Person of the Day: Unknown Soldier

An Unknown Soldier. The next to be sacrificed, in this war for a lie, for the rich fantasy life of politicians and the tribal fears of the the rest of us…on the fourth anniversary of the invasion. He/she will be perhaps someone you know, or not. But to paraphrase Arthur Miller, “They were all our sons and daughters.”


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.
