Editorial Statement

Media for the People!

News, information, stories, commentary, videos and perceptive views on current events and media issues.

Thank you for reading and sharing Rise Up Times. With a mainstream corporate media that is beholden to powerful financial and political interests that do not have the people at heart, we need to share and discuss information more than ever.

The politics of truth is in the interaction. Factual truth is the bedrock of a free politics. Difference of interpretation and opinion is its process.
—Jeffrey C. Goldfarb, The New School for Social Research

Rise Up Times welcomes dialog and discussion, “difference of interpretation and opinion,” within the editorial guidelines in articles posted and in comments made on posts, but personal attacks and hate speech will be removed.

More quotations that represent the editorial position of Rise Up Times:

Media for the people!

“The people yes. The people will live on. … In the darkness with a great bundle of grief the people march. In the night, and overhead a shovel of stars for keeps, the people march: ‘Where to? what next?’”     —Carl Sandburg

Rise Up Times is concerned about the rise of totalitarianism and fascism and suppression of democracy, particularly in the United States but also across the globe. Free discussion is necessary to democracy.

Resistance is no longer an option, it is now a matter of life or death. The lights are going out on democracy across the globe and the time to wake up from this nightmare is now.
Henry A. Giroux

Rise Up Times posts articles about a variety of issues:

“There is no such thing as a single-issue struggle because we do not live single-issue lives.”
Audre Lorde

  1. Hello Ms. Martinson,

    Let us extend an offer to you and/or your readers to participate in an interview by answering the (4) questions posed to Alfred recently in post: “An Interview Of Alfred Gluecksmann” at The Oneness of Humanity. Future posts will carry the same title: “An Interview Of (Your name here)”.
    ***
    Question 1…) What was your primary motivation for entering the world of blogging on the worldwide web – on the internet?
    ***
    Question 2…) How would you describe yourself with regard to spirituality? What were some of the most memorable transforming points across the years (books, personal contacts, mystical experiences, etc.) in the developing of your current spiritual perspective?
    ***
    Question 3…) What is your greatest wish for readers as a consequence after reading/considering your writings?
    ***
    Question 4…and final) Can you offer any advice to people having a difficult time dealing with government and media lies, especially as it pertains to so many average citizens who hold erroneous perceptions on important events and situations around the Earth?
    ***
    If you (or anyone who passes this way – this proposal is open to all) would like to share your (their) thoughts take as many words and as much time as necessary to accurately convey your responses, then – when completely satisfied – email them (please refrain from email formatting as it makes it more difficult to copy/paste/edit into a WordPress post) to jerryalatalo (at) hotmail.com., whereupon I will publish each individual’s response as a stand-alone post – with the ultimate goal of inclusion/compiling in a book.

    The potential book’s title has yet to become decided upon. There are no rules besides the obvious (no profanity, etc.), no word-count limits (1,000/10,000 words might suffice as a suggested lower/upper limit) or time deadlines (hoping for pre-Christmas 2017 self-publish date – Kindle, Smashwords (eBook), Amazon (softcover/paperback) … ), but only honest observations.

    Thank you and best regards,
    Jerry Alatalo
