    Journalism
    Who, what, where and how.has been replaced by editorializing the why.
    Equal time…
    Watch the movie “Goodnight and Took Luck.” Edward G Murrow’s coverage of McCarthy and his hearings.

    That old school model of journalist integrity, against the need for revenue.

    The result is the dumbing down. Folks don’t know what credible reporting even looks and sounds like if they’ve never seen it.

    Older folks like me forgot!
    I remembered…with a little help…;)

    It mystifies me that un-inquiring minds have become embedded as a default setting among vast populations. For hundreds of years each generation within mechanizing / industrializing / techno-innovating societies has met information capacitance challenges that alter in-situ life patterns and experience and has required continual upgrades to the previous generation’s iteration of successful life formulas. Progression isn’t always linear, as 0bservers come to realize. It may be a waste of time cracking the nut of “why” Fake News and why so many feed at its trough. Keep your eyes on the prize, as a smart man told us once. 0bservers also realize from evidence presented in so many of the plasma universe and other research papers with pretty visual and numerical graphics Ben links for us, the potential of Potential, boundary conditions and critical mass concepts for example. I find it rewarding to apply this kind of information to how I experience the interconnections of all Life. Truth always sets you free. Truth is freely available for a practicing, inquiring mind.

      Hey Terese,
      I enjoyed reading your comment. I appreciate the philosophical view you have.
      I have been an observer of everything, searching and searching, looking for answers. I have found many truths, and held the values and lessons dear.
      However, since I found Observers, I feel like I finally have the ultimate answers. My jigsaw is far from complete. But with all of the kindred spirits I have meet over the last 2 months, I can see the picture forming beautifully. Thank you.

      🙏😻☯️🧚‍♀️

        Hi Avril, I appreciate the sentiments you express, thank you.
        I give Ben and Kat credit for setting and maintaining a high-level bar of excellence (awesomeness!) and rigor for this 0bservers membership community, and I’m grateful for its daily company.

    Morals and values. That is what is missing. Parents are scared to teach good manners. I see it all the time. I hate it all the time. I hate to hate.

      You said it. The decay of our society in that regard is overwhelming.

    MSM brought this on themselves, they went from news coverage( in depth propaganda) , to soundbites, to just in house talking heads skewed to their audience.

    I recommend John Casey’s book, Dark Winter. He includes lots of graphs produced from the data sets he studied for years. He is disappointed with the Obama administration’s dismissal of his conclusions regarding the coming grand solar minimum and its relationship with increased cosmic rays, volcano activity and earthquakes. Mr. Casey discovered the alteration of sea surface temperatures(SST’s) by NOAA under the Obama Administration – NOAA smoothed their SST’s to minimize the little ice age period’s contribution and thus emphasized their climate warming agenda. Recently, a MIT climate professor, among others, concurred with Mr. Casey’s SST’s finding.

    No “monetary incentive” would be present if not for the general stupidity of the american public. I’m sorry guys, but honey boo boo turned The Learning Channel to Jello because thats america. To ironically quote a movie we’ve all seen, “A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky, dangerous animals and you know it.”

    We have abandoned coordination and cooperation in favor of quantification and monetization. The scales may be tipping in favor of an even more meaningless and dysfunctional monetary system or we may just be becoming more “woke” so to speak to another of the many deceptions that we have suffered. I am a confirmed atheist but I can say with confidence that this time around it’s going to be the “god of mammon” that will be civlilisations grim reaper. Ex. -The goal of little billies softball team is not to promote sportsmanship and personal achievement but instead to produce and consume status and wealth. The trophy is not really meant to reward little Billie; instead, it serves as a status symbol bought and paid for by Billies Mom and Dad. This anecdotal scenario exists as a point on a spectrum of human behavior across a broad range of individuals at a given time. Just like all the many causes of our changing weather, there are many many factors that have lead us to where we are now. Our collective perspective on any universally relevant topic exists on a continuum. A thriving society prepared for an uncertain future must be founded on peace and must foster the greatest potential of all it’s citizens. A perpetual state of war unplugs our collective ability to think in terms of the greater good broadly in the long term and instead refocuses us inward on short term personal gains in service of personal survival. Sadly, great big ideas that solve great big problems are rare with this sort of cultural mindset. So much potential wasted. We are living in a civilization in rapid decline, we can feel it in our bones regardless of the proof. It doesn’t take a detective to see that there are a small group of people who are hoarding the vast majority of humanities resources and that capitalism is the means of the heist. We sacrifice meaning and quality of life for the tokens of time served every day as capitalists. The fear of “losing it all” underpins every decision we are driven make. We tell ourselves that we are supporting our families but our families suffer most from our constant need to produce more. We are slaves to our debt which is driven by our addiction to consumption and we are so busy keeping up and getting ahead that we don’t have any time to stop and consider a better way. I am a dreamer and I can see perfectly clearly in my mind’s eye that a better way is attainable. It has never been a matter of “can we”, it’s always been about, “will we.” In any case, our individual achievements will never matter as much as our capacity to build consensus around impending revelations regardless of the implications. Nothing will ever be 100%, there will always be those among us who have not yet or never will “get it”, but the tipping point is still just 51%.
