…The revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people”
-John Adams, 1818
To those still willing,
Another year drudges on as millions of under educated, apathetic, and disenfranchised Americans accept the fate of failure as their only birth right. Month by month, our ranks are thinned and filled with disloyal applicants or those bent on disinformation and self-preservation. The cliques are getting bigger, and now fight for no other reason but for the chance of being right. We have lost more then a few good men, our loyalty to a cause, or our word. We have lost the integrity of our mask and all the responsibility that comes with it. We have lost it all because no one can rely on our once great promise: We will never forgive and we will never forget.
I look now at the shambles of the great Anonymous, the SAME Anonymous known for supporting the citizens of the world and all I see makes me sad. I hear of nothing but infighting, distrust and disloyalty on a scale unheard of by most just years ago. These acts are carried out not by strangers, but between friends and allies. The hive is not simply losing its power, but has lost its power. Not by any great force, or any one agent but because simply of inaction. The core of Anonymous is being rotted because our power is based on a unified front, not the bickering we see all around us. The fight is not over who leads – because we ALL do in our own right. The fight is not over who is more skilled, or what they may be – because we are ALL essential to our cause. The fight is not over fame because the mask shares but one ego. No friends, the fight we are fighting against today is simply inaction and today I propose we change the course of Anonymous, and maybe history will judge us fairly.
“If not us, who? And if not now, when?”
– Ronald Reagan, 1985
I bring this call to arms to everyone. From those who have never been active, but wish to, and those who have never stopped. It is time to get back to basics and fight the governments’ propaganda machines placed in our ranks. It is time to shower those placed inside us to break us down with a good, old fashioned, paper storm.
I call upon those with writing skills to publish revolutionary tomes of truth.
I call upon those skilled in arts to publish revolutionary Artwork.
I call upon those with the luxury of time to combine the two, those with the resources to print them, and those with the courage to distribute them!
Lets speak about our privacy being stolen, our security being compromised, our freedoms being denied and our future being sold. Lets rally in both virtual chart rooms and physically full ones. Speak loud not just of a government revolution but a cultural one. Scream from rooftops and hash-tags, front lines and paper stacks. Leave no sign post, empty book, shelf or hand empty of our mark. For too long we have allowed the very machine we fought against ot steal our heroes and reclaim those we have freed from bondage. This MUST end today! Do not simply start this discussion, the time for talk has passed! Act now or abandon your mask along with all hope because push has come to shove and it’s time the hive act as one again. I will leave the logistics to the hive because I have seen greatness rise when its called upon. Go now to recruit, educate and overcome so that Anonymous is no longer the stagnant force it is considered now.
“Silence in the face of evil is itself evil.
God will not hold us guiltless.
Not to speak is to speak.
Not to act is to act.”

#Syria #EducationEven4Girls | These amazing girls is one example:
Yamama and her cousin Hayat are Syrian refugees, but they’re in school in part because our community raised $1 million in a challenge grant to donor governments to save Syria from a lost generation of children without education. We just got word that governments have matched us over 100:1!! UN Education Envoy Gordon Brown called our effort “magnificent” and “important in getting governments to give.”
But ofc teh answer to my own q is simple. I love being part of a bigger world. Where small ppl can be big. I`m a small boy with thousands of friends on teh interwebz. Stretching four continents I actually make a difference. I get to be a small cog in teh big world. I get to take part in big events that change teh world – for teh better. How can I not love #Avaaz?
Take #MalalaYousafzai for instance. She fought for education for girls in Pakistan and got shot in teh head by teh taliban for it. She is bigger than God. And I got to be a little part of telling teh world about her. She did not die. I did not die. I love it.
Please support Avaaz.org – only using y0ur voice or dontaing a few dollars. Just two or three – to be a small but big part of teh world. 🙂

Good news for #Anakata | not so good for teh one being threatened but clearly grounds for optimism as teh co-founder of #TPB goes to trial 4 months from now / Danish and Swedish police flying half way around teh world to try to find some way to prove that Gottfried was teh only person with access to teh computer that allegedly was used to hack into a bank.
Gottfried`s lawyer should immediately contact this “John” in Cambodia as a witness to teh fact that 50+ people had access to his computer.
My main question right now is, why there was a Swedish policeman there? His Swedish conviction was overturned and Gottfried is now in Danish jurisdiction. Anybody else feel something strange going on behind teh scenes?

Popular pirates excluded from EU debate
Copied in its entirety from European Pirates
European Pirate Party candidate for the President of the European Commission, Amelia Andersdotter, has been denied participation in a debate with the other candidates. This despite the fact that Amelia, together with Peter Sunde, are the most popular candidates according to the organization VoteWatch’s poll.
Today, April 28, the televised “First European Presidental Debate” is held in Maastricht in front of 700 young voters. The debate is announced as taking place between the nominated candidates to the presidency of the European Commission; however, Amelia Andersdotter, Member of the European Parliament for the Swedish Pirate Party and nominated candidate, has been excluded from participating.
“I don’t like to see myself as a victim. However, the fact that I’m denied access to the first debate between candidates, despite us having followed all the rules for participation and having political support, makes me feel censored for the first time during my time as an EU politician”, says Amelia Andersdotter.
Amelia Andersdotter was nominated for the presidency along with Peter Sunde, former spokesperson for The Pirate Bay, by the European political party European Pirates, which Andersdotter is the chairperson of.
The justification for the exclusion is that she has worked together with the Greens/EFA group in the European Parliament and somebody considered that since one of the candidates who will participate in the debate is from the European Green Party, Andersdotter’s participation would give them two candidates from the same movement. This argumentation has holes, however, as the candidates are nominated by the European political parties, not by the European Parliament political groups.
This decision seems to be taken by the organisers despite the fact that Andersdotter and Sunde’s candidacy has received the highest support by those who have participated in the organisation VoteWatch’s poll.
“I have made my utmost efforts to be represented in each of those debates where European top-level politicians present their visions for the future. There is no reason to block me from these debates just because my political party has been good at cooperating with other political parties in the European Parliament. This is very poor behavior from our competitors. We’re the the youngest party by age of members. Ousting us from a debate targeted at young voters is nonsensical and shows someone is misusing their position”, states Amelia Andersdotter.

#Enlightenment #Activism | inspired by Thomas Jeffersons thinking
/ Once you understand teh world, you can take part in improving it /
Before you embark on a mission to take part in changing teh world, it is your duty to learn all you can about teh ideas behind your cause. It means listening to your enemies, friends, media, history and those living in teh middle of teh hell that may be your reason to partake in an attempt to better their world.
Be it Palestinians, Tartars, Muslims, jailed anons, children in need or simply millions of Syrian refugees – there is always much to learn. If you biindly follow teh flock or special interests you are bound to make more harm than good. Enlighten yourself before jumping up and blindly sharing other peoples ideas and words.
This is my belief!
