We Are At War – ALT M

altmI have an idea that could be useful to all those in the alt-media who wish to join forces and beat the onslaught of the corporate owned control freaks in the MSM.

Goal:
To develop an alternative media clearinghouse that is based on Current News Topics submitted only by those in the alt-media who wish to support and participate in the clearinghouse.

The website for this outlet should be simple, text based.

Traffic will be topic driven. Members can choose what topics they believe are High Level, Medium Level and a Constant Level Alert in order to fulfill the desired effects of getting the information to the public while letting the public know that alt-media exists and is a vital part of the public’s discourse and welfare.

Members have complete creative control regarding how they approach each topic. The only part necessary to agree upon is the topic level, more about that in a bit.

Topics:
It doesn’t matter how you approach a particular topic as long as it is titled and labeled either fact based or opinion driven.

All contributions submitted should be short, in summary form, with a link to a longer piece if needed or desired.

If a High Level Alert is perceived to last longer than the 24 hour news cycle it is hoped members will continue to push the current high level narrative even if it is just a reminder to your viewers or readers of your work or the work of others in order to be mindful of the current situation. Keeping the topic in the forefront of the public’s mind is paramount. As they says,  it’s all in the timing.

What Constitutes alt-media?
1. Nothing MSM.
2. A thoughtful and very informed individual/citizen.
3. A small news outlet or fact based citizen journalist with a constant presence on the net.
4. A dedication to diminishing the corporate owned MSM.

How It Works:
All members of the alt-media are welcomed to subscribe to the Alt-M.tba website and agree to do at least one story in concert within 12 hours under the topic of a high level alert

Three Levels of Alerts:
High, Medium and Constant.

Incorporating the memetics paradigm is highly encouraged.

High Level Alerts:
Are topics that appear to be catching on, like a festering wound, but are not based in fact, sourced or a questionable narrative that is receiving incalculable amounts of spin by MSM. Under a high level alert it is expected that all members will produce some sort of story/video combating that alert over a 12 hour period. All members must participate, even if that means you are already working on something and waiting for more information, still, let your viewers know the topic exists and that your report is coming soon. The alt-media topic is what matters most and that there are others outside the MSM working on the subject as well. “Be calm facts are coming.”

Examples of High Level Alert: SOPA, war, a whistle-blower coming forward, terror attack, weapon’s deals, government worker or agency lying – something that will either be confirmed with facts or works to counter or question the spin coming from the MSM. High Level can also be a bi-yearly or monthly concerted effort to inform the public that there are alt-media sites available to them at all times.

Medium Level Alert:
This would be something less urgent, but enough concern that people come together to produce topic based stories in concert. This level would be important information that could lead to further conflict or danger, it is a very watchful eye. If the perception is that all facts are not being released, or the MSM is leading up to a particular misguided narrative, this level would be akin to the town crier.

Medium Level topics are ongoing until they become High Level or they are resolved and archived.

Medium Level topics might be something you wish to pontificate upon over the course of a week, a month or years. It’s always in wait or at dead rest. It can open the door to more information from your readers or other alt-media members, perhaps even provide an outlet for whistle-blowers.

Constant Level Alert:
A piece produced by alt-media members at will, reminding the public how the MSM gets it wrong, or out right lies. This level provides an opportunity to report and shine a light on the spin and lies of the MSM and their over paid and elbow rubbing cohorts.

It is recommended that all members document their observations whenever possible using tags, dates, times and a document the particular medium. A good example would be, Chris Cuomo stating that it is only legal for the MSM to look at the DNC hacked e-mails produced by wikileaks. 10/16/16, 10AM, EST. CNN (link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7DcATG9Qy_A).

Everything else is up to the writer, and as a reminder you are always free to approach any topic in your own creative way and from your own personal perspective, as long as you state to the viewer or reader you are talking about facts (which you can back up) or this is your educated opinion.

Your suggestions for topics are also a good way to share and be inspired by others. Think about giving props to another alt-media news site or author if you are inspired to write or bring a particular topic to the attention of your subscribers.

Website:
Depending on the sophistication of the system to distribute this idea can become rather complicated – but I encourage the development of this system to be simple and easy to access.

4 Pages:
Front Page – Topics and Alert Level displayed.
Page 2 – List of News Outlet and archived updates.
Page 3 – List of Individuals Reporters and links to their site.
Page 4 – Member’s Page Access.

The front page, outlet and individual reporters pages will be open to the public and have a direct link to your site or channel.

The Member’s Page is only open to members. Here members are allowed to set topics and vote on the levels of any particular subject, it is also a place to commit to writing or recording with others alt-media members about different subjects, perhaps even a vbulletin forum.

There should also be an e-mail and text alert system once a topic becomes high level. It is further thought that any topic reaching a high level alert should be decided by at least 5 trusted members who agree unanimously to alert members through the texting and e-mailing system.

Donations:
A kickstarter and donation buttons, perhaps even a Patron page can be established

Why?
We need this because we are at war and could lose so much if not all. The abuse and power of MSM and the growth of the Independent Alternative Media has changed the information landscape, from Andrew Breitbart to wikileaks and the hosts of other investigative alternative news web sites whose priority is exposing the truth, not spinning the story for parties, lobbyist, banks and corporations. Love him or hate him Andrew Breitbart was correct, we are at war with the MSM, we need to jump in and lasso the narrative quick, and we need to take hold and use the memetics at every turn!

alt-media has to act and organize fast, it can’t be bothered by personal politics, religion, race, gender or philosophy – all the things use to divide us – right now it’s about securing the narrative and making sure there is always a chair at the table for the truth and your freedom to report and speak it. If we don’t organize now, we could lose our voices.

To Recap 
1. Incorporate memetics, video and written paradigms.
2. Where topics are driven by timing and the effect they have on the well being of the public to decide.
3. Using the concept that there is power in numbers and knowledge is power.

Calling out the MSM quickly and with force creates it’s own being or entity to contend with, alt-media thus becomes a bullhorn, grabbing more of the public’s attention in order to educate or at least giving the publics the notion to say, “Hold on, not so fast MSM,” in a bigger and more focused way.

What do you say, let’s light this candle!

update: 02/16/17
Just a quick note, the amazing response by the alt-media and the broader community to help and stand-up for pewdiepie was not only amazing, but demonstrates and proves the power we have as members and advocates for the alt-media, and as the people and citizen of many nations. I beg you to start organizing now before the MSM catches on and works to silence every voice that chooses to take the leap and step-up. Remember, they have endless funds, plenty of time, a ton of lawyers, own most of the politicians, along with having the deep state in their pockets.

FYI:
TPP is back under a new name TISA.

Sorry folks, sadly Trump’s no friend to Net Neutrality.

.
As most of you know I am a big advocate for free speech, so whatever your bag I believe you have a right as a human being to express your thoughts. If you’re interested I outlined mine a bit in this article here, but to recap, watch the video linked to pewdiepie above, he made a really nice and sincere response. I can honestly say his channel didn’t interest me, but after his response I actually subscribed in order to support him, this man is very dynamic. I also realize he does a lot of silly caca, but if he decided to take on any issue as a vocation there’s no doubt in my mind he would be very successful because he is authentic, the real deal, a mensch.

There has also been a number of wonderful video responses made regarding what happen to pewdiepie; if anyone wants links leave a comment and I’ll pull them together and post them directly here.

In all honesty, I have to say this particular situation was really a clear shot across the bow, people need to come together and develop a small yet efficient system to remain vigilante. The MSM may not make the same mistake of picking on a very popular youtuber again, they will simply chip away and silence those who do not have the same exposure or numbers.

The reach needs to be broader than the local community as well. If pewdiepie didn’t have the number of subs he has (53 Million, YOW!) he would have been left to the wayside or relegated to the dust bin of history.

No matter, I have to admire pewdiepie, a.k.a. Felix Kjellberg  (BTW,  did you know Felix means happy, and isn’t that a wonderful name for this fellow? ), he could have taken his money and gone on to other things, but he didn’t, he stood up and not just for himself, but for humanity, for free speech; how often do you get to do something like that in your life and actually make a difference?!

Personally, I have a lot of dull and boring things on my plate, far too may filled with pointless stress and anxiety, trust me, I’d rather do something like the above than what I actually do to survive, wait, hold on, whilst I check my lottery ticket…..  As I was saying, if things turn around in one direction or the other I would love to be part of a project like the above, a movement or some mechanism that works to protects individual rights to speak rather than funding a small cabal of 6 media outlets that own 80% of the MSM we get now.

Please, keep me in mind, and feel free to ask. Remember, advice is always free and help is on the way!

Open Source State

“There will never be a really free and enlightened State until the State comes to recognize the individual as a higher and independent power, from which all its own power and authority are derived, and treats him accordingly.”Henry David Thoreau “Civil Disobedience”

 

It’s time to create an Open Source State. bartopen

To do this you need a lot of people, educated people, to move into a state and filibusterer legislation.

What other untapped demographic in the U.S. could provide such a large number of creative and well educated people?

Those with outstanding student loans, of course.

What better resource full of diverse, talented and dedicated people are there in the U.S., but a whole lot of educated folks  in endless education debt.

All it takes is one state representative to write a bill that offers them sanctuary. If need be give them refugee status. Put it on the table, spread the word. A few grants later you’ll be using their talents to develop a more just and fair society. We have all the models, it’s only a matter of using these models for the benefit of people, rather than corporations.

“Don’t try to fix a broken system, create a new one to displace it.” – Buckminster Fuller

One Model: If you have a student loan all interest – usury – is forgive – people work off the principle by contributing towards a better society – if that means working towards free education for all citizens, so be it – and only a portion of the principle is deducted from your salary; all income based, with no employment discrimination based on educational debt.

That’s just one of the many ideas that can be incorporated.

Over the course of the next few weeks I will be working to develop more open state idea. Perhaps someone else has already started working in this direction, or you had the notion yourself, or maybe you think it’s just a good idea whose time has come? Please, use the comment box below to share your thoughts, links and ideas so that we can actively move towards solutions to the ills that we currently face in our society.

It’s Time.

Light this candle!

But, to speak practically and as a citizen, unlike those who call themselves no-government men, I ask for, not at once no government, but at once a better government. Let every man make known what kind of government would command his respect, and that will be one step toward obtaining it. – Henry David Thoreau

…one will do what is right or best just as soon as one truly understands what is right or best” -Socrates

The fact that man knows right from wrong proves his intellectual superiority to other creatures; but the fact that he can do wrong proves his moral inferiority to any creature that cannot.” – Mark Twain

Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.” -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

The Open-Source Everything Manifesto: Transparency, Truth, and Trust

updates…

okay so you think it’s a lot of work

First of all we have to agree that anything worthwhile is a lot of work, but this can be joyous work, and who doesn’t enjoy joyous work especially, for all the right reasons?

…so let’s say a massive group of people moves into a city and we help each other out, we then take over the city government, legally, through elections and start changing the laws. Soon more like minds will be attracted to what’s happening and join us; remember one Koch Brother can’t replace 100 people at the voting booth. Not to mention more educated people vote, and people with student debt are a demographic that is  educated .

As those people move into the city they will also begin to move into state government, their ideas will spread to the locals and those people will become more politically active. As those numbers grow they will put massive pressure on the sitting state elected officials, even if they are funded by a Koch Brother; keep in mind those who would take Koch money will eventually find no reason to run.

Then, as proper legislation is passed we do what the lobbyists do, we learn from what Matt Taibbi wrote so clearly and eloquently here  SUE SUE SUE & IF YOU CAN’T WIN, STALL. We fight fire with fire, love fire and we work and hope that our fire shines brighter and truer than theirs, and that it catches on to inspires others across the country. It’s just a matter of going from 0 to 1,  you just have to start.

– that’s real grass roots.
