The Journal of People, Peasants and Workers (JoP) is a privately run personal blog. It is in no way any online newspaper. “Journal” is just for name’s sake.
The Journal posts reports, articles, analyses, views, reviews on / of socio-political, economic and environmental / ecological issues that concern people around the world. Along with analyses, the JoP regularly presents information on significant political, social and economic issues as it believes information is necessary for learners. The Journal has been initiated for non-profit, non-commercial and educational purposes.
Initiated in April, 2015, JoP is maintained by a freelancing editorial panel working off-hours on voluntary basis. The panel maintains a tradition of exclusively scrutinizing every post.
JoP believes informing people on issues pertaining to their lives and the societies they live in is an essential task as the mainstream media or social media platforms attempt to deprive people from information which can make the people question the morality and efficiency of the systems that govern them. An informed people can raise questions vital to their struggle. Consequently a path to scientific analysis opens.
While we acknowledge the influence of slogans, we try not to revolve this platform around rhetoric. We believe that without proper understandings and theoretical work, slogans or rhetoric are rendered hollow. In the fight against capitalism-imperialism, hollow slogans/rhetoric can lead to adventurism, which ultimately do not help people, and create significant obstacles in development of meaningful movements.
In this mission, however, we do not adhere to the policy of other platforms which often bombard their audience daily with a plethora of contents. We believe the audience should be allowed ample time to think through and reflect on the contents presented before them. Therefore, we refrain from posting updates on a daily basis and maintain intervals we deem necessary in-between updates.
JoP by principle upholds progressive, pro-people, pro-labor, anti-imperialist, anti-racist, anti-supremacist philosophies and ideas and vows to present the truth, even if that truth is not covered by or in contradiction to the mainstream media. The execution policy of JoP is minimum expenditure and maximum recycling. JoP plans in future to depend upon contributions from the common people.
- JoP does not yet invite contributions from authors/contributors. The posts in JoP are composed / selected / edited solely by the editorial panel.
- JoP protects its right to edit / publish comments conforming strictly to its founding principles. The editorial panel will refrain from posting comments that may instigate or incite anti-people ideology and propaganda.
- Any suggestion, correction on the published matter in JoP is welcome.
