The old world is already dead, while a new world is only emerging. To understand what’s happening in the world, you need a variety of information sources. You can’t settle for the big three conformist news agencies AFP, AP and Reuters. You have to hear different opinions and confront contradictory arguments.

To help you, we publish Voltaire, International Newsletter, a 10+ pages weekly newsletter which summarizes the facts and each other’s arguments.

This wealth of information is only accessible by subscription:
 Yearly subscription: €150
 Monthly subscription: €15

After subscribing, you will receive an email every Friday with a link allowing you to download Voltaire, International Newsletter in PDF.
