This is a gifted script ably presented. The specific details of false flag actions by US, Russia, Israel, and the United Kingdom are compelling. Excellent concluding focus on how the government has shifted its “anti-terrorist” focus toward gun owners, third parties, and civil libertarians.

Phi Beta Iota: We have never, in our history, watched a more professional, more specific, and more timely call to arms for public intelligence in the public interest. This seven minute video is the cyber-equivalent of Bunker Hill. James Corbett, from Japan.  Utterly extraordinary.  The line is drawn.

John Maguire: SEED-Scale and Establishing Local Resilience

Tags:

John Maguire

SEED-Scale (Self-Evaluation for Effective Decision-making) is a methodology for community-organizing and resilience-building pioneered by the NGO Future Generations. SEED-Scale is a powerful and attractive alternative in an environment presently dominated by the over-professionalized and foundation-funded 501(c)3 Model. Unlike the 501(c)3, SEED-Scale approaches community-organizing from a much different perspective. In many ways it recaptures the spirit of grassroots movements such as AIM (American Indian Movement), and is in important respects similar to the Zapatistas democratic/egalitarian/bottom-up approach in Latin America:

SEED-SCALE offers a solution…It does this by focusing on the one resource available to us all: Human Energy. When human energy is viewed as the essential commodity that will improve lives, individuals are shown to already posses an infinite resource they can build on. Therefore, resourcefulness is the end result, rather than a compulsion for resource consumption. Working with resources already owned—and everyone who is alive owns the resource of their own energy—then technologies, social systems, information, financing will all follow. And if momentum builds around the application of human energy, it will shape to local ecology, economy, and values.

Doctor Steven Greer has been on the front-lines of the UFO-Disclosure and Free-Energy Movement for over a decade. Greer is the founder of the vaunted Disclosure Project that interviewed/documented over 200 former military personnel about their experiences with UFOs, ETs, and Exotic Technologies under oath/signed affidavit.

Later this month Greer and his team will be releasing Sirius, a crowd-funded documentary that may very well eclipse the impact of Disclosure Project. Only time will tell.

John Maguire: Jaron Lanier on How to Not Create a New Cyber Plutocracy

John Maguire

Jaron Lanier, one of the Founding Fathers of Virtual Reality and outspoken critic of Web 2.0, gives a presentation at Personal Democracy Forum 2012 in NYC on Cyber-Plutocracy. Lanier portrays Web 2.0 as a polarized-space where the Monopolization of Data/Network-Based Wealth co-exist side-by-side with the Open-Communities egalitarian drive for establishing Open-Information/Networking/Abundance.

While Lanier views ‘Open’ as a useful meme in fighting power, he also sees it as an incomplete solution. He argues for the necessity of a new middle-class if we hope to preserve net-democracy. Only by rethinking our current net-based economic models could this come to fruition. Lanier promotes a certain degree of monetization to accomplish this goal. He believes that Micro Royalty-Payments for creative-content could serve as a major stepping stone in establishing economic-dignity for a wide variety of net-contributors. Controversial depending on your point of view, but well worth a listen.

John Maguire: Hackerspaces & Open-Source Creativity — Making Up for Educational Shortfalls

Tags:

maguire“Inspired in part by the open source movement, public spaces are emerging where people congregate to share ideas, make cool projects, teach, and brainstorm with collaborators on everything from coding to cooking. With no leaders, they have one rule: “Be excellent to each other.” Take a tour of the hackerspace Noisebridge, located in the heart of San Francisco’s Mission District, with co-founder Mitch Altman.”

With educational institutions failing to provide young-people with the information and skills they need to succeed in an ever-evolving planetary-landscape, the hackerspace movement is helping to fill the void. Kids are coming out of schools ignorant, disempowered, lost, and disinterested. Entrepreneurial spirit and constructive risk-taking are in their death-throws as a result. Alternative educational/cultural spaces are needed now more than ever to rejuvenate this untapped generation of human potential.

John Maguire: Mesh Networks and Pirate Internet

Tags:

maguire“From SOPA and PIPA to ACTA to CISPA to the TPP and now back to CISPA, internet activists have been caught up in a deliberately bewildering game of whack-a-mole with freedom-crushing legislation. Now, ISPs are doing an end run around the whole legislative process altogether and voluntarily collaborating with the entertainment industry to spy on their own customers. All of this is enough to leave concerned netizens demoralized, and in the war of attrition that is exactly the goal. Join us today on The Corbett Report as we explore a real, grassroots, alternative solution to the problem of internet censorhip that can help to end this government/corporate control over our communication once and for all.”

For our interests, if you care to watch this, you could probably just skip to 21.30 ~; as the first half the video is just concerned with discussing SOPA, etc, and general activism that you’re likely already aware of. From 22min till the end is where they really dig into pirate internet solutions and mesh networks that are the meat of the issue.

http://www.corbettreport.com/episode-262-solutions-pirate-internet/

22-28Min: James Corbett and radio-host Jack Blood discuss the possibility for setting up pirate-internet networks as a response to the incessant efforts of internet-fascists and their legislative puppets to pass proposals such as CISPA. Blood mentions his experience/success with localized, pirate broadcasting that circumvents centralized/censored networks.

28-38Min: Clip from a CNet-Trialogue that discusses what are known as Mesh Networks. Mesh Networks, originally conceived of by the Military-Industrial Complex, are a tool citizens can now leverage to liberate themselves and set up decentralized, uncensored internet accessibility. Requiring only a small investment into already-existing radio equipment, people can set up these networks by first adapting their Smart-Phones. Because of their processing power Smart Phones can serve as Mesh Network nodes that allow for the creation of a node-to-node Wi-Fi Network. This allows for the complete bypassing of any potential government lockdown.

38-43Min: Corbett highlights the work of Tony Cartalucci @ http://localorg.blogspot.com/. Cartalucci’s article Decentralizing Telecom explains the practical side of implementing these new types of web-networks at a local level.

John Maguire: Alternative Currencies Centered on Hours

Tags:

maguireWayne Walton explains a new complementary currency that is popping up around the US. Mountain Hours, Mile High Hours, and Island Hours are just a few examples of this voluntary co-operative currency, which allows for more transactions than were previously available connecting more unmet needs with unused resources.

Completely sustainable, shifts power of the monetary system from banks to people.  Voting is ineffective.  Opt out of the monetary system, create your own benevolent local monetary system.

John Maguire: WikiHouse – An Open Source Construction Set

Tags:
maguireHow It Works: “WikiHouse is an Open Source construction set. It’s aim is to allow anyone to design, download, and ‘print’ CNC-milled houses and components, which can be assembled with minimal formal skill or training.”
WikiHouse is an important piece of the puzzle for developing local-resilience and self-sufficiency from the bottom up.   WikiHouse and other ambitious projects such as Open-Source Ecology represent the new-wave of community development/empowerment. There is no shortage of solutions in this world; all the tools for creating a post-scarcity era are at hand.
