A Reminder of Mission.
Elephant aspires not to be a blog that merely sticks to smoothie recipes and “Top 10 Ways to be Happy” blogs without venturing into uncomfortable subjects including religion; civil rights and feminism; animal rights & veganism; criticism of business ethics; reviews of art, music, food; and politics. We are not here to make ourselves happy: we are here to help all of us to become more enlightened, in the worldly sense. Open and free and respectful dialogue is painful, sad, hurtful…and vital to a kind, responsible society.
Journalism ethics 101: we
As long as views are fair, respectful, and open-minded, we support dialogue and non-aggressive criticism, including self-criticism.
