What was once American's birthright is almost gone. In years past, our citizens believed in free speech. Liberals would say: "I may disagree with what you say, but I will fight for your right to say it". Today, speaking your mind is dangerous. If you deviate from the establishment's narrative, you're branded a heretic, and may find your career canceled.

Its not supposed to be like this. Through a free exchange of idea's, citizens understand each-other better, and can come closer to the truth. The western heritage of free speech and debate should be cherished, not scorned and done away with.

I started 33 Gamma L.L.C. and it's flagship platform Manistee Speaks because I felt it is my duty to push back against the dark forces that are enslaving the minds of my fellow citizens. I want our people to break the mental chains that shackle their thoughts, and engage in critical thinking via logic and debate.

Free speech has been a founding principle of the American Republic. I appeal to you, do not let freedom of speech and of thought wither away and die. Don't blindly accept the "truth" as handed down by some authority figure. Make up your own minds and be free.

I hope you'll join me in this struggle for liberty.
