When was the last time you read something actually useful or meaningful?

If you turn to print, you are inundated with partisan nonsense. You power up that browser and you are no better off than before: it's the same shtick. You are greeted with sensational headlines that do not answer your concerns as a reader or a citizen.

Or better, you read a potentially interesting article to find that it's either factually inaccurate, poorly written or a disguise for some stupid advertiser wanting you to spend time on its product. 

So what we have going on here are echo chambers for patronage and partisanship, even when the Internet is supposed to be bastion of knowledge and discovery.

The Other is the solution. It's wagering on the belief that there's a group of readers looking for long-form, in-depth, analytical articles on Malaysian politics, culture and current affairs. 

It asks the toughest questions, reports and investigates important issues, and offers independent analyses on current affairs.

Best of all: it's fueled by you the reader. 

That's why we are on Patreon. The platform allows us to be transparent. You donate; we create. It's as simple as that. 

Here's how you can get onboard: a reader can donate whatever they want per month, for us it's a minimum of US$3 or roughly RM13, and the donation is recurring each month after that. 

So anything above that amount every month helps keep the fire burning. To get on board, just click the "Become a Patron" button. 

So keep reading us and thanks for your support. - Emmanuel

Goals
$0 of $300 per month
Smashing this monthly goal will help us pay for: 

Our employee - it's merely a token, but writing, editing and research takes time and energy. 

Illustrations, photos and articles - the more people, the merrier. We've spotted some talent and they don't come cheap. 

Hosting - currently we are on a monthly subscription but we'd like to be able to pay a year's worth of hosting. 

Gear  - the imminent goal is to venture into video and podcasting and livestreaming. These need equipment and to buy equipment, you need money. 

Marketing - email marketing and paid search in the form of Facebook and Google ads.
