Freedom of Expression
The United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights (Article 19) states that the fundamental right of freedom of expression encompasses the freedom “to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers”.
The Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU), founded in 1889 and made up of 179 member parliaments describes itself as “the global organization of national parliaments [that] empower parliaments…to promote peace, democracy and sustainable development.”
The IPU takes the position that, for a healthy democracy to survive citizens must have the right to “express political opinions without interference”; to “seek, receive and impart information and to make an informed choice”
Obstacles to a Healthy Democracy
Clearly the widespread discovery of truth is a fundamental prerequisite to a healthy democracy. Those in pursuit of truth recognize there are two main obstacles to discovering truth. One is external, the other internal.
Overcoming both obstacles to truth is in the public interest. Gracklerr exists to serve that public interest.
Abraham Lincoln said: “I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis.”
The important phrase is: “If given the truth”. This speaks directly to the main external obstacle to discovering truth.
Individuals and organizations dogmatically committed to either a right or left political worldview often fail to deliver truthful information. The same goes for those who adamantly refuse to consider the validity of any opposing point of view.
Public interest is not served when media is biased in favor of one political point of view and social media’s censorship determines what we the people are allowed to see, hear, read or express.
This is especially injurious to the public interest when the biased individual or organization is in the “news” business.
A fidelity to fanaticism and a refusal to listen to opposing points of view fails to serve public interest. Public interest is best served when we have access to a wide variety of views and opinions.
Those posting content on Gracklerr own their own channel. They are free to express what they believe to be true. Therefore, a wide variety of views and opinions is built into Gracklerr’s DNA.
Truth seldom emerges in an environment where facts are prevented from freely flowing, unencumbered by arbitrary, capricious, or malicious banning, doxing, blocking, or deplatforming.
If you are knocked for questioning or humiliated for your quest to discover what actually happened, should that not make you wonder about the motives of those who brush legitimate concerns aside?
Begin sharing truth as you see it by creating your Gracklerr channel (see below).

Option a Channel
At Gracklerr you are never blocked, doxed, banned, or deplatformed for expressing what you believe is true.
Speaking of truth, you will notice images on this site of some individuals who, for many are household names. We trust no one is fooled into thinking the persons depicted have at this time either endorsed or joined Gracklerr. Their presence is “aspirational” on our part..
We expect the magnanimous among those to whom the images belong will weigh the negligible deleterious impact of the use of their likeness with the potential public good that would be realized if their presence encouraged the creation of a social network dedicated to exchanging a wide variety of opinions and conclude “no harm, no foul”. For more on this please see the Disclaimer at the bottom of nearly every page.
And of course it’s possible someone less charitable then we expect they are will sue for unlawful use of their name or likeness. Being sued in this particular case might be great for two reasons:
1) it could give us much needed visibility, and 2) punitive measures against a site dedicated to Non Partisan Pursuit of Truth® makes quite a statement.
The images are part of our non traditional plan for underwriting the development costs of Gracklerr. For more on Gracklerr’s funding model, please see the “Freedom of Expression” article above.
