There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.
If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.
| Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.|
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with !
I consider myself a center-left social democrat, and am a strong supporter of Bernie Sanders and the Justice Democrats.
In accordance with this stance, in terms of public policy, I support:
Medicare for All.
Tuition free post secondary education.
Paid family and medical leave.
Cutting back the military-industrial complex.
Full legalization of marijuana.
A full employment economy.
Abolition of capital punishment.
A net worth/wealth tax of 2% on all accumulated wealth above the $2 million mark ( a la Elizabeth Warren, though my proposal is actually much more radical than hers).
A value added tax of 10%, because I believe that the people who receive the greatest direct benefit from a more generous welfare state also need to have skin in the game, so to speak.
The Green New Deal, in principle, although I believe the deadline(s) are wildly unrealistic.
In terms of electoral reform, I support:
Full public financing of elections.
Automatic voter registration at the age of 18.
Ranked choice voting.
