FROM SOMEWHERE IN SILICON VALLEY #5

For years we have been criticizing those around us in the media, the orientation of journalists, the influence of advertisers, now as well with our politicians. The balance among these constituents moves around with the voice of our society. It is out of balance right now. We have a deep belief that others should not impose their will on us. That is a fundamental belief most Americans agree with. We are not focusing on our narrative, we have been hijacked. Our adversaries are gaming our system to their advantage. We should be reframing how we engage with our narrative. This is critical to our survival. We might view those that we resonate with and listen to their voice, but must distance ourselves to be able to best navigate the tough issues that effect our lives. We are not doing that well these days. If Ourmedia can contribute, it must.

The major issue of our day is not being framed appropriately.  We have Russia probing how to influence our lives. The Chinese want to redefine the value of intellectual property and rights, the Europeans have their priorities, as do others as well. We have ours, and that is our freedom to choose where we prioritize our time based on our trusted resources. The value of time. Time with family, with work with fun. The Russian probe should not be viewed as an attempt to take down our President, but a deep dive on how the Russian may be trying to influence our society. We must keep our focus on ways our adversaries are probing to give it our best shot to maintain our freedoms. When you are on top others take shots at you. We must come together to better understand how to protect our liberties. Take leadership!

OurMedia can redefine how we build our collective voice. Not to replace what we have, but to better connect the solutions that are available to build a better tomorrow. More to come…….
