This evening as I watched the unfolding drama of the protests, especially the student protests nationwide, I was triggered into remembering the newsreel footage I watched in school of the student protests that occurred in 1960’s that coincided with one of the greatest, most productive artistic periods in history. I remember the original 1960’s Counterculture: the art, the music, the literature, the poetry and the fashion that was inspired by: the Civil Rights Movement, Feminism, LGBT Rights, Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Assembly and the Anti-War Movement.
As Managing Editor I have decided to cover those topics and we’re going to add some new topics that are in line with the times: Legalization of Marijuana (Canna Culture), Transgender Rights, Paganism (Religious Freedom), Global Warming, the Environment, Renewable Resources , Social Reforms, Globalization … as expressed in all artistic mediums. We are also including Alternative Healing and Alternative Lifestyles as well. Counterculture changed the world back then and we predict that it will again. And just to make sure, we’re going to tell you all about it.
And so to remain on the avant garde of this rebirth, we are looking for a few good writers who have a lot to say about the next wave of counterculture.
