Be Powerful! Support The Change You Want to See In The World!


Award-winning journalist Ben Swann travels the globe on a quest to uncover personal stories of struggle and success from people who are working to advance the betterment of the human condition

This is Global Activist—a series about people who aren’t waiting for the world to change.

There are uprisings, demonstrations and public calls to action happening this very moment that are underreported or completely ignored by institutionalized media. In this series, Ben Swann and Jasmine Monroig give voice to activists from these movements and others, who are creating change in the NEW global protest movement.

Protests are only a small part of the activist movement building across the globe. Activism involves art, culture, organization, information and education. Styled after embedded journalism, we take you through a process of understanding how and why movements across the world are demanding reform and change from banking, government, policing and political powers.

We will reveal activist movements that are just beginning, others that have succeeded and still others that have failed. We delve into the background of these movements, the people who are organizing them and the protesters who are calling for change, as we explore what that change looks like.

  1. In the end bringing about positive change for the betterment of mankind means facing reality. The reality of the situation is that the human race has devolved to the point of no return.The vast majority are no longer capable of any positive growth or change. Yes it was others who initiated this grand scheme, their great work of ages which initiated the downfall. But the human race was all too willing to play along and do whatever it took to bring about their own demise. So in the end it will do no good to only remove the so called powers that be to put it simply. For as a whole humanity will only continue this vicious cycle all on it’s own and would rabbidly resist any change. It is only once ALL are removed who are beyond redemption that any positive change can be made. This means the zombies also known as the human race itself must be eradicated, all the deviants, all the reprobates. There are only a extremely rare few now capable of sane, logical, and productive existence and are even willing to give up that chance at life if that is what it cost to take out the trash and end this nonsense once and for all. If this statement offends you in the least it is because you are too cowardly to face reality, your self, and the fact you are the part of the problem.

    • You sound less than optimistic that there will be change for the better. I see a slow and small (r)evolution taking place around the world. To use the current cliche: People are waking up.

      Just like the elite has been working to change society for the worse, those interested and alert to this CAN change it for the better:

      Scientists at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have found that when just 10 percent of the population holds an unshakable belief, their belief will always be adopted by the majority of the society. The scientists, who are members of the Social Cognitive Networks Academic Research Center (SCNARC) at Rensselaer, used computational and analytical methods to discover the tipping point where a minority belief becomes the majority opinion. The finding has implications for the study and influence of societal interactions ranging from the spread of innovations to the movement of political ideals.

      “When the number of committed opinion holders is below 10 percent, there is no visible progress in the spread of ideas. It would literally take the amount of time comparable to the age of the universe for this size group to reach the majority,” said SCNARC Director Boleslaw Szymanski, the Claire and Roland Schmitt Distinguished Professor at Rensselaer. “Once that number grows above 10 percent, the idea spreads like flame.”

      An important aspect of the finding is that the percent of committed opinion holders required to shift majority opinion does not change significantly regardless of the type of network in which the opinion holders are working. In other words, the percentage of committed opinion holders required to influence a society remains at approximately 10 percent, regardless of how or where that opinion starts and spreads in the society.

      • Maybe you should read my comment again, especially the beginning. Regardless of how many may think they are “awakening” all but an extremely rare few are even capable of any meaningful comprehension which you just helped to make apparent. It would be nice if there was any where near 10 percent of the human species still capable of any progress in any manner but the fact is 99.999999999999999999999999999……………… percent of the human race is corrupt beyond repair. By the way there is actually great cause to be optimistic knowing the destruction of this failed species is very near. This planet called earth is no longer able to support human life as it is now and the situation is made worse by the day.

        • You could take yourself out of the equation, make it easier on you and he folks trying to institute positive change.

          • Let’s not tip him over the edge, though….

          • No, all this constant whining and avoidance of reality only confirms what I’ve said and is actually amusing in it’s predictability. Have fun bringing yourselves down. I have done my part and will move on.

          • ridiculousness | November 5, 2015 at 6:19 pm |

            Insisting things can get better isn’t avoiding reality anymore than saying everything’s hopeless is facing it.

          • If you want to keep on following me around like a troll and try to criticize what I say you should at the very least try and actually understand what it is I’ve said. The only thing I said is unable to make any progress is the human race itself. I referred to mankind as being hopeless, nothing else. The human race is certainly not everything. Of course most are unable to see past themselves to realize the bigger picture and realize that the human species is just a miniscule part of the greater whole. It goes without saying that such egocentric views only lead to ignorance. The human race has had more than enough time and every opportunity to make even the slightest progress but instead as a whole indisputedly chose to move backwards and devolve. So let me say it one more time, there is cause for hope and to be optimistic since the self induced destruction of the human species is quite near. For it is the human race itself that stands in the way of progress. Any who deny this obvious truth are unwilling and/or unable to face reality. If any wish to add to this conversation at least do so in a intelligent manner that is constructive. Showing that you didn’t comprehend what you’ve read and trying to put words in one’s mouth does noone any good and only helps to perpetuate ignorance.

            I’ve replied to you on a total of one other article, hardly trolling. Also, I understood exactly what you were saying. Not agreeing isn’t the same thing as not understanding. You see no way out, that’s on you. Guess its a convenient means of absolving yourself from making any effort to improve things.

        • As I suggested: You are pessimistic about the human race and about the ability of human society to change… I’m sad for you.

          My analysis was based on my full comprehension of your initial post.

  2. What if the reason we’re here,
    is to learn to choose; Love or Fear.

    Oppression always employs fear.
    Many folks are paralyzed, can’t face the truth, because they are stuck in fear.

    The question of our time is becoming;
    do we Love ourselves, each other, the children enough to stand up for ourselves.

  3. How about this for an activist moment: Jailed for redressing a grievance with our district court judge.

  4. A Place for ISIS in UNESO, Please! If Albanian Muslims can enter Kosovo in UNESCO, then ISIS can also become a member of UNESCO

    UNESCO in Paris received a demand from ISIS for recognition, following Kosovo example !

    Why not let ISIS that is also a Muslim non-recognized state that destroys Christian heritage in UNESCO ? The demand is signed by Europeans For Serbian Kosovo and Serbian Radical Party (leader: Seselj who was liberated from The Hague) .

    Albanian Muslims’ kidnappers of Serbian Christian culture want a place in UNESCO!

  5. The point is I have made it clear in my view that the only way things can get better is when the human race itself is taken off the playing field to put it simply. Humanity has made it painfully obvious there will be no progress. Of all the life on just this planet humans only account for a small fraction of it and only for a very brief time. Yet the human race has wrought outright death and destruction to life on this planet and even the earth itself. Earth is no longer even capable of supporting human life as a result and the situation made worse every day. Any responsible and sane entity therefor knows what need be done. If any one feels this viewpoint is wrong then by all means present your viewpoint. Not nonsense but some viable argument. I would like nothing more than to be proven wrong because it doesn’t get much sadder than to see an entire race heading toward oblivion.

      And again, I get your view. It’s self-destructive, self-defeating, entirely counterproductive, and a great way of ensuring exactly what you lament will happen, happens. If everyone thought like you, I would agree, we’re doomed, for nothing can survive the tyranny of resignation. Since not everyone does, there is still hope.

      Again, you’re masking your bleak and fatalistic pessimism under a veneer of smug intellectuality. As a human, you are incapable of the scope you claim to have. You’re a part of humanity, suck it up and get used to it. Our flaws are yours, and one of those flaws is an inability to perceive beyond yourself. Your view that we have rendered the earth uninhabitable is nonsense. The earth can recover from far more than what we’ve done to it, and has done so in the past. However, nothing will be fixed as long as people like you pretend there’s nothing that can be done. You act as nothing but a cheerleader for annihilation.

      Also, insulting people shows nothing save that you’re a whiny, smug pessimist incapable of objectively viewing criticism. Seriously, calling me “retarded” is a serious retort? Only people who believe humanity has no hope are smart, and everyone else is mentally retarded? You’re showing an inability to reason past your own nose. Guess you’re more stuck in your own skin than you realize.

      Anyhow, cry on about how it’s hopeless while the rest of us try and improve things. It’s your right to complain, as it is my right to not agree. Time will demonstrate who does the world a greater service, those who complain that nothing can be done, or those who do something to try and help.

      This debate has been fun, although I generally prefer to argue with people who don’t just call me stupid and tell me to re-read their argument.
