If administrators of online social networks decide who uses their platform, and if Facebook decides who can stay and who can go based on its own self regulated Statement of Rights and Responsibilities, then should a particular social network be held accountable for allowing information to be posted? Pretty obvious that the answer to this is “YES” right?

Let’s go one step further … how many hundreds of millions of people can a social network influence with the content it allows to be propagated? Social Networks are a powerful modern tool, not only for social interaction, but also for modern warfare, psyops and influencing or marketing to large numbers of people for a driven purpose.

If that social network is Facebook, being a private company and running by its own set of strict rules, then it should also be responsible for what is being published on its site; the consequences of not being diligent enough in this self-imposed responsibility to global social netizens could prove to be the downfall of the company and its founder, billionaire Mark Zuckerberg. Is this new found internet wealth about to be suddenly ripped from his grasp?

Facebook is already battling on multiple fronts; it being sued by quite a number of individuals for the brash handing of people’s information that had been posted and shared on its private network… Facebook has been accused of unreasonably disabling users personal profiles and this arrogance in standing up and arguing their right to take such action, may now prove to be their undoing … with the speed of change being experienced in cyberspace, today’s paper billionaires could be tomorrow’s debtors.

It doesn’t really matter how much a company might be worth hypothetically if it is has to start investing millions of dollars in defending itself from mammoth claims of negligence and causative negative effect in the interests of national security… If a social network covers the globe, then it is also answerable to multiple nationalities and a vast array of nations with varying beliefs, legal parameters and social customs… Facebook has willingly waltzed into these jurisdictions, and in doing so, the management must understand that it is playing on fields that incorporate a whole spectrum of relevance…

Certainly, obvious cracks are beginning to appear on the cover of the Facebook bubble and the stakes are rising fast: Larry Klayman, the founder of Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch, is known for his strong public interest advocacy in furtherance of ethics in government and individual freedoms and liberties, and now he has taken the first legal step against Facebook for their negligence on the issues of human rights and persecution. Facebook and co-founder Mark Zuckerberg sued for $1 BILLION

Larry Klayman not only has the reputation; he also has the experience and the legal skills to take the issue of corporate responsibility in terms of running and managing a global social network to a whole new level.

James With RAMBO

RAMBO - James With Sylvester Stallone


As RAMBO opens on atrocities of exploitation… introductory text fills the screen… “THE STRUGGLE BETWEEN THE KAREN FREEDOM FIGHTERS AND THE RULING BURMESE ARMY IS THE LONGEST RUNNING CIVIL WAR IN HISTORY“… and as I write this today it is still on-going

This is a struggle that is very real… Living and working in Asia, I see the constant persecution and exploitation that goes on … We must continue to fight against human trafficking and exploitation … the intensity that Sylvester Stallone puts into his RAMBO character, and in making every effort to draw awareness to this very real plight is something we must take on board… we must put our energy into the things that matter… the issues that need focus… and in doing so create a better world for all … this is precisely the meaning behind the RAMBO franchise of movies.

Although the Preacher Missionary character I played in RAMBO gets blown up at a pivotal point when the Burmese Army attacks innocent Karen Hill Tribe villagers, the words of the Preacher taken from Ephesians 3:16-19 resound eternally…

“…Out of the glorious riches he may
strengthen you with power through his
spirit in your inner being, so that
Christ may dwell in your hearts through
faith, and I pray that you, may have
power together with all the saints…”

Producing any media product requires investment funding. Merchandising is vitally important in the funding model of any celebrity or media project. Sylvester Stallone recently launched RAMBO inspired clothing and there is no doubt in my mind that this fashion line will enable Sly to continue to put his best foot forward… his long career presents a man of passion, sincerity and belief in doing the right thing for the right reasons.

JW is Watching You!

The distraught father character of Bryan played by Liam Neeson in Taken left us with a lasting impression of how vulnerable women are to being entrapped and sold into human trafficking. A memorable quote from the film sums up the feelings of rage and anger that goes through those who have direct experiences of this horrible trade: I don’t know who you are. I don’t know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don’t have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that’ll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don’t, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.

Unfortunately, the reality of this crime against humanity is far less sensational, and affects millions of men, women and children all over the globe. The Federal Bureau of Investigation website gives some important reference links and highlights the fact that human trafficking is prevalent in the USA.

Ashton Kutcher to UN: Twitter, Facebook can be Great Weapons in Fight Against Human Trafficking












By Pam Bristow- Huffington Post I was fortunate enough to be present at the United Nations Headquarters in New York on November 4 for the launch of the UN Voluntary Trust Fund for Victims of Trafficking in Persons. To be managed by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), the fund will provide humanitarian, legal, and financial aid to victims of human trafficking. The initiative is a central element of the new UN Global Plan of Action;

"Partnering WITH the World to Create a Positive Difference"





Size might matter… But Bigger is not necessarily better!

Attention one and all, and consider the analogy of this present day cyber issue to the David & Goliath story (Who are David & Goliath?) …. when there is injustice in the world, things need to change… Is Facebook going to be brought down by falling on its own “sword of arrogance”? Does Facebook’s reigning supremacy of the social networking arena mean it can randomly and negatively affect the lives of individuals, just because it has some hidden agenda and way of determining who it behaving properly in the world of online social networking?

PLEASE READ ON… Is this a responsible reply to a polite and civil inquiry made to Facebook, after my personal account was disabled for no good reason?

Hi James,

Your account was disabled because your behavior on the site was identified as harassing or threatening to other people on Facebook. Prohibited behavior includes, but is not limited to:

• Sending friend requests to people you don’t know

• Regularly contacting strangers through unsolicited Inbox messages

• Soliciting others for dating or business purposes

After reviewing your situation, we have determined that your behavior violated Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities. You will no longer be able to use Facebook. This decision is final and cannot be appealed.

Please note that for technical and security reasons, we will not provide you with any further details about this decision.

Thanks,

Liam

Well, I can assure you I did not behave in a threatening manner, or badly, or harass anyone. Quite the contrary… my use of Facebook was in such a way that I treat all people with respect, and many of my friends were highly appreciative of my status updates, which I enjoyed sharing.

My response to “Liam” at Facebook was this:

27th October 2010

To Whom It May Concern:

Whilst it is appreciated that I have received a reply now to my inquiry, I categorically object to the assessment made in respect to why my account was disabled.

Despite the statements made below such that ” behavior on the site was identified as harassing or threatening to other people on Facebook. Prohibited behavior includes, but is not limited to:

• Sending friend requests to people you don’t know

• Regularly contacting strangers through unsolicited Inbox messages

• Soliciting others for dating or business purposes

After reviewing your situation, we have determined that your behavior violated Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities. You will no longer be able to use Facebook. This decision is final and cannot be appealed. Please note that for technical and security reasons, we will not provide you with any further details about this decision.” I strongly disagree with the action as taken, and the allegations made as such.

The seriousness of these allegations made about my behaviour on Facebook, without full disclosure of the information sources and without a proper legal basis has been considered from a legal perspective and is actionable at law. This type of unreasonable charging and actions is considered not only a personal threat and damaging to my reputation, but also something entirely illegal and it is well within my rights as a public speaker and spokesperson for freedom of speech propagator, as well as an entertainment specialist with a great and extensive knowledge of publicity awareness to further this cause, and raise awareness of the draconian measures the Facebook Company and those responsible for such actions are practicing. These will not be tolerated in the modern world of global business awareness, and thus continuance of such practices will lead to corporate demise and ruin.

I certainly intend to publicize this extreme decision by FACEBOOK and certain individuals associated with the Company… And only see it as a great shame and brazen attack against personal freedoms of people, and therefore to ensure that the company or individuals who are responsible for disabling my account will be held totally accountable to the law and to the greater God that guides one’s destiny.

Sincere regards,

James With

THIS IS ONLY THE BEGINNING… Facebook must acknowledge its wrongs, its mishandling of this issue… and rectify and compensate people for the damage they have caused me and others who have been unfairly judged…

We will not go quietly into the night…

To make the point here, as the character President Thomas Whitmore said in the Hollywood film “Independence Day”, a film I once played in “We are fighting for our right to live. To exist! And should we win the day, … We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We’re going to live on! We’re going to survive!”

As a person who believes in good prevailing over evil, I will continue to fight for civil rights, for justice and for freedom here and to my last breath… I will fight against this tyranny, oppression, and persecution…

I support you Mustafa Fteja in this fight against the Facebook Gorilla… And may the best man win!

Sincere wishes and regards,

James With

New Yorker Sues Social Network Over Deleted Account

Being cut off from Facebook can feel like torture – and one man is seeking damages to the tune of half-a-million dollars.

A New Yorker is crossing one friend off his Facebook list – the company itself. He’s slapped the company with a $500,000 (£316,000) lawsuit for what he calls an unexplained closure of his account. Mustafa Fteja, 30, used Facebook to keep in contact with his family in his native Albania. But back in September, he attempted to log in, only to be kicked back with a message saying his account was disabled.

(More on TIME.com: See around the world with Facebook.)

Repeatedly contacting the company, he received only form letters telling him he had somehow violated the Terms of Service. And he’s had no luck reaching a real person in the four months that have passed. “I lived in a communist country where people had no rights. This looks the same to me,” Fteja, who grew up in the Eastern Bloc, told the New York Post.

The Staten Island man says he’s never done anything to violate the service agreement. He’s even accused Facebook of religious discrimination against his Muslim heritage.

The money is one thing, but NewsFeed thinks that Fteja would be happy simply being able to log back in and write on his friends’ walls. It’s sure to be his happiest status update ever.

If your Facebook account was suddenly disabled, how would you react? Panic attack? Twitter tirade? How about a lawsuit?

That’s how one Staten Island man reacted after he discovered that he no longer had access to his account on the social-networking site. Mustafa Fteja has filed a $500,000 lawsuit against Facebook for essentially cutting him off from his social circle, according to the New York Post.

The 39-year-old has been without Facebook since September, when he was informed that his account had been disabled. Fteja said he has tried for months to get a response from Facebook about the issue, but to no avail. Fteja denies that did anything inappropriate or used his account for spamming purposes.

Fteja said he used Facebook to keep in contact with friends and family around the globe. According to the Post, his suit makes some pretty bold accusations – from communism to religious discrimination. He wants monetary damages and the restoration of his account.

Facebook did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Fteja joins a long line of bizarre, tech-related legal issue of late – from the woman who sued Google over walking directions that she claimed resulted in her getting hit by a car to the more recent story of the woman who walked into a mall fountain while texting and threatened to sue.
