If administrators of online social networks decide who uses their platform, and if Facebook decides who can stay and who can go based on its own self regulated Statement of Rights and Responsibilities, then should a particular social network be held accountable for allowing information to be posted? Pretty obvious that the answer to this is “YES” right?

Let’s go one step further … how many hundreds of millions of people can a social network influence with the content it allows to be propagated? Social Networks are a powerful modern tool, not only for social interaction, but also for modern warfare, psyops and influencing or marketing to large numbers of people for a driven purpose.

If that social network is Facebook, being a private company and running by its own set of strict rules, then it should also be responsible for what is being published on its site; the consequences of not being diligent enough in this self-imposed responsibility to global social netizens could prove to be the downfall of the company and its founder, billionaire Mark Zuckerberg. Is this new found internet wealth about to be suddenly ripped from his grasp?

Facebook is already battling on multiple fronts; it being sued by quite a number of individuals for the brash handing of people’s information that had been posted and shared on its private network… Facebook has been accused of unreasonably disabling users personal profiles and this arrogance in standing up and arguing their right to take such action, may now prove to be their undoing … with the speed of change being experienced in cyberspace, today’s paper billionaires could be tomorrow’s debtors.

It doesn’t really matter how much a company might be worth hypothetically if it is has to start investing millions of dollars in defending itself from mammoth claims of negligence and causative negative effect in the interests of national security… If a social network covers the globe, then it is also answerable to multiple nationalities and a vast array of nations with varying beliefs, legal parameters and social customs… Facebook has willingly waltzed into these jurisdictions, and in doing so, the management must understand that it is playing on fields that incorporate a whole spectrum of relevance…

Certainly, obvious cracks are beginning to appear on the cover of the Facebook bubble and the stakes are rising fast: Larry Klayman, the founder of Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch, is known for his strong public interest advocacy in furtherance of ethics in government and individual freedoms and liberties, and now he has taken the first legal step against Facebook for their negligence on the issues of human rights and persecution. Facebook and co-founder Mark Zuckerberg sued for $1 BILLION

Larry Klayman not only has the reputation; he also has the experience and the legal skills to take the issue of corporate responsibility in terms of running and managing a global social network to a whole new level.

James With RAMBO

RAMBO - James With Sylvester Stallone


As RAMBO opens on atrocities of exploitation… introductory text fills the screen… “THE STRUGGLE BETWEEN THE KAREN FREEDOM FIGHTERS AND THE RULING BURMESE ARMY IS THE LONGEST RUNNING CIVIL WAR IN HISTORY“… and as I write this today it is still on-going

This is a struggle that is very real… Living and working in Asia, I see the constant persecution and exploitation that goes on … We must continue to fight against human trafficking and exploitation … the intensity that Sylvester Stallone puts into his RAMBO character, and in making every effort to draw awareness to this very real plight is something we must take on board… we must put our energy into the things that matter… the issues that need focus… and in doing so create a better world for all … this is precisely the meaning behind the RAMBO franchise of movies.

Although the Preacher Missionary character I played in RAMBO gets blown up at a pivotal point when the Burmese Army attacks innocent Karen Hill Tribe villagers, the words of the Preacher taken from Ephesians 3:16-19 resound eternally…

“…Out of the glorious riches he may
strengthen you with power through his
spirit in your inner being, so that
Christ may dwell in your hearts through
faith, and I pray that you, may have
power together with all the saints…”

Producing any media product requires investment funding. Merchandising is vitally important in the funding model of any celebrity or media project. Sylvester Stallone recently launched RAMBO inspired clothing and there is no doubt in my mind that this fashion line will enable Sly to continue to put his best foot forward… his long career presents a man of passion, sincerity and belief in doing the right thing for the right reasons.

Swom Swarms

Swim, swimming, swam… and now… ahem… SWOM” …

Taking an avid interest in the power of online social networking, and receiving countless invitations to join or sign up to a new network … my curiosity was peeked a little by the name… SWOM” … enough to read the blurb and sign up to see what might happen… Discovery of a new frontier perhaps? Or … is this another threat to the Facebook Social Network Empire… think Ottoman Empire a regime brought to an end under an imperial monarchy or the Roman Empire a Byzantine Empire, which ended in 1453 with the death of Constantine XI and the capture of Constantinople by the Ottoman Turks… Online empires seem to be very fickle and frail by comparison.

Perhaps before joining an online network, ask yourself, would you rather be a member of Linked in having approximately 1/5th of the subscriber base of Facebook, but with infinitely more value in terms of professionalism… and certainly more flexibility with a clear and well managed platform of interconnectivity.

Perhaps if SWOM proves massively successful, it will be bought out… Ah, is that the exit strategy? Or is this a Ponzi scheme? Who would be mad enough after Madoff to attempt to go down that route?
