THE PURPOSE OF THE FREE WORLD
The single human being who attracts the largest crowds on planet earth… is the music star.
That’s a fact, and it is power. The mission… really has nothing to do with music, it only starts with music. Today in the 21st century, it is where the people are. Yesterday they were somewhere else and tomorrow they will be some place different. But today, if you walk in the world of music, you walk where the people are and in the center of power… the power to influence hearts and minds. The power to change lives.
The truth is that power is not centered in Washington, DC. True power is not centralized at all, but it is decentralized. Individualism is greater than collectivism, and the collective is greater than the individual… that’s where The Free World comes in. It is time to democratize music, as many of our ancestors before us have done in other areas of life. Throughout time, nations have evolved from empires, kingdoms, and dictatorships… to democracies, republics, and federations. They have evolved away from centralization, systems in which one human being at the top has all the power – to decentralization, in which the people at the bottom have the power. Economies have evolved away from socialism, state-owned enterprise and businesses controlled exclusively by the government – to capitalism, privately-owned businesses and free enterprise governed inclusively by the people. Religions have evolved away from centralized power as well, in which one all-powerful church forbids the translation of scripture into the language of the peasant people – to decentralized power, in which all human beings are free to translate and read the scriptures in their own language and interpret the words for themselves.
Enter: A Free Mankind. What is it? It’s just a name, the best thing that could be found as far as domain names go without having to pay $1 Million (of course, because the internet’s top-level domain name system is centralized). But the point is, a lot of things still are… even after humanity has seen firsthand, and human beings have witnessed for themselves the success and power of Democracy, Capitalism, and Christianity… also known as “The West.” These three political, economic, and religious systems have taken over the world. Decentralization works. Centralization is primitive and unevolved. Absolute power corrupts absolutely, and no single human being should have it all… Man is not God. If the great God of heaven is all-powerful, than the greatest man on earth is all-powerless… an elected official, not a tyrant. This is the basic concept of "decentralization." But in music, it doesn’t exist yet. The Presidents, CEO’s, and Chairmen of the record labels, publishers, and entertainment companies have all the power.
Imagine a band of all different genres, with hundreds – one day, maybe even thousands – of members. A band comprised of award-winning songwriters, talented musicians, and a team of creative/innovative amateurs & professionals alike, that is “open-sourced” with its doors wide open allowing anyone to come and go as they please, crowdfunded by the people and fans, travelling the world on a national/global live tour, playing the music that people actually vote for and want to hear, rather than it being picked for them by a Music “Autocrat” and placed into major rotation on Radio Top 40. The reality of this idealism is far from being accomplished, but once its grassroots are laid, it is impossible for it not to take root... equally as impossible as it was for Democracy, Capitalism, and Christianity not to work. It just takes a little pioneering in the beginning, and a loose alliance of early-adopters to break down the first fences.
