… The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.

What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. …

Going to jail just to get a laugh?

RNW, 21 May 2012

 (Photo: Cartoon Movement)

Politics, sex and religion: the key ingredients of satire, jokes and cartoons around the world. But beware; you have to watch what you say. Woe unto anyone who transgresses the unwritten rules.

Political leaders in particular, blessed as they often are with rather large egos, don’t usually like to be the butt of a joke. In Africa, having power seems to be a sacred right, even though personality cults are gradually disappearing, says cartoonist Damien Glez from Burkina Faso. It is still difficult for him to make cartoons of Gnassingbé Eyadéma, even though he is no longer president of Togo. “Although that has nothing to do with the sense of humour of the Togolese themselves.”

Politically correct in the Netherlands

Are there limits when it comes to making jokes? Are there jokes that should not be told? Politics is still a controversial topic, just like ethnicity and sex.

In the Netherlands, the taboo on politically sensitive subjects is receding a little. After the 9-11 attacks in 2001, the murder of Dutch politician Pim Fortuyn less than a year later and of the Islam-critic and filmmaker Theo van Gogh in 2004, comedians openly admitted that they watched their words.

Jokes about Islam and ethnic backgrounds are no longer acceptable. Nowadays, angry audience members seeking redress are by no means the exception to the rule. Newspapers and online columnists are getting used to receiving irate reactions. “We realise more than ever what words do,” says editor Melle van den Berg of Dutch satirical online magazine De Speld. Although there are fewer aggressive reactions than there used to be: “Back then, comedians and columnists censored themselves.”

Joking in Chinese

It’s better not to make political jokes openly in a country like China. You might just get away with a bit of light parody – where the name of a politician is never actually mentioned. But it’s unthinkable for comedians to make political leaders look ridiculous like they do in the West. You can criticise everyday matters or huge wrongs, but only if everyone is talking about it. However, nobody on a comedy circuit would contemplate mentioning Chinese politician Bo Xilai’s corruption scandal.

Comedian Zhou Libo from Shanghai gets away with voicing criticism, partly because he speaks in a local language. Most Chinese simply don’t understand his jokes. Nevertheless, he is becoming better known as a result of his YouTube films.

Kenyan virgins

“It helps if you know your audience,” says Kenyan cartoonist Gado. In Kenya, his homosexuality in particular and sexuality in general are sensitive issues, as is religion. “Sometimes you push limits to remove taboos. The cultural and traditional limits set themselves. But if I know my audience, I know what I can and cannot say.”

In 2005, long before the Danish “Muhammad” cartoons, he drew a cartoon of a female suicide terrorist. She asks a sheikh how many virgins she gets. Gado was inundated with complains and had to apologise. “I never expected that. I just wondered what a woman would get if a man got so many virgins.”

Joking with purpose

Mr van den Berg explains there is a difference between gratuitous humour and humour that pushes boundaries. “Humour that is out to shock people is not my style. I prefer subtlety, but I do push the limits. And if the readers allow me, I go a little further the next time.” He’d rather not talk about the ‘limits of a joke’. The art is to push the envelope.

“We reject many ideas,” says Mr van den Berg referring to all the columns and articles sent to the website on Islam and minorities every day. “A story has to expose something that is going on in a society. It’s no use saying something hurtful for the sake of it.”
