Welcome to The Mighty Pen.
Examine Your Inheritance.
This site is dedicated to the power of the written word to change the world. One of the changes I want to contribute to making in the world is creating a space free from the tyranny of advertising. There is almost no place left where people's consciousness isn't repeatedly raped by advertisers.
In their search for education and information that will improve the quality of their lives, people are being dehumanized, psychologically dissected and subjected to a continual stream of consumer propaganda. All of it is based on the supreme lie that happiness can be bought.
As a result, the majority of writing has been reduced to "content" used as bait to hawk all manner of unnecessary and harmful products. The profound truths once shared by writers, arrived at by keen observation and experience, have been reduced by the marketplace to half-truths or outright lies formulated according to what paying advertisers find acceptable.
I wanted to create one place on the internet that people could go to escape the incessant pressure to buy. That includes buying ideas as well as products. I want "the real world" to mean something other than humanity's acceptance of the current state of affairs.
The standard I want to uphold here is for everything I write on this site to be fearless and uncensored, uncontrolled by a marketplace that claims to be free while it enslaves our minds as well as our bodies.
If you find anything you read here enjoyable or worthy of support, please make a donation for whatever amount you think it was worth. It would also be a bonus if this site helped me be discovered by people seeking writers for creative projects and collaborations. Thank you for visiting my site.
