“When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.” — Hunter S. Thompson

Inarguablely, we live in weird times. So: welcome to The Weird Turn Pro.

The Weird Turn Pro brings you a political view that’s not only outside the partisan Democrat vs. Republican model, but doesn’t necessarily stand with the Greens or the Libertarians either. We’re critical of both MAGA and woke “cancel culture”, of both inherently contradictory “libertarian capitalism” and centrally-planned socialist utopias.

We find inspiration in Thornley’s Zenarchy, Thoreau’s “Civil Disobedience”, and Paine’s Agrarian Justice.
