And that's what we're doing with Reasoned - fighting the culture war head-on. The Left may have more power and influence, but we are going to start playing their game by entering the online marketplace of ideas with commonsense, conservative content.
Reasoned is providing daily, high-quality videos – interviews, monologues, animated videos, debates and more. The donations from this gofundme campaign will be used to sustain our team of editors, animators, cameramen, admin and build the audience, with a marketing budget. And we need your support!
We don't want to be in the pocket of anyone, and therefore want to rely on our grassroots supporters to help us raise our target annual budget of £100,000. Our initial aim with this fundraiser is to raise 50 per cent of that – £50,000.
Your support means we can focus on building this channel and on growing the movement. Together we can win the battle of ideas. Thank you so much!

It’s brave to think for yourself and not follow the crowd in 2020.
Despite the fact that living in the United Kingdom means you’re fortunate enough to live in one of the freest and most prosperous nations on earth. Why then do many still feel unable to share your true thoughts on social media. On dating apps. Or even feel guilty for associating with those you’d like to?
It should be seen as entirely reasonable to be proud of your country, proud to back common sense and proud to be pro-enterprise.
We’re calling on you to come out of the political closet and to stand up for what you believe in. Our online cancel culture depends on social anxiety and fear. The personal freedoms and equalities we’re taking for granted form part of the rich tapestry that is the UK’s history. It’s a belief system that explains why we never fell for fascism or communism and why we found uniformed despots laughable rather than inspiring.
The majority of the public agree with you, your politics and your value system, but are too afraid to say so. It’s time to come out of the closet—the political one. Only you can stand against the tide bring a reasoned fightback to this madness.
To challenge the pervasive left-wing bias in online content, much of which originates from the UK’s mainstream media and activist groups.
Social media today will see you ‘cancelled’ online for daring to argue in favour of common sense views. And it’s not hard to see why such views are attacked so often. A study released last year by the Knight Foundation looked at more than 86m tweets and concluded that Twitter is left-leaning. How much so? According to the study’s authors, their scoring analysis found that over half (57%) of users were defined as “centre-left” while another 10% were classified as “extreme left”. Only 8% of users were considered to be “centre-right”.
Outside of social media, online media is dominated by left-leaning outlets like Buzzfeed, Teen Vogue, Vox, Vice News and Netflix, whilst centre-right publications largely are hidden away behind paywalls. This has ingrained politically correct culture in public discourse. We at Reasoned feel it is time to offer a platform that asks viewers to think and not follow the narrative pushed by a media with an overwhelmingly left-wing bias.
Many people – and particularly younger people – don’t have a view on the merits of conservative values simply because they haven’t been exposed to them. Advocates of those values need to make the case for them. It is on us to ensure that the next generation is introduced to market-based solutions to the environment, housing and the cost of living crisis.
