A message for Chris and the investors
My message is simple. If Chris and Adam are not completely free to set the direction of Peak Prosperity, then I am no longer interested in any content from this site, even if it comes from Chris or Adam’s controlled mouths. I don’t want an outside source controlling them. I would rather be uninformed than misinformed.
I will take my money somewhere else.
I am putting my money where my mouth is. I am ending my renewal subscription until I hear about the next steps for this site.
I just suspended my renewal, too.
Free thought and free expression is not negotiable.
I am going to continue my subscription and wait and see.
Obviously, if Peak Prosperity departs from the commitment to truth-seeking or degenerates into a monstrosity like Twitter or Facebook or YouTube, then I am gone.
But right now, it is wait and see.
IF something nasty happens to PP, I’ll be looking for the uncensored Chris and Adam wherever they go next. Put me on your mailing list.
But since I don’t know yet what’s happened I’ll be waiting awhile longer before ending anything on my side. It’s a lot of money but these guys have been worth supporting for a looooong time, and then Covid happened. Talk about getting your money’s worth!
It’s odd feeling such gratitude and connection with people I’ve never met. I actually miss Chris, like a friend. We used to have the best chats, even if I did do all the listening.
Whatever happens next, THANK YOU Chris and Adam for the beautiful body of work you created here. Human intelligence in action is absolutely one of my favorite things and you bring a lot of it! I’d rather hear what you think about most topics than anyone else in the world.
Best wishes working this, whatever it is, out.
That was a nicely written post Herewego. I share your sentiments about PP.
Having known Chris and Adam for many years now I have no doubt they will do their best to maintain and expand on the commitment they have made to be “Our Faithful Information Scouts’.
Life has lots of twists and turns, especially now in our Fourth Turning. The events unfolding on our PP site are a part of that. When the seas get choppy, stay the course, at least until new information shows up that tells a different story.
My subscription stands. Chris is very busy scouting a course through whatever new events have come upon him. Meanwhile Adam (First Mate) has got the helm. Best let them know we have their back. If the ship has to be scuttled then you can count on the Cpt’n to give the word! Maybe he will and maybe he won’t but either way I’m looking forward to this weeks ‘Off the Cuff”.
Great job you guys.
Since Chris has been occupied with other matters, I am following this site les frequently. That’s why I don’t know what your percieved problem with the site is.
Can one of you describe it quickly?
We don’t know what the dispute is about…

It has been hard to read the understandable confusion and speculation on this thread and not be permitted to respond to it sooner.
A larger explanation should be coming very soon, but here’s what I can now share:
Peak Prosperity brought in new investors last year.
A few months ago, Chris and the investors decided they had conflicting views for running Peak. They have spent the past few months figuring out what to do about that.
I was asked to keep the matter confidential while the parties worked things out, after which they would announce the resolution they’d reached. And to keep Peak running to the best of my abilities in the meanwhile.
But the process has been taking longer than anticipated, stoking understandable concern among the PP community and, quite frankly, burning me out.
It has been VERY difficult working so hard to keep the quality content flowing and yet not being authorized to address the confusion expressed on this thread.
I’m told that it shouldn’t be long before a more detailed announcement is forthcoming. I, like you, am hoping hard for that.
But it’s important to me to get this short update to you. This community deserves the respect of knowing why Chris has been absent of late. All parties involved agree with that, as well as that the protracted delay has been regrettable.
Please forgive me if I can’t respond yet to questions this update may spark. I will as soon as able.
I don’t know what the dispute is either. I come here for Chris Martenson. If Chris wants to take the site in certain direction, then I am on his side. If we wait, then the outcome might be that Chris and Adam get censored. Waiting to see what happens means not supporting Chris NOW when he needs it. This is the moment for action.
It is time show force. Are you here in support of Chris or not?
Yes I am.
The only direction to follow is the direction of integrity!
If these investors think they know how to run a Tribe, they should try to do it themselves. Message to the investors: do what you are good at; “finding profitable operations” and let the content to the professionals. What content is concerned you should have the wisdom to know you are just an amateur.
