Thusmagazine.com aims to consolidate fresh thinking about life-changing issues, fill in the gaps left by political and business coverage and add fact-based appraisal from informed sources, with humour, optimism and empathy. You won’t need a PhD to understand or enjoy it.

Thusmagazine.com aims to spotlight people and organisations that are trying to propose sensible or even outlandish solutions to problems that nearly all of us admit cannot be allowed to pass uncommented upon. The project will be partly open-source, but mostly moderated and edited. Thusmagazine.com will not attempt to be impartial but neither will it be knowingly influenced by anything other than a sense of describing and discussing what is right and decent.

We have very few rules apart from good taste. We won’t publish racist, sexist, bigoted or spiteful stuff.

Send us good stuff, particularly new thinking on economics, UK, US and EU politics, ecology, new technology, the environment, business, finance, development, food, consumerism, energy, culture – which we may or may not include, edit or comment upon.
