Continued from The Future of News
We want to make people aware of the problems we have, but we
don't want to make people depressed or paralyzed with fear. We
also want to make people aware that we are making progress with
solving problems, but not to give people a false sense of
security, or to make people feel that things are going to be
fine, because progress does not mean that everything is going to
be fine, there is still a lot of work that needs to be
done. We have to remind people even though we have made
progress, and even though we have changed some laws, the problem
never fully goes away. And one example of this is the
. You can fight for human rights and equality,
but racism and discrimination still exists. You can protest to
stop wars, but wars still happen and nuclear bombs are still
being made. You can fight corruption and crime, but corruption
and crime still happens. So the problem is clear, if we don't
improve education and teach our children effectively, and teach
everything that we have learned, then we are condemning our
children to repeat the same mistakes, and to suffer from the same
problems that people all around the world are still suffering
from today. So this is not just about delivering the News, this
is about Educating the public. So much so, that people are armed
to the teeth with knowledge.
If the News is not
educational and effective in delivering important information, then it's almost completely worthless
and dangerous. And the same goes for education, if
not effective and complete
, then that too is almost worthless and dangerous. If the News does not inform
you enough, and if education does not prepare you enough, then
we will always have crime, we will always have corruption, we
will always have wars, and we will always have suffering. We have to
fully understand that all our problems are related to our
lack of knowledge, and the wisdom that is needed to use our
knowledge, effectively and efficiently.
So the goal is to present to people with more then just the most
important issues of the day, we also want to provide people with
all the necessary tools, knowledge, information and wisdom that
is needed to solve this problem. No more thinking that someone
else is going do it. The public should know exactly who's doing
what, when, where and how. No more confusion, no more wondering,
no more waiting. People need to be informed, and not just what
our politicians are doing, but more importantly, what our
government is not doing. This way citizens will know what's not
being done and that the responsibility of solving this problem
is up to them. This is one of the reasons why having an
Open Governance System
is so important. But we just don't want to
give the power to the people, we also need to give people the
necessary tools, knowledge, information and wisdom. We can
slowly phase in an open governance system, so no drastic changes
are needed. As more people learn and become more knowledgeable,
an open governance system will naturally take on more
responsibilities, giving people more control over their lives
and more control over their future.
So this website will be more then just the News, it will be your
control panel for life. And when
installed in cities around the world, you will be able to use
the same control panel that you use at home. Seamless
We need to make learning easy. We need to make learning more
accessible. We need to make learning more socially acceptable.
We need to make learning part of everyday life by having more
educational programs on TV, having more information and
knowledge in News Papers, and having more information and
knowledge broadcasted over the Radio. People need more facts and
a lot less opinions and lies
