For interested readers, here’s a summary of our blog, The Contrary Perspective, for 2015. We’d especially like to thank our frequent contributors, people like Greg Laxer and Michael Murry, for all of your comments.
We’re really pleased to have reached roughly 200,000 “hits” in 2015. Together we’ve built a community of contrarians who are always challenging us to think more deeply and critically about the leading issues of our day.
A hearty thanks to all of our contributors, visitors, and fans. Your support shows that a democratic spirit and a healthy skepticism of power are still alive and well. And please tell your friends about the site: you are our best “advertising.”
From the Indian subcontinent to Russia and the Scandinavian countries, to Europe and to Australia and to Africa, to South America and to Canada and to all points in between, we wish all of our readers around the globe a happy and healthy new year.
Here’s looking forward to future growth in 2016 — but, even more importantly, to future stimulating debates and discussion in a spirit of contrarian comity — a challenging concept indeed!
Here’s an excerpt:
The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 200,000 times in 2015. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 9 days for that many people to see it.
