In the first half, constitutional attorney and president of The Rutherford Institute, John Whitehead, talked about the rise of the police state in the United States. America has become plagued by bureaucracy, secrecy, perpetual wars, militarization, and surveillance, he declared. Essentially, we've become a nation of suspects, and the citizenry has very little recourse against any kind of action by the police, he said. By "police" he includes various kinds of law enforcement such as Homeland Security and FBI agents, who have SWAT teams, and use hollow point bullets (which explode on contact).
The current US government is not what the Founding Fathers had in mind-- it's a business or corporate concern, Whitehead continued, and the expansion of the Dept. of Homeland Security combined with the NSA could really be considered the new 4th branch of the government. This new branch of government is sending out a signal that they can come after their adversaries-- "if you step out of line, we're going to know everything you do, we can arrest you in the middle of the night," and you have no privacy, he outlined. The Patriot Act, which eviscerated the Constitution, has authorized military equipment like grenade launchers, tanks, and assault rifles to be given to local police departments, essentially creating a "standing army" which George Washington warned against, he stated.

In the latter half, neo-renaissance scientist and conceptual designer, Elliott Maynard, discussed why integrating traditional, linear science with non-linear consciousness technology will yield breakthrough solutions for the global problems we face. He has laid out a new paradigm or operating system for the future human, that incorporates changes in consciousness, such as using coherent thinking to reduce conflict at the quantum level. We'll also have hybrid robots that interface with electronics but are part organic, he added.
Intelligent population management, he suggested, is an important aspect of the future, and we need to have an increased educational outreach in third world countries. He spoke about "supersensonics," a concept developed by the late Christopher Hills, involving merging intuition and psychic abilities with high technology for amazing and innovative results. Maynard also touched on such subjects as the rain forest, coral reefs, alternative energy, after-death communication, channeling, exopolitics, and interspecies communication.
