The Tor Project! The organization “The Tor Project” is an American charitable foundation founded by independent software and hardware specialists and hackers, who fighting for a free and independent Internet, who developing the so-called "Tor Browser" and have built up the so-called "Tor Network" and supervise this technically as well as organizationally. The Tor network is a privately funded, independent, parallel Internet of interlinked servers scattered around the world and that often referred to as the "Darknet". The Tor Browser can be downloaded and used for any operating system for free. It does not collect any data and is individually configurable to all security needs. Only via the Tor browser one get into the Tor network, in which one then anonymously, without which one can be identified and tracked, in the regular Internet, also called "Clearnet", as well as in the Darknet can surf. The anonymity is thereby created by the IP address is split and re-routed several times over this independent server infrastructure. And that's exactly what makes it impossible to trace and track the user, which guarantees anonymity. No other technology can establish and guarantee this anonymity in the Internet, not even the encryption and browser protection programs offered by the Internet security companies. Because for nowadays only a single cryptography and phantomization of the IP address is no longer sufficient. The same principle plus cryptography also applies to the e-mail traffic and the communication of the e-mail and communication programs which used in the Tor network. More about the Tor project and how the anonymization works exactly, you will find here!  >> In view of the increasing digital total surveillance by the states and business enterprises, the importance and absolute necessity of the Tor network becomes immediately apparent. Because actually, in the most states today, system and regime critics, opposition figures, investigative journalists and whistleblowers can only solely via the Tor network protected and thus secure communicate and share information before detection, prosecution and detention by the state authorities. Because of that, in some states, the use of the Tor network is now even punishable, such as i.a. in China and Morocco. And so that this absolutely necessary option can be remain, the Tor network must be permanently maintained, technically supervised and further developed as well as extended. And for that it basically needs any support. How you can help!  >> To donate something!  >>

Cancellation of illegitimate debts! In lending by the World Bank and the IMF, borrower countries are forced to introduce and implement predetermined so-called structural adjustment programs. These programs require full opening of their markets for the free world trade and are deliberately designed to do so, that they destroy the national, regional and local economic structures and thus the national value creation processes in the long term. Because they only serve the economic interests as well as the global market and power control of the ("western") multinational companies and their investors. The countries will be unilaterally deliberately deprived of their financial, economic, structural and natural resources through these programs. And to be able to implement these structural adjustment programs at all and be able to cushion the disastrous consequences for the social sector and the communities that are inevitably associated with them and resultung to be able to repay these loans, then these national states are forced to borrow more, bur which they would not have to absorb without these programs and, above all, would not need. These additional debts are also termed to as so-called illegitimate debts. Information on identification, auditing and cancellation of illegitimate debts can be found  HERE!  >> Ecuador is so far the only state that has identified its illegitimate debt through a public audit and then also canceled or democratically legitimized the repayment has refused. These illegitimate debts accounted for 80% of the total debt burden! The creditors could, of course, take legal action against this cancellation and would definitely have won. But they did not, because otherwise this entire debt practice would have been shown in an official forum to the general public and that was of course to avoid in any case. And since 2015/2016, due to the massive pressure of the population, in Puerto Rico an auditing and cancellation of the illegitimate debt is being worked on. This policy of debt trap is now practiced by China, and in addition in an imperialist and colonialist way. Two examples: The so-called "New Silk Road," China's major infrastructure-prestige project, is not being financed by China itself, but by the states through which the New Silk Road leads, in fact through short-term loans in billions, which are lended by China. It is superfluous to mention that China, of course, with enormous political pressure has actually forced the states concerned to agree to the construction of this Silk Road. And these loans are i.a. then linked to the conditions that in the case of non-back-pay, e.g. to transfer these infrastructures together with surrounding territory or even mineral resources into the possession of China. Often be right from the start, natural resources or large agricultural areas are contractually agreed as credit consideration. And of course, political allegiances are demanded here as well. In practice, this then sees e.g. like this: At the urging of the China, Sri Lanka has built a state-of-the-art overseas port on its east cost, a point of global strategic importance from the Chinese point of view, financed 100% with Chinese loans. It is also unnecessary to mention that here, of course, only Chinese companies benefited almost exclusively from the construction measures. However, since this port is located in a very weak economic region, this port can not generate the necessary profits in order to repay the loan installments in time. This is where the terms and conditions of the credit agreement come into effect: Sri Lanka had to lease the port and its surrounding territory to China for 99 years (keyword: Hong Kong / Great Britain), for which they were then repaid $ 1 billion, but still $ 4 billion debt left  -  a bomb business!  - and then can only be repaid on the assumption of new debt in a timely manner. This credit policy has now led to countries adjacent to China, such as Mongolia or Vietnam, but meanwhile more and more African countries have to use up to more than a third of their total gross domestic product for debt repayment to China. This Chinese imperialism or colonialism can be described as follows: First, the (generous and selfless) offer to help other countries with necessary investments, then the money comes via short-term loans, then the army comes in these new territories with new bases, such as in East Africa, and then the Chinese people themselves with their then dominant culture. It turns out so, that China is now really practicing anything but as a selflessness or basically to strive for a win-win situation, as it is so often spread by the "useful idiots" as a narrative, but ultimately also only the enforcement of their own needs and interests and, above all, their own system operates. ( "Useful idiots" is an official usage of Chinese politics. This term was invented more than 5000 years ago and describes the people who enthusiastically represent China's interests abroad, and above all, because of their inner structuring, those with full intentions of misleading narrative full of naivety actually believe themselves and then spread. Because of this 5000 years of experience, the Chinese have a very fine sensorium to discover and recognize such naive characters. These are then promoted, used and instrumentalized in the corresponding sense, without it being these simpletons even becoming aware of this as such. But if these "useful idiots" are recognized as such, whichever happens sooner or later, they will immediately be dropped by China again.)
The fairy tale of the change of consciousness  -  The Climate Change (A still highly topical article from July 2015 with an addition to the World Climate Agreement (COP21) of December 2015  -  by Martin Besecke.) In the meantime, there are increasing signs that the politicians are now, in fact and in earnest, seeking to reach out and conclude comprehensive climate-friendly goals and measures at the international level. Unfortunately, these are far from sufficient, and therefore the so-called climate change and its disastrous consequences continue to be a global fact and thus an existential threatening topic and problem. Interestingly, this political change and will is not due to awareness raising or pressure from the streets or from environmental and activist organizations, who unwittingly claim these developments as their sole success, but mainly from economic contexts. Because the underlying truth is that the banks and especially the insurance companies are slowly starting to invest decreasingly in carbon-rich energies and industries. Because the potential costs and losses caused by the consequential damage and the associated negative economic impact are becoming in the meantime too high for the financial elite. Moreover, is the in future only possible, difficult to access and technically very demanding development and production of the last resources, too risky and too expensive. At the same time, the profit margins, which in principle can only be achieved from fossil fuels, no longer comply with the expectations of the investors, so that new sources of money should be sought and developed. And because of these contexts and because just no change in consciousness has been completed, are the desired goals then just not enough, but still follow only pure economic interests and the ideas of the finance economy, which is exclusively interested only in the expansion of money and power! And the politics jumps on this moving train or bends out of self-interest and power conservation in this case even with pleasure these new interests of the money power, because it can sell these goals unjustifiably as an own great and positive idea and enforcement success and also does, in order for the people to be able to suggest or fool their own legitimacy and something like a capacity for action as well as to celebrate! And if the previously discussed climate protection goals can actually be decided on and adopted at the international political level, but then will have to pay for the necessary restructuring and the multi-billion investments, due to the actual power relations between politics and finance or because of the personal interaction of politics and finance, ultimately mainly the taxpayers and consumers!   -   A bomb mega business!!! In spite of these half-hearted goals, the societies and the people will with high probability be satisfied with these half-hearted ones and in principle continue as before. But this "well at least-better than nothing-attitude" is due to the existential nature of this topic not sufficient, wrong and especially in the existential sense extremely fatal, because such an attitude basically and always backfires. Because in 2014, the value of global average warming was 0,85 °C, and we can see all over the world the disastrous consequences of only this warming with the melting of glaciers and polar ice caps, the acidification of the oceans including the coral extinction, rising sea levels, the increasing extinction of animal and plant species, increasing extreme weather conditions such as with long-lasting periods of drought or heavy rain as well as permanent regional climatic and biotope changes. Even if this value could be kept at 0,85 °C, but would still be e.g. the polar ice caps continue to melt, with all the catastrophic consequences that come with it. (Addition: The global average warming in 2017 was already 1,2 °C!) How will the world look like when it is warmed by 2 °C, the desired goal of limiting global warming until the year 2100? Or even at only 1,5 °C? Incidentally, a goal to achieve that at all, in the meantime, in principle, is considered by all experts to be completely unrealistic. And just this 2 °C discussion has already led to a broad awareness that at this value, in principle, everything would still remain in the so-called worry-free area.   -   What an existential error! And even if the announced activities would then actually be implemented and that also as soon as possible and not first as e.g. in China from 2030 onwards, nevertheless, according to the current state of knowledge, this would still mean a global warming of at least 2,7 °C - 3 °C, some even speak of a warming to 5 °C - 6 °C. It does not take a lot of imagination what this value should have for global effects. In addition, there is another factor that is not really taken into account in the previous public debate: According to the current state of research, the so-called heat-trapping gases need around 30 years, until they have arrived in the atmospheric layers, in which unfolds their climate damaging effect. If that were ultimately to prove so, that would mean that most of the emissions that are harmful to the climate have not yet reached the atmosphere, that is, a peak is not reached yet. Or, to put it more clearly, that there will definitely be a much higher level of warming than the current level of 0,85 °C and that this can not be prevented, even if all emissions were stopped immediately. Likewise, the scientific evidence is increasing that climate change does not seem to be a linear development, but galloping progresses and that then with it all previous predictions and climate protectionplans and goals would be unrealistic. But in the light of the current overall systemic dovetailing of the energy issue on growth, trade, stock market, consumption, mobility, jobs, tax revenues, profit, financial (investment, banking, insurance), politics (democracy, community, social benefits) and geopolitical power relations, should be at the so-called "climate agreement", which is to be agreed in Paris in December 2015, extensive tricked and haggled, so that ultimately the result will not require a mandatory binding rapid and radical reconstruction. In summary, this means we are definitely heading for climate change whose global environmental, overall systemic and societal impacts will be catastrophic. Addition: Unfortunately, these statements seem to be completely approved, as the so-called UN World Climate Agreement of Paris 2015 (COP 21) clearly shows!
