There’s been much talk this election cycle of voting for things that are not explicitly on the ballot. Trump has said that even if his name isn’t on the ballot, a vote for a Republican is a vote for him. Here’s something else not on the ballot: the Antarctic. And even if it isn’t on the ballot, a vote for anyone that doesn’t take climate change seriously is a vote to destroy the Antarctic. Meanwhile, Thom Yorke graces us with his sonic interpretation of this mesmerizing Antarctic imagery from the Greenpeace ship “Arctic Sunrise”.
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
