American Censorship Day November 16 - Join the fight to stop SOPA Transition Currency 2.0 - an online banking system for local money UPDATE (10th June 2011) Dear Transitioners, This is a note to say that we have now began work building a service infrastructure for complementary currencies (Transition Currency 2.0). We are working to the 'Request for Proposal' attached below with some minor modifications. The Dutch complementary currency foundation QOIN are now partners with nef and Transition Network in the development of the service infrastructure, having worked with us from the beginning on the scope and functionality of the system and having now also made a significant financial investment via a Dutch philanthropic donor. After a competitive tendering process, we have chosen to use the Cyclos open source software for the back-end of the platform which is a tried and tested system for CCs connected to legal tender as with the existing Transition Currencies. Cyclos is also set up to run mutual credit, timebanking and C3 schemes and has been used by hundreds of CCs throughout the world. Josh Ryan-Collins
Occupy Wall Street's Battle Against American-Style Authoritarianism The Occupy Wall Street movement is raising new questions about an emerging form of authoritarianism in the United States, one that threatens the collective survival of vast numbers of people, not through overt physical injury or worse, but through an aggressive assault on social provisions that millions of Americans depend on. For those pondering the meaning of the pedagogical and political challenges being addressed by the protesters, it might be wise to revisit a classic essay by German sociologist and philosopher Theodor Adorno titled "Education After Auschwitz," in which he tries to grapple with the relationship between education and morality in light of the horrors perpetrated in the name of authoritarianism and its industrialization of death.

The Monetary Future Powell Memo « The People's Book Project Class War and the College Crisis: The “Crisis of Democracy” and the Attack on Education The following is the first part of a series of articles, “Class War and the College Crisis.” By: Andrew Gavin Marshall Today, we are witnessing an emerging massive global revolt, led primarily be the educated and unemployed youth of the world, against the institutionalized and established powers which seek to deprive them of a future worth living.

The “Crisis of Democracy” For the general population, these movements were an enlightening, civilizing, and hopeful phase in our modern history. The Trilateral Commission later explained its views of the “threat” to democracy and thus, the way the system ‘should’ function: The “threat” of educated youth was especially pronounced.
Central Banks/Federal Reserve Posse Comitatus Act The Act, as modified in 1981, refers to the Armed Forces of the United States. It does not apply to the National Guard under state authority from acting in a law enforcement capacity within its home state or in an adjacent state if invited by that state's governor. The United States Coast Guard, which operates under the Department of Homeland Security, is also not covered by the Posse Comitatus Act, primarily because the Coast Guard has both a maritime law enforcement mission and a federal regulatory agency mission.
