Alternatives Management: Vertrauen als Ressource für Unternehmen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Oft werben diejenigen am meisten darum, die unter Vertrauensverlust leiden. Denn tatsachlich sinkt das Vertrauen in die Wirtschaft und das Misstrauen steigt. Das ist das Ergebnis nahezu aller Studien zum Thema Verbrauchervertrauen // &! - Twitter just made it more difficult to hold politicians accountable // Same with the Conservative Party deleting all their speeches and documents after they won majority in election and partnered up with libdems - &! // Auch Geld funktioniert nur dank Vertrauen [...] Der Systemtheoretiker Niklas Luhmann beschrieb Vertrauen daher auch als "Mechanismus zur Reduktion sozialer Komplexität". Ständiges Misstrauen dagegen mache unser Zusammenleben deutlich schwieriger, sagt Martin Schweer. [...] Schnell zeigte sich: Hatte der eine das Geschäft fair und zum gegenseitigen Vorteil abgewickelt, erhöhte der andere in der nächsten Runde seinen Einsatz. // &! - Does honesty matter ...

Chris Hedges - Our Only Hope Will Come Through Rebellion - 29th March 2014 - YouTube
military industrial complex does what it wants and asks and gets what it wants. // Truth is hidden. Decent is criminalised. // things are only to get worse. // protect corporate state and spy on other corporate states and corporate entities. // for-profit military industrial complex // 9/11 opportunist, false flag, to profit from program X to protect our nation // no warrent needed - // the corporate state has no incentive to give up Stasi 2.0 // >> = Totalitarian state // we have totalitarian structures! period. // reform can not come from those who are in the center of power and a implicit of the status quo ... meaning only a revolution through rebellion is the option. defying the law and opting for civil disobedience. moral and physical courage needed.

DECLINE of EMPIRES: The Signs of Decay - YouTube
Chalmers Johnson, author of Blowback, Sorrows of Empire and Nemesis: The Last Days of the American Republic , talks about the similarities in the decline of the Roman and Soviet empires and the signs that the U.S. empire is exhibiting the same symptoms: overextension, corruption and the inability to reform [ in face of global change and internal ideology.] - min 15 + fiscal overstretch that does not serve people (economic multiplier, ie NSA, military bases, personnel, and long-term obligations ie pension and benefits) ... and unable to change bc of ideology married with identity (the American Dream is still alive and this country is fair and meritocratic) as well unable to keep up with global economic competition as a whole (take out Silicon Valley). & unable to smell crony capitalism (no shared economic interest), corruption and bribery when its showing up (ie TTIP, NAFTA and co.) &!

“America Frightens Us”: Europeans are Waking Up. The US is No Longer an Ally of the European Union? | Global Research
According to the law, if it should ever happen that American citizens are brought before the International Criminal Court (ICC) and accused at The Hague, Washington would exercise the preemptive right to invade the country in order to prevent prosecution. Remember that Malaysia’s government had permitted a tribunal in 2011, whose judges in the tradition of British court proceedings condemned both George W. Bush and Tony Blair as war criminals. /// +++

The Coming Race War Won’t Be About Race | TIME
via reddit - || Ferguson is not just about systemic racism — it's about class warfare and how America's poor are held back, says Kareem Abdul-Jabbar [...] According to a 2012 Pew Research Center report, just half of U.S. households are middle-income, a drop of 11 percent since the 1970s; median middle-class income has dropped by 5 percent in the last ten years, total wealth is down 28 percent. Fewer people (just 23 percent) think they will have enough money to retire. Most damning of all: fewer Americans than ever believe in the American Dream mantra that hard work will get them ahead. || + Krawalle nach Tod von Michael Brown: Obama schickt obersten US-Ermittler nach Ferguson - || - << no trust into investigation, into officials, ...

'Monsanto Protection Act' slips silently through US Congress — RT USA
The US House of Representatives quietly passed a last-minute addition to the Agricultural Appropriations Bill for 2013 last week - including a provision protecting genetically modified seeds from litigation in the face of health risks. [...] Previously discovered pathogens in Monsanto’s Roundup Ready corn and soy are suspected of causing infertility in livestock and to impact the health of plants. + >> Anger is growing against President Barack Obama the day after he signed into law a spending bill that included a provision opponents have dubbed the “Monsanto Protection Act.”

Senate report hits Goldman | City A.M.
arl Levin, chairman of the senate permanent subcommittee on investigations, tore into Goldman at a press briefing on his panel’s 639-page report, which is based on a review of tens of millions of documents over two years. Levin accused Goldman of profiting at clients’ expense as the mortgage market crashed in 2007. “In my judgment, Goldman clearly misled their clients and they misled Congress,” he said.
A Goldman Sachs spokesman said: “While we disagree with many of the conclusions of the report, we take seriously the issues explored by the subcommittee.”
The report also criticised Deutsche Bank and credit rating agencies Moody’s and Standard & Poor’s.
“Blame for this mess lies everywhere – from federal regulators who cast a blind eye, Wall Street bankers who let greed run wild, and members of Congress who failed to provide oversight,” said Republican senator and report co-author Tom Coburn.

USA und WikiLeaks: Peinliche Suche nach der richtigen Klage - SPIEGEL ONLINE - Nachrichten - Politik
Espionage Act. Den will Lieberman ausgebaut sehen um Passagen, die es dem US-Justizministerium erleichtern würden, Assange anzuklagen. Er ist gerade beteiligt an gleich zwei Gesetzesvorlagen mit dieser Stoßrichtung.

Und er steht nicht allein damit. Peter King, der designierte neue konservative Vorsitzende des Kongress-Geheimdienstausschusses, legte Ende der Woche die "Securing Human Intelligence and Enforcing Lawful Dissemination Bill" vor - formell H.R.6506, kurz, knackig und sinnfällig aber einfach "Shield" getauft.
Shield ist ein typischer Fall von "Was nicht passt, wird passend gemacht". Die Gesetzesvorlage erweitert die Anti-Spionage-Gesetzgebung um Bestimmungen zum Schutz der Informanten von Militär und Geheimdiensten. Denn das ist einer der stichhaltigsten Vorwürfe gegen Assange und WikiLeaks:
