After being illegally blacklisted as an international journalist and publishing consultant – after 25 yearsHenry of toiling in key senior editing, writing and/or reporting positions at some of the largest and some of the most respected mainstream daily newspapers across the U.S. and Canada – I set my mind to trying to develop a financially viable digital alternative, an independent and authoritative media entity that would tell the other side of the stories being peddled by the corrupt corporate media.
While I take some pride in my skill with words – in English and French and, to a limited but growing degree, also in Spanish – and with numbers, I might just be the most technically and technologically IL-literate person any of you might ever encounter. So in 2009 I launched www.WRISEUP.COM and began the march up the steep curve to Internet literacy. Begun as a hobby and a vehicle for venting my own frustration at a system that was no longer working for the vast majority, I began to explore a variety of options for the viable monetization of such an entity on an ongoing basis. After developing an editorial archive of more than 700 illustrated essays, performing nine years of beta testing and spending several thousand dollars test-marketing a variety of strategies, we have finally reached the point where we feel we can now offer a credible AND VIABLE alternative – “News FOR the Other99%, BY the Other99%.”
WRISEUP.COM is a very-hard-hitting digital newsmagazine that examines Canadian, U.S. and world affairs – politics; economics; social & cultural affairs; environmental affairs; health & healthcare; labor & the workplace; war & peace; law & order; crime & punishment; freedom, human rights, privacy & government/corporate surveillance; science & technology; etc. – from an anti-corporate, anti-Establishment, anti-status quo, “leftish” but non-partisan perspective. No holds are barred and we recognize NO SACRED COWS.

Has all-out revolution become the only possible solution to the corporate-capitalist sham “democracy” that’s beggaring almost the entire world?

Almost anywhere in the world one looks today there is chaos or near-chaos as the looting of the global aaaaaaaaaaCorrupt Mediaeconomy by the Top1% – aided and abetted by their puppet political prostitutes in almost every corridor of power, by the corrupt corporate-controlled mainstream media,aaaaaaaaaaPublic Schools by the public education systems, and by many organized religions – has savaged the finances of a very large portion of the Other99% – the rank-and-file, frontline workers who actually create ALL wealth. The massive transfer of wealth and of income aaaaaaaaaaDistribution of Wealthfrom the productive majority to the parasitical and predatory Ownership Class over the past 35+ years has been nothing but the most massive unprosecuted swindle in the 500-year history of corporate capitalism.
And the “democratic elections” – especially across North America and the European Union – aaaaaaaaaaSham Democracythat were supposed to be the mechanism through which entire national populations could arrive at an equitable consensus on the distribution of wealth, income and power have now been reduced – almost everywhere – to nothing more than political theater and the most diabolical sham ever perpetrated upon the masses. To put it quite simply, the western world’s sham called “democracy” has now been “captured” by the Ownership Class – or the Top1% – who’ve turned the legislatures across North America and the European Union into their playpens and the “elected” representatives of the people into little more than puppet political prostitutes – the “toys” of the real but un-elected “master class.”
The usurpation of almost all political, social, economic and judicial power by an un-elected, psychopathic and extremely small minority has – in recent decades – reduced the trappings of so-called “democracy” to nothing more than a cynical and duplicitous facade. It has rendered anyone who dares to dissent – even by mere peaceful protestaaaaaaaaaaPeaceful Protest – against the skyjacking of national/global wealth and power instantly susceptible to heinous brutality by militarized police forces, aaaaaaaaaaMilitarized Policecriminal prosecution on trumped-up charges and, oftentimes, even much worse.
