Locale is a place that will be gathering, sharing, analysing, and commenting on issues, ideas, and events circulating in global and media news.
Locale wants to break itself, and you, out of our echo chambers of chat and perspectives - allowing us to compare views we agree with, next to others we might not, but that are nonetheless gaining momentum.
in doing this, Locale hopes to get a more nuanced view of the perspectives arising as events and news pop into our global consciousness. As of late a lot of whack shit has happened due to conveniently tuning out of discourse we disagree with, and undermining its power.
we're not looking at giving equal weight to the b.s. circulating, but rather observing that it's there while looking at how to understand and therefore combat it in a way that makes sense.
no complete objectivity is claimed on Locale, but rather positionally on issues is highlighted. This gives you the opportunity to locate your locale on whatever is being offered up, while examining other ideas dotted around - as well as far afield - from your own.
more than anything locale wants you to get out of your head, into someone else's, and then locate yourself wherever you want to from there.
eat your greens, locate locale.
