Voltaire's Ghost is creating videos

Voltaire famously said that "to hold a pen is to be at war." But on the other hand, he also said that "a witty saying proves nothing," so, I don't know what to believe.

We are living in seismic times, however. There are crazy ideas everywhere and just as many people to spread and defend them. I want to push back. I'm not a politician or a soldier but I can think, provoke, and entertain. 

That being said and truth be told, I make decent money in the 'real world'. Furthermore, it takes a lot of time and effort to produce content of the quality you deserve and that I am proud. So, if you happen to enjoy my videos and consider me a useful voice in the various culture wars being waged, become my boss. Allow me to work for you instead and carry on the struggle. Or, buy that extra cup of coffee each week, whatever. If you can spare the caffeine though, I will be enormously grateful, encouraged, and most of all, committed. 

N.B. My Patreon works on the 'per video' model. This ensures that I only get paid when I deliver content to you. If I'm lazy or blown up by a terrorist, you pay nothing. In addition, regardless of the number of videos I release, I will NEVER take pledges from you more than 3 times in a month.
