Now consider the traditional "systems" of influence are designed around feeding the masses with controlled threads of information, media and influence. The power of the traditional systems are really not based on opinions of the masses rather the formulation of opinions, positions and influence by the few.
The history of developing communications controlled by the few is changing thanks to the emergence of the social web and advanced technological advancements. However as long as the silos exist the true force of collective voices will not reach optimum representations to and as an alternative to traditional "communications systems".
Real shifts will only occur when united relations speak with collective voices on numerous issues that impact our representation.
A Contrast of Representation
In the physical world we have the United Nations trying to influence global policies. In the virtual world we have United Relations influencing policies and practices. In the physical world governments are influence by political parties. In the virtual world we need "parties" representing different areas of influence within the virtual world.
In the physical world we vote on issues affecting our communities, locally, nationally and globally. In the virtual world we need United Relations where we voice our desires, preferences and privileges with one voice.
In the physical world we vote for representatives to fight for our preferences. In the virtual world we will need elected leaders to voice our preferences to physical world institutions, organizations, representatives and markets.
The physical world is influenced by political parties rallying the mass supporters to "vote" on issues of importance. However, there is no organized effort to enable participants in the virtual world to unite and vote on relevant issues of importance.
Could We Unite and Organize?
There are social networks formed by geography, topic and industry. We're all plagued by ongoing invitations to join these disparate networks. There are communities of discussions about anything and everything from 6 million Yahoo Groups to 60 million blogs. We have everyone "twittering" about anything and everything but with a lack of common threads of influence. A day doesn't go by without someone somewhere announcing yet another "tool" aimed at converging our conversations. Even with all these new tools and initiatives we lack organization and representation until now.
Link to United Relations
Link to United Relations is aimed at uniting people with a collective voice to influence markets throughout the virtual world. Link to United Relations is a non profit organization with subgroups representing critical issues requiring improvement for the virtual world to operate efficiently, effectively and with representation.
Link to United Relations will compromise "parties" representing issues that influence users that are facilitating changes within the physical world by using virtual world tools and relations collectively. However "parties" represented within the virtual world will be different than those represented in the physical world. Virtual world parties are centric to advancement of issues that enable our collective voices to truly be represented on issues of meaning to both worlds.
These virtual world "parties" will include"
- Media Party
- Advertising Party
- Open Social Party

- Green Party
- Broadcast Party

These collective efforts will need leaders that take the "voice of users" to physical world leaders, companies and institutions. The organization will need leaders with a vision, integrity and character to truly represent the desires, preferences and privileges of the masses.
Each "party" will also need leaders to collect and represent the issues voted on my the masses as required to meet "representative improvements within the virtual world.
