About Us


Welcome to the Free Thought Project — a hub for Free Thinking conversations about the promotion of liberty and the daunting task of government accountability.


It is the mission of the Free Thought Project to foster the creation and expansion of liberty minded solutions to modern day tyrannical oppression. We feel that the internet has given way to a revolution of consciousness by providing for the massive and instantaneous exchange of information across the globe.

The Free Thought Project feels that the internet is a place that can either ruin or expand the minds of individuals and that choice is up to you. Hateful and obstinate ideologies cloud the web and often the minds of those who can’t see through them. We want to change this paradigm by providing a beacon of truth amongst all the lies.

The Free Thought Project is a place for people to come together, who don’t necessarily agree on all topics, but who want to see a brighter, freer, and more sustainable future for humanity.

The Free Thought Project is dedicated to holding those who claim authority over our lives accountable.

As John Dalberg-Acton famously stated:

“Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men.”

This tendency of power corrupting can be seen from the local postal worker all the way to the President, and in other countries across the planet. Those of us at the Free Thought Project have dedicated our lives to shining light into the darkness of these corrupt entities as we believe sunlight to be the best disinfectant. We do this to help foster a more peaceful world for our children and the children of generations to come.

We value our readers and will frequently and peacefully interact with visitors to this page. If you are new to our site, a good starting point can be found at this link:http://thefreethoughtproject.com/category/solutions/

All too often, the naysayers in the peanut gallery will tend only to point out the negative aspects of a problem and never provide a working solution. Well, the Free Thought Project feels different, which is why we’ve compiled a database of articles with potential solutions to humanity’s vast array of problems.

This list is by no means comprehensive, and we always value input from our readers. Please feel free to contact us via email at [email protected] or our Facebook page.

All topics are open for discussion, we simply ask that you keep the conversations as cordial as possible. We believe hate and vitriol only add to the already overwhelming amount of negativity in this world. If you want to see a more peaceful world, this peace starts with you.

The Free Thought Project was founded in 2013 by Jason Bassler and Matt Agorist. Bassler and Agorist have been activists for more than a decade and have been working in the alternative media for several years. The rest of our team consists of highly experienced journalists and content creators from all different backgrounds and our family spreads from California to New York.

We have been featured on many mainstream networks around the world. However, this does not mean we are funded, or otherwise supported by any of these behemoths. Up until recently, the Free Thought Project was supported by ad revenue alone. However, we’ve recently launched an ad-free version of the site that is member supported. 

  • Dan Boersma

    The amounts found were in the parts per TRILLION to parts per BILLION levels. In other words, extremely small. To be worried about minute amounts of an herbicide that 1 of 4 WHO organizations has declared a probable carcinogen, while ignoring the alcohol classified as a known carcinogen and is at levels thousands of times higher, seems illogical at best.

    In addition, this at article is biased and highly inaccurate. I associate “free thought” with healthy skepticism and rigorous fact checking. Shame the author does not feel the same

  • Stacy Mize

    I am disappointed that “Free Thought” is so filled with bias. Consider writing with facts instead of just finger pointing, and name calling. We are capable of creating our own bias, we don’t need it spoon fed to us with large helpings of propaganda.

  • CJ Knecht

    This site sounds like another reactionary attempt at doing absolutely nothing other than patting each other on the back, posting videos, quotes from other people, and supporting instant background checks which serve absolutely no purpose other than to continue a cycle of oppression for any number of individuals. In short, you are no different than the police.

    • Chihuahuatude

      Cycle of oppression? SMH.

  • Martee Hays

    Once again a site that tells you NOTHING about who’s behind it. “About us” doesn’t mention who founded the website, who is controlling the website, who is financing the website. Legitimate no agenda websites such as Politifact.com, FactCheck.org, Snopes.com and many others are not afraid to let you know who’s behind them. The poll itself doesn’t mention how many people were polled, how they were chosen or what questions were asked. This is not a poll or website with any credibility whatsoever.

    • Spudslee

      There is no validation of the articles or videos posted. If we believe everything we see on the internet without ensuring the info is factual, true or correct then we truly need to look deep into our hearts and souls.

    • Martee –

      You are rightly suspicious about this website. Personally, I think it to be another government or leftist George Soros funded-type, site. It’s propaganda laden. Mixes reality with deception, etc. An example is the video of the mother supposedly being beaten by cops. If I wanted to see fakery I can go to YouTube and watch some 60’s big-time wrestling.

    • JT

      I am the owner of the website asheepnomore.net and Facebook A Sheep No More with almost 250,000 subscribers. I am a 52 year old mom ….and Ive personally vetted the fine young men behind the scenes of this project of sharing the truth. I know who the actual owner is and the other fine ‘younger than me’ Americans who write for this website. They are not the “indoctrinated” norm of drones that have become the majority now. They believe in the nonaggression principle, and are so very talented, intelligent and will not be morally corrupted.

      Since I am in the alternative media myself, it would only be natural that we know of one another. I also vet theantimedi,org website and social media for I was actually working with that said owner so I do know what kind of character he possesses and if it was not one based upon true morality, I wouldn’t waste my time with commenting her.. I’m not going to give out their names because I do not know if they want to to known. I personally get called a dude all the time because unlike some alternative media who use their actual names etc, I don’t want that type of exposure. And in truth, I do command a tiny bit more respect by being a so-called dude …and because I incarnated into a female body, I am aware of the feminist movement that has the CIA all over it …a means to get the desired division of the divine sexes. Facebook stats show the 24-34 male audience is the largest for my page. If someone finds out I’m the owner of that website …they can always friend me on my personal page, but because this can be very burdensome with knowing people are counting on you for the truth about what’s going on, I really don’t want 250,000 subscribers to my social media to know who I am. It really is a burden to feel this duty to get non mainstream media out there to the pubic. Websites like this will never be on TV …as you know the media is controlled by 6 monolithic corporations.

      I am glad that you’re questioning every website that claims to promote liberty and not the slave state we’re currently existing in. I KNOW this owner and the other one I mentioned do not support a police state thats almost completed itself in America. Just one more false flag of large and multiple proportion could set off the wanted dialectic.

      My name is Julie Telgenhoff as I again, personally VET these fine young men and women for their great creative talents and good work they are doing to share information that the controlled corporate media cannot. But again, glad you’re questioning. And with every type of media …there will always be a little, what you might call, bias. These talented individuals are not statists. They don’t feel that they need a nanny state to take care of them so yes, there will be a bias there as others willingly give their power over to being a slave …because those affiliated with both publications I mentioned do not need an oppressive governmental regime to “build the roads” for them. They will unite as one and do that for one another just to not have to endure this failed system of control and oppression operating under fake democracy and freedom.

      Wishing you peace and kindness.

      • Sean Uhl

        you speak well for these people and you use certain phrases that might make someone confide in your word but I agree with the skeptics…the thing that brought me to this sight was someone else whose posts I seen, making claims to things that I do not doubt happen occasionally but are not to the extreme magnitude that he is portraying

    • Linda

      Exactly my thoughts when I saw this site being put on someone’s Facebook page. Really, Americans have lost their skepticism about things on the internet and certainly have given up critical thinking in order to sing in their chosen choir. If they are honest disseminators of information they should not be afraid to say who they are. A bit like a sensational book without an author.

  • jymetcalf

    This is a satirical site, right?

  • Angry Canuck

    While not perhaps as angry as some others posting here, I have to admit your “about us” page really doesn’t reveal anything. You could be funded by the Koch brothers for all we know.

    Who are you? Who funds you? Whom do you represent? What’s your bias, because yes, EVERY organization has a bias, but only honest ones openly admit it.

    Admittedly, I’d probably accept a statement about “we won’t tell you who funds us, we’d rather you judge us through our content”. Pre-judging is a problem, especially in the American press. But dissecting content for propaganda is hard bloody work, I’d rather you just came out and said it out loud.

    Be different, be honest. And stop calling me the peanut gallery.

  • Anon

    I’ve been banned from commenting on the facebook page because I offered a rational different opinion. “free thought project” what a joke!

  • Mason Gilbert

    Bullshit. You’re just Jewish propagandists. Any mention of “freedom” and “free thought” by you is totally phony, manipulative, and annoying. I have seen The Tyrant and it is YOU.

    • Ann Johnson

      Gilbert is a surname of Germanic origin. Maybe why you seem to be anti-Semitic?? Assumptions…….much eh?

      • Mason Gilbert

        You mean your appeal to assumption that you’re “not Jewish” because of that dime store surname? ha ha ha ha… Please. If I had a dollar for every Jew on earth who wears an impeccable “aye magoy” disguise, cultivated by their families for GENERATIONS, I’d be the richest person I know.

        • tracey marie

          more hate.

          • Mason Gilbert

            Naw, hun, it’s EMPIRICISM. Just cuz you’re
            1) totally oblivious to the sound logic behind it, and
            2) it offends your (totally brainwashed, cowardly) taste
            does not make it “hate.”
            Dropping that word is just a cheap trick for shutting down the subject.

          • tracey marie

            bigotry, racism, misogyny and anti-semitism is ignorance. I can see this site is filled with pubescent children who think this online filth makes them anarchist and cool…it does not, just makes you look foolish.

    • Pavels

      Not really. They seem to be the real deal. Checked them out in my numerology calculator and the’re clean. Whereas ‘AlexJones’ reads ’33’ which is the degree of Free Mason that he actually is. Kapice and Shalom to you!

    • tracey marie

      Now we have bigotry.

      • Mason Gilbert

        Well, that’s FREE THOUGHT for you.
        Or does “free thought” have to have your Stalinist PC stamp of approval?
        Wow, you PC / “liberal” types and your spiritual puppet-masters, the “Jews,” don’t really believe in FREEDOM at all, do you?!
        While you’re going around being the on-site PC Mind Gestapo, why don’t you be consistent and criticize ALL of the bigotry. You know, not just the “anti-Semitism” but also the Jewish hatred of all things European.

        • tracey marie

          bigotry is not free thought, it is ignorance

  • Chris

    Is this a reliable site for information?

    It seems very click-bait orientated and driven by hype rather than truth. Not much better from the media, arguably worse as there wouldn’t be a requirement for apologizing or correcting false statements or lies.

    • JewishGay

      Honestly, I was going to type something out but I have too much homework to even begin with this website. There is no way any legitimate academic would even deign to espouse or even read anything on this website. This is the sort of site that should be on tv – like comedy central type tv – for the absolute ridiculousness and idiocy of its grammar, authors, and content.
      The “founders” of this website did not go to college. The authors are nowhere to be found on the internet.
      This is a bunch of loser idiot low-income guys who smoke a lot of weed and think that acid has brought them to the tree of life and it’s now their job as enlightened beings to expose the injustices of this world to all of the stupid “people of the system.”
      The only thing that upsets and truly concerns me is how popular they are, and how many people actually repost their stuff on facebook.
      Find me one article published by a college graduate that has this website as a citation.

      • CassandraSays

        YOU appear not to have gone to college or you would have a more realistic understanding of how hard it is and how much one learns there. The American college graduate has attained this “honour” in a system that believes it is a human right to go to college, which can only be accomplished by dumbing down colleges to be accessible to people with double-digit IQs.

        Have you seen those polls that determine how many college graduates know this or that common and significant fact? How many do you think know about the rape of the Congo?

        • tracey marie

          so you are now attacking people who could be mentally challenged as dumb…you regulars have expressed, misogyny, bigotry and now pure hate.

          • CassandraSays

            And I include you. Describing someone is not attacking them. Nor is committing ad hominem all over the thread an argument.

            Among the dumbest ideas around is the notion that by constantly changing the preferred descriptives we are combating the negative attitudes they carry. I have around 60 years in the civil rights movement, and I have not noticed a great decline in American racism as we went from negro to black to Afro-American to African American.

            I think the best word for “mentally challenged” was retarded, which contains the idea that the person you speak of will get it if you are patient and take more time teaching him or her.

          • tracey marie

            Uh huh, always the old people who think it is okay to attack others and play princess…clue, you are rude and wrong. retarded is not a good word, autism, downs, and many other diseases and problems from gestation do not give you the right to call people retarded or worse. Shame on yo,. Cafeteria civil rights activist online.

          • CassandraSays

            If you knew anything about the civil rights movement you would know that cafeterias were front and centre.

          • tracey marie

            laughing at you…if you had any intelligence that would not have been your response.

      • Pavels

        I bet you are the kind of dumb-down grunt that thinks –

        1) the earth is spinning around at 1000 miles an hour
        2) we and all things on it are pinned to it by gravity even though NO ONE has produced a model for this theory EVER
        3) that even if we are in London and on the top side of the ‘globe’, the people on the bottom, say in Australia, are not upside down
        4) that even if the earth is spinning around so fast, we don’t feel it and planes going in opposite directions get to their destinations at the same time
        5) That the 4th tower of the wtc was demolised by an airplane at 911 even though no airplane struck it
        6) that the ISS is real and that the monkeys you see spinning around in it are actually in ‘space’ even though the DEEPEST we have ever been down into the earth is no more than 8 MILES!!!!.

        It is idiots like you that give the human race a very bad name 🙂

      • I Want To Be A Tree

        Myles, I’m assuming you’re an American by the way you argue your point with ad hominem attacks. You’ll probably have to look that up. Your trust in academia and college grads as more reliable sources of knowledge and information is completely misplaced. A college degree is no guarantee of a truly educated mind.

        You referenced TV, so let me suggest you watch the video below and all the related ones on that page. It’s a segment of a highly popular Canadian satirical show called Talking To Americans. Be sure to read the first comment by Rod Strayer, an American history teacher, who states in part:

        “The show goes on to actually interview leaders from both parties, as well as professors from liberal universities. As an American, and a history teacher, I do use this video to show how ignorant we actually are about the world around us.”

        Various segments of the show feature interviews with so-called educated people, including top politicians, governors of states, university professors and their students. The show reveals just how ignorant most Americans are in general. Talking To Americans should have a sub-title, American Idiots.


        • tracey marie

          You insulted someone while chiding them for being “insulting” oh the irony of your statement.

          • I Want To Be A Tree

            You need to work on your reading comprehension skills. It seems like you’re trying to appear intelligent by using the word “irony”, but you got it wrong.

            I didn’t chide Myles for being insulting. I insulted him for his style of argument, but I chided him for his false assumption that a college degree is an indication of superior knowledge. It clearly is not, as the evidence I provided demonstrates.

          • tracey marie

            No, I am intelligent and you and a few other posters are just disgusting low lifes. The foul language, the lies and the droning on without facts is sad to witness.

          • I Want To Be A Tree

            Wow! You reveal you your true vileness. I made a mild insult of someone else for arguing by ad hominem, one of the lowest forms of argument. I could have said far worse things about him but didn’t. And my insult of you was also mild, merely calling into question your intelligence, since you were unable to correctly understand my comment to Myles. And then you respond with an extreme insult, calling me a disgusting low-life. And worse, you ascribe (you might have to look that up), you ascribe to me things I never said (foul language, lies, droning on without facts). I have no doubt you are just one more American idiot, and probably a Trump supporter given your ugly words.

          • tracey marie

            laughing…you were meaner to me then I was too you…really

          • I Want To Be A Tree

            Now you just sound childish, exactly like Trump did with his whining in all 3 debates.

          • tracey marie

            I am just imitating you…I have one raging racist, you a child and a foul mouthed women threatening me…you guys are nutz, one day you might grow up.

          • I Want To Be A Tree

            Look in the mirror. You really are a stupid child. You just keep making things up. I never threatened you. You were the one who interfered and replied to my comment to another person, a comment that was not directed at you all, unless you identified with one of those college-educated American idiots I was talking about. If you didn’t want to be called out as an idiot, you should have kept your mouth shut. You’re a typical American, you just can’t help interfering where you don’t belong.

    • DemandSider2

      Don’t trust any, single source. But, this is one of the sites I go to to find information not available elsewhere.

      • Pavels

        There you go!! Well done Free Thought!!

    • Rambo Furum


    • CassandraSays

      My, someone has been feeding you fairytales about the media. You seem to think they are answerable to someone. Who do you think it is who “requires” them to correct false statements?

  • Jerrie Butler

    Bullshit doubled. This is an anti-government, anti-governmental agency. Best not read..and certainly not to be believed.

    • Pavels

      Jerrie, you are deep into the Matrix. Let me educate you. Go on YouTube and look up the first term campaign insults from Barack Obama directed at Hillary Clinton. Listen to them carefully. They are 100% the same thing that Trump is saying about her. Now, isn’t Hillary and Obama the best of mates? There is no ‘government’, just a charade. The US is 100% ruled by other that the two clowns that Americans get to choose every 4 years or so.

  • RBrownfield

    Seems most of the info on here is pretty legit. Just because it’s not coming from the corporate media, doesn’t mean it has no validity. They seem to take the info from verifiable sources, and present a POV that is logical. I’m not saying they’re perfect. Anyone who features Rand Paul in an otherwise powerful video, needs to be questioned about specific other issues. Not really into Libertarian dogma. Other than that, what I’ve read from here seems to be well researched, and usually well written.

    • Star

      Because it’s NOT coming from the corporate media, “corporate” being the red flag, it’s more likely to be legit. MSM is nothing more than a tool for propaganda. Thank goodness for pure unbiased journalism and legit alternative reporting. They and the brave whistleblowers are our hope for salvation from fascist rule. Based on some of these hateful comments, there are still those drinking the kool-aid.

  • Tammy Porter

    I don’t know how this crap keeps coming up on my Facebook page but I did not request this offensive propaganda. Until I figure out how to remove this, I will continue to post with equally offensive crap.

    • Dannyboy 76

      Somebody is triggered and needs a safe space.

      • tracey marie

        misogyny is a sad thing to witness, tsk tsk
