at large.

We will come to realize that we are interconnected and interdependent after all, just as themystics have always said and leading-edge physicists tell us now, and we will recognize these far more deeply than we imagined we could, or thought we would even need to. We will find we need one another, and weary of propaganda, ‘necessary’ war and destruction at last, we will learn to stand up for ourselves and reclaim the resources we have entrusted to untrustworthy authority figures, and that they have trashed for spurious gain. We will learn to reach out and to love again, and to remember we are connected to everything and everyone, always and intimately.

And we will remember from deep within ourselves that ‘what goes on over there’ is not independentof ‘what goes on over here’ because we will feel it to be so.

The Age of Separation and of operating as if in vacuum is coming to a head, as we come to connect the dots in the blaze of expanded feelings and social media exposure, and as the various crises, lies, and propaganda reach into our own communities, lives and futures, demanding our attention and care.

BEING BROKEN OPEN

RadiantHealth-TomCurtis

This writer has been broken open countless times in the last weeks over appalling events occurring in Gaza, with the faces and bodies of over 1200 deaths, injuries to 2,000 children, 1,170 women, and 257 elderly (as at 29 July 2014)…swimming in her thoughts and lancing through heart. Her heart has been broken open by the senseless deaths of the passengers of Malaysian MH17 and the geopolitical tool it has become to escalate the re-started Cold War between the US (and its compliant partners, the UK, the EU, Australia, NZ, etc), versus an increasingly demonized and sanctioned Russia, so that American hegemonic dominance of oil, gas, resources and US fiat currency can continue their global strangleholds at all costs. This writer has been in shock as lie upon lie screamed through mainstream media for the hearts and minds of human beings, to buy their complicity and assent in the jockeying for strategy in the relentless race for empire at the expense of all else.

We have entered a surreal, hyper-state of affairs, and it is becoming increasingly clear to many that what is occurring is doing so at such high (yet deeply covert) levels, with billions of your taxpayer dollars backing up the execution of these weapons and plans, and with the people, THE PEOPLE, mere pawns and ‘collateral damage’ in these too-fast-unfolding, colliding, dizzying events….wherever in the world they are happening (and being engineered).  It is as if the historical record is being obliterated so that people cannot remember who did what, when….even if it was only a few months ago.  And you are funding it all.

The point here is that these powers will stop at nothing to ensure what they want. And the fact is, they don’t care about ‘the people’ despite their rhetoric. They don’t care whether your air is fit to breathe, or your water safe to drink, or your food is safe to eat, or how many civilians are bombed to smithereens in the countless theatres of war worldwide, and those emergent.

Did you know…….

90 percent of the large fish in the oceans are gone, there is ten times as much plastic as phytoplankton in the oceans, 97 percent of native forests are destroyed, 98 percent of native grasslands are destroyed, amphibian populations are collapsing, migratory songbird populations are collapsing, mollusc populations are collapsing, fish populations are collapsing, and so on. Two hundred species are driven extinct each and every day. If we don’t know those statistics and trends, we should.

This culture destroys landbases…And it won’t stop doing so because we ask nicely.

We don’t live in a democracy. And before you gasp at this blasphemy, ask yourself: Do governments better serve corporations or living beings? Does the judicial system hold CEOs accountable for their destructive, often murderous acts?

Do the rich face the same judicial system as you or I? Does life on earth have as much standing in a court as does a corporation?

We all know the answers to these questions. ~  Aric McBay, Lierre Keith, Derrick Jensen

.

NOT IN MY NAME

power of the people

In this age of authority passing away from the customary ‘leaders’, it is the people themselves that have stepped into the vacuum, and it is they who are protesting in the thousands worldwide, posting on social media, praying, filming and writing, etc……because they love and care enough. There’s nothing coming from any of these governments or their financial backers and compliant media machines that say anything about ‘the people’ and what might assist humanity and the Earth beyond slogans and Orwellian double-think.

If you ‘follow the money’, ‘follow the oil and gas’, ‘follow the land grabs’……….you will find it’s the same people, their companies and their government lapdogs.

Their actions speak for themselves, and in the same way that they are not speaking for civilians but justifying their deaths instead, they are not speaking for you when they allow fracking, GMOs, drones, muzzling of your journalists, cuts to independent media, fake budget emergencies that have those that can least afford it doing the ‘heavy lifting’ whilst corporates continue to receive bailouts in the billions (or while your country’s Treasurer tells another country’s leader that there is no budget emergency in their country, even though they are trying to ‘sell one’ in their home country to ram home austerity packages, as happened in Australia just last week), or gas and fracking licenses are handed over on stealing/occupying another’s lands (as with the Ukraine and the Golan Heights most recently).

Always you must ask yourself:

  • Who has motive? What is the motive for sacrificing children and human beings, environments, rights, and in whose name and for what ideology/reason is it being done?
  • How do these ideologies and reasons reflect who I am, who I want to be, and the world I want to live in?
  • What is the corporate-controlled mainstream media propagandizing about this time on behalf of party lines, and involving my assent, my name, resources and the taxes I pay?
  • What am I really funding, and for whom? Who benefits?
  • How does this affect freedom, sovereignty and justice for both myself and my children, and their future?
  • Why are they cutting back on education, health, pensions, scientific research, independent media, bank regulations, environmental protections when they are handing over billions in taxpayer dollars for corporate bailouts?
  • Why are they signing a ‘free trade agreement’ in complete secrecy?
  • Who are their political donors, and how are they benefiting from the taxpayer dollars that I pay and that has been removed from essential services that I value?

Why ask yourself these things?  Because it’s your children, resources, money, land, and futurethat they’re manipulating and affecting…and that they use as ‘collateral damage’ to their own aims.

Ask yourself if what is being done in your name, with your ‘vote’ and with your money, will result inpeace, in clean water and air, fertile land, press freedom, good food, right human relations, right use of resources for the people, intelligent infrastructure, in LIFE.

Steel yourself to NOT let go of the wheel and hand over even more of the power that these groups are busy grabbing in the most covert ways imaginable. There are huge ‘tests’ going on worldwide now (at Universities and theatres of war simultaneously) with regard to the management of social media, your thoughts, emotions, and of dissent, too.

The only real check against corruption is vigilance. That was the death of republics: they thought the system was enough to protect them, that they didn’t need to be involved. Citizens let go of the rope, nobody voted, nobody got educated on the complexities of governing. And the corporations moved in.   Nichols Soutter

.

power hierarchy

We are talking about groups who have at their disposal vast amounts of power and money through what happened when too many of us were sleeping and they rigged their heavily concentrated banking systems, directorships, ‘trade agreements’, lobby groups and thinktanks, and of course, corporate-controlled media. They drive out dissenters, and they relentlessly supply the narrative of the ‘good guys and the bad guys’, who to vote for, ‘budget emergencies’, and plant seeds in the minds of less critically-thinking types to guarantee compliance so that these agendas can continue unhindered but funded by YOU.

They take money away from you, your children, education, health and they give it to their backers.

They destroy environments for short-term gain and hand them over to foreign investors who contribute nothing to your country’s economy, or nothing in terms of opportunities for you and your children.

“I don’t know about you, but I didn’t become an environmentalist because someone made a rational argument that convinced me that the planet was in danger. I became an environmentalist out of love and pain: love for the world and its beauty and the grief of seeing it destroyed. It was only because I was in touch with these feelings that I had the ears to listen to evidence and reason and the eyes to see what is happening to our world. I believe that this love and this grief are latent in every human being. When they awaken, that person becomes an environmentalist.” ~ Charles Eisenstein

And it doesn’t have to be about becoming ‘an environmentalist’ either. There are any number of vacuums to fill for yourself, your children and the future….if you love, if you feel, if your heart breaks open enough.

We can only do this and be this if we are willing to see, hear and feel enough…..and be changed by what we see, hear and feel into someone more empathic, compassionate and motivated than we may be right now.

LITMUS TEST

https://generationbass.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/artworks-000024872354-7nr33c-original1.jpg

Are these killing games not the litmus tests of our own ‘humanity’ and what it means to be human? To feel? To be Conscious? To be awake, alive, sentient?

Does it matter ‘whose side you are on’, when the end results are these?  Does Empathy take sides?

What does looking away reflect about one’s ‘humanity’, or the lack thereof? Is it really ‘their karma’ when everything and everyone affects everything and everyone else?

Are these events not reflections of something greater that we are not seeing, hearing? The things we cannot feel, that we don’t want to feel and wish would go away? That we have yet to fully mature into, and be deepened into? Can we put these people, faces and events in a box and hope that they stay there, so that they no longer affect us, or our share portfolios?

How much violence is enough violence? When will we grow sufficiently weary of violence as a solution and turn our hearts to care for one another enough?  Will enough of us choose empathyand make a difference to the current, global trajectory today, or will it be tomorrow?  Will we reach out to ‘the other’ and transcend the death machine based on our imagined separation from one another?

What is it going to take to transmute what is occurring except our own radical personal transformation, enough Love, and our engagement…….to reflect the Oneness we sometimes so easily speak of? What is Oneness?

What might a Planetary Culture based upon Love look like?  How does one begin to create it?

I said

I said: what about my eyes ?
He said: Keep them on the road.

I said: What about my passion ?
He said: Keep it burning.

I said: What about my heart ?
He said: Tell me what you hold inside it ?

I said: Pain and sorrow.
He said: Stay with it. The wound is the place where the Light enters you.   ~ Rumi

ALL IS A MIRROR

cosmic consciousness

We are in a huge, apocalyptic shift. We have an awakening global population that has the trashers deeply worried and working the propaganda machines over time.  The awakening global population is made up of people who feel, people who love, people who care, people who are engaged..and this is wonderful.

We need to keep going and to see how it’s all connected because we need each other now…..because enough Love must return to our hearts.  Because there is a ‘clear and present danger’ in the unregulated, trashing-train called Corporatocracy…and something else on the horizon, if you are able to read the signs. To pretend it’s not there is foolish and it is to also miss the evolutionary, mythic moment of your own becoming and of the potential awakening into a better-functioning planetary society…a New Earth. It is to be consciously or unconsciously complicit in agendas that will affect the wellbeing of both humanity and the earth, in real-time.

Quantum physicists and mystics alike tell us that everything is connected, and that our thoughts and emotions impact the Universal Intelligence. Because everything is connected, we are all the co-creators of our past, present and futures. As such, we are responsible for what is going to show up in our future, too, and we are laying the groundwork now of our children’s future.

What is within, is without……….and all is a mirror. The more we run from the shadows, the larger they become:  Are they not large enough now?

We are called to take deep personal responsibility as part of reclaiming lost power and creativity. Power that has been surrendered through patriarchal cultural conditioning, religious conditioning and the deterministic worldview, amongst other elements….and that keep us split, disconnected, docile, separated and imagining we operate in a vacuum. We need to face the toxic beliefs that no longer serve us and that are within the dominator worldview and recognize that the disconnection lives within. As long as it lives within, it will also exist without. Only radical personal transformationcan move us to where we need to go next in the evolutionary trajectory.

We have all heard it said, ‘Never again’ when speaking of atrocities long past, and yet these thingsare happening again.

“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing. ~ Edmund Burke

THE REVOLUTION IS LOVE

These crises are about LOVE. The lack of LOVE.Engaged Love. The kind of Love we have when a loved one is ill.   We stop at nothing, don’t we, so that they can be well.  The kind of Love we have when we speak of wanting the best for our children.  These are the small but life-changing acts we perform in the service of the Love we feel for those dear to us.

…LOVE is Revolution.

…LOVE is revolutionary.

…The Revolution is about LOVE, and loving enough.

This is a Worldview Crisis and an opportunity to establish a far greater, more loving, connected, abundant Worldview in which to nest and to thrive. We can choose to move beyond a Worldview based on separation, and on conquest. Separation from our feelings, separation from the knowledge that we are connected to one another at the deepest, most intrinsic levels of our Beings. There is no separation. We ARE One.

The Revolution is LOVE because the crisis is about what happens when there is a lack of Love by enough people to create a wasteland. Think about it. We are witnessing a polarized, split humanity that has forgotten we ARE one another’s keepers. It is about loving enough to do something in the name of those civilians, and in the name of clean air, clean water and a clean earth for our children.  It’s about wondering who will stand up for you or will come to stand with you when the trashers decide they want to come frack your land.  Either you value the Great Barrier Reef, or not. Either you value the Colorado River, or not. Either you value Life, or not.

What we neither value nor love enough, gets trashed. It’s as simple and as daunting and powerful as that.

Each time a person stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, they send forth a tiny ripple of hope….These ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.   Robert F Kennedy

We have great power within and can access great creativity, freedom, imagination, connection, compassion, care and Love. These are powerful, healing and revolutionary states. They form the new worldview and help us to articulate what we want and enable us to act, when we love enough.

These are powerful, healing and revolutionary times. If enough of us love, we can build a critical mass and we can realize the potential for a Sacred Worldview. Because we are Consciousness Itself, we are one Its Power and Intelligence. We are limitless. We can make the necessary changes if we recognize who we are and we love enough.

The moment does now ruthlessly ask us what we are made of, what we want, what stories we tell ourselves about our imagined powerlessness, victimization and hoped-for salvation by outside agencies or, even, by pretending nothing is going on. It impels us into what really matters and what we really value, and whether we can forge the personal dignity, respect and Love to draw lines and boundaries. It confronts us into the discomfort of facing and transforming ourselves and of consciousness-raising to overhaul internalized, enshrined victimization, and to steer our ship other than along its current, destructive trajectory.

All the foregoing is beckoning for a humanity caring, connected and mature enough to step into a more responsive role.

This moment is ruthlessly bringing to light where we have fooled ourselves and where we have given power away en masse. It has far too many believing in war as a peace-and-freedom-enabling strategy, or something going on ‘over there’. There is no ‘other there’, just like there is no ‘them’.

These old, old powers are angling for another Cold War, and perhaps more (as per the Wolfowitz Doctrine and others). Observe, and you will see how they are moving the chess pieces around right now, and you will see it reflected in their rhetoric in what is a well-worn script and well laid-out in the public domain. And yes, there is great Light to expose these machinations, but it is not over yet.

The sooner more of us wake up to these violations of our trust, the sooner we can reclaim so much of what has been lost, and that is currently at stake. The sooner we can articulate a vision of what we value, the sooner more of us will get up off our knees. So, if you pray, pray that the hearts of humanity awaken and the hearts of global leaders soften. If you petition, petition some more. If you are a legislator, ram it on home. If you are a gardener, plant good seeds. If you love clean air, water and land, stand up for them.

The crisis is Love…

The revolution is Love..

The solution is Love…

Enough Love…

Love is the Key to all of this.

Conspiracy Theorist vs. Coincidence Theorist and The Importance of Alternative Media

Alen Mischael Vukelić | Wakingtimes | Jan 27th 2014

hand-of-conspiracy2The impact and significance of alternative media continues to grow every day. Critics from the mainstream like to discard it as an outlet for conspiracy theories and amateur journalism. Is it really this simple?

Or is the mainstream media becoming aware of this fast-growing underground movement that seems to start threatening their very existence? What is conspiracy and what is coincidence? And which alternative media project is the boldest so far?

I’ve had great difficulties to start writing this article, having in mind all the accusations and misunderstandings which might result from it. After a couple of days, I finally have the right mindset and vocabulary to put this thing into motion.

Originally, I wanted to jump right into the topic that I’m going to talk about later, but I came to the conclusion that I will have to write a lengthy introduction to give you the whole story to it.

Going underground

I could start with Adam and Eve, but I will skip this part, and go straight to the year 2010, where – I guess some time in October – my wife and I were watching a sort of documentary called “Zeitgeist”. It was the initiation to a series of investigations we started making on the Internet without having any particular idea of what we were actually doing.

I’d say it was pure curiosity for a world we didn’t even know it existed. We started watching endless streams of other movies and documentaries related to everything what questioned the reality which we knew for so long.

And after maybe a year, it was the first time that I – consciously – encountered that people who were unaware of this material had a name for people who were investigating this sort of material – conspiracy theorists.

Light bulbs and helmets

The first time I heard it, I had to laugh about it, since I couldn’t see any connection between the stuff I was reading about and the name that these topics were given.

For instance, I was really into investigating those low-energy consuming new light bulbs that are now mandatory in most of the western world, and I found out that they contain mercury, and if this kind of bulb got accidentally broken you would have no chance of avoiding to breathe in this toxic chemical.

The other thing was that these same bulbs are thrown across all dumps of this planet, further contaminating our environment. In one interview, a European commissioner who was involved in the mandatory usage of those bulbs said that it was true that they were toxic, but the chance of breaking such a bulb was very low he said.

This was his whole statement to an issue like that. At the same time, people all over the world are increasingly encouraged to wear helmets on bicycles to avoid head injuries.

While checking out the Internet on this subject, I found many sources reporting how the industry was pushing for the new bulbs to become mandatory for an one and only reason – they cost up to ten times the amount of the old bulbs.

Lobbyists got this whole thing through by selling it to the governments in an environmentally interesting package called ‘low-energy consumption bulbs’. I’ve read certain reports claiming that Europe might be able to reduce the consumption of electricity by around 2-3 %, which – surprisingly – hasn’t materialized yet.

Even if it were true, are the other risk factors for health and environment outweighing the electricity bill? Well, while investigating those things, I learned that we who make such unnecessary and insulting claims are called – conspiracy theorists (the new heretics).

How to print your own money and charge somebody interest on it

One of the first things I learned in this new area was that the Federal Reserve Bank of America is as federal as the delivery company FedEx, and that this central bank was initially capitalized and established by very wealthy and influential people in 1913. They were given the power to create (to print) money and charge interest on it.

So that, in fact, all governments borrow money from ‘their’ central bank, and the people have to pay that same money back with interest to the ones who created that money out of – nothing. A really easy way to make money, isn’t it?

I must say this was quite a shock to me, because I became aware of the enormous power that this brings. You might say that entire countries have to work to pay back their loans with interest to people they have never heard of in their lives (especially through the petrodollar system).

This is a rather huge topic, and I will try to break it down just to the essential part, but I would definitely encourage you to read about it. There are also many documentaries out there like the mentioned “Zeitgeist” series which can give you an insight into the world of central banking and money-creation.

Well, to cut it short, there is in fact no need for interest, if the people or their representatives, the government, own their central bank, interest becomes unnecessary, and business banks can abandon the whole interest system and hand out loans just increased for their handling costs.

The fact is that every corporation, company, every single person, is working for bankers who don’t need to do anything but create money out of nothing and to charge you interest on it, for something that every nation should own in the first place – the power to create money. Imagine if you could buy your house without interest? Your car, your clothes – everything.

You pay your debt through work, the government through inflation

The bankers are always using the excuse called – inflation, meaning that we have to pay interest to meet the rate of annual inflation, while, in fact, they know very well that inflation exists because of their massive gains made from interest.

These huge loads of money are being spent on real goods like houses and properties, which make prices rise indefinitely, which in return is called ‘economic growth’, which in return is eating up the public debt through inflation.

I know this sounds complicated to someone who hasn’t done research on it, but believe me one thing – it isn’t. People in power love to make you believe that it is something that you cannot understand while it is, in fact, the opposite.

The system is relatively easy to understand; it is just camouflaged behind an impressive scenery of board of directors and huge buildings and seals that make you think that you can’t possibly understand what this whole thing is about. Or – like some say: “They surely know what they are doing!” or “I would certainly know if they scammed us! ”

Oh yes my friends, they know what they are doing, and no, you wouldn’t know about it, because these guys are genius in what they are doing. You work for them, because everything you buy during your lifetime has an interest on it – in some way or another.

Gambling debt becomes public debt

Like in the recent economic meltdown of 2008, they have made you pay their shopping spree of the years preceding the event by turning all losses into public debt – genius. Imagine you would spend all of your money and the money of everybody you know, and in the end you would make them pay the whole cost of it without you ever getting punished for that.

Please do some research on this, and find out how the people of Iceland refused to incorporate the gambling debts of their bankers into their public debt – successfully.

I understand that this is a very simplified version of what actually happens in an economic system; however important is to know that financial institutions live a parasitic life.

Credit cards are another great example, where banks get a percentage on all goods and services purchased with ‘their’ card, and which allows them to charge everyone involved down the whole food chain – from manufacturer, seller, and buyer – they all pay all sorts of fees for what? For transferring their money from one place to another?

Why should they make interest on everything that is happening around the world? We could easily turn off this system and pay just the actual prices of any goods and services. Banks good be just as independent as they are now, and serve the people for achieving their goals and not the goals of the bankers. If it weren’t true, then why on earth is banking the most profitable business on this planet?

Searching for truth? Don’t be ridiculous.

Well, the reaction to my research was very good in my immediate surroundings, but I could see that other people had difficulties in investigating this stuff without being called – conspiracy theorists.

I believe this term was coined not by ordinary people, but by people in power to give those who are doing these researches a hard time, to make them look ridiculous, foolish, or outright crazy. I would even call it a modern witch hunt, because witches were burnt for knowing things they shouldn’t know.

It has been like this for eons, people who question the system are considered a threat, and people in power will do everything to prevent them of having any authority among people, and the best way to do it is to make them look ridiculous. It is a complete nonsense to believe that there is such a thing as a homogeneous mass of people believing the same thing among questioners (conspiracy theorists).

Moon landing, JFK, and alien invasion

The first thing that I get asked sometimes is if I question the moon landing or the JFK assassination and other conspiracy ‘classics’. I must say: I don’t know, because I haven’t researched them – they simply don’t interest me.

I don’t care if we’ve been on the moon, because it doesn’t mean much to me, the thing with the light bulb is much more important to me, because it affects my health here and now, and affects the environment that nourishes me and the people I live with.

Was JFK shot by Lee Harvey or by some intelligence service – I don’t know. Are there aliens out there? I haven’t seen any, but I have seen people on the Internet claiming that they have. Are they lying? I don’t know, but I believe that it is quite possible that there is more life out there in this universe – after all – it’s really huge.

However, none of that interests me in particular, and I can’t speak from my own experience. But have I seen corruption and lobbyists? Yes, I have, because I was a business owner for almost 15 years, and I can confirm that it functions like that. Do I need to have a good connection to influential people and the local industry to become even a mayor – absolutely.

Coincidence theorists

I like the newly coined expression that is used among questioners for people who don’t question anything – coincidence theorists. The coincidence theorist believes that everything that happens is – coincidence. He or she believes that the industry never uses money and power to influence politicians to do something for them.

They believe that judges are honest people who never make mistakes, and if they do, then it’s a – coincidence. Researchers are honest and integral people whose only aim is to do good for humanity, to improve mankind with technologies we have never seen before.

They believe that they work in conjunction with the industry to help us to achieve – whatever we want to achieve – with their products and innovations. Those are selfless people, working for the common good, for their country, flag, and history. Sometimes, there do happen mistakes, but never on purpose, and never for their own personal gain.

Which medicine does a pharma industry shareholder like best?

Pharma industries have no interest in selling drugs to make profits for themselves; they do that to help people get well as soon as possible. They have absolutely no interest in doctors having many patients, in fact; they want to prevent that by giving you the best medicine they can think of.

And what would be the best medicine from a shareholder’s point of view? I have found numerous stories on how the pharma industry is actively preventing the research and promotion of remedies that might actually work or be free of any charge.

But of course, there is no system or intent behind this – those are isolated instances, better called coincidences that just happen. It’s funny how conspiracy theorists are – many times – called naïve. What would you call this what I was just talking about?

The end of the world as you know it

I understand that this whole subject is awful and unpleasant to a lot of people because it literally tears down everything one believes in, the whole structure, the root of one’s life, and to accept that, is not easy.

I encounter this on forums and social media discussions; people react violently to those kinds of topics, because they are unable to face the amount of lies that they have received over the years. And I understand that – completely – because it was a pretty painful experience for me too.

There was a lot of anger and denial before being able to face it its entirety – this ongoing deception we were fed to from little on. And yes, to step out of the mass and to stand alone is not easy at all, to see the reactions of people who don’t know exactly what you are talking about and so on.

But all in all, I have to say that people do understand better and better every day, that their awareness of these kinds of subjects keeps rising, and I could almost say there is a sense of ‘mainstream’ getting into this truth-movement, forming a new crossover of very sane people, a sort of ‘by-coincidence-conspiricy-theorists’, who will transcend this gap between people – eventually.

The problem of you and I

The bottom-line is to understand that there are no real coincidences in the sense of how people see it; people who have power are using it – as simple as that. Do you use your power? And now imagine that you have much, much more power than you can ever imagine.

I know what you are going to say now: are all people bad that are in power? No! The problem is, in fact – you and I. I have spoken with many people during those years, and many said to me: “Somehow I can understand that they (people in power) are doing it, because – after all – who wouldn’t? Wouldn’t you do the same?”

This is what they asked me. And there I realized it isn’t their fault; it’s ours, from all of us, because we don’t understand it is wrong to act in a way that benefits only a minority and has no benefits for the majority whatsoever. The truth is, we were made to collaborate by our very nature.

If you start researching, you will find out that Darwin was wrong (what most scientists know anyway). His observations in the survival of the fittest – which, in fact, was just a small part of his work, completely overvalued and misused to initiate competition among people – has overseen the crucial factor of harmony and collaboration, which is ubiquitous in all of nature.

Since nature is not ‘part’, but a whole called – nature, which sustains itself perfectly, which takes care of every aspect, even of the tiniest recipient of this universal play of energy and light.

It’s easier to cope with aliens than myself

Let me stress another thing here before finally going over to the actual topic I was going to write about; the fact; that most so-called truthseekers are wasting their time on insignificant facts and topics, which have very little actual influence on their lives.

I don’t say this just to give this article a proper balance – no – I really believe to spend your time reading ‘predictions’ of WW3, alien invasions, or Obama being born I-don’t-know-where, a complete waste of time, because of one simple reason: You can’t influence it.

As far as I’m concerned, this is a great hiding place for not doing anything, but to criticize something that is completely out of reach and – in fact – insignificant – to your everyday life. None of that you will be able to prevent if you don’t change yourself first (like WW3).

By hating the Chinese or Arabs you will not contribute to world peace – that’s for sure. It’s just so convenient to have an outside enemy to give him all the negativity and hatred that you have in yourself – not very helpful at all.

Solutions are unpopular – you have to actually do something

My own little goal is to find solutions, especially for things I can influence, those that are mostly very challenging to implement in my daily life; things that make me think: My God am I really doing this? And when I change one of those things, then I know I have contributed something to the common good as well – without really doing anything outside my yard.

So naturally I like people who offer solutions and not just discussions, because it is boring just to talk about things without doing them. And so now finally I will catch up with my original article which I started writing first, but figured that it’s impossible to go into this thing without telling you all of this first.

Since the inception of this project, that I’m going to talk about, I was having my eyes closely on it for one very reason – it offered solutions and action – here and now.

Is it important who does something or what is being done?

Many people, be it mainstream or alternative media, complain about low quality, biased media content, with bad presenters, and corporate controlled topics and outputs. Well, and now when finally someone decided to do something about it, started a crowdfunding campaign ‘to take on the mainstream media’, all I can hear is criticism.

First because ‘world renown conspiracy theorist’ David Icke is involved, and second because ‘it’s just stupid’ (good argument). What is this? Are you serious? You are dismissing such an important project, because you don’t really like the people that are involved?

Tell me, who would satisfy your criteria? And are we in the position to choose arrogantly or should we grab the possibility that is right here in front of us? I tell you something what I believe: If it helped the project to succeed, I think anyone working on this thing would do whatever it takes. This is my personal view on this, that those people came together to do something real in their lives.

It’s just ignorant to see it as a David Icke project – because it isn’t. There are so many people involved, it’s impossible to mention them, but if you know the alternative media, then you know that many other names are working on this thing. I see so many hardcore conspiracy theorists – with their McDonald’s hamburgers – worrying about alien invasions, complaining David Icke not to be the ‘real deal’.

I mean come on, get out of your sofa, stretch your butt muscles and start doing something about real issues which you can actually influence right now! If you don’t agree with David Icke, then throw him out and take over the TV station, do something, anything!

This station is reality

I can really understand the frustration on The People’s Voice TV station when they say: we did our job, now you do you yours (by donating some money), because this is really everything you have to do. Give a few bucks every month for a project which can have a real impact on the media landscape for relatively little money.

I have seen it before so many times, that when it comes down to action then everybody hides in their mouse holes, hoping somebody else is going to do the job for them, and then when the storm is over (which I hope won’t happen) they come back, out of their holes, preaching their same-old lines of what should be done in the future, blah, blah.

Here it is, a vivid project, in front of your eyes, ready to start off, and all you have to do is contribute some of your crystallized energy (cash).

Before arguing – test the content yourself

I think anyone complaining about the station hasn’t seen one single show, because if he did, he’d know they work on 30 in-house productions of which almost half are already on air, dealing with all sorts of topics, from health to Internet tips, and yes, also classified and forbidden subjects, which our brains are sometimes still unable to process.

In that sense, I hope you will take some of your precious time and tune into this new television to give it a fair judgment without pre-chewed media classifications and prejudices a la ‘conspiracy’, ‘David Icke’, and others.

Do your own research, and don’t let others tell you what to think. It’s ignorant to penalize hundreds of people who work on this project and thousands who have given their money to support this thing by disliking one single person.

Who do I support? The project.

I hope David Icke is not going to be angry with me, because I’m using him as an example. Maybe someone doesn’t like Luke Rudkowski from WeAreChange, who is working on that project; maybe someone doesn’t like Max Igan, who is working on that project, maybe someone doesn’t like Russel Brand, who gave his support to this project, and so on. But is this important after all?

Or is it important what this station can do for all of us? I hope you see what I mean. Listen, I’m not an utopian; I have been in business for many years, and I know this thing can be gone tomorrow, but all what I want to know for myself is: Have I done everything that is in my power to support something that I wished for so long? My answer is yes – I have done everything.

I could go on with this forever, but I won’t because this is not what this article was going to be about.

Here is the point where I originally started – no joke.

The People’s Voice – a 24/7 alternative media TV station

This article is going to be one of my all-time favourites, because it reflects what I believe to be a truly important and unique moment in the time of mass-media. There isn’t, in fact, any event which could come even close to what is happening right now on The People’s Voice TV station. I say this bluntly and directly as it only can be.

This project is exactly what I have always dreamed of something to be – in terms of engagement, vision, connectedness, timeliness, and purpose. All of these essential qualities for a magnificent undertaking, brought together under one hood, to do the right thing at the perfectly right time.

Enough

I’m probably not the only one who is completely fed up with this current mainstream media system, which serves nothing but itself and those who finance it.

Since I stopped watching television over three years ago, my perception of basically everything that is happening – be it locally or globally – has changed so drastically, almost impossible to describe to someone who hasn’t experienced it by oneself.

Sometimes, when I look back at my endless years of watching national TV news; I feel embarrassed by the quantity of lies and bias which I was made to listen to. It’s a kind of feeling of being cheated by someone for decades, eventually waking up under a cold shower.

It is an extremely embarrassing moment when you realize that you’ve believed all this nonsense that they have fed you over the years. I guess this is the main problem for people who still refuse to see what it is all about – to recognize consciously that everything you’ve been listening to, is nothing but a constructed reality by those who had an interest to construct it for you.

Politics and corporations are using the media to sell their product regardless of the outcome of their doings.

Integrity and credibility of media

It’s just amazing for me to see how they have managed to use the authority of an ‘independent’ media reporting, to bypass the people’s natural suspiciousness so successfully. As far as I’m concerned, I believed everything they said; maybe I wouldn’t agree on everything, but all in all, I thought that the information was correct.

Thank God for the Internet, which makes it possible to re-check almost every statement the media makes in less than five minutes. Of course there are also many bad sources of alternative media reports, but after a very short period of time, you learn how to choose reliable sources.

What I like, in particular, in the alternative media is that the line between spirituality and state has been washed away without them ever really being aware of it. If you look well, you see that almost all stations and platforms have little problems with implementing all sort of topics into their stream without losing any ‘credibility’ by doing so.

What comes to my mind is, that this essential part of our very existence has naturally found its way back to where it belongs to – to everything we do. It’s time to end this era of media moguls and celebrity presenters who serve nothing but to promote ideas they’ve been paid to promote.

Real journalism is long dead – if it had ever existed, which I’ve started doubting simply because of the amount of lies and inaccuracies that have been sold to us over the years.

I don’t think that this new TV station is the answer to every problem, but it definitely is an honest attempt to do something about this apathy among people who want to see a change in the media landscape.

It’s so easy to criticize a project and discard it as illusional or utopian and to hide inside the masses screaming: “Idiots!” But isn’t it amazing that someone actually tries to do something about – THIS?

What’s the deal, anyway?

I’ve learned that I don’t speak to everyone, and that many people probably disagree, and don’t really see any urgency in any of this; some just want a small tweak here and there and keep the system in its core as it is.

Well, I think it should be much more radical and the change far more fundamental than that, and this is what this TV station does; they don’t rely on any history – because they have none – and their motive is coherent: they are all fed up with the system.

Glimpses of how instrumental alternative media can be, has already been seen by numerous independent news websites, which popped up in the last five years or so; there are real journalists out there, working their a**** off to collect some real news and real investigations on topics the mainstream media wouldn’t even take a look at. And all that, with little money, cheap equipment, lots of obstacles – and lots of ridicule.

No one would believe how little money most of us enthusiasts make from this – because it’s mostly – none or very little. And to tell you the truth, I believe it would be great if people would get paid for what they do, like in any other job. Is it any less important?

I don’t why, but when you do something which is good for people in general, then there is a perception that this work should be without charge. Good idea, but then everything should be free of any cost, shouldn’t it

Should alternative media have one huge platform?

Recently, I’ve watched a podcast from James Corbett where he speaks against some sort of centralized platform for the alternative media, because he believes it would be vulnerable to outside manipulation and that the journalists would have to conform to some sort of agenda or compromise, since even two people can sometimes hardly agree on something, still less four or more people.

I believe this station is something completely different, because it grew organically and is not the product of a balancing of interests. The presenters and journalists on TPV are real people who have done all sorts of things in their past, which have brought them together into one moment to do something, which goes beyond their own interest – and this is what makes this project so unique.

I know they struggle to find a steady financial income to stay on air, because all funding has come from the viewers and other enthusiasts and supporters; and that they hope to get more funds from advertisers, and that things will be difficult for some time before reaching some sort of stability – all I can say is I hope they’ll make it, because I think many aren’t really aware of how precious this little station is, and that it has the potential to grow into something we can’t even imagine right now.

Watch this station

What I definitely need to emphasize at this point – again – is that anyone who claims this station to be just a David Icke outlet, should sit down and watch two or three shows before making a judgement – because this is what I did; I sat down and watched several shows with a clean mind and what I saw really impressed me.

Straightforward, unbiased – and anyone who thinks this is a conspiracy theory station – is also wrong. Again, sit down and watch at least two shows and make your judgement afterwards. From the shows I have seen so far, I would highlight: Unleashing Creativity, Host: James Gordon Graham:

(Editor’s Note: This video is presently unavailable because someone hacked the TPV and deleted their YouTube content. In our eye’s this is another sign of the value of the work TPV is doing, so please consider supporting them.)

There are of course many other shows (like The Richie Allen Show, The Middle East Show, Wakey Wakey, WTF, Hidden Science, Windows on the World ……..) which you can choose from to get a glimpse of what they are doing. Most can be found on their youtube channel, but best is if you watch them live.

I want to finish with this on a high note, because if you have come so far with me all the way to down here, then I can only be thankful to you for taking your time and understanding for this thing. I hope I was able to give you an insight into a world that looked a bit strange to you from outside, and that you will perhaps consider engaging in this project with a much better understanding of this whole topic.
