(NaturalNews) A wide-ranging popular revolt is taking place against established corporate media, and Natural News is enjoying a growing popularity spike because it is increasingly known as the "anti-establishment" alternative news source for America.
As the editor of Natural News, I want to personally welcome all the new fans and readers who have joined us over the past week or so. Our email subscription list has exploded with over 12,000 new subscribers, and our social media traffic is through the roof. Why is this happening?
First off, if you're new to Natural News, we are one of the few remaining truly independent news publishers in the world. Almost by definition, that makes us an "anti-establishment publisher" that tends to counter the corporate-sponsored news being published everywhere else.
We're also extremely fortunate to already have millions of amazing fans and supporters who have become a global force of truth and activism by sharing Natural News stories on social media and spreading the word. Our fans are simply the most extraordinary, compassionate, well-informed and mission-driven people in the world. They are the innovators of society, the critical thinkers, the pioneers, the non-conformists and the visionaries. It is people like this who MAKE history rather than watching it pass them by.
THANK YOU to all our amazing fans and supporters who have helped catapult Natural News into the national spotlight!
Here at Natural News, we question everything, and our views don't fit into any political party, religion or cultural movement. People are excited about Natural News because we don't settle for corporate press releases and "official stories." We are a fast-growing community of hundreds of writers who write news, blogs, opinion pieces and more, reaching millions of readers every month with a fresh, informed view of the world.
When the establishment media demands "Obedience!" on a given topic, we take that as a challenge to dig deeper and find out what's so important about the story that the mainstream media is trying to cover up.
Most importantly, we don't try to spoon feed you the same corporate news gruel put out by the corporate-run media outlets that keep telling you the same false stories over and over again. Any time you see a website publisher, magazine, newspaper or news network feeding you corporate propaganda, you know they have zero credibility:
Here are some of the lies you'll hear over and over again in the corporate-run institutionalized media:
Lie #1) Pesticides, herbicides and other synthetic chemicals are totally harmless, and people who are concerned about them are bad people who hate science.
Lie #2) The NSA isn't spying on you, and anyone who thinks the government is involved in surveillance of its own citizens is obviously a conspiracy theorist.
Lie #3) We should all support GMOs and seed patents because it will be really awesome when just three powerful mega-corporations own the patents on all the food crops of the world. Gee, how could that go wrong?
Lie #4) Big Pharma is your friend and antidepressant drugs definitely have no link whatsoever to suicides or school shootings. Here, have another prescription! (Every mainstream newspaper and magazine in the world.)
Lie #5) No, your money isn't being stolen by monetary debasement planned and carried out by the Federal Reserve. The only reason the dollars you earn keep buying less and less every year is because of "natural inflation," not the erosion of the money supply caused by runaway money creation.
Lie #6) From the realm of science, remember that you are not a conscious being and you have no free will. Silly ideas of "consciousness" are nothing more than remnants of your chemical brain, tricking you into thinking you're "aware." Thus, your life is totally meaningless and there is nothing after life, which is all the more reason you should just go along with whatever the media tells you and stop trying to think for yourself.
Natural News is for active thinkers, not passive consumers
Here at Natural News, we challenge you to think for yourself. While the establishment media prefers to broadcast its message to intellectual zombies, our primary goal is to encourage independent thinking, enhanced awareness of reality and a vastly expanded view of what's really happening in the world (behind all the theater played out for you on CNN).
Sometimes, our stories will make you laugh. Other times, they might make you angry. They will absolutely, 100% for sure challenge your beliefs on everything from politics and global warming to philosophy, spirituality and the meaning of life.
And all along the way, Natural News helps keep you prepared with practical knowledge on preparedness, self-preservation, sustainable living, home food production, financial preparedness and other similar topics.
Natural News is a pro-environment, pro-liberty, pro-consciousness, pro-human rights publisher that millions of people see as a fresh new voice; a beacon of light in the murky gloom painted by traditional corporate media. Sometimes our stories seem pessimistic about the world, but we are ultimately hard-core optimists because we believe in the sanctity of life and the courage of the human spirit to overcome oppression and censorship.
At the same time, we also recognize that almost every institution in society today -- government, media, universities and the internet -- has been heavily infiltrated and largely overtaken by corporate interests. The "one percent" rule the information pathways of the world, and it's rare to find a site like Natural News that speaks the truth for the 99%. (Many previously "independent" or "alternative" news websites received cash injections from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, then suddenly they became cheerleaders for GMOs and vaccines.)
How the establishment media is unwittingly causing Natural News to rapidly expand its audience
The best part about being a truth-telling website is that every effort made by establishment media to bring us down only brings us more readers and subscribers. People are hungry for a voice of truth in a world dominated by establishment voices of falsehoods and lies. Does anyone believe anything coming out of Washington anymore? Does anyone believe those teleprompter-reading news reporters are bringing you only the most relevant and factual stories that you really need to know? Does anyone believe so-called "alternative" news websites that promote the interests of biotech companies and vaccine manufacturers?
Of course not. Establishment news is almost entirely staged to promote corporate interests: war, chemicals, consumption, disease, addiction and debt. The system that runs our world is set up to keep you enslaved financially, cognitively and of course medically. You are never supposed to question the status quo nor realize you can change the course of this world by standing up and claiming your rightful voice.
The establishment views you as a "useless eater," not a divine being with a unique mind
You, like everyone else, are supposed to function as what the global puppet masters call a "useless eater." You're supposed to work a job, pay taxes, take home a paycheck, spend it on processed toxic food, buy health insurance, get diagnosed with cancer, pay the cancer clinics, take the patented drugs, live in a high-rent apartment, watch the contrived evening news, lose money in the stock market, then have 1.7 children so that the same scam can be perpetuated to the next generation.
All this time, you are supposed to agree with the status quo and not question anything. If you dare question any "official explanation" of anything, you will be promptly whipped back into line with accusations of being a "conspiracy theorist" or an "anti-government kook" when, in reality, you're just an intelligent person who thinks for yourself. This is how the system works: non-conformity is harshly and quickly punished in order to demand conformity and obedience.
But here at Natural News, we encourage non-conformity from all walks of life. We welcome the hippies, the vegans, the patriots, the raw dairy farmers, the counter-culture scientists, the alternative cancer clinic doctors, the home birthers, the 9/11 truthers, the pioneers, the innovators and the transcendentally inspired. We reach an ever-expanding community of people who realize, "Hey! I'm unique! I don't have to think like everyone else!"
That's why, as the editor of Natural News, I'm a rap artist and a musician, a laboratory scientist, an investigative journalist, a comedy skit writer, a combat handgun practitioner, a rancher and much more. I explore multiple realms of knowledge and adventure in the same way that our millions of readers do! We all crave expanded knowledge, learning, wisdom and understanding, and we want to have some fun along the journey, too. Life is too short to live it as a mindless consumer in a contrived, corporate-run society.
Stories designed to awaken your mind and your spirit
So get ready for Natural News to rock your world. I can tell you up front that you won't like every story we publish. Some you will love and others you might disagree with. But every story is designed to awaken your mind and prod you to ask real questions about what's going on in the world around you.
Why are raw milk farmers raided at gunpoint? Why is it still illegal to grow industrial hemp in the USA? Why do local police departments across the USA now own armored assault vehicles previously used for war? Why are food corporations fighting so desperately to make sure bio-engineered ingredients are never labeled on food products? Why don't national media reporters ask real journalism questions at White House press conferences? How are we supposed to survive as a civilization when all the water aquifers are running dry? Why did the mainstream media refuse to report the truth about the nuclear meltdown at Fukushima in 2011? Why are all the marine animals along the Pacific Coast suddenly dying off? Why is there still mercury in flu shots given to children? Why does Google aggressively suppress pharmacy ads that would offer affordable generic medications sold by licensed Canadian pharmacies? Why does Amazon.com refuse to carry nutritional products that help remove toxic heavy metals from the body?
These are questions you will rarely see asked in the establishment media. But here at Natural News, we ask these kind of questions every day. And in doing so, we keep attracting more and more readers who share our desire to ask real questions and not settle for the status quo.
Ultimately, you see, we believe humanity is being held back. We believe that there's more for us all -- more abundance, more health, more longevity, more happiness and more purpose -- but corporate interests are holding us all back, and they use the mainstream media to help accomplish that by infusing the masses with a message of hopelessness and obedience. That's the perfect recipe for creating a subservient society, which is probably why in 2014, we have almost slipped entirely into the society of 1984.
We deserve better than the status quo, I say! We deserve to fully experience our human potential, our consciousness, our empathy and compassion, our ingenuity and our love for the world around us. That's what Natural News seeks to deliver every day: a message grounded in the realization that we don't have to settle for the status quo because humanity deserves a brighter, better future.
