A New Wave in News Reporting Needs Your Support

"You know how when you get a big pile of emails, you just want to ditch everything in the Inbox? Well, even when I feel that way, I leave email from WantToKnow alone. I mark it to read the next morning when I am fresh and in a better mood. I often learn a new perspective and am seldom disappointed. All of us who suffer from information overload have come to realize that the main purpose of WantToKnow is to relieve us of that burden by helping us to sort, saving us time and energy, while still not missing highly important things we want to know." -- Brad Blanton, Ph. D., Author of Radical Honesty

Dear friends,


News reporting these days is filled with annoying advertisements and often covers only the most superficial aspects of what's going on in our world. You subscribe to the PEERS/ email list because you want a much deeper analysis of what's going on behind the scenes in our world.

We have chosen to have no advertising both on our website and in emails to keep the message clean and to help promote a new wave where readers rather than advertisers support the news service. This keeps corporate money and influence out of the news process.

I'm writing now to ask you to help us continue this important work. We currently have a budget deficit of nearly $10,000 for this year. With over 14,000 subscribers and well over a million visiting our website every year, we should be able to stay in the black. Yet less than 5% of our subscribers help financially to keep this service going. Will you help us to increase those numbers and erase our deficit? In doing so, you are supporting an inspiring new wave in news reporting. Please help with a donation and/or by using the link mentioned below when making purchases on

"I know of no site that has used technology as well as yours. You have achieved the delightful goal I was looking for. One can follow one's thought processes forever with your links. There are many good websites on the Internet – but nothing I find compares to all you have put together in one place. One thing that is missing on the other sites is the most important connection to the spiritual world and learning to share our love. You have the most well-rounded site I have found." -- Dennis H.
