New at Mother Jones

The Scourge of Militarism
By Chalmers Johnson
Imperial dreams are undermining our political institutions. Is America going the way of the Roman Republic?

Why the Democrats Will Keep Losing
By Steven Hill
Biases built in to our electoral institutions hurt the Democratic Party every time.


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
