The formula is not new. However, it has taken precedence as one of the mainlines of information. We are talking about the up-and-coming of the electronic publication. The numerous types of electronic publications distributed throughout cyberspace range in topics from intelligence on software and hardware, to free speech and the legal issues which have a consequence on the ever-growing telecommunications world. Electronically produced publications have grown in leaps and bounds in the last year. The number of individuals on the net requesting this information has also increased. And as long as people are interested in this concept, and need the knowledge that is provided, the electronic publication concept will survive. Such publications as 'Phrack', 'NIA', 'The World View', 'FBI', 'CDC', 'Informatic', and scores of others have published news on major happenings in the telecom community, as well as worthy information on many different types of computer systems, operating systems, and security issues. The EFFector, a publication distributed by The Electronic Frontier Foundation, focuses on legal issues in cyberspace. As the telecommunications community becomes more evolved and complex, the law will come into play. And The EFFector will be more and more important as time goes on. In many cases, some types of issues covered by electronic publications would not have been addressed by other mediums, such as television, and newspaper. Therefore, this concept becomes vital due to the lack of attention given to consequential effect, we take it upon ourselves as editors of publications to educate the masses...because the dominant mediums have neglected to do so. One cannot put a price on the informational value of these magazines. We, as editors, take an alternative view of the world, and write about it. Computers, modems, and telecommunications issues have not yet been accepted by the populace as 'newsworthy'. However, everyone in cyberspace knows that we are the frontiersmen of a era that will live in infamy. We are the groundbreakers for a new technology. And we report on it with the utmost urgency and priority. Those who choose to discount the concept of the electronic publication, and the urgency of the information produced in these times of electronic suppression, will submit to the vat of electronic benightedness. At some point in time, the issues covered in today's e-mags will concern everyone. And those who are an operative part in today's generation will be able to proudly look back and affirm, 'I was a frontiersman, ...a groundbreaker'. In summation, I hope that you will advocate the electronic publications of your choice. All of them may not accommodate your taste, but there is something out there for everyone. Below are some addresses you might consider contacting in order to get on the mailing list. Thank You.

The Desert Fox / Cyndre The Grey Harvard Law Review MARCH, 1984 97 Harv. L. Rev. 1163 ASSESSING THE SCOPE OF MINORS' FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS: JUVENILE CURFEWS AND THE CONSTITUTION Although there is no longer any doubt that children are "persons under our Constitution" whose "fundamental rights the State must respect" (1), it is also clear that the rights of children are not coextensive with those of adults. The unique developmental and emotional characteristics of childhood give rise to special state interests that in some cases may justify restricting children's rights more severely than the rights of adults. The tension between state interests and the rights of the "child as person" reflects conflicting and unclear visions of the role that the government should play in the lives of its minor citizens, and manifests itself in the uneven development of the law of juvenile rights. With regard to juvenile curfews -- laws that ban only minors from streets and public areas during certain nighttime hours (2) -- courts have often struck the balance between children's rights and state interests in favor of the state. The result has been the substantial curtailment of the liberties of children. The rights infringed by curfews -- freedoms of movement, association, expression, and other liberties that contribute to social and intellectual growth -- are rights that minors as well as adults possess. Courts have nevertheless upheld juvenile curfew ordinances (3) on the basis of the often cited but seldom clarified principle that the rights of children are subject to greater restrictions than are the rights of adults (4). But the courts' failure to examine critically the scope and legitimacy of this principle in specific instances has stripped the principle of its justificatory power and transformed it into a mere restatement of conclusions reached without reflection. The courts' failure to articulate specific rationales for affording less protection to the rights of minor citizens than to those of adults is indefensible. The state may have special interests in protecting and guiding children, but if the fundamental rights of minors are to have any content, the state's power to override those rights by asserting special interests cannot be plenary. Rather, the state's special interests should extend only to a relatively narrow band of concerns that relate to the unique developmental and emotional vulnerabilities of children. Only if courts require a strict correlation between the child's special needs and the actions of the state can the state's unique interests be served with minimal infringement of minors' fundamental rights (5). I. CURFEW ORDINANCES The differential application of curfew ordinances to minors and adults in this country strikingly exemplifies the law's special treatment of children. Whereas curfews affecting adults have generally been struck down as unconstitutional (6) except when temporarily imposed during a state ofemergency (7), some permanent curfews applying only to minors have been upheld as valid exercises of the police power (8). Moreover, although they are usually enforced only sporadically if at all, juvenile curfew ordinances -- in contrast with curfews aimed at adults -- are widespread (9). The Supreme Court has never addressed the constitutionality of nonemergency juvenile curfews, and the federal and state courts that have confronted the issue have failed to reach a consensus (10). Courts have frequently sidestepped equal protection objections to juvenile curfews by striking down challenged ordinances on grounds of vagueness or overbreadth (11). In addition, some courts have invoked notions of substantive due process or equal protection to invalidate curfews as impermissible limitations on the fundamental rights of minor citizens (12). Other courts, however, have given far less weight to the rights of minors and have upheld juvenile curfew ordinances (13). Relying on the established doctrine that the "state's authority over children's activities is broader than over like activities of adults" (14), such courts have found that general prohibitions of minors' presence in public areas between certain hours are reasonable in light of cities' interests in protecting children, reducing juvenile crime, and promoting parents' knowledge of their children's whereabouts. This reasoning was adopted in Bykofsky v. Borough of Middletown (15), the first federal case involving a constitutional challenge to a juvenile curfew, in which the Third Circuit affirmed without opinion the district court's finding that a narrowly drawn curfew ordinance was valid. Although recognizing that such a curfew would have infringed the fundamental rights of adults (16), the trial court balanced the borough's interests in the safety of the children and the community against the liberty interests of the children and held that the affected rights of minors were not fundamental (17). Because the court believed that fundamental rights were not at stake, it applied only rational basis scrutiny and upheld the ordinance (18). Although the Bykofsky court noted that the Supreme Court had not articulated a framework for analyzing differences between the rights of children and adults (19), it offered no such framework of its own to justify its conclusion that the rights of minors merited nothing more than rational basis scrutiny. The court instead relied upon generalized assertions about children's immaturity and vulnerability -- assertions that cannot alone justify wholesale infringements of the rights of children. Although greater restrictions of children's rights may be warranted in some cases, the state should not be permitted to dilute the rights of a citizen simply because she is below the age of majority. The relevant inquiry with respect to any restriction on the rights of children is whether the restriction is truly justified by state interests pertaining uniquely to children. Such an inquiry entails not only an analysis of the overall scope of minors' rights and the state's special interests, but also an assessment of the weight courts should accord those rights and interests in each particular case. II. THE SCOPE OF CHILDREN'S RIGHTS A. The Rights of Children as Persons As courts have recently begun to recognize, children possess fundamental rights and enjoy constitutional interests shared by adults (20). Indeed, the Supreme Court has forcefully declared that "whatever may be their precise impact, neither the Fourteenth Amendment nor the Bill of Rights is for adults alone" (21). Despite this pronouncement, however, the Court has declined to consider the "impact of these constitutional provisions upon the totality of the relationship of the juvenile and the state" (22). The Court instead has continued to maintain that, although "[m]inors, as well as adults, are protected by the Constitution and possess constitutional rights" (23), the state nevertheless has greater power to restrict the rights of children (24). Thus, the Court has held that a state may legally create different obscenity standards for minors and adults (25) and that a minor's right to privacy is not necessarily violated by a statute requiring a doctor to notify a minor's parents before performing an abortion on her (26). Yet although it is clear that children's rights are not coextensive with the rights of adults, confusion persists as the Court continues to determine the scope of children's rights on a case-by-case basis without constructing a practical, comprehensive framework for analysis (27). Restrictions on the fundamental rights of children are typically justified by reference to the unique characteristics of childhood. The primary characteristic cited in support of such restrictions is developmental immaturity, or the child's lack of intellectual and moral capacity to exercise her rights so that she harms neither herself nor others (28). Although children's rights advocates and legal scholars alike have repeatedly challenged this underlying assumption of incompetence (29), the assumption continues to pervade the law and profoundly affects the social and legal world in which children live (30). Unique concerns about the developing minor not only serve to rationalize state intrusions, but also motivate them and often result in substantial restrictions of liberty -- restrictions usually cloaked in beneficent terms. Such restrictions are justifiable in certain cases: there can be little doubt that children are, in some respects, different from adults. Because their capacities of reason and emotion are not yet fully formed, children are more likely, in certain situations, to make decisions or take actions that may cause serious damage to the children themselves or to others or may even alter the course of their entire lives. But the danger in recognizing differences between adults and children is that this recognition can easily become the end of analysis. Children as a class are necessarily different from adults, but the differences need not always be constitutionally significant, and the mere fact of childhood should not be a sufficient justification for differential treatment in a given case (31). Although the state, when restricting the rights of minors, may claim to be acting in the minors' best interests, this claim of paternal concern should not deter the courts from critically examining the state's actions (32). @-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@ SOCIETY AS A FLUCTUATING PROCESS OF WANT AND NEED By MFactor It has been said that our society as a whole has no goal, and that we're quickly going down The Tubes because of this very fact. Individuals are becoming more and more dissatisfied with what they are getting out of life, and are complaining to the wind about their "terrible hardship", which in fact is little more than a mild inconvenience in comparison to the strife occurring worldwide. They suffer, because they are in a service network (READ: Society) that is not allocating satisfaction to them in return for their labor. A society, by definition, is a dynamic system of personal interactions. When those personal interactions are meeting the needs of a majority of individuals, then a society is said to be "successful". The Soviet society has proven unsuccessful because it suddenly admitted to itself that it had too many bombs and not enough bread on the shelves. It also lacked the freedom of spiritual expression, which *IS* a human necessity. The Democratic Capitalist society has proven successful so far, but for two main reasons: a) There's a whole world out there to take advantage of b) There's plenty of people willing to bring in new riches. I'm not slamming our current social structure, but I have to say THIS: We have a lot of sharks in our bathwater. we cross-feed on ourselves and we regurgitate more than we originally bit off. That's Capitalism -it's like Alchemy, where you create more that what you originally had. But just as alchemy can be explained away with chemistry, Capitalism as a Magickal society where everything is alright forever is debunked by the fact that we've been TAKING from the world outside our borders and adding to our internal wealth. This is why we as a nation have been getting richer and richer for the past several decades. But the planet is a closed system, and we eventually WILL NOT be able to allocate others' wealth into our borders. When that happens, this country will be in as big a heap of trouble as the Soviet society has been in these past few seasons. In actuality, THERE IS NO PERPETUALLY OPERABLE SOCIETY. Needs are always in flux and when the needs of a reasonable number of people are no longer met, society changes. This is the way of revolution, the way of secession, and the way of a true democratic election (in its pure form). Tides turn, things change. Social purpose is inconsequential. But I know a LOT of people who are saying that society's not meeting their needs, and the fourscore and seven homeless folk I see every day suggest to me that a change is in order. - The Mfactor @-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@ THE ELECTRONIC FRONTIER FOUNDATION'S FIRST ANNUAL PIONEER AWARDS CALL FOR NOMINATIONS (Attention: Please feel free to repost to all systems worldwide.)

After doing this, She initiated Jesus for ascension to Godhood (Although born human, Jesus had the Divine hereditary Components. These were inactive, and Jesus was not God before being initiated)." @-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@ Der Weltanschauung Volume 1 Index By Brain On A Stick World View Distribution Manager Well, here it is. After a couple of days of rereading all ten of our past issues, I've finally put together this index. Due to space limitations I couldn't go into alot of gory detail about each article; besides, I wouldn't want to bring that much work on myself anyway! The main reason I compiled this index was to let all of you readers know what you missed in past issues so that you can use it as an aid in requesting back issues. For those of you who are interested in requesting back issues, contact me at BRAIN@TARONGA.COM. Let me know if there is a size limitation on the files you can receive. I've included the size of each issue for this purpose. For those of you who requested back issues in the past and never got them, sorry. My old account at the University of Houston died and I was unable to get back to you. I'll be sending you letters shortly to see if you're still interested.
