"Please stop calling this a nation of immigrants. We are not a nation of immigrants. We are a nation of colonizers, ex-slaves, ghosts of genocide victims, and preferred immigrants."

Any internet users who use or even read about privacy services online will be targeted for surveillance by the NSA, according to a new report from German broadcaster ARD.

According to leaked source-code of the US spy agency’s ‘XKeyscore’ software, individuals who search for information about anonymising services such as Tor have their IP addresses logged by the NSA and can be flagged for further monitoring.

Take a break. Honor the still point of neutrality, that special time when anything is possible. It is the pinpoint of change and all it takes is a shift in your perception and an allowing of your desires and dreams to unfold in a way that supports your highest good. So if things are not right in your life, use this New Moon still point to make a permanent and significant shift.

There is a lot of expansion and movement potential in this New Moon. Don’t waste it by getting caught up in drama and negativity. Be grateful for what is working instead of worrying about what is not, especially in the lives of others.

Note taken. Thanks universe via Rita for the space for ceremony to honor this new moon.

"The essence of capitalism is to turn nature into commodities and commodities into capital. The live green earth is transformed into dead gold bricks, with luxury items for the few and toxic slag heaps for the many. The glittering mansion overlooks a vast sprawl of shanty towns, wherein a desperate, demoralized humanity is kept in line with drugs, television, and armed force.”   - Michael Parenti, Against Empire
