      reading about this then thinking about the role of civil society in general, we’re really lucky to live in america, despite all the problems it has going on, people can basically do what they want and fight against whatever systems they see as unjust, and really can change the way things operate when the passion is there. in sooo many other parts of the world people won’t even talk about politics or the dominating power (ie the multinational corporations crushing the local economies everywhere), let alone actually have an organized group to represent the majority of the people. por ejemplo, human rights groups and civil societies are banned from ethiopia. banned.

      that being said, don’t really know what to think about when civil society in Mali is so active to block a law that would state that ‘women are no longer required to obey their husbands, instead husbands and wives owe each other loyalty and protection.’ http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/8223736.stm

      it IS amazing that we have the freedom to enact change in our country and even abroad as citizens of this country. positive things have happened so many times, and often it starts with just a handful of people and eventually tips over into widespread trends. we have come a long way, have a long way to go..
      the danger tho, is that in a lot of ways our power as citizens is really limited and becomes more so on a regular basis. we often have the illusion of freedom in this country, i think, and without some changes to the fundamentals of our society, idea sets and government, we will be chasing our own tail to eternity….

      that said, i am glad that are still avenues to persue and positivity to manifest. it starts local and next thing you know, its global. entonces, cambio es posible y riquisimo!
      smile power!
      (that mali shit is crazy, but its how democracy works. thats the key diff between it and representitive government, right taka?)

    kites look like peace 

    via AP

    //

    BEIT LAHIYA, Gaza Strip – Thousands of children in the Gaza Strip attempted to set a new world record Thursday by flying colorful homemade kites amid the ruins of Israel’s bruising offensive earlier this year — a rare display of joy in the isolated seaside territory ruled by Hamas militants.

    The festive event, sponsored by the United Nations, brought some 6,000 campers in orange uniforms and blue caps to a beach in Gaza’s war-torn north, where they released their kites into clear skies. Some included designs such as the red, green, black and white Palestinian flag.

    “We are happy we came here, full of joy, full of life,” said 11-year-old Marwan Mohammad. “We hope that we can be free and can enjoy the same freedom these kites enjoy in the air. All we are looking for is to grow up like normal children.”

    “I do not want to talk about what you understand about this world. I want to know what you will do about it. I do not want to know what you hope. I want to know what you will work for. I do not want your sympathy for the needs of humanity. I want your muscle.” – Robert Fulgrum

      Clandestine Insurgent Rebel Clown Army (C.I.R.C.A) was there it looks like, or a similar group. What more can you do when brainwashed med approach you in full riot gear? other than dress up like a clown, act goofy, dust off their shields, make jokes, and honk your nose. 🙂

    sociocracy 

    we are going through crazy times. there is a lot of fear being projected everywhere. we are in a time of great flux. i need to keep reminding myself to stay grounded and remove myself from the cycles of fear and mis-information and push posivity into the universe. we need to be informed. we need to be connected and we need to push for change.

    if we are as a society to be bound to this dimensional existanse for a little longer, we may as well transition away form the fascist state we live in now, to one like SOCIOCRACY. baby steps?

    as we learn more of the atrocities and sketchy behavior of our current system (which is rearing its ugly head with such force as it dies out) we need to provide alternative ways of living. that is the power of the new zeitgeist, and is the power that information grants us.

    THE NEXT STEP

    be peace
