About Rational Standard

The Rational Standard has stood as a bulwark against intellectual tyranny in South Africa and Africa more broadly.

We are the only publication that has consistently stood up against vitriolic and violent protest actions by students on our campuses, as well as big government interfering in the lives of honest citizens.

We are committed to:
  • Quality writing and editing.
  • Insightful and thought-provoking articles.
  • Supporting a rational and freedom-based approach to issues.
  • Never charging for access to our articles.
We are run by volunteers who make little to no money from the project. We are run by passion alone.

If we are to maintain our independence and free content, we need funding.

If you care about maintaining all that we have built against collectivism and irrationality, then consider becoming a patron, and contributing towards a freer future and a better state of South African media.
Goals
$55.05 of $100 per month
We can start paying our permanent volunteers some semblance of remuneration on a case by case basis.
