"There is no need for us all to be alike and think the same way, neither do we need a common enemy to force us to come together and reach out to each other. If we allow ourselves and everyone else the freedom to fully individuate as spiritual beings in human form, there will be no need for us to be forced by worldly circumstances to take hands and stand together. Our souls will automatically want to flock together, like moths to the flame of our shared Divinity, yet each with wings covered in the glimmering colors and unique patterns of our individual human expression."
— Anthon St. Maarten (via quotes-shape-us)

You know how a bird
held captive for too long
approaches an open cage slowly
as if unsure of their freedom
before taking off without looking back?

Life seems so full of those moments.

Facebook, Netflix, Google, Microsoft and more send powerful net neutrality letter to the government

Politicians might not understand the finer points of net neutrality, but they have heard of Facebook, Google and Microsoft.

That’s why over 100 of the biggest tech companies in the world banded together on Wednesday to send a letter to the Federal Communications Commission. The agency is currently debating net neutrality regulations, which many fear will allow Internet service providers (ISPs) to arbitrarily hike up their prices. Theoretically, these telecoms would be able to offer a tiered service to websites, charging them more money for faster service.

"I will accept any rules that you feel necessary to your freedom. I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do."

"Everything you do right now ripples outward and affects everyone. Your posture can shine your heart or transmit anxiety. Your breath can radiate love or muddy the room in depression. Your glance can awaken joy. Your words can inspire freedom. Your every act can open hearts and minds."

TPP is coming. Will you help save the Internet?

Barbara [2012] - Set in 1980 of the country side of East Germany. Barbara is a doctor who was sent to the small country hospital after applying for the exit visa to leave the godforsaken communist state… 

my favorite scene of this great movie involves the famous painting The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp by the Dutch painter named Rembrandt

Andre- I’d like to go to The Hague. That’s where the Rembrandt is. Didn’t you notice anything? The painting. The man lying there is Aris Kindt. He’s just been hanged for theft. It’s Doctor Tulp giving the anatomy lesson.
 
Barbara- They should have cut open the abdomen first. But they dissected the left hand instead. There’s a mistake. The hand is wrong. It’s the opposite one. It’s the right hand and it’s too large.
 
Andre- I don’t think Rembrandt made a mistake. You see the atlas? It’s an anatomy atlas. They’re all staring at it. He is, he is, they all are. And the hand is painted like a depiction in the atlas. Rembrandt includes something that we can’t see, only they can: the depiction of the hand. Due to this mistake we no longer look through the doctor’s eyes. We see him, Aris Kindt. The victim. We are with him, not with them.
^ I think what Andre is trying to say is that they’re just the victims of experiment for the sake of greater good as it’s depicted in this painting for doctors to learn anatomy without actually feeling any remorse/gratitude for the victim because they’re all too busy following the direction on the Atlas.
It correlates to the experiment of Communism era where your freedom is severely restricted by the police state government that decides what’s the best for you without any considerations for your thoughts/opinions. Thus they become the victims of this social experiment. 
Which is why Andre said “We are with him, not with them.”

Just finished watching the documentary called Ai Wei Wei: Never Sorry.

This man is another great example of how can a simple idea can spark a catalysis affect within people to demand change & justice against the machine.

That happens to be the biggest that to the Chinese communist party because their propaganda is useless to those who have awoken.

Also the Jasmine revolution/Arab spring have all started with the idea which then toppled several tyranny regimes by the people. That’s the power of idea and people.

Lastly I hope Liu Xiaobo will be freed from the prison. He’s the winner of Nobel peace prize of 2010.

A writer who demanded justice, freedom, and change for the corrupted Chinese official’s policies is currently imprisoned.

power to the people.

QuestionHi Sam: Are you an American? And if so, why won't the Americans see how their "gun culture" is despised by almost all Nations, and is ridiculously outdated and harmful? What is wrong over there? Answer

samsaranmusing-deactivated20140:

Yes, I am an American. The “gun culture” thing is greatly exaggerated by the foreign press. In Europe the aristocracy had guns ostensibly for hunting, a pastime reserved for the wealthy, while guns were kept out of the hands of the poorer classes. We have guns in the U.S. because no rich man has ever dared take them from us.
