I get up in the morning a bit dazed and automatically yearning to be facedown in my pillow. "DNA" by Kendrick Lamar blasts seemingly louder as I think to myself how horrible I am for ruining a song I used to like by making it my alarm tone. As I head out the door and on the way to work I take a pause to check the news and of course there's the endless noise of those who become neurotic over Donald Trump and those who have developed a sort of "Stockholm syndrome" in supporting him. This noise is loud and never ceases, much louder than my 7 am alarm clock. Enough with the euphemisms and small talk, let's cut to the facts.
We live in one of the most polarized political, cultural and social climates ever in human history besides the Roman Empire. The media understandably yet sadly have taken sides, we no longer have unbiased reporting but selective journalism that tailors to their donors, supporters and the need to draw in viewers. Then there's the rest of the world who is left looking for the truth. People like you and me who just want their opinions known on any and all topics. That's where Free Mind Media comes in, to stop the culture police from telling you how to think, what to say and how to feel.
Here at FMM we will provide unapologetic reporting from the lens of the tried and true phrase "to each his own." Any stances are welcomed but will always be subject to debate as we look to use this platform to spark healthy conversation in a largely censored and unhealthy world. No you will not find safe spaces and ideological silence but instead I think you will find that your mind will open to things you were not previously open to before. We hope at the very least you learn something new!
Currently we have two on staff with numerous contributors lined up. Feel free to always use our contact page to let us know if you'd like to submit or just discuss about a post etc. It's imperative that we as a people are no longer silenced or manipulated. To quote Christopher Hitchens "Take the risk of thinking for yourself."
Thank you and welcome to FMM
