About The Contrary Perspective
Neo-liberalism and neo-conservatism and just plain warmongering and conning the people are the common commerce of politics and the media in our country. While the mainstream media has become an echo chamber reverberating with policies and viewpoints advocated by political, military, and economic elites, and the Worldwide Web is overwhelmed with entertainment and commerce, The Contrary Perspective (TCP) is a place where we try to ask the hardest questions about our lives and our leadership.
Our vision at TCP is simple: PROVOCATIVE VIEWS ON POLITICS, SOCIETY, AND THE STATE OF HUMANITY. We seek to chart a new course forward for America.
Although we ask provocative questions, our goal is education, not provocation. How can we really understand the hegemonic policies of the U.S. military or the sheer inanity of the U.S. political process if we are not willing to step back and ask probing questions? TCP is here to help you ask – and answer – those questions. To that end, we encourage active and civil debate.
If you feel strongly about a topic and have a contrary perspective on it, send your draft article to the editor (firstname.lastname@example.org). If accepted, we reserve the right to edit pieces for length and content. We look to provoke thoughtful debate, not our readers’ ire or resentment at perceived abuse or offhand slights of race, gender, nationality, etc.
Help us to build an alternative voice that is truly contrary to the “conventional wisdom” that is leading our civilization so far astray. To readers and thinkers everywhere who like the cut of our jib, welcome aboard!
