(Lucas : Oh they are so desperate…. skipping VAT but still getting Bitcoin regulated as if they are real money or banknotes…are you buying it? Mnt Gox and other incidents where not yet enough to make you see it is as risky as putting your “money” in the fiat currency system. The we are gonna create new ways of exchanging for sure. But not those still built upon the old systems and old quicksands of the past.)
Britain’s tax authority is to stop charging value-added tax (VAT) on Bitcoin transactions. It’s just a couple of days after one of the world’s biggest exchanges Mt. Gox collapsed, which has added to growing worldwide skepticism about the currency.
In a meeting with UK traders, HM Revenue & Customs said it would no longer charge a 20 percent tax on trades or margins of the controversial virtual payment method. Corporation tax and other taxes would still apply, according to the FT.
The tax authority said: “HMRC has been working closely with the Bitcoin industry on the tax treatment of trading in Bitcoins and commission. We will be issuing guidance shortly.”

(Lucas: What about those in government and corporate society and secret societies still mind controlling you and telling you what to do, know, learn and think for their profits, power and agendas, will they also be re-educated…. It sounds like 1984 or Huxley’s story… if you look and see… Wake up….)
London mayor says ‘radicalisation’ must be classed as a form of child abuse
By Adam Withnall
Quote: Muslim children who are at risk of being “radicalised” by their parents should be taken into care, according to the London mayor Boris Johnson.
Humankind once was tuned to their own vibrations to such an extent that they needed little help adjusting when things were a little ‘off.’ Our cure came from within. We would sit in silence and know that something was bubbling up that we needed to clear, or that somehow our emotions were tainted with negativity, fear, anger, hurt, betrayal, etc. Later, our consciousnesses became fragmented, but we still had ways to reset our energy.
The plague of our time is Keynesian economics. It has destroyed the economics profession and enabled the political class to obtain powers never intended.
Keynesian economics provided the intellectual cover for the criminal class we politely call “government” to plunder its citizenry. In the beginning, clear-thinking, independent economists (not dependent on government largess) expressed objections to this “new economics.” There was little new in Keynes’ work and many errors that had been debunked decades before Keynes was even born. Bastiat’s parable of the “broken window” in 1850 is probably the best-known refutation, although similar arguments preceded Bastiat by a century or more.

Human rights activists have for decades been urging the U.S. government to prohibit the use of solitary confinement as a means of punishment.First, it is important to note that articles such as this one invariably elicit a fair amount of comments that say something to the effect of, “Hey, like we should care about hardened criminals … what about the people and families they have destroyed? Screw ’em, lock ’em up and throw away the key. Let ’em rot.” I’ll admit to having that visceral reaction myself when reading about some of the most sadistic crimes one can imagine perpetrated upon another human being. However, this is only a limited view of the entire situation.
The fact is that the U.S. prison system has transformed into a for-profit model which is leading to a greater number of non-violent (and innocent) people being locked up and subjected to this form of punishment. Worse still, the prison system mentality has trickled all the way down into general society where an increasing number of outrageous abuse cases are being reported among police, and even into our elementary schools.
