“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” —Margaret Mead
The fact that you’ve arrived at this site identifies you as one of this small but amazingly powerful group. You’re not one to shrink from a challenge. In fact, you embrace challenges, because, in spite of any anxiety you might feel about them, you recognize that opportunity is inherent in them. You are also innately curious; therefore, you are continually learning, constantly exposing yourself to ever more ideas and voices. Even—and perhaps especially—dissenting voices. You relentlessly question and challenge the official narratives and the corrupt powerbases that sustain them. In short, you have a voice, and you’re not afraid to use it.
Equally important, you insist on your right to be heard. “Freedom of expression and freedom of speech,” wrote Tom Smothers, “aren’t really important unless they’re heard. The freedom of hearing is as important as the freedom of speaking.”
This site is dedicated to all the world’s dissenting voices. To amplifying them. To defending them. Even when we don’t agree with them. Whenever and wherever such voices are raised in the service of freedom, human flourishing, and to banishing fear and ignorance, we will not abide their silencing.
