Op-Eds Speaking Truth to the Powers-That-Be

Writers Welcome to t2P

Writers, welcome to

Allow me to welcome you to t2P.  Here are a few items of interest to get you started.

Creating Your Account

You may have tried to accept that invitation and found it a bit confusing. In order to blog for t2P, you have to be a WordPress member first.

If you are, then you will add t2P to your existing blog or blogs.

If you are not, then you will be asked to create a blog on WordPress first.  Just go ahead and do it. You never have to use it. When done, you will see a menu at the top of the screen “My Blogs” where you can switch over to t2P.  Once there, you can go about entering your submissions for our publication.

What We Need

We’re looking for blogs between 500 and 2000 words, with the ideal at 800-1,200 words.

Regarding subject matter, almost anything goes. We would like to see thoughtful examination of news, society and culture that is outside of the box in its approach. De-spin the news. Write some satire. We’re up for anything other than celebrity gossip.

We require you ground your op-eds in fact. Please reference your piece with URL hot links and quotes from current news sources germane to your piece.

Look at the rest of t2P’s daily feed. If we have it already, probably not a subject we will accept again unless you’re coming at it from a very different take.

Feel Free

Freedom of speech is key to speaking truth to power. We do limit profanity, to keep our audience wide, but otherwise, we do not edit expression of your ideas.  We may edit the clarity or flow of your piece, or correct simple errors and omissions, or spelling or grammatical errors.

We may remove, or ask you to remove, portions of your manuscript that are not grounded in facts that we can verify.


All work is edited. We also will check to see if you have enough citations or grounding to your piece. Your piece will be marked up.  Corrections/additions in red.  Editor comments requests are in purple.  Once we edit your work, we’ll email you and ask you to review it, make any final amendments, and then email us back with your approval.  After that, we put it to the art department, and it gets published.

Other Questions

Feel free to email me at with any questions that you may have.

    As a research social scientist, I read your recent article, “When We All Become an Unnecessary…..” You identify many of the critical variables in the current trend toward universal unemployment and authoritarianism, and you suggest political involvement by way of voting as an engaged citizen as the way to counter this trend. What is missing from my standpoint in your article is identifying the fundamental need for global level government to address our many global level challenges. Voting at the state and national levels is no longer adequate, and the concerned citizens of the world have no substantial way to unify in their demands that global issues be addressed and resolved by the collective of nations. In its current iteration, the United Nations is flat out far too weak. But the UN can be reformed to become the governmental entity that can be empowered to do the needed job under a federalist conceptual umbrella. You can find my essays on this issue with references to the organizations that exist to promote the reform of the UN under the topic “Global Challenges – Global Government” on my website:

      Agreed. We can barely keep this government from sliding into Russian-Saudi fed fascism. They’ve also tanked many of the other world democracies, over the last 50 years. That’s a long, dim road.

About Truth-2-Power

A phrase coined by the Quakers during in the mid-1950's, "Speak truth to power," was a call for the United States to stand firm against fascism and other forms of totalitarianism; it is a phrase that seems to unnerve political right, with reason. The Founding Fathers of United States risked their lives in order to speak truth to the power of King George and the mighty British Empire. It was and is considered courageous. Join us!
