The Abs-Tract Organization is a multi-purpose umbrella organization comprised of a metanoetic network, mystery school, cinematic universe, metamodern think tank, and more, specializing in all things abstraction. 

As an umbrella organization we sponsor other activities. Support us so we can support more. Currently, we are only a patron of:
  • The Michael Brooks Show

Think tank details available at abs-tract.org.

ABOUT THE FOUNDER(S)
Brent Cooper is the Founder and Executive Director of The Abs-Tract Organization. His primary training is as a political sociologist, focusing on knowledge-power dynamics and elite-mass relations. He holds a B.A. in International Relations from UBC, where he won the Mack Eastman United Nations Essay Prize and received a Graduating Student Leader Award. He subsequently earned an MSc. in Political Sociology from the London School of Economics, where he crystallized a critical worldview, and wrote a dissertation on The Zeitgeist Movement. His varied work experience includes studying renewable energy markets at the National Research Council (Canada), internships at the Simons Centre for Disarmament and the Canadian International Council, Perspectiva (UK), film work, and self-employment. His time is spent mostly on research projects for The Abs-Tract Organization.

Goals
9 of 100 patrons
When we reach 100 patrons, The Abs-Tract Organization can level up. which includes running and expanding the organization, a lot of research and writing, planning and logistics, social media, outreach, communications, volunteer coordination, video production, podcasts, and more...

With 100 patrons can do a lot more and be more consistent. I can produce roughly 1 well researched article per week, while dedicating the rest of my time to basic operations, carrying out the business plan, and developing new tools and strategies.

This is the minimum goal to get started. Other Patreon producers with similar projects are making a lot of money, and we only need a fraction of this to get started.
Matt Bruenig (People's Policy Project) - $8k+/mo
Jordan Peterson - $70k+/mo
Chapo Trap House - $70k+/mo

Once this goal is met, I will be able to add more goals for specific projects to ensure a reliable workflow and productivity.

For example, such additional goals could include:
$500/ mo to hire virtual assistants
$500/ mo on enterprise software packages, fees.
$500/mo to keep producing the Chilluminati Chat Double Plus ++ Podcast once a month.
$1000/ mo to produce a monthly educational or news video.
