The Wikileaks cyber retaliation of the past few days was to do with freedom of speech, freedom of the internet and open-ness in government. You could call it a peaceful protest to encourage, seemingly, a better system of national and international governance based on transparency and integrity.
What happened in London yesterday was the hijacking, once again, of another intended peaceful protest by a group of individuals contemptuous of British societal values. They were determined on using violence and divisive tactics to undermine the British way of life.
One group is trying to bring about change coercively in order to bring about a democratic revolution through exposure of the flaws of the old ways, while the other group is trying to wreak havoc and destruction just for the sake of it. The Wikileaks organisations operate, so far, using careful planning and intelligence, while the activists in London work from a platform of emotion, largely anger, arrogance, selfishness and aggressiveness. You could say both are influenced by the Fourth Ray of Harmony through Conflict, but at very different levels of spiritual evolution.
Both groups are, in their own ways, anarchists in that they are rebels, and they are both concerned with freedom, one in a positive way, the other in a negative way. Questions about freedom (and rebellion) are implicit too in China’s reaction to the awarding of the Nobel Peace prize this year to Liu Xiaobo.
So, we have three very different but related series of events which are prominent simultaneously. Within each of them we see indications of “the bad old days” based on power, whether it is physical or intellectual, and also a promise of what is to come - uncertainty, unrest, exposure of truth and of illusion, the demise of what is deemed unacceptable in the new age of man, an era of tolerance. Most of all there will be the freedom just to be, within the community we have chosen to build together. Choice. It is always about choice.
