California Senate Committee Passes Bill To Shut Down NSA - Truth And Action

California Senate Committee Passes Bill To Shut Down NSA - Truth And Action | Archetype in Action | Scoop.it
In a victory for liberty and freedom, a bipartisan bill passed the California state Senate committee Tuesday by a 5-0 vote that would turn off the water and power to the NSA facility in CA.

The bill is called the Fourth Amendment Protection Act, Senate Bill 828 (SB828) and it would ban the state from providing any kind of material support or resources to any federal agency engaged in the “illegal and unconstitutional collection of electronic data or metadata, without consent, of any person not based on a warrant that particularly describes the person, place, and thing to be searched or seized.”

The bill is sponsored by Sen. Ted Lieu (D-Torrance) and Sen. Joel Anderson (R-San Diego) and will set a precedent for other states to follow suit.

The bill will be before the Senate floor soon, we will keep you updated.

Let's hope more state follow through on this if the NSA continues to act more like a KGB.

Persephone: Finding Myself in Her Story

Persephone: Finding Myself in Her Story | Archetype in Action | Scoop.it
We’ve all been seized by helplessness and despair. For some, there is no escape. I think of those who live in war zones or with severe mental illness. It think of those who live with crippling disease or broken children. Like most of us, I’ve suffered periods of depression and despair. I’ve felt trapped and lost, confused and hopeless. Abduction by darkness showed up in many forms.

A Global Message to Fight Daesh

A Global Message to Fight Daesh | Archetype in Action | Scoop.it
In the first Strong Cities Network (SCN) Summit held on May 11-12, a global network of mayors, municipal-level policy makers and practitioners shared their experiences in building community resilience and social cohesion to counter violent extremism in all its forms. According to SCN experts, “cities are on the front line of building resilience to violent extremism and they can develop crucial preventive measures against violent extremism”. They concluded that educational institutions, sports clubs, effective use of social media and national authorities need to work together to create an effective strategy to prevent young people from joining radicalized movements, illegal gangs or others. They stressed the importance of every city building community resilience to fight radicalization and violent extremism.

They may have had very good hearted, non-abusive parents but those parents were often overwhelmed by the societal demands on them, demands that forced them to stumble through the door at night, emotionally exhausted after commuting and working long hours. It's no surprise the warm empathy, compassion and love for their children—and for themselves—had long been in desperately short supply.

America and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Election | Archetype in Action | Scoop.it
If Trump picks up a majority of votes for the office those people have played against the best interests of our country by pretending they forgot what those are. Liberals promised to watch out for the poor, POC and the LGBT community, and we’ve been careful as can be except for that nonvote. We said we wouldn’t fool around with women’s reproductive rights but I think if Donald Trump wins, women who need an abortion may have to go to Australia. If you don’t do everything in your power to keep Trump out of the White House please don’t call yourself a liberal.

“Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed time is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst

On Dragons, Lightning, and Donald Trump as the Rope-Dancer | Archetype in Action | Scoop.it
“It is like a dark cloud spread over the earth, but within that cloud is the lightning lying coiled, ready to strike. Then the [lightning] strikes and the cloud opens, the rain falls, the air becomes clear, the rivers begin to move, new plants come up from the parched soil, and new life is created. The peculiar quality of the [unconscious factor] describes a psychological moment, the breaking up of an old order, and it starts to break up through a sort of intuitive flash; somebody suddenly has an intuition, and that is the first lightning which then dissolves a whole complicated situation which one thought would last forever.”

How Self-Aware Are You? Epoch II: Ego Consciousness

How Self-Aware Are You? Epoch II: Ego Consciousness | Archetype in Action | Scoop.it
Since we learned to talk, humans have told stories around the campfire about the inner life of the psyche and the mysterious archetypal energies which indwell it. We call these stories myths. With borrowed images from nature that instinctively aroused strong emotions like fear, awe, passion, wonder, greed, hope and gratitude, myths presented characters, settings, plots and themes that attempted to answer humanity’s most universal and fundamental questions: Why are we here? Who made us? Why do we act the way we do? How can we stay safe? What are we supposed to do and be?

How Self-Aware Are You? Epoch I, Contd. | Archetype in Action | Scoop.it
“Man, like the other animals, is originally simply the puppet of instinct, just as the infant is. Unless he is moved by instinct, he remains passive, even asleep. When instinct is aroused he reacts precipitately, with a characteristic all-or-none type of reaction. He is aware, it is true, of what he does and of what happens around him. But he has no self-awareness: psychic images flit past in his consciousness, leaving little or no trace, no residue as it were, much as a moving picture flits over the screen. As long as the picture is being thrown upon the screen, it dominates the space; when the light goes out the picture disappears from the screen and leaves no trace upon it. Such is man’s consciousness before the ego develops.” ~M. Esther Harding, Psychic Energy, p. 209.

The Alchemy of Election 2016

The Alchemy of Election 2016 | Archetype in Action | Scoop.it
A nation is like any alchemical vas (cauldron), into which we place the ingredients of our societies, and from which we extract our national “gold,” or “fools gold” as the case may be. In the United States we are blessed with inputs from every national, racial, religious, social, and cultural group. At times those ingredients must appear like chaos to the rest of the world, which experiences no shortage of pleasure from laughing at us, but the result is that our system allows us to select the best ideas from everyone, while bashing the worst ideas out of our culture. The result is what it is.
