?who is it that censors public media from serving the greater good?

Mass media involves the greatest power that humans can exercise- and power can be spun to good and bad ends. .

What we mean by good ends is that media would help exponentially improve economies and sustainability of societies through every community by integrating these goals across its component parts:

  • commercial side would continuously improve choices custmers and sociieties had access to - after all one would hope that commercial organsiation have urposes that are good for people and which they get better at through experience
  • information/news side - provide as positive and curious view of human contributions to the world in a way that strengthens cross-cultyral rapport and values peace and multiplies goodwill
  • entertainment side - doesn't fall into the traps of excessive entretainment which include passive addiction, trivialisation and the separation of youth from heroes worth heroising

Exercise- imagine if the tv you watched at primetime celebrated the fantasy or real game of helping you hunt out the 100 people most committed combinatorially to making 2010s youth's most productive worldwide decade. Help us start background research of this at www.wholeplanet.tv

.I belong to clubs of people (Entrepreneurial Revolution, Journalists for Humanity and world class brands networks being three practice associations that i have helped found since 1972 when my life was chnaged by first research of 500 youth sharing knowledge around a digital network)  who have worked all our professional lives with media and mediation. It is our hopeful mission that it is possible to do good (and multiply goodwill social relationships) with media.. .

VALUING INVESTMENT IMPACT OF NET GENERATION: Since our first work (published as a book in 1984 after a decade of debating articles in The Economist ) on the possibility of the net generation becming 10 times more productive around the world if we invest in youth co-produccing the most huan of millennium goals, we have debated why the future of our species will depend on whether the internet can be designed to offer smart/freedom media opportunities in every way that is opposite to how mass meia was sometimes used to dumb down or command and contrrol. Of course this debate is a modern rendering of can we prevent george orwell's big brother syndrom becoing the end game of a hyperconnected world. Hostorians of media have reasons to be concerned. Even such a small addition to the power of mass media as audio tape recorders being added to the power of radio waves was first exploited by hitler to mutiply his badwill propaganda. Ask yourslef every second of time that you spend on internet or on mobile connectivity- is the design of this communications tool enabling me -and all i network with - to be more pursposefully productive with my time and emotinally intelligent flows, or less.



Mass media has particular risks that societies would be best to expose children to school to being aware of how to prevent at earliest possible ages:

1 It can addict or depress or through violent or other dramatisation cause (lonely or other) people to have a psychotic detachment from reality

2 It can erode communities; technically mass media licences take away some of the communal commons and risk turning peoples active pastimes into passive ones. One best antidote to this is to let children practice open space before they reach adolescence

3 Raises hidden agenda especially who is censoring the media- we dont know of any large scale mass media that isnt censored lbeit in ways that are often subliminal; It is this censorshio that is usually the cause of an ever wider gap between inconveneinet truth and whole truth. History shows that as such gaps widens the eventual consequence is colaspse of civilisation.

4 Can cause an awful mess with politics turning the idea of public service on its head until ultimately peoples are led by command and control mindsets

More ways to help youth not to be trapped by mass media:

University of Stars  -One of our most important choices of editorial boards at the Journal of Social Busieness is the Future of Heroes. Perhaps you can help us add to our nominations - rsvp chris.macrae@yahoo.co.ukwhich currently include:

  • Monica Yunus - Artists Peace Corps at www.singforhope.org - this networks of arts superstars believes peace can be led out of USA idf we create 2 million peace jobs- mainly cross-cultural spaces hosted by young people in every community
  • An astronaut who happens to have loved his career because of how beautifully balanced earth's ecologies can be seen to be from observations collected from space's satellite age
  • We would love to identify the right stuff in an upcoming sports superstar- we have no sponsorship money to offer simle a chnace to inspire young people to connect the greatest ever solutions to community chalenges ever networked. Of course such stars may have segmented reach - question who would you pick to live the mission of the hundreds of historically black university students whose collaboration entrepreneurship is rebuilding USA community by community through http://jobscompetitions.ning.com  and the most brilliant social networking franchises ever open sourced by any generation

In New Zealand they have worked for 30 years since debating our 1984 book on the future scenarios for the net generation to turn every child into a curious journalist instead of an over-examined and mass media highly propositioned object. see www.thelearningweb.net - the heartening news is that over 10 million chinese families have started taking up this approach to the interface between media and education

It would also help if teachers (including school governors, local public servants and any parents groups concerned with hosting community) were required to read books on the psychological games that mass media manipulators power over including such classics as Packard's Hidden Persuaders and Dichter's Strategy of Desire ...

to charter- back in the late 1980s a group of us started asking how can the world's greatest visions (1) in terms of advancing the human lot be organised so that everyone passionate about a goal can network around it

we welcome all practitioners and youthful learners to the compass of http://charter.ning.com/

 what's the biggest purpose you want to see networked during life time?

ER ECONOMICS & CHARTER help design futures peoples want most- we mobilise and app entrepreneurial economics principle of action futures now to invest in longer-term prosperity that win-win-win models compound

major innovation tools linked in by charter profession include - jobscompetitions; open space ; grounded theory of opinion research; collaboration cafe; collaboration city searches - example-

also 12 grades of practising email- and such k-12 methods as new zealand has liberated since 1984 at http://thelearningweb.net - for evolution of digital structures since 1984 see Gordon Dryden paperfor journal of pro-youth economics and social business


please note that CHARTER like most methods that Entrepreneurial Revolution fans have spent 40 years working on since The Economist first announced ER challenges: while there is a minimal process of facilitating charters- its contextual. Try one out -q1 who in the world will uniquely miss what if we fail on the most valuable www project we know of: namely how do find 5000 youth of net generation whose collaborations can sustain growth through global villages faster than 5000 big bankers/politicos can collapse communities

- video on this challenge televised by new york's bronx tv as follow up to yunus launch talk of youth economics 2008

related yout economics projects: help find 100 leaders who value view that 2010s can be youth's most productive decade ; help innovate audits of all trillion dolar markets- eg health, edu, nutrition, media for the purpose eoples want most

charter is a collaboration leadership tool developed by Macrae Family from late 80s with 2 particular perspectives:

an entreprenurial competence of media people is to help communities question and answer what futures people want most in the most transparent and cross-cultural ways

in reserach for von neumann's biography- we valued his question - in a networking age what tools will people who want to have a good impact on maximum numbers of people use given that they will probaly be asked to help with 50 projects at a time each of whose computing anyaltics will be getting faster nd faster

while charering was intended to be a communications tool for maxiising involveent in progressing a huge goal , it turned out that the most central question oof all chartering is also the most central question for all goodwill audits including those that:

celebrate transparency

modl sustainable growth (as well as risk of collapse) as needing audits of exponential impact which are already spinning the future depending n relationship investments already made

wish to see if abundancy economics odleing eg how knowledge multiolies value in use can be much more valuable than 20th c scarcity econoics caused by consuming up things

like other tools that value open colaboration, anyone's quesstion can be valuable - note how a 9 year old asked the best question among over 1000 New yorkers at this january 2008 briefing
