Look around. What do you see?

I see: Every human system is in crisis now.

We all need to become well-informed of the facts of our world.
... if we are all to survive.

Informed consent is absolutely necessary
for healthy civil contracts
which form the basis of our social order.

However, our media systems,
rather than acting like a mirror -- informing us of what is,
instead serves to obsfucate, distract from, and censor the truth,
while promulgating comforting lies which serve the media owners.

This shocking fact has been confirmed by published studies:

Most people who consume large amounts of commercial broadcast media are largely confused about the facts of the world in which they live.

This is due to pathological mechanisms of our own design: Corporations, Enclosure, "Intellectual Property", and the Profit Motive.


We will discuss FIRST PRINCIPLES:
Democratic Self-Rule,
and the Revival of the Commons,
and describe how this relates to the media,
and EVERY important issue of our day.

And after, we'll brainstorm on what we can all do
to fix our media, restore our democracy,
and preserve our Mother Earth for future generations.
