"If an Arab and a Jew can look at one another and see the Akashic lineage and see the one family, there is hope. If they can see that their differences no longer require that they kill one another, then there is a beginning of a change in history. And that's what is happening now. All of humanity, no matter what the spiritual belief, has been guilty of falling into the historic trap of separating instead of unifying. Now it's starting to change. There's a shift happening."

“ … Here is another one. A change in what Human nature will allow for government. "Careful, Kryon, don't talk about politics. You'll get in trouble." I won't get in trouble. I'm going to tell you to watch for leadership that cares about you. "You mean politics is going to change?" It already has. It's beginning. Watch for it. You're going to see a total phase-out of old energy dictatorships eventually. The potential is that you're going to see that before 2013.

They're going to fall over, you know, because the energy of the population will not sustain an old energy leader ..."

Zimbabwe 'phantom voters' exposed

BBC News, 6 June 2011

Zimbabwe - New Era?

A leaked version of Zimbabwe's voters' roll contains some 2.5m too many names, according to a report by a respected South African organisation.

Previous elections have been marred by
fraud and violence
There are more than 41,000 people aged over 100 - four times more than in the UK, which has a far larger population and longer life expectancy.

"This phantom vote is more than enough to settle the outcome of any election," said the author, Richard Johnson.

President Robert Mugabe has called for elections to be held this year.

But his long-time rival, and prime minister in the power-sharing government, Morgan Tsvangirai, says they should be held in 2012 after a new constitution has been passed to ensure they are free and fair.

The 2008 elections were marred by violence against Mr Tsvangirai's supporters, and observers have alleged widespread fraud in previous polls.

Tensions have been rising recently between supporters of Mr Mugabe and Mr Tsvangirai, as elections draw near.

Mr Johnson says Zimbabwe's government has been at pains to keep the voters' roll secret but he managed to obtain a copy, which he analysed for the South African Institute of Race Relations.

He notes that, although Zimbabwe's life expectancy has dropped to 49, there were 41,100 voters aged over 100.

He also found that 16,800 people shared the same date of birth - 1 January 1901.

Some 230 voters were aged below 18, some of whom were below two years of age.

"If experience is any guide, phantom voters are likely to vote early and often in the next Zimbabwean poll," Mr Johnson said.
