Today the mass media are controlled by powerholders and corporate oligarchs. And therefore to obtain a true picture of what is going on in the world, readers must turn to the alternative media. Citizens need the knowledge they obtain from the alternative media because, without it, a true democracy cannot function. Among the alternative media, Countercurrents is one of the best and most famous.
Countercurrents fearlessly publishes reports on the true state of the world, on topics ranging from the climate crisis to issues involving the need for social reform and peace between nations, and it does so every single day. However, it will be impossible for Editor Binu Mathew and the Countercurrents collective to continue this heroic work without financial support from readers.
Therefore I urge readers to contribute generously to Countercurrents’ fundraising appeal. They should do so for the sake of democratic government, for the sake of avoiding catastrophic climate change, for the sake of social and political reform, and for the sake of the future.
We give our children loving care, but it makes no sense to do so if we fail to make every effort to create a future in which they and their descendents can survive. Supporting the alternative media, and in particular, Countercurrents, is part of the effort that we need to make to save the future.
