#IAmWikiLeaks

The regime relies on our silence, let us be silent no more!

The empire of consumerist regimes is circling its wagons, jettisoning the rhetoric of democracy and openly calling for the assassination of those who defy its power. And now, every one of us on the left faces a decision. If we seize this revolutionary opportunity, chances are we can parlay it into a significant blow against the current world order.

Behind Wikileaks is a powerful tactical insight that was best articulated by Julian Assange:

To radically shift regime behavior we must think clearly and boldly for if we have learned anything, it is that regimes do not want to be changed. We must think beyond those who have gone before us, and discover technological changes that embolden us with ways to act in which our forebears could not. Firstly we must understand what aspect of government or neocorporatist behavior we wish to change or remove. Secondly we must develop a way of thinking about this behavior that is strong enough carry us through the mire of politically distorted language, and into a position of clarity. Finally must use these insights to inspire within us and others a course of ennobling, and effective action. (State and Terrorist Conspiracies)

Already, Wikileaks has made substantial strides in that direction.

In the last few days, we've learned of the perversion of American diplomacy and power on multiple levels. And in the coming days, Wikileaks promises to release cables on Israel that could shine a light on the inhumane occupation of Palestine. And in the near future, they will release documents rumored to be taken from the hard-drive of an executive at a leading American bank. Assange says the documents will be as damaging as the "Enron emails" that shook capitalism in 2001. If Wikileaks had existed while Colin Powell was misleading the UN Security Council, perhaps we could have halted the invasion of Iraq.

This is a rallying call to become a revolutionary whistle blower and join the growing legion who have vowed to reveal the corruption, dirty tricks and systemic injustices that our global system thrives on.

Imagine a world where people everywhere, in every company, in every branch of government start copying incriminating documents and revealing the truth in the name of #IAmWikileaks.

The regime relies on our silence, let us be silent no more!

we live in interesting times.
it's a great time to ask ourselves...
what would I do if I was the Government?

oh yeah, we are the government...supposedly

it is sacredly important to realize and feel that we live in a time of spiritual awakening.

it is equally important to realize and feel that we live in a time of planetary awakening.

our mother earth is screaming for help.

we know the way to planetary healing.

Morning Glory

The momentum is undeniable. My instincts tell me we have more epiphanies ahead, so hold on tight! We're in this together - the axis is definitely shifting.

if Julian Assange is not released to be free,
it will be a clear message to all of us who think we are free and living in a democracy with the freedom of speech and the rule of law

time to pay attention
time to pray intention
time to be free

love, truth, balance

corporate capitalist fascist realm...we see you...and we don't need cables to see you...they just help prove it in our court of law.

corporations are not living creatures, they are man-made.
if corporations have rights in the eyes of the law then earth must have the ultimate rights, because it is living. corporations are not living entities.

Adbusters was created by the corporations to allow us to vent our "consuming" frustrations without actually having to return or stop buying.

Think of Adbusters as puking in order to eat more. Consuming never goes away, but neither did the guilt of consuming until Adbusters gave those feeling most guilty an outlet to vent.

The day we free ourselves of our gluttonous consumption, so do we free ourselves of the shame and guilt continually displayed on this site.

It's all part of one big happy system to make you all happy. One big group hug and a bunch of shoe and magazine sales :).
