We’re as Mad as Hell, and we’re not going to take this anymore!
-Howard Beale, from the movie “Network” (1975)
The principals here at factsMatter.us are dedicated to the idea that the time is right for a new revolution. That civics and activism are not only our rights as United States citizens, but it’s also our duty as free people to speak out, to educate, to argue against a panoply of misinformation, deceit, chicanery, lies, coercion, low-information thinking, bad ideas, bad execution, and bad faith.
The Left has been too quiet for too long, and have forgotten — or never found — their voice.
factsMatter.us is about bringing Reason to the table. We’re about helping people find their voice, and standing up when others are shouting us down. We’re about using logic, and history, education, and questioning to find the flaws in the arguments of the opposition, and attack those arguments with the same, if not more, fervor that the Right has used against the Left for the better part of 50 years.
In fact, we want to tear down the fear, the lies and follow the Truth, wherever it leads.
It’s time to stop the madness, and replace it with Reason, Responsibility, Logic, and Compassion.
