Okay… So, listen — Before you finish reading this post, you’re going to find yourself wondering if this guy is INSANE… SIMPLY DELUSIONAL… A GENIUS (they say there’s a fine line between genius and insanity — and who am I to say on which side of that fence I might actually sit?)… or WHATEVER — and you’re also going to wonder whether or not everthing I’m about to say here, is actually legitimate, and possibly true, and what I believe it to be.
All I ask is that you give me the benefit of the doubt for awhile… read my story… consider it with as open a mind as you can muster — then let the pieces fall where they may.
In the end… if I turn out to actually be INSANE or DELUSIONAL — at least the authorities will be alerted and they can come strap me into a strait jacket, haul me away, and put me on some meds. — But IF I AM CORRECT in what I believe… then we will be on a course to make great strides in solving many of the world’s most serious and challenging problems, and set the stage for “HAPPIER LIVES FOR EVERYONE!”
Sound good? — Okay. Well, let’s get started.
For starters — WHO AM I?
My name is Michael L. Brown (My friends call me Mike)… I’m 49 years old… I live in Fostoria, Ohio (USA)… I’m born and bred of the working class, here in the rural heartland of Northwest Ohio… I’m happily married (and have been for 25 years)… Have 5 children (all of whom are now adults, and out on their own — “Hoorah!” :D )… 7 grand-children (and 1 on the way)… 1 great grand-child… and two small dogs (a terrier mix and a miniature dachsund).

Mgr in a discount chain store)… MANUFACTURING/MACHINING for 15 years (where I rose up from being an entry level machine operator to managing my employer’s stockroom)… THE MORTGAGE INDUSTRY for 7 years (where I worked with my wife in a family-owned mortgage brokerage business)… CONSTRUCTION (1 yr.)… ETHANOL MANUFACTURING (1.5 yrs.)… and for the last two years — I’ve been largely unemployed, other than my work on the project that I will soon be telling you about.
EDUCATION: I graduated high school in 1981 (with a 3.2 gpa — General Studies and some College Prep Coursework)… Since 1983 (29 yrs.) I have engaged in an intense ongoing, personal self-study of ”All Things Business-Related” (wherein I’ve developed my mastery level knowlegde of Business Management, Business Planning, Business Development, Strategic Management and Development, Marketing, Public Relations, Brand Management and Development, Product Development, Intellectual Property Rights (Patents, Trademarks, and Copyright Law), Business Law, Accounting, Finance, etc.) … in 1989-1990, I attended community college on a part-time basis while working to support my family, but dropped out after 2 semesters to start my first side-line business (because I needed to be making more money to support my family, and wasn’t learning anything I didn’t already know, or couldn’t learn on my own, as I had been doing for 7 years up to that point)
Throughout my career (for the last 28 yrs.) I have additionally worked on the development of large scale business plans and product development projects, in addition to my jobs working for other employers.
SPECIAL ABILITIES: Logical Problem Solving… Creative Projects and Creative Thinking… System Optimization/Efficiency Expert (possess an advanced capacity for assessing systems and making them work with ”maximum efficiency”)… Market Opportunity Identification (possess an advanced capacity for identifying and assessing market needs and solutions for serving them)… Business Planning and Development… Product Development… Concept Development… Conceptual Web Development… Technical Writing… Copywriting… and more.
INTERESTS: Business Develpment and Product Development… Economics… Spirtuality (consider myself “enlightened” and have no fear of death)… Science (quantum physics, metaphysics, space science & exploration, “the Universe”, the paranormal)… Philosophy (life, law, governement)… History… National Security (military, diplomacy, world economic development)… Military (general interest and history)… Politics (non-aligned centrist/constitutionalist… conservative on fiscal issues, liberal on social issues)… Art… Music (rock and roll, heavy metal, 60′s british invasion, and all other forms of music)… Media (magazines and online media)… Movies & Film (especially horror movies, zombie movies, science fiction & fantasy, war movies, and comedies)… The “Nature of Odds” (I like to work on casino gambling strategies, although I’m not a gambler per se’ — I don’t even play the lottery. — but I do enjoy the challenge of trying to devise betting strategies capable of consistently overcoming the house’s edge)… Current Events… Doing my part, and whatever I can possibly do, to make the world a better place for everyone.
HOBBIES: Business Development… Professional Networking… Musician (singing/guitar/bass guitar/song writing)… Book Collecting (95% non-fiction – many college textbooks)… Blogging and Writing… Family and Friends… Motorcycling (HARLEY-DAVIDSON RULES! — Unfortunately I had to sell my bike — But I do plan on getting another one at the first available opportunity )
CURRENT EMPLOYMENT: Am the Founder, CEO, and Director of Development for MAG-NET MEDIA HUB, LTD and Brown Developmental. — However it should be known that MAG-NET MEDIA HUB, LTD is in pre-seed startup (which means it has no money, no revenues, and no funding at present) and while I seek to additionally provide my professional services as a consultant, public speaker, and service provider through Brown Developmental… I have not yet had ANY clients employ my services as of this time (primarily because I haven’t really had any money to market them — or at least I hope this is the reason.) — With these things said: While I’ve got some pretty grand titles, as well as some aspirations, and projects I’m working to develop… my official status is: UNEMPLOYED and WITHOUT INCOME.
Okay — so now you’ve got a good idea about my background, who I am, and how I generally think. What it doesn’t tell you, however, is what I’m currently working on right now. Read on, and all will soon be revealed.
I’ve been writing my ass off for the past week and a half, trying to get some financial support for my economic development solution, that I’ve been working to bring to market for 8 long years, and have rolled into the The MAG-NET MEDIA HUB and MAG-NET LOCAL — because last week was my last week of unemployment benefits, and now I’ve got no income whatsoever to support my wife and myself, and keep us from ending up out in the street. — So these are the last ditch efforts of a drowning intellectual and self-proclaimed social scientist of the working class — who has been trying to do everything he can to bring the culmination of 8 years of intense economic development research and development to the world, before he has to put that project on INDEFINITE HOLD… and take whatever $10.00 an hour job he can find.
Believe me… it has been no walk in the park, but maybe this was how God intended this solution to be brought to the world. I can only hope. — Because that would mean I will ultimately be successful in this last ditch effort, and that the world, and the American Poor and Working Class — and ultimately, the poor and working classes around the globe — will soon get the “economic deliverence” that everyone needs.
Well anyway — I’ve been writing alot because a I posted some discussions on several of my LinkedIn Groups, in an attempt to try to reach some contacts for governmental agencies, non-profit organizations, angel investors and investor groups, etc. — who would possibly be willing to engage me and assess my research from the past 8 years, as well as my plan, proposed solution, and prototype sites, for the web resource that I believe is capable of delivering to the world —
“A New Economic Engine for a New Economic Age!”
While I’ve made a few possible contacts through those discussions… nothing seems to be happening fast enough. And I am now 4 days into a week of trying to make these connections that I need to make, as part of this last ditch effort— when I more logically should have actually been out beating the bush for whatever job I could possibly find.
So, anyway — amid answering questions on my discussions on LinkedIn, and jumping back and forth between my email account and the discussion boards, to see what new questions and comments might have been posted on each of the boards, I found myself responding to a question on my post on the WHITE HOUSE ECONOMY SUBGROUP (which is a group on LinkedIn, administered by The WHITE HOUSE — (yes, the one in Washington D.C. that President Barack Obama and his family currently reside in)… that I’ve been hopeful would yield some serious activity from a great many highly qualified experts close to the federal government, but that has very much been largely disappointing, to say the least.
— But after I got done posting my response on that discussion, I began looking to see what other discussions might be active in the group, and where my discussion might have then been appearing within the group’s discussion list. — And besides not even seeing my discussion in the Top 20 (which was rather disheartening, to say the least), or even anywhere on the first page… I saw a new post by a guy named Luc… with the discussion title of:
“America Faces a Worldwide Economic Revolution”
“Well, that looks interesting” I thought… “Maybe I can post something to that discussion board that might prove helpful to my cause, and maybe drive some additional traffic to my discussion board.”
So, I logged into the discussion thread and found that no one had yet posted any comments to it. — And that other than the title of the thread — “America Faces a Worldwide Economic Revolution” — there was only a link to a post on the Skeptical Market Observer Blogspot of the same name. (Click Here to access that article) — So, I clicked on it… and read it… gathered my thoughts… and then set about work, adding my comments about the article, to the LinkedIn group discussion.
However… I was on a discussion board on the WHITE HOUSE ECONOMY SUBGROUP! — And by God, I was going to make it count for something!
So, I rolled up my sleeves (well, not really — because I was sitting there wearing a disheveled and “holey” Harley Davidson short-sleeved t-shirt that I had been wearing for two days, and had even slept in, the night before) and began my work.
Before the smoke had cleared, I had filled up THREE comment boxes in succession, with around 12,000 characters in all… and had issued a SHOUT OUT to the Economic Development Community, the WHITE HOUSE, and to PRESIDENT OBAMA.
And here is what I said:
The article you linked to is filled with a host of truisms about the state of our economy, how we arrived here, and what we need to do to fix it.
However, the challenges arrayed before us that must be fixed, are so complex and dependent upon a great many “self-preservationists” in positions of power — who will likely continue to clutch and hold onto that power (and money) so tightly, that they’ll never be willing to “scale back” for the benefit of ALL Americans — that it is highly unlikely that solutions that could ultimately turn America back from the brink of destruction, will ever be implemented in time to do so.
While the article did do a good job of laying out the myriad of problems arrayed against us — like many articles and posts, it didn’t really offer any concrete solutions. And that’s because 99.99999999% of the worlds’ population — including the so-called geniuses in the seats of power — simply DO NOT KNOW HOW the American and World Economies can be saved, without throwing the American Working Class and Poor to the wolves.
You see, the emerging World Economy, as described in the article, is that of a One World Government with many multi-national corporations, financiers, and powerful political leaders, at it’s helm. Now, I know this is beginning to sound like a conspiracy theorist rant, but no — it’s not that at all. You see, I don’t believe that it’s the by-product of any kind of major conspiracy or anything… just the natural development of an under-regulated free market system, developing as it would naturally under the influence of “intense greed” among the self-serving “elitist class”.
The elitist class has merely done what they do best. And that is — leverage their power and money to accumulate and control more power and money, without a second thought about America’s poor and working class. They’ve done what they’ve done with no thought or care about providing jobs and economic stability or viability for the people that they consider being on the front lines of America’s labor force. They have only cared about the money that they could put in their pockets from the American People’s naievete, by plying them with inexpensive products and electronics from Asia — like playboys plying a beautiful girl with cheap champaigne. And the American People fell for it. They’ve surrendered their standards of living and jobs for a few decades of being able to live like kings, with their TV’s in every room… their hot tubs and pools… their expensive cars and boats — virtually everything they could have ever imagined! — But, now what?
What do you do with the American Poor and Working Class, now that they’ve been bled about 60% dry? — When you no longer want to provide them with good paying jobs, because that would mean you having to get up off of some of your hoard? — When you no longer want to provide them with any form of social safety nets, to keep them from starving or living in the streets? — When you no longer give them any other choice but to run wild in the streets, robbing and looting to survive, and calling for revolution and the heads of the “ELITE” on a silver platter. (Remember the French Revolution? — the guillotines ran red with blood for 3 years, as “The People” did away with the “Ruling Elite and Aristocracy”.)
So, what do you do with them? — YOU EMPOWER THEM WITH THE ABILITY TO TRULY CREATE FOR THEMSELVES, THE KINDS OF LIVES THAT THEY WANT FOR THEMSELVES AND THEIR FAMILIES.
I’ve been a student of business and economics for nearly 30 years, and for the last 8 years I’ve been working on the problems of inefficiency within the job search, job creation, business development, and economic development areas of society. — And as crazy and megalomaniacal as it might sound — I’ve created a solution that can make it HUNDREDS OF TIMES EASIER for people to “Find Jobs… Build Careers… and Start and Expand Both New and Existing Businesses” wherever this solution is rolled out.
What needs to be done is that the playing field really needs to be leveled for everyone. Entrepreneurial-Minded People from ALL walks of life, and especially amongst the working class and poor, need to be provided with a better means of disseminating their needs within the marketplace. A means that will enable them to create the kinds of businesses that they want for themselves, that can generate the level of income that will sustain them and their families, and that will provide them with the level of “personal job satisfaction” that they seek.
AUTOMATION IN MANUFACTURING NEEDS TO BE MAXIMIZED!
Here’s a little tidbit of information that many people don’t realize… the majority of the people in the working class and amongst the working poor HATE their jobs! (Hard to imagine, right?)
A study done in 2007 (even before the collapse of the housing bubble) showed that 4 out of 5 factory workers literally HATED their jobs. Which obviously meant that they would have rather been doing something else, right?. — But because the better paying jobs that they were able to acquire in their local communities were factory jobs — they NEEDED to work in manufacturing jobs in order to try to adequately support the needs of themselves and their families.
Well, guess what? The jobs in manufacturing simply aren’t there anymore, and now we’ve got MILLIONS of displaced factory workers struggling to survive as their unemployment benefits have largely run out, and there is absolutely no place for them to turn.
At the same time, the loss of their incomes have affected a multitude of people in other industries and segments of society, and are pushing state, local, and federal governments to their breaking points.
If you want to turn this economy around and to not only keep the world as we know it from going down the tubes, but create a NEW ECONOMY and a NEW SOCIETY that is better… and happier… than any times that may have ever come before — then the solution that I’ve discovered and developed MUST be put in place.
In 2006 (3 years into my research and development project) I was thinking about WHY the solution I had developed could make it HUNDREDS OF TIMES EASIER for people to “Find Jobs… Build Careers… and Start and Expand Both New and Existing Businesses” — and what I learned was that mankind had been utilizing largely the same strategy for “disseminating opportunities”, the same way for 150,000 years! — Since the dawn of commerce in mankind’s history!
However, in the late 1970′s… population growth, technological developments, etc., had brought us to a point where the old paradigm was no longer sufficient for our continued economic growth. — And at that time, a new strategy for managing “opportunity dissemination” in society, not only needed to be put in place before we could advance economically as an intellectual species… but before we could actually attain our next higher economic age, that the development and proliferation of the internet could provide.
(Part 3 and Conclusion)
So, if you really want to know why we’ve been struggling in a continuous succession of rising and falling economic indicators, fueled by the development and bursting of various “bubbles” (the dot.com bubble, the housing bubble, the stock market bubble, etc.) it’s because our society has required an “upgrade” in our “opportunity dissemination infrastructure” (an infrastructure that the scientific community doesn’t even recognize as existing — which should tell you something about the true complexities of economics, and mankind’s level of ignorance in regards to this area of quasi-science) since the late 1970′s.
(Funny that the author of the post at the heart of this discussion said we’d been in need of “economic revolution” for 30 years — he was only 5 years short.)
Take heart in the fact that while we’ve been in need of this infrastructure updgrade for 35 years, and have had the level of technology mastery required to implement it for 15 years (but lacked the knowledge and will to implement it) — the solution to our economic problems are close at hand.
— That is, if I can find someone to help me fund the completion of the required resource, and get it rolled out to towns, cities, and villages across the United States, and then the world. (Hint, Hint )
Yeah, I’m talking to YOU, “WHITE HOUSE” and PRESIDENT OBAMA!
Does anybody up there have their ears on?
— A largely self-educated, working class, college-dropout social scientist, and self-proclaimed expert on business development, economic development, and job creation — from the “sticks” of Northwest Ohio — is out here “BANGIN’” on the White House Doors… trying to get your attention and tell you that I’VE GOT THE SOLUTION TO OUR ECONOMIC PROBLEMS! So, how about taking a little time to hear me out and maybe give me a little help in bringing this new solution to the masses?!?
Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to actually DO something about the problems that we face, rather than simply TALKING about them all of the time?!?
Well, get ahold of me and let’s get this sucker fixed!!!
Thanks Luc, for providing me a platform to say what I needed to say. — Sorry, if I took over your post.
Peace and Best Wishes — Michael
P.S. — If anybody else out there would like to find out more about the solution I’m working to bring to market, and maybe help me find funding for the project, and get it rolled out… please go to my profile page here on LinkedIn… send me an invitation to connect… and get in touch with me. I can use all the help I can get.
Again — Peace and Best Wishes — Michael.
Okay — well that’s it. So, what do you think?
All I know for sure — besides the fact that the economic development solution I’ve developed, truly is everything that I said it was — is that I will be extremely sad if I don’t get some serious consideration for my project, after that post.
Why? — It’s not for the reasons that you might think. — It’s not because I would naturally stand to become super wealthy (a BAZILLIONAIRE even!) from developing and rolling out a resource such as the one described. — But, because of the psychological impact that such a revelation can have on a person.
Imagine… if you had been looking for a job in 2003… and after experiencing — first-hand for the first time in 20 years — the terrible inefficiencies in society’s job search infrastructure… and you had personally experienced a “lightbulb moment” in which you cried out:
“I just wish there was a publication that I could pick up from the corner store, that had ALL of the area’s jobs listed in it! That way I’d never have to worry about missing out on a good job opportunity! I’d be willing to pay $10.00 for a publication like that!”
Well, that’s what happened to me. — But unlike with most people… I am an entrepreneurial-minded guy. — And to me, that was a challenge that I felt I was capable of undertaking… and developing and bringing to market — so I DID take up that challenge!
Then… after 3 years of mostly 18-hour work days… — After developing the 250-page launch plan with 150 pages of appendixes… — And developing the required prototype for the publication and concept that was capable of making it HUNDREDS OF TIMES EASIER for people to “Find Jobs… Build Careers… and Start and Expand Both New and Existing Businesses” wherever those localized publishing operations were rolled out… — And working feverishly to find serious consideration and funding to move the project forward… — After 3 years of that — when that revelation concerning the project came upon me (that I referred to in my LinkedIn post above), and made me believe that the POSSIBILITY EXISTED THAT GOD may have somehow planned for this solution to come to mankind through me! — That perhaps all of the struggles that I had gone through, throughout my entire life up to that point… may have been so that I might be able to learn all of the lessons that I might need to learn, in order to bring this innovation — “A NEW ECONOMIC ENGINE… FOR A NEW ECONOMIC AGE!“ — to the World! — THAT EXPERIENCE placed a great deal of burden on my soul and on my psyche, that I’ve carried with me ever since.
Because how can one give up on a quest that one believes may have been ordained and set upon him, by God?!? — That would be like Noah saying “No, God… I don’t think that I can build this Ark that you want me to build, so I’m just going to quit and go do something else” — How could someone quit a project like that?!? — Before expending their every last energy in trying to bring it to fruition?!?
This is exactly what I’ve faced since 2006. — That has kept driving me onward… — Forcing me to keep this project in the forefront of my mind, and not letting me drop it… or forget about it… or stray very far from a path that could lead to it’s ultimate roll out and success.
In 2007 — when the mortgage industry ultimately collapsed — and the substantial income that my wife had been earning, which had been financing my ability to continue working full-time on the project for 4 long years… collapsed along with it… — And I was forced to take a job as a Site Maintenance Man on a construction site for $12.50 per hour. — When that phase of my quest to bring my economic development solution to mankind… and all viable routes for bringing it to market evaporated before me — could I simply drop the project? No — I couldn’t! Something inside me said “You’ve simply got to figure out another way!”
So, I began working on “The MAG-NET MEDIA HUB“… a website that would make it easier for people to find the official websites of magazines online… — And I did this with the idea that I could launch that website, and make a good deal of money from that business, that I could then use to bring my economic development solution to market.
But, 2 years later — after working a full-time job to support my family, and working every other available minute on the development of the website — while I had largely completed enough work on the MAG-NET MEDIA HUB to actually begin ramping it up in the Spring of 2010 — even after I found myself in the unemployment line once again after 2.5 grueling years of hell — something just kept telling me — “No, it’s not ready yet… Keep working on it… Keep refining it.” — So, I did.
Then 1 year later — in the Spring of 2011 — I was moved to begin work on the localized, geographic-based aspect of the MAG-NET MEDIA HUB, which I later called “MAG-NET LOCAL“. — And in May of 2011, I received the inspiration to roll the economic development solution that I had developed in 2003, into each of the MAG-NET LOCAL HUBSITES, and thus — the “Economic Development Suites” of MAG-NET LOCAL were born!
— And when I ultimately finished with the prototype design… I looked upon the entire MAG-NET MEDIA HUB and MAG-NET LOCAL projects and systems, with the Economic Development Suites added to the mix… and I realized that I had created the PERFECT STRATEGY for delivering the economic development solution to the marketplace, and to mankind!
With all of the things that I’ve relayed to you here — how could I possibly feel anything but sad at the prospect of having to put this project on hold once again, and suffer under who knows how many more years of torment and exhaustion, until I can ultimately bring this solution to market, or die in the process.
No… that’s why NOW is the time to take a stand! NOW is the time to make sure my voice is heard, whatever the cost! And NOW is the time to bring this solution to market, or die trying! — So help me God!
