Ire began as an entity to publish physical copies of intellectually stimulating works from various walks of life, ideology, or status, so long as it is embedded in Logos then it is ripe for the picking.
- [(Buzzfeed + Vice) – Anti-Intellectualism] = Ire Publications? : There was a time I was fond of Vice. They used to have some genuinely entertaining content that I could rely on for sedentary pleasure while pretending to work at my desk in my office. But Vice sold out, and has consequently become shit. Buzzfeed is the furthest thing was intellectual, with their pop-corn journalism model of information that no one on this planet ever would need or even want. However, seeing as most fringe content creators publish on Twitter, I think pop-corn isn’t all that bad so long as it is intellectually stimulating or that the reader walks away with something valuable.
- Diverse Content: Instead of a Marxist publication, or Capitalist, Formalist, Futarchist, etc., what I want to do is create an egregore of all of this, from the autistic mind. This means this is not an “alt-right” or “NRx” or “Marxist” blog. It is an encapsulation of the collective consciousness of the fringe ideologues that have been percolating on message boards, their own individual blogs, or more likely, Twitter. Ire wants to unite everyone under one umbrella, and create an alternative-fringe media machine. One that challenges the mediocre, bubble-wrapped bullshit presented by anyone on the mainstream. We’re going to change the status quo.
Authors have a lot of free range on what to write about. Whether it’s a critique of a place you ate, an elaborate scathe of the New York City Subway and how it relates to Calhoun’s Ratse, or your own take on current events, to NRx Ducktales. With adament development and stubborn determination, I feel like I can make this really big, and then we all win. Including the humanities.
We will redefine the status quo.
