The new issue of Mother Jones magazine is now online!

Here’s a sampling of what’s inside:

In “The Three Conversions of Walter B. Jones,” Robert Dreyfuss details how the conservative congressman from North Carolina who coined the term “freedom fries” turned against the Iraq war. (Read it.)

Daniel Duane wonders why, with gang violence on the rise, a proven anti-gang strategy known as the “Boston Miracle” is being dissed by the L.A.P.D., the FBI, and Congress. (Read it.)

Nir Rosen journeys to the madrasas and streets of Pakistan, where students learn to hate in the name of love. (Read it.)

JoAnn Wypijewski considers our rules of war and finds them dangerously unclear. (Read it.)

And Chris Bachelder argues that The Jungle, Upton Sinclair’s underrated classic about the meatpacking industry in Chicago, is due for a critical reappraisal. (Read it.)

LESS DREADING, MORE DOING

This is the rubber-meets-road moment: the early days in our first fundraising drive since we took a big swing and merged with CIR to bring fearless investigative reporting to the internet, radio, video, and everywhere else that people need an antidote to lies and propaganda.

Donations have started slow, and we hope that explaining, level-headedly, why your support really is everything for our reporting will make a difference. Learn more in “Less Dreading, More Doing,” or in this 2:28 video about our merger (that literally just won an award), and please pitch in if you can right now.
