American companies, in general, which were once the most revolutionary business models, were historically born out of centralized structures that made heavy decisions imposed from above.
Now that companies are seeing a certain relinquishment of the authority of influence to the middle or derivative administration of customer feedback, the consideration is generally directed towards a tangible product or service and its potential impact on the bottom line.
There is an undercurrent of experts that companies that have not moved to this new model are deliberately disadvantaging themselves by choosing the limiting growth factor of clinging to power as a means of maintaining control.
Today there is a relevant example of a different kind of mass-produced product in America and across the global ecosystem. It is the product of the influence of ideology, the ability to generate ideas that impact the thoughts and value systems of society.
Media giant Facebook is said to be more powerful than the government, as an estimated 44.3 million cable network users will have cut the cord by the end of 2020. Understandably, online prints tout just $ 3 per print compared to traditional media costing an average of $ 28 per print.
The benefit of Facebook’s centralized manufacturing epicenter: real-time information that is free to the user because advertisers pay for it. The recent downside: the rush to stop what Zuckerberg and his team see as a bogus narrative, though censorship has potentially pushed even loyal users to seek asylum elsewhere.
Due to the centralized control of not only social media, but also traditional media, some 70 million Americans on either side of the worldview seek the truth on matters ranging from Russiagate to Pizzagate to Votergate.
The bipartisan desire to reform Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act was championed by members of the legislative branch of government for the sake of personal protection and liberty. As a result of this phenomenon, as well as the recent censorship of electoral rhetoric for conservative and liberal thinkers in different regions, decentralized media factories are multiplying as rapidly as garage groups of the 1960s. In the current political climate of l America, Facebook users are moving away from the once-familiar platform for alternatives like MeWe, while Twitter users are leaving their microblogging tweets in Talk.
Parler CEO John Matze calls a decentralized model one that gives choices to influencers and users, rather than keeping all the power at the top of the organization. Still private, Matze asks users of all stripes to join the free speech platform devoid of ideological indoctrination, though to her dismay, the site has unexpectedly turned into a post-refugee camp. electoral campaign for the conservatives to rally the troops, or a future terrorist self. -registers sycophants, depending on the worldview of the particular user.
The downside for a media company of accumulating power at the top has diluted its once all-powerful voice, effectively returning power to that of what they might call “the ordinary housewife”. who, after a recent mistrust of the mainstream media, now expresses their own freedom. speech in the ready ears of a willing listener.
The possible benefit for traditional media to maintain the line with its centralized hub will be the possibility that a private company like Parler can continue to fund the decentralized business model. A basic tenet of the young decentralized media will be the full power of the people to boycott the makers of individual ideology with whom their message does not clearly resonate.
Right now, it’s too early to predict whether decentralized media companies like Parler will have enough resistance to go public or be bought out by someone who aims to provide users with an American platform with its only product, freedom of expression.
Moreover, the decentralization of the American media machine is nothing more than a magnifying glass on the obviousness of the great American ideological divide, the by-product of what has historically been fair and equitable reporting that allows the listener to compose his own mind. Scientists and archaeologists have long predicted this problem to America, unsure whether to call it by a name like “Civil War” or just by division.
Fueling the scientific discussion in a world where everyone makes their own predictions is everything from street riots to phenomena in the sky such as the solar eclipse of 2017. He was the first to cross the entire American continent. since 1776, making a sortie just above Fort Sumter in Charleston where the first shots of the Civil War were fired.
When it comes to extrapolating the media divide lines of American ideology, scientists have raised eyebrows as they await a natural, but similar symbolic phenomenon, which is expected to occur seven years later in 2024. This times, the phenomenon will complete the second half. of a giant X across America, intersecting in the heart of the country, in an unassuming location in Carbondale, IL. While there is nothing to brag about, Carbondale, also known as Little Egypt, is a time bomb on the New Madrid fault line.
So, as the mainstream media collapse ensues with the possibility of yet another American Civil War at stake, the man who has been the hopeful “delivery boy” in at least half of the country continues to tweet his thoughts at will, as his supporters make their exit to Speak.
Of course, it is no coincidence that the new American Civil War has already started virtually. After all, we are still in 2020 and that is how we are doing now.
