Professors blogg's Note
We publicize a new piece by columnist American feminist and writer Naomi Wolf, spokesperson of the third wave of the feminist movement.
Naomi has been a public supporter of the justice cause for the Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. Her critic to the legal procedures around the case of Sweden against Assange have caused much attention.
The present article "The streets of 2012" appeared in OpEdNews 3 January 2012, and it is here linked in agreement with author Naomi Wolf.
"The streets of 2012"
By Naomi Wolf:
"What does the New Year hold for the global wave of protest that erupted in 2011? Did the surge of anger that began in Tunisia crest in lower Manhattan, or is 2012 likely to see an escalation of the politics of dissent? The answers are alarming, but quite predictable: We are likely to see much greater centralization of top-down suppression -- and a rash of laws around the developed and developing world that restrict human rights. But we are also likely to see significant grassroots reaction." Read further Naomi Wolf's The streets of 2012

Clearly the world is unsettled with poor performing politicians. They are often either corrupt or negligent from which society suffers. I copy to you a question I put to United Nation's- Helen Clark on this subject.
What is the UNDPs position on the United Nation’s recommendation for the implementation of country by country legislation directly incorporating fiduciary principles as a method to protect against corruption and control errant government officials beyond their already established constitutional mechanisms and anti-corruption agencies?
I noted GFI economist Dev Kar’s report, - Illicit Financial Flows from the Least Developed Countries: estimates illicit thefts by government officials in 48 of the poorest countries at US$197b. That money could be claimed back.
However, without clear fiduciary legislative frameworks to set the rules of control over democratically empowered politicians and officials to manage state power, corruption will remain unchecked and the people will continue to suffer as a result.
If the UN drafted and advertised a proposed template for fiduciary legislation it would create a good discussion point aimed directly at the problem.
I hope I can have your support on this proposal.
