10 Signs The Global Elite Are Losing Control

Here’s intersting post about how elite is losing their power:

Eric Blair
Activist Post

Karma is coming for the elite in a big way. As the Powers That Be head toward a devastating defeat in their war plans for Syria, signs are emerging that their rule over humanity is rapidly diminishing.

Over the last decade the global elite have been on a mad dash to consolidate power over the world. It’s always been their plan like some evil villain in a comic book, but after 9/11 the plan went into overdrive and then turbo charged during the financial crisis of 2008.

Yet it’s doomed to fail because humans are meant to be guided by their own free will, not controlled like livestock. The more the elite try to control humanity, the more entropy occurs. Entropy, for those who don’t know, is the lack of order or predictability; a gradual decline into disorder.

Although the elite still enjoy a huge wealth advantage over the masses, they are now resigned to behaving like tyrants to maintain control. This, in turn, exposes their dark side which has been cleverly concealed for ages. Not anymore.

People are waking up in droves, at least as fast as the elite can build their full-spectrum prison matrix.  Let them try.  To paraphrase Victor Hugo, “No army can stop an idea whose time has come.”

Here are ten signs that the elite are losing control over the people:

1. Official lies no longer effective: The lies they tell simply don’t work anymore. There was a time when official lies, especially about war and peace, were believed. Because, after all, how evil would it be to lie about such things? Generally people want to believe they are being told the truth when life and death is at stake. The boy who cried wolf has cried one too many times. Even if they told the truth at this point, very few would believe them.

2. No confidence in politics: US politicians have a paltry approval rating. The trust in government is at all-time lows here and around the world. Mainstream polls show only 10% of the public has confidence in Congress. In other words, 90% don’t believe in them to be competent to govern.

Watch this Town Hall exchange below where a man threatens US Senator John McCain with arrest for treason to his face. This would have never happened just a year or two ago:

 

3. No confidence in media: The most recent polls show that 77% of the population no longer trusts corporate TV news. Is it any wonder why the establishment media failed to sell the lies about the alleged Syria chemical event?  With all their monopoly might over the airwaves, they can no longer claim that black is white simply because officialdom says so.

4. Bankers rejected: Hungary recently became the first country to follow Iceland’s lead by shedding international bankers (IMF) and is considering pursuing prosecution of past prime ministers who enslaved the people with debt.

 

Look for this trend to continue even if nations decide to default to break free.

5. Vatican abruptly cleaning up its act: Under the previous Pope, Pope Benedict, scandals erupted from the Vatican ranging from covering up pedophile priests to money laundering and fraud. Benedict, in an unprecedented move, abruptly retired to make way for a seemingly much more likable Pope Francis. Pope Francis by all measures is working furiously to reclaim the church’s peaceful and humble reputation. Whether this is genuine or a PR move, it’s telling that the church was forced into such a drastic turnaround to save itself from losing all credibility.

6. Mutiny among soldiers: Finally. Soldiers, who are outlawed from making political statements, are steadily speaking out against US military adventurism. As Einstein famously said “The pioneers of a warless world are the young men (and women) who refuse military service.”

7. Militarized police state: One of the darkest signs that the elite are losing their grip on power is the construction of the militarized police state specifically trained to combat domestic civil unrest. Local cops with tanks and other combat gear are working with Feds at Fusion centers, active Army units are on American soil for the first time in history, the NSA spy grid is being used by the IRS and DEA, and the elimination of due process for Americans under the NDAA are just some of the tyrannical moves made to secure the elite criminals from public backlash. They’re clearly scared, and they should be given what they’ve done to the American people and the Constitution.

 

8. Serious secession movements everywhere: A state seceding from a larger political entity used to be an ultra-fringe concept, until now. In America, secession movements are winning over the public in parts of Colorado and California. In Europe, serious secession movements are happening in Spain and Scotland, as well as several EU nations flirting with the idea of dropping out of the euro. Decentralization = Entropy!

9. GMO food being rejected everywhere: Control the food and you control the people. True in theory, but much more difficult in practice. GMO leaders like Monsanto are being exposed. All of their economic and political strength cannot defeat the spread of knowledge about the dangers of pesticide-soaked Frankenfoods. GMO fields are being burned in protest in America and around the world, informed nations continue to reject their products, and labeling laws are gaining traction.

10. Cannabis liberation: Many reading this will think marijuana legalization is a superficial development. However, it is a major signpost that the elite’s grip is fading.  Enormous resources have been spent to keep cannabis illegal. Cannabis has been a powerful medicine for physical, mental, and spiritual health throughout the ages. This single plant represents a huge threat to the power structures and their industries, hence its seemingly senseless illegality. The approaching global reversal of the tyrannical policy of prohibition is the first of many concessions to come.

Yuri Bezmenov: KGB Psychological Warfare and Subversion Strategy

Some info about a man who strangely predicted nowadays America in the 1980’s… WAKE UP!

Yuri Alexandrovich Bezmenov (Russian: Юрий Безменов, also known as Tomas David Schuman; 1939 – 1993[1]) was a journalist for RIA Novosti and a former PGUKGBinformant from the Soviet Union who defected to Canada.

After being assigned to a station in India, Bezmenov eventually grew to love the people and the culture of India, but at the same time, he began to resent the KGB-sanctioned oppression of intellectuals who dissented from Moscow’s policies. He decided to defect to the West. Bezmenov is best remembered for his pro-American, anticommunist lectures and books from the 1980s.

Early life

Bezmenov was born in 1939 in a suburb of Moscow to a high ranking Soviet Army officer. He was educated in an elite school inside the Soviet Union and became an expert in Indian culture and Indian languages.

At 17, Bezmenov entered the Institute of Oriental Languages, a part of Moscow State University, which was under the direct control of the KGB and the Communist Central Committee. In addition to languages, Bezmenov studied history, literature, and music. During his second year, Bezmenov sought to look like a person from India; his teachers encouraged this because graduates of the school were employed as diplomats, foreign journalists, or spies.

As a Soviet student, he was also required to take compulsory military training in which he taught how to play “strategic war games” using the maps of foreign countries, as well as how to interrogate prisoners of war.

Soviet life

After graduating in 1963, Bezmenov spent two years in India working as a translator and public relations officer with the Soviet economical aid group Soviet Refineries Constructions, which built refinery complexes.

In 1965, Bezmenov was recalled to Moscow and began to work for RIA Novosti as an apprentice for their classified department of “Political Publications” (GRPP). He soon discovered that about three quarters of Novosti’s staffers were actually KGB officers, with the remainder being “co-optees” or KGB freelance writers and informers like himself. However, Bezmenov did no real freelance writing; rather, he edited and planted propaganda materials in foreign media and accompanied delegations of Novosti’s guests from foreign countries on tours of the Soviet Union or to international conferences held in the Soviet Union.

After several months, Bezmenov was forced to be an informer[citation needed] while still maintaining his position as a Novosti journalist. He then used his journalistic duties to help gather information and to spread disinformation to foreign countries for the purposes of Soviet propaganda and subversion.

Rapid promotion followed, and Bezmenov was once again assigned to Bila in 1969, this time as a Soviet press-officer and a public relations agent for the KGB. He continued Novosti’s propaganda effects in New Delhi, working out of the Soviet embassy. Bezmenov was directed to slowly but surely establish the Soviet sphere of influence in India. In the same year, a secret directive of the Central Committee opened a new secret department in all embassies of the Soviet Union around the world, titled the “Research and Counter-Propaganda Group.” Bezmenov became a deputy chief of that department, which gathered intelligence from sources like Indian informers and agents, regarding most every influential or politically significant citizen of India.

Those who favored the Soviets’ expansionist policy into India were promoted to higher positions of power, affluence, and prestige through various KGB/Novosti operations.[further explanation needed] Those who refused to cooperate with Soviet plans were the target of character assassination in the media and press.

Bezmenov stated that he was also instructed not to waste time with idealistic leftists, as these would become disillusioned, bitter, and adversarial when they realized the true nature of Soviet Communism. To his surprise, he discovered that many such were listed for execution once the Soviets achieved control. Instead, Bezmenov was encouraged to recruit the persons in large circulation, established conservative media, rich filmmakers, intellectuals in academic circles, and cynical, ego-centric people who lacked moral principles.

During that period, increasingly saw the Soviet system as insidious and ruthless, Bezmenov began careful planning to defect.[2][3]

Defection to the West

In February 1970, Bezmenov clothed himself in hippie attire, replete with a beard and wig, and joined a tour group; by this means, he escaped to Athens, Greece. After contacting the American embassy and undergoing extensive interviews with United States intelligence, Bezmenov was granted asylum in Canada.

In an interview with G. Edward Griffin, he detailed how Soviet help for inciting anger and uprising in East Pakistan (now Bangladesh) was the final straw in his personal decision to defect to the West. In the interview, Yuri details how USSR consulates in India were used to smuggle weapons and propaganda material to East Pakistan in a largely Soviet effort to break up the state of Pakistan, then a staunch Western and US ally.[1]

After studying political science at the University of Toronto for two years, Bezmenov was hired by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in 1972, broadcasting to the Soviet Union as part of the CBC’s International Service. In 1976, the KGB compelled his departure from that position, and Bezmenov began free-lance journalism. He later became a consultant for Almanac Panorama of the World Information Network.[3]

Pro-American lecturer, writer, advocate

In 1984, he gave an interview to G. Edward Griffin, who at that time was a member of the John Birch Society, an anticommunist group. In the interview, Bezmenov explained the methods used by the KGB for the gradual subversion of the political system of the United States.[4]

Under the pen-name Tomas D. Schuman, Bezmenov authored the book Love Letter to America. The author’s biography of the book states “Like a true-life Winston Smith, from George Orwell‘s 1984.[2]

Tomas D. Schuman was associated with the World Information Network (WIN) of Westlake Village, California.

In 1983, at a lecture in Los Angeles, Bezmenov expressed the opinion that he “wouldn’t be surprised” if the Soviet Union had shot down Korean Air Lines Flight 007 in order to kill Larry McDonald, a member of the United States House of Representatives.[5]

Something to think about…

For Those Who Are Interested In Truth

I have always been interested in the Truth. Since I was a little, you could see me trying to watch behind the puppet show just to see who is actually pulling the strings. So here is something related to that:

In a time of universal deceit –
telling the truth is a revolutionary act.
George Orwell

Living in fairytale land is easy.

The art of denial is ruling human consciousness and that is understandable for those who do not want a clear idea of the future. Most people are actually terrible at foreseeing the future allowing it to come up from behind. We have our own little realities to deal with as well as the collective reality of our culture and civilization, which crosses national boundaries after decades of globalization.

The future is hurling itself at us like a high speed express train.

The truth of the future is a combination of outside factors like Nature, which are mostly out of our control. Add to that our own skills of perception and creativity leading to our own personal life manifestation.

And then there is the collective, which is dominated by the rich and powerful and what they are willing into existence for themselves at the expense of everyone else.

What seems to spook people now is the possibility
that everybody in charge of everything is a
fraud or a crook. Legitimacy has left the system.
James Howard Kuntsler

The first and most basic answer to the world’s problems is the truth. Not subjective relative truth but truth itself.

All solutions to all problems lie in the truth of the problem. In the truth is the solution. Without the truth we are lost, swimming in a sea of contradictions and arguments. Without truth we have untruths, lies, deception, and a sea of pain.

The absolute nature of truth is distasteful to those who embrace the subjective nature of perception. For most objectivity actually ceases to exist. Objective truths exist independent of our subjective natures and our opinions and beliefs about things.

We can believe whatever we want and as passionately as we please but believing something is so does not necessarily make it so, though it is true that lies become truth to people who believe in the absolute truth of their beliefs.

It is one thing to show a man that he is in an error,
and another to put him in possession of truth.
John Locke

If you are a person of truth and you hear the truth it kind of excites you.

With everyone else it disturbs them plenty because they are self-righteously set in their ways, stubborn, inflexible, selfish, and unwilling to change. Such people want to get rid of anyone who proclaims the truth because any such truth becomes like a thorn in their side, a thorn to be pulled and discarded with distaste.

The truth, if we are not living it, is almost unbearable to hear.

All the world’s religions are in conflict with the collective for by their very nature they tend to create separations not one whole sense of humanity.

Krishnamurti once said,

“To love anything beautiful in a country is normal and natural, but when that love is used by exploiters in their own interest it is called nationalism.

Nationalism is fanned into imperialism, and then the stronger people divide and exploit the weaker, with the Bible in one hand and a bayonet in the other. The world is dominated by the spirit of cunning, ruthless exploitation, from which war must ensue.

This spirit of nationalism is the greatest stupidity.”

The Future Truth is Here Already

The spirit of war on earth at this time is the most basic evil on our planet.

In today’s world with nuclear weapons almost everywhere we are playing Russian roulette in the Middle East especially in Syria where it seems WWIII has already started with foreign powers increasingly being drawn in.

“Deleveraging Everywhere,” said Stifel Nicolaus.

“No one knows how it will end but we do know this; it all comes at once,” says Peter Kenny, chief market strategist at Knight Capital.

If the Federal Reserve does not intervene soon and allows the bond bubble, which it has deliberately created, to burst, we are going to see unprecedented carnage in the world.

Last week, the yield on 5 year U.S. Treasuries rose by an astounding 37 percent. 

That was the largest increase in 50 years and if this keeps up it will be taps for the world economy and for most people who depend on the system for their bearings.

“Global financial markets are now in a very perilous state, and there is a much higher than normal chance of a crash.

Bernanke’s recent statement revealed just how large a role speculation had played in the prices of nearly everything, and now there is a mad dash for cash taking place all over the world. The early stage of any liquidity crisis is a mad dash for cash, especially by all of the leveraged speculators.

Anything that can be sold is sold. As I scan the various markets, all I can find is selling.

Stocks, commodities, and equities are all being shed at a rapid pace, and that’s the first clue that we are not experiencing sector rotation or other artful portfolio-dodging designed to move out of one asset class into another (say, from equities into bonds).

The increasing number of flashing indicators warning that a 2008-style – but worse – sell-off is arriving. We say “worse” because this time it looks like it will be accompanied by a vicious cycle of rising interest rates.

Plus, governments and central banks have used up all of their major options already. There are no more white knights to hope for,” writes Chris Martenson.

John Rubino writes,

“They’ve been playing with fire for such a long time, trying to balance incompatible goals of low interest rates, stable currencies and accelerating growth, that for a while they almost believed that they would get away with it, that the laws of economics could be bent to their will forever.

Now they see that this was hubris, that their sense of control was just an illusion bought with credit on a scale so large that the numbers had become meaningless.”

The Economic Collapse Blog writes,

“Do you want to know the primary reason why rapidly rising interest rates could take down the entire global financial system?

Most people might think that it would be because the U.S. government would have to pay much more interest on the national debt. And yes, if the average rate of interest on U.S. government debt rose to just 6 percent (and it has actually been much higher in the past), the federal government would be paying out about a trillion dollars a year just in interest on the national debt.

But that isn’t it. Nor does the primary reason have to do with the fact that rapidly rising interest rates would impose massive losses on bond investors.

At this point, it is being projected that if U.S. bond yields rise by an average of 3 percentage points, it will cause investors to lose a trillion dollars. Yes, that is a 1 with 12 zeroes after it ($1,000,000,000,000). But that is not the number one danger posed by rapidly rising interest rates either.

Rather, the number one reason why rapidly rising interest rates could cause the entire global financial system to crash is because there are more than 441 TRILLION dollars’ worth of interest rate derivatives sitting out there.

This number comes directly from the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) – the central bank of central banks. In other words, more than $441,000,000,000,000 has been bet on the movement of interest rates.”

Preparation might appear to be a waste of time at this point but lack of preparation could be more costly.

It’s ridiculous to think that our political leaders will guide the world economies through the upcoming hard times. What they will do is aggravate the hard times ahead by following policies that benefit the political and financial elite at the expense of the middle class and the poorer classes.

When the going gets rough it is love not governments that will get us through.

In the case of our current reality governments are not even going to be able to take care of themselves though they will try till the bitter end. The survival instinct runs deep in the psychology of governments even though they operate with suicidal objectives and sadist tendencies.

Sounds crazy because it is!

I think control is going to slip through everyone’s hands and for at least a time anarchy will rule or the army will rule. Historians will love what is coming for they will be able to write about it endlessly.

Just try to image all the bank cash machines in the world stopping and start imagining from there. Like the science fiction movie ‘The Day the Earth Stood Still’ things could grind to a halt quite quickly.

We are vulnerable as the present system/definition of money collapses taking away huge portions of the world’s real economy with it.

Couple of very important documents! (must read)

Now I just want to inform you few of very important documents, which you should all read. The website which has these document is http://www.stopthecrime.net/ . There is a lot of information on that site, but these few documents are the most important ones. These documents relate to the agenda how the “world bankers”, “The powers that be“, “Elite”, “Illuminati” or whatever you want to call them is trying to destroy the World and lead us to the New World Order (NWO). First one is called “NASA – Future Strategic Issues / Future Warfare (circa 2025)“. This document tells you how “They” have the future for us and it doesn’t look good I promise you that. Here’s a flier about the document (click to enlarge):

Here is the YouTube video where Deborah Tavares explains the document:

 

Then we have another document on that same site called “Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars“. This document tells you how “They” are using silent weapons against us and our health:

Conspiracy theories are nothing new to history. Plots to “kill Caesar” and overthrow Rome abounded, for instance. however, it is s eldom that concrete clues to such plots come to light, and are generally known.
Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars, An Introduction Programming Manual was uncovered quite by accident on July 7, 1986 when an employee of Boeing Aircraft Co. purchased a surplus IBM copier for scrap parts at a sale, and discovered inside details of a plan, hatched in the embryonic days of the “Cold War” which called for control of the masses through manipulation of industry, peoples’ pastimes, education and political leanings. It called for a quiet revolution, putting brother against brother, and diverting the public’s attention from what is really going on.
The document you are about to read is real. It is reprinted in its virgin form, with diagrams, as a touch of reality.
Here is couple of videos related to this document:


 

Then we have a very important document called “The Matrix Deciphered“. This document tells you how your mind is attacked every day and you don’t even know it:

The Matrix Deciphered
Bio of Author
“True nobility is
exempt from fear”.

King Henry the Sixth, Part II (Act IV, Scene I).
Call me The Saint. I am the all American – prep school, Harvard College graduating with honors in computer science and a minor in premedical studies, and advanced degrees from Harvard and Dartmouth in business and science. My famous ancestors are President Lincoln, King Duncan of Scotland, and Governor William Bradford, the first governor of Massachusetts.

My research interests have been neural networks, virtual reality, and EEG controlled robotics. Before graduate school I worked for the Department of Defense, Navy, NATO, and various intelligence agencies‟ computer science projects. I have done business consulting and computer consulting for the largest companies in the world. I have been a professor, inventor, artist, and writer. I am one of the last Renaissance men.

My projects have included algorithms for Echelon and CIA natural language parsing and classification of document content, IRS formula for red flagging audits, writing the artificial intelligence code to automate tracking of the Soviet Nuclear Submarine Fleet and all water vessels, work integrating HAARP with SIGINT SIGCOM and SPAWAR. I have worked on projects for the Justice Department connecting local, state, and federal databases for the tracking of terrorists. I developed a system for the FBI to track license plates past toll booths and other locations. I worked on the soldier 2000 program to create body networks for reading vital signs and other information. A system I worked on called Snyper is operational in Iraq which triangulates on intercity conflict gun shots. I have been to a couple secret bases in the so called free world. I have developed telemedicine robotic surgery and virtual reality applications for the Army. For DARPA, I have worked on satellite computer vision target tracking applications and tank simulation as well as integration of the land, sea, and air surveillance systems like SOSSUS, towed arrays, and others.

Projects that I have worked on outside of government contracts include my thesis on computer generated holography, a project making paralyzed people walk again using choreographed stimulated muscles movements, face recognition, voice identification and recognition, finger print recognition, and neural network robotic controller. My research interests moved to enhanced reality heads up displays and wearable computing systems. My current research involves finding a cure for the mind control directed energy weapons fiasco. The integrated global surveillance grid is actually part of the holy grail of weapons and human control systems.

My apologies to the human race for my contribution to tyranny. I was tricked into thinking it would not be misused by corrupt government especially in my beloved country. I was wrong. The Joint Non – Lethal Weapons Directorate has Skip Green on the governing board. One of my old colleagues at a technology think tank in Cambridge partly in charge of the radio frequency weapons testing for neurological disruption now torturing and killing people worldwide. Several other US Navy and UK Navy scientists have been knocked – off and that is why I have come forward. I know my time may be near. I am currently a professor in computer science and business, helping to educate the public on government corruption, greed, and stupidity. Like my ancestor Lincoln, I am fighting against mental slavery in a new Civil War engineered by the same useless elements in over 80 government agencies who have tested radiological, drug, and viral weapons on unsuspecting Americans for over 45 years.

I have great pride in the fundamental and constitutional values of America and mean no disrespect by my blasting the incompetence, apathy, and stupidity of those involved in the conspiracy of involuntary biological, chemical, and psychotronic human effects testing. There are so many brave men and women serving in the armed forces who fight and protect us for the American values they believe in. But because of the silos of information called compartmentalization in the security agencies and the lack of accountability and oversight of black operations and some top secret projects, diabolical elements become rogue or worse destroying the very country they are tasked with protecting turning it into a hypocracy rather than a democracy.

My goal is to awaken Americans to the continued horrific acts of military and CIA weapons testers in this country and the other branches of government‟s inability to stop them and hold them accountable. All I ask from the reader is to listen to testimony and validate facts presented here and come to their own conclusion. Then fight to win back America from this silent overthrow. This has been my project for about two years, investigating government corruption, incompetence, and cover – up upon which I accidentally stumbled one day while looking at a reverse MRI scheme to inject electromagnetic signals into the brain for virtual reality applications.

I have interviewed over two hundred people and worked on the highest level of military projects for the U.S., NATO, and U.K. and have given videotaped testimony to senators and representatives on this topic resulting in lip service since they have no real power to enforce. Two high level FBI agents and a couple CIA agents have come forward to validate the existence of an MKULTRA – like project that continues to grab random people for mind control experimentation. Two of these have since become part of the program and endure daily psychotronic tortures. All the torture can be done using directed energy psychotronic weapons with the so called continental ballistic missile surveillance defense grids.

I  apologize to the human race for any contribution to these 4th generation weapons that I may have worked on that are more horrific than the nuclear bomb and whose cover-up is more pervasive than the Manhattan Project. And because of the horrific acts of violence being committed on as many as two thousand Americans as far as my research has uncovered and many others in other countries, I understand the extreme risk to my own welfare that publishing this material will have. But freedom is so important to me that I know full hear tedly that the human race must have an open discussion on these weapons to decide their own fate before the point of decision is gone, that I am willing to risk divulging so called national secrets. All I offer you is the truth. All information presented in this book was received through legitimate channels such as the Freedom of Information Act, military documents, victim testimony, and turned agents. I still hold valid the oath I took to keep secret the details of the projects that I worked on under DoD budgets. The majority of the proceeds of this book will go towards helping the psychotronic experiment survivors and surviving families of those that have perished. When the government fails, business and the citizens must look out for each other.

“Remember. All I offer you is the truth.”

Morpheus, The Matrix

So I think that these documents or books are good to start and of course “The Illuminati Formula Used to Create an Undetectable Total Mind Controlled Slave by Cisco Wheeler and Fritz Springmeier” relates to these topics also.

Truth will ultimately prevail where there is pains taken to bring it to light.

Silenced speakers Part V, Aaron Swartz

Last person in the series “Silenced speakers” is not so much a speaker, but I think that because his effort to blogging and RSS it is kind of respect to his legacy. And I’m talking about a legacy considering free information to us all. The person in scope is of course internet guru and Reddit founder Aaron Swartz:

Aaron Hillel Swartz (November 8, 1986 – January 11, 2013) was an American computer programmer, writer, political organizer and Internet activist.

Swartz was involved in the development of the web feed format RSS,the organization Creative Commons,the website framework web.pyand the social news site Reddit, in which he was an equal partner after its merger with his Infogami company.Swartz also focused on sociology, civic awareness and activism.In 2010, he became a research fellow at Harvard University’s Edmond J. Safra Research Lab on Institutional Corruption, directed by Lawrence Lessig.He founded the online group Demand Progress, known for its campaign against the Stop Online Piracy Act, and later worked with the activist groups Rootstrikers and Avaaz. He was also a contributing editor to The Baffler.

On January 6, 2011, Swartz was arrested by MIT police on state breaking-and-entering charges, in connection with the systematic downloading of academic journal articles from JSTOR.Federal prosecutors eventually charged him with two counts of wire fraud and 11 violations of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act,charges carrying a cumulative maximum penalty of $1 million in fines plus 35 years in prison, asset forfeiture, restitution and supervised release.

On January 11, 2013, two years after his initial arrest, Swartz was found dead in his Crown Heights, Brooklyn apartment, where he had hanged himself.

Why I want to bring this up is because the future of Internet cannot be censorship and big brother kind of dystopia. Free information belongs to all people and agreements like ACTA or SOPA or CISPA are destroying this free information and privacy.

Here is a report from Aaron’s funeral, where reporter quotes Aaron’s father that government killed his son:

 

 

Do you really think that this man who talks so passionately committed a suicide? I think that Aaron’s take against big corporations was too much for them and he paid it with his life:

 

Here is another comment about Aaron’s and other activist deaths on thetruthergirls:

 

I personally don’t think that Aaron Swartz committed a suicide. I think he was murdered, because he had so much information and abilities to spread it. So when you go against big corporations it is possible that you end six feet under. I think that Aaron was a great activist and I just wanted to bring his story to the public and remember, the Truth will always win. R.I.P. Aaron Hillel Swartz.
