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 do not make any money from the project. All funding comes out of our own pockets.

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

There are no other classical liberal-leaning publications in South Africa, nor the African continent, as professional and organised as the Rational Standard.

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.
