People always ask me where do I get my inspirations, so I hope this post will answer some of those questions :) If you haven't read the intro yet, you can find it here yuumei.deviantart.com/art/Fish… :D

I was supposed to finish and post Ch0 -part 1 last Saturday, but due to the sudden news about going Sakura-con, I had to prepare for that instead ^^; (more info here yuumei.deviantart.com/journal/… )

In order to provide you with successful online business services, you need nothing but special knowledge and skills to fully understand how the Internet functions. You can minimize monitoring by starting a home business. In fact, the provision of business services on the Internet can start at home with zero capital.

Ugh, I remember watching some of the occupy events on the news. That was a really scary time even for the people who had nothing to do with the occupy protests. People who had to go to work near the protests were more afraid of being harassed or hurt by frustrated police officers or being trapped in the middle of related conflict outbreaks (then again there's always some fear of the police here).

My family was so shocked and horrified when we saw video of the officer pepper spraying those students there were no words for it.

It is incredible, how you can get the idea in this form. The drawings are stylish and impressive Love them.

You probably know that DA has been bend here (Ch), and the only reason I can see your posts is because the people like you keep coming up new ways to help us to go over the wall. 

Most people around me are just like Vance, they had never saw, thus don't see, furthermore don't want to see. Because they are content with what was presented to them thus far! All social networking has supplements/substitutions, You can access FB, TW, we have Wechat, QQ, Qzone, yea, but you probably knew these. And these subs are good enough for them.

I don't read news papers, nor watch TV news simply because I know they are not true, they are shit that put before our eyes to keep us from the truth. 

If there is a way to make all of them no longer content with the "truth" they were presented with, what would happen? Will they want to know more? Or will they simply coop? 

This is probably for those who read this post, there is a saying here nowadays in the visual entertainment industry: We were fed shit since then, it has been 50 years. We nolonger know what proper food is taste like. We nicked bits and bolts from our neighbor of proper food, suddenly, we knew what we had been fed is shit!

I probably tells a bad story, but I think it parrot the story here. Hope there will be a time when we aren't content with what we have and actively seeking more, then, the truth will leak in.

This is really amazing. I feel stupid for not knowing stuff like this, but I'm glad that you're able to present these problems using art and pictures (while making them beautifully captivating to say the least).

You just earned a lot of my respect for being politically active like that :salute:

Wow--I did some research myself (though this is now in the _past_) and all I can express is shock. I'm a newly legal adult (age wise that is) so of course I was sheltered from some of the scary things that go on in the world. Seeing this story, originally I thought it was works of fiction entirely. Now, I *wish* it were only fiction. Very enticing themes though; makes me want to be a spy!

*walkie-talkie static* The CG Cy-Girls Division is now active!

Politic at the most cruelest way. This... is so much different than what's going on in Denmark. Here it happens that it's the police who's in danger of brutal violence, but that's not even when people is protesting about something. Protests often goes pretty quietly, the police respects the people to say and show what they mean, as long as they wont start destroying things and put other peoples life in danger.
It's when there are soccer games in town and two rivalry groups, who each supports their own soccer teams. When each group clashes, there'll be war among them, they fight and destroys everything around them, they doesn't care if they hurt others or destroys the shops or cars or whatever is in the near of them. And they gives shit about the police. Sometimes, a group of people are only showing up for these soccer games, just to make trouble and fight and ruin things. Often they doesn't even care about the game itself. It cost the country millions of danish kroner to reinforce the police, just to make sure that these two groups wont crash and destroy everything around them. Why wanting to destroy things? No matter of what, in the end it does nothing but bites those troublemakers back in their asses.
Why all this war and destruction?
Why can't people respect each other, instead of tearing each other down?
Why hurt, when you can help?
Why not share, instead of greedily take everything for yourself?
We all want peace, we each and everyone says... but then again; do we all really want that?
Why is goodness and kindness so hard to produce? Some people can... why can't all take by learning from those?
My grandfather once told me a troublesome thing; "As long as there are two people on this planet, there will be war."
How disturbingly true, sadly  enough.
I like your drawings and I like how you stand strong, like so many other brave souls, for peoples rights and freedom.
My great grandfather once stood like that, during 2. World War. I can proudly say that he was one of the freedom fighters, sadly, he was never mentioned among the great names... but he did 'it'; he stood strong to fight for freedom and peoples rights, no matter what nation you're from!

There is often a massive difference between the idea of the police… and the people in those uniforms. 

Sometimes they are good people who really do uphold the concept of the police-who-protect.

And sometimes they are just as bad - if not worse than - the people they are supposed to be protecting us from.

Police, by definition are meant to be good people, but you get the wrong person in the uniform and give them the wrong orders an training, it can lead to some very horrible things.

The censoring of the websites reminds me of when I tried to get to a website called thinkgeek, but I accidentally typed in geekthink, and it came up as 'Forbidden' and it said I didn't have permission to access it.

This just reminds me of how blessed I am to live where I live. Violence like this rarely happens in my town, if at all. This kind of injustice happening in other parts of the world is just...maddening.
