World War 4 Report becomes CounterVortex

World War 4 Report, the news service and digest we founded in the aftermath of 9-11, is being incorporated into a new domain: CounterVortex. We take this move in light of our expanding areas of coverage (beyond our original mandate of the Global War on Terrorism), and to emphasize positive alternatives to the consolidating dystopia. The planet is spiraling into a vortex of ecological collapse, permanent war, and totalitarianism—whether of the techo-security state or the religious and ethnic fundamentalisms that ostensibly oppose it. Through our resistance, we create a counter-vortex, generating movement toward sustainability, peace, and popular democracy.

While we advance a ruthless criticism of all existing reality, this is not an invitation to mere nihilism: in negating the leviathan that is itself negating human freedom and autonomy, we utlimately seek a negation of the negation.

This is something of a reboot, and we call upon our readers to help spread the word of our existence. We must also emphasize that this project still fails to break even, and we must call upon all who appreciate our work to support us with whatever you can.

  1. Please support CounterVortex!

    If you support our reboot, please give us some encouragement. We receive no foundation funding. We depend on our readers to sustain our daily, ongoing work. If you are reading this, that means you.

    We currently have three monthly subscribers on Paypal—in the Bronx, NY; in Montreal, Quebec; and in Missoula, Mont. Will you be our next?

    We've also received two one-time donations this month—from readers in New York, NY; and Norfolk, Va. If you don't want to make the commitment of being a monthly subscriber, you can help us out this way.

    The minimum donation of $10 is considerably less than what you would spend if you bought a daily newspaper every day. Some of you may be old enough to remember this.

    Even if you don't always agree with us, we hope you recognize the value of our work and ultra-dissident voice, and will do your small part to help keep it alive.

    Remember: We are 100% reader-supported!

    Thank you!

  3. CounterVortex reviewed by Warlock Asylum

    Warlock Asylum International News gives CounterVortex a five-star rating:  "Weinberg has made it his responsibility to take on the often ignored perspectives that seem to seep through the cracks of mainstream media news reporting… [V]ery few writers can hold a candle to Bill Weinberg when it comes to critical journalism… On a scale of 1 to 5, I'm giving CounterVortex five stars."

    Well, thank you, Warlock Asylum!

    1. Warlock Asylum names Bill Weinberg ‘Best News Journalist’

      Warlock Asylum has named Yours Truly "Best News Journalist" of 2017, as well as "Activist of the Year." Now, the year  is yet young, so I hope to live up to this honor. But dollars-to-hours, Warlock Asylum is probably right about the "hardest working journalist in New York City" part.
