Many of you have demonstrated your support for my work with your generous contributions. Clearly I am writing for a concerned and aware citizenry. I very much appreciate your support. I have nothing else to request from donors who faithfully support this site. I do ask that others join them.
I promote and practice an economy based on gifts. Humans exchanged gifts for nearly three million years before bartering and exchanging currency. I speak and write for no charge, although I accept gifts of fiat currency here. To donate, click on the blue heart instead of using the “Gift” button. Alternatively, you can donate via PayPal simply by using the subscription button below or by using my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
My goal is donors who are sufficiently generous to provide an monthly income of $2,000. This modest base will allow me to continue my work while simultaneously reducing the financial burden on my hosts. Thus far, 38 donors are contributing a total of $380 monthly. These figures are updated as they change.
I’m wide open to non-monetary donations, too, subject only to your creativity. For example, I would appreciate your generosity with respect to frequent-flyer miles.
Please bear in mind that I do not charge for any of my work. Also, please read all the way to the bottom of this page.
This request for donations has produced the expected, negative response from several people who disparage me and my work. As usual, they appear to fit the customary demographic: relatively wealthy, Caucasian men who love industrial civilization and the privilege it brings them.
