The Global Public Opinion Vs The National Public Opinion

Global public opinion is now an authentic global voice; the five billion connected carry far more influence and certain powers unmatched by top countries combined.

Why should it sound so strange when a country already so enchanted and overjoyed about its success measured by its national public opinion but cannot fathom and remains in denial about why the global opinion about them is just the opposite? Is this a national misread or a global attack? 

Split the earth into two halves: Global public opinion is now an authentic global voice; the five billion connected carry far more influence and certain powers unmatched by top countries combined. The 200 nations are awakening, finally beginning to understand the restlessness of hidden forces of humankind and its stomping powers strong enough to split the earth into two halves—the right and the wrong, the truth and the lies, the facts and fiction.

The savior is our mind: Humankind would have disappeared from the face of the earth millennia ago. Nevertheless, humankind is the extension of our mind and, to date, the only miracle of the universe, wired like seas of galaxies that allow imaginary travel like interstellar in search of wisdom. This is how we have survived. This is how, over millennia, humankind with humankind rules win. 

All these scenarios will squeeze more brainpower into new depths. The right will become a new visible global force to fix all the invisible wrongs. Whether dazed high on mushroom clouds or combusting under mushroom clouds, new soil may finally arise miles high from the dead and create a new generation searching for humanity and building grassroots prosperity. 

Global public opinion is now driving the voice of the global populace and crushing selective nationalism represented via their citizenry as the national public opinion. Finally, the five billion alpha-dreamers, the connected, hopeful dreamers for a better tomorrow, are now slowly emerging as the most incredible connected voice against the traditionally accepted opinions of the past floating around the world. Is this a new change? Is this a new way to wash deeply embedded across the globe? When truth becomes the enemy of the state, global opinion becomes a new measure. Is this a new way of thinking for humankind that will lead us to a better future?

The global filters: While the hyper-speed circumnavigation of true or false narratives around the world has dramatically increased, the filter tests applied to such narratives based on common sense and critical thinking by the global populace with its billion opinions only create the hierarchy of its credibility within hours. The trust in the world’s media is lost; power is now in the hands of billions with digital devices and millions of maxi-micro local global digital platforms. The size of the global playing field is far too vast, deep, and wide, credibly strong like no other force, including all media of all countries combined. 

The art and science of public affairs: The most respected influential profession in any political leadership or global organizations and institutions worldwide, measuring the ‘public opinion’ today is spinning upside down. Over a century ago, at the starting gates, interviewing a dozen folks in a tavern on key questions provided insight into their daily struggles, tabulated and charted sold as public opinion became the standard. For many decades, anything and everything ever planned, said, written, or delivered by any senior cadre around the world came out in ‘focus group’ reports as an ultra cautionary way to talk about public desires, where a dozen folks from streets over coffee answer moderator’s questions while watched by executive behind two-way mirrors. 

At the industry’s peak, tens of thousands of such focus groups were done daily. All leadership anxiously awaited on-time results before the media appearances or podiums. A few dozen provided what was considered the wisdom of leadership; it took many decades to realize how narrow and biased that information was.

Study why the once most powerful polling, phone interviewing a thousand plus on key questions and deducing a chart of responses, now failing almost 99% of the time. The unified voices and opinions of billions are the new global age games demanding new mastery. 

Social media changed everything: free feedback on anything under the sun, not by just a pack of dozen but by millions or billions of folks at a time, with instant live feedback. As we enter the third decade of the new millennium, the super globally connected digital platforms have enlarged the information-gathering, like catching fish into nets large enough to cover the entire ocean, each time, any second of the day. 

New mindshare is spreading rapidly across the globe. Wars fought in the name of peace are nothing but wars fought for the sake of the war industry. When practiced in the name of printing money, the economy is not the real value creation but economic failure. Nations without borders are nothing but real estate projects, while diversity without tolerance is mere populism. National mobilization of entrepreneurialism is the real value generation and the largest resource of any nation, seeking the right mindsets and skilled deployments. Study more on Google. The rest is easy.

Naseem Javed
Naseem Javed, a Canadian born in a printing publishing family of small merchants, settled over two centuries surrounding the Red Fort in Chandni Chowk, Delhi, India. Educated and raised in Karachi, Pakistan, and arrived in Canada fifty years ago. He spent years at the 1976 Montreal Summer Olympics and learned how to create and develop global-stature organizations and events. Acquired global experiences, serviced dozens of Fortune 500 companies as a senior advisor over 25 years, and learned how to commercialize, monetize, and popularize complex ideas globally. Later, in 2000, Naseem took a sabbatical when he noticed markets lost the art of value creation and adopted value manipulation when one million dollar turnover factories traded as 100 million dollar operations in stock exchanges. He took all his high-value knowledge and experiences, placed them in a shoe box, and almost free for the world's 100 million Small and Medium Enterprises. He developed The National Mobilization of Entrepreneurialism Protocols. The rest is history. Now highlighted as a corporate philosopher, the Chair of Expothon Worldwide, and recognized authority on new economic thinking, where the mobilization of small and medium business entrepreneurialism is tabled as the savior of already struggling economies. Expothon has been sharing weekly information with some 2,000 senior officials at the Cabinet level in around 100 countries for the last 50 to 100 weeks. The narratives are an open challenge to current economic development and offer pragmatic solutions and new thinking on mobilizing the untapped talents of the national citizenry. He is a world-class speaker and author, gaining global attention.
