In time of crisis, a popular response is to comfort the one in crisis, tell them that everything is going to be alright and not to worry. The purpose of empirical dissent is the opposite of that. We hope to join with the voices of other dissenters, the voice of reason, and the voice of Earth, to provide some of the impetus for the impending crisis. We will not be the voice telling humanity that everything is alright. We will be the ones monkeywrenching the machines of capitalism, patriarchy, and Manifest Destiny. We won't be the ones whispering in your ear that we're sorry everything's falling apart. We will be the ones tearing it down and showing you that there's a more Beautiful way.
We're a motley guild of writers of poetry, prose, parables, and (non-alliterative) essays. We're all anarchists. Some of us are inspired by the ideas of primitivism, communism, pacifism, direct action, revolution, rebellion, and above all, Love.
If you'd like to write for empirical dissent, or if you just want to say hello, please contact us via Facebook or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Whether you'd like to be a regular contributor or just have a one-time contribution, we'd be happy to consider publishing it.
