Project Media Consensus

Open, input based, collective initiatives could very well prove to be of enormous value in the socio-economic and cultural future development of the self-proclaimed free civilizations of the modern western hemisphere. Present socio-economic political power structures still rely on regulation of public opinion through major media networks. Historically, these networks have been able to defend their monopoly by exploiting the economies of scale involved with producing radio, television and newspaper media.

However, at the height of economic growth from the late 90’s onward, the physical infrastructure of the internet emerged extremely fast; and with unforeseen consequences. Within less than two decades, the number of individuals connected to the internet rose from 16 million (0.4% of world population) in 1995 to 2937 million (40.7% of world population) in 2014[1]. Out of this a vast ocean of alternative media arose, driving polarization in the world ever further.

If some form of a truly free democratic collective of individuals belongs to our future, then surely collective initiatives must be its progenitor. Let's start extracting simple truths by reporting the consensus among the most broad spectrum of media coverage.
