Ad Absolution (and Discord Access)

$2
per month
One of the ways I keep my channel afloat is by running ads before the videos. Nobody likes ads (myself included) so by contributing 2 bucks a month, you can absolve yourself of any guilt for using your adblocker! Everybody wins. You also get access to my Patrons-only Discord server!

Solidarity

$5
per month
By chipping in five bucks a month, you're helping me pay the bills and work towards removing the burden of relying on ads and sponsorships. My dream is to make Second Thought completely ad-free, and your support at this level is a big step towards that goal. You also get access to my Patrons-only Discord server!

Absolute Hero

$10
per month
Seriously, if you can contribute 10 bucks a month to help keep this channel afloat, you're a champion. I have little to offer except my heartfelt gratitude and the promise that if we can get Second Thought to a place where it's entirely fan-supported, every video will contain radical/leftist content.

About Second Thought

Hey there! Thanks for visiting my Patreon page. Second Thought is an educational YouTube channel that's been putting out one video per week since early 2017. In that time I've released nearly 200 videos, and gained a following of some of the loveliest people on the internet.

But now it's time to make some changes. 

On March 28th I posted the only Second Thought video I've ever cared about. It was called Capitalism And The American Pandemic Response, and I knew going into it that it would probably be the most important video I would ever make. I fully expected the video to tank, and that I would lose subscribers, but that didn't happen. In fact, the complete opposite happened. I was blown away by the positive response to this video, which was very gratifying because I poured my soul into it, along with many hours of work. To my amazement, the common refrain in the comments was, "we want more of this." 

So, I've made a decision. I've made a new Patreon in the hope that we can convert Second Thought from a sponsor-dependent general interest channel, to a democratically funded Leftist educational outlet. This only works with your support. I want to keep creating content to help give a voice to opinions you don't hear expressed in the mainstream media or by most politicians. We can make this happen, but I need your help. Thank you for your consideration.
Goals
1,500 - reached! patrons
With 1,500 patrons, my income should be stable enough to safely hire a writer to help create Second Thought scripts. That would give me more time to work on longer-form content like documentaries and deep dives into Leftist topics. Let's get there together!
