Greenwald is leaving the Guardian

groovygirl would venture to guess that “the worst that is yet to come” in the Snowden files is too hot for even the Guardian to handle.

Let’s stop a moment here and realize we are witnessing the most dramatic shift in the evolution of media/dissimulation of ideas since the printing press was used by university students in Germany to reproduce Martin Luther’s 95 Theses.

Yes, groovygirl is ready to equate the releasing of the Snowden files to the posting of the 95 Thesis as an impact on change in political power and influence.

Media will never be the same again. This is huge, not because of the revelations, although they are proof of rumors, but the way it is presented, digested, and used by the alternative media and public to change ideas and power. And the way it is shunned by the MSM, still trying to hang on to a dying paradigm.

This new way of obtaining and presenting news will be the pattern for the loss of confidence in every major institution that has held power for the last 100 years and beyond. From education to media to finance to government to health.

It is truly amazing to have a ring-side seat to this paradigm shift. This is way more than a debt cycle, that is just a small part of a major cycle shift right now.

Side musing: now before everyone thinks gg is putting Snowden on the same moral level as Martin Luther, let’s just slow down. This is a pattern, not a moral judgement. Groovygirl has studied Martin Luther’s life quite a bit and suggests you do the same. It is fascinating. It was Luther’s conviction in the corruption of the politics of the Catholic Church, not the Catholicism as a religion itself that caused him to post the 95 Theses on All Hallow’s Eve. And then, that post on the door of the Wittenberg Church was meant for the professors of the University for discussion, not the printing press. But the theses, printed (by the newly invented printing press) and widely distributed by students of the University ultimately took down the political power in that day, the Catholic Church. And not only started a new sect of Christianity, but continued a long cycle of the rise in secular political power in noble, and then middle or tradesmen classes, over old monarchies and religious leaders. The Snowden files are the 95 thesis and the printing press is the internet/mobile phone and the Catholic Church is government. It is a shift in power. Less to centralized government and more to what? :decentralization, private, global or virtual, who knows….

groovygirl just loves cycles 🙂 End of today’s history lesson.

Here are the actual 95 Theses, if you wish to read them. Luther’s main complaint was the practice of the Catholic Church at that time of promoting indulgences. Which it is the practice of giving money to the Church to buy someone else out of purgatory and thus get them closer to heaven.


  1. Re: “Indulgences: the practice of giving money to the Church to buy someone else out of purgatory and thus get them closer to heaven.” <– I always think of this when Green enthusiasts talk about Carbon Tax. All of this has happened before and will happen again.
