“Drowned out by consumerism, punditry, and opinionated spin doctors. Separated by distance, language, and lines on maps. Divided by the focus on ones class, creed, ethnicity, or nationality. We have been isolated from one another. Looking to what separates us instead of what joins us. The collective voice of the people has been quelled. Money and power corrupt the world in which we live. Crooked politicians, an influenced media, betray all who trust in them, pocketing profits and treating the people as something to be manipulated. No longer there to represent the people but rather to use the people as a means to their ends.
The ancient Greeks had a place of public assembly where people would gather to trade ideas and discuss current events and politics. This was the agora. We have lost this place in the modern world. . . until now.
The Agora Project.
This project aims to provide what we are currently missing and so badly need. A space where ideas trump names and progress rules over partisanship. A public dialog where problems find solutions and ideals are shaped into actionable plans.
Welcome to the network, a place to connect. A place to do more than commune about how things are not what they should be.This is a place of organization and tactics, of sharing and mobilizing. . Together as a united collective of free thinkers in a global agora to communicate and actualize ideas.
An informed citizenry is the key component to a healthy democratic process. It is something to be feared and respected by all, for all real power lies with the people. Now we connect to create our own agora to circumvent the politics, the power, and the money of a privileged few.
This is The Agora Project. Welcome. Connect. Build. Organize. Communicate. Share. Mobilize.”
