Can we research the original truth of ENTREPRENEUR
I am gping to start about 5 // parallel conversation openers here and then see if anyone says something. For point of record people who came in early before I had a fair chance to set the whole scene:
*Linda arrived before 1 opener
I believe in diversity of thread forms and freedom of speec. As fas as i know anyone can start a thread at ned as long they are not a hitler aimimg to propagate hatred. Topics that interest me happen to involve liflong action learning. I do not accept that the conversational ping pong style of theread is the only one relevant to that.
Yesterday I started a web http://journalistforhumanity.com . Like many webs of mine it had been a blog for about 5 years. I invite you to go see because it maps exponential evidence (probably beyond reasoing doubt) inter alia that in the west banking and education are entrepreneurially as bust as subprime.
Oddly the purpose of journalists for humanity is to try and have a small impact in turning round the share of vouce that depressing news gets. I would like to propose the journalistic truth -to have the courage to confront what's bust that's where the good news can start being renewed. If journalism is a profession then have no fear in raising mind opening debates might be the appropraite hippocratic oath. Since professions are the last monopolies nobody goes tut tut to -it is I believe vital - to the journalist responsibility at least to system integratin (ie ensuring compound conseqeunces never go off track into the land of inconvenient truth) - to keep questions whether each profession agrees and actions its hippocratic oath.
If journalists hadnt been bullied into you must not alarm audiences with climate crisis until its 100% evident, a lot of exponential destruction could have been saved. New orleans would have spiralled quite the way it did. Oil would not have taken USAhostage to what its international policy became in the white house ruled not for or by the people but for or by what texas spends most on vesting interests in
My family has been involved with media and journalism for many generations. I am interested in the maths of media whereas my dad http://www.normanmacrae.com spent his whole life writing for a living (for The Economist)
There are 3 bits of advice that my dad gives about journalism:
1 It can only be truly done when the writer doesnt have a guru reputation to lose. In the old days, ie before television when you saw your mediator, there were 2 main ways to ensure that the quality of journalism was forever openly curious. 1 mae all writing collegiate not signed off by a singular person with reputation to make or break. Roatte journalists so they wre on subjects they did not tooo much about but were given a licece to explore.
2 Use an optimistic -joking but serious tome - the bigger the conseqeunces of the story you were covering
3 Know that every chnage in media involves a huge period of crisis - when a newish media falls into the wrong hands as rado did you get Hitelr propagating its waves pied pipering a place or nation into cults that spiral the exact opposite way from the dna codes (such as thiu shalt not kill) that have kept humanity evolving. Back in 1973 my dad and I knew that the story of our generation would be the crisis of the interent- a medi chnage bigger and more immediate than even the invention of the printing press- one that would within one geration designed whatever global systemisation becomes. And pattern rule 1 of all human relations systems is they spin one of 2 direcatly opposite flow comsequences - very good news for all or very bad news for all.
Onto post 2 where the word entrepreneur has been scared to scottinh journalists since 1800 when it was coined in france and actually back to 1700 when the main event in the future hostoru of Scotland occurred, one that caused people like adam smit to map what is still today the core molecule frames known as economics.
