Welcome to Bold Utterances.
Our Mission – Disband the American Paradigm
As usual, the world is in a state of political and social turmoil. Our generation, Gen Z, needs to step up. Soon all of the old white guys will be dead and bigotry can die off with them. We can finally start to combat the damage inflicted upon our society by centuries of racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia, imperialism, antisemitism, islamophobia, and just your run-of-the-mill hatred. Over the past few years, the youth have started a dialogue about the problems we’re facing and how we can take action.
We need to be the generation that ends the cycle.
We have a long road ahead of us, undoing the last few generations’ unbounded attempts to stab humanity to death. So, how do we reverse the societal damage and trauma that we’ve inherited? We’re here to start by amplifying the conversation. Just because Z is the last letter in our alphabet, doesn’t mean it’s the end.
I hate to say it because it makes me so sound cheesily optimistic…
but this is our revolution. It’s just beginning.
Our Origins – From the Editor
In 2018, I visited Oslo, Norway. I went to the Norway Resistance Museum (link in our resources page), which holds a detailed exhibition of Norway’s resistance during the Nazi occupation in WWII. There I discovered our predecessor, Bold Utterances.
It was one of 300 underground newspapers formed to combat the Nazi regime. They conveyed messages between members of the resistance, and educated people about the events of the occupation, since the mainstream news was censored.
They created, what writer Bob Moore refers to as, “an intellectual battle field”.
I’ve been using social media to express my thoughts and opinions (they’re endless, you’ll see) to friends and family. Now I’m sharing my “art” on a much larger, more public canvas. And I want to share yours too, because, in the 21st century, this is our battlefield.
