You're accessing this slice of literary goodness for free because we believe anyone and everyone should be able to access the best in fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and art. And because we don't ask our readers to pay for Guernica, we do—for web hosting, server costs, and the other incidentals necessary to keep Guernica up and running, and, most importantly, open and available to as many people as possible, around the world.
If like us you believe in a widely accessible Guernica, consider supporting the magazine with a tax deductible donation or by subscribing. We'll only be asking for two weeks, three times a year—asking for support from readers like you on your own terms: our all-volunteer staff gives to Guernica out of love, and we extend that friendship to you. If you love Guernica, click to help make sure an ever-growing community can continue to read, react, and participate. Each month, more than 100,000 unique readers visit guernicamag.com—even a small amount, a couple of dollars, from just half of those visitors would sustain us for many, many moons.
This avatar-style animation video was created by our newest author, Jamie Court, and his colleagues at Consumer Watchdog, to draw attention to Google CEO Eric Schmidt’s lack of regard for our online privacy. This video is playing thirty-six times per day, on a jumbotron in Times Square—the most highly-trafficked public square in the nation.
Schmidt is the the guy who said, “If you have something that you don’t want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn’t be doing it in the first place.”
TAKE A PAGE OUT OF JAMIE’S BOOK:The Progressive’s Guide to Raising Hell will teach you how to speak truth to power, and keep the big dogs honest, because they’re not out for you and me. Don’t drink the cool aid, don’t eat the ice cream!
