About | Alternative Information Directory

Censorship reflects a society's lack of confidence in itself. It is a hallmark of an authoritarian regime.

Big Tech sucks! Search engines and social media platforms are demonetizing, delisting, demoting, deplatforming and deleting content and users left and right, including vital and sometimes life-saving content. The Google's, Facebook's, Twitter's and YouTube's of the world are all willingly pushing narratives in concert with the agendas of corporations, governments, intelligence communities and organizations like the United Nations and the World Economic Forum. Finding relevant information regarding sensitive or controversial topics is becoming more and more difficult each day. For one example of how Google is censoring its search results, watch the video, Forget DEAD Internet: WEF & Google are DELETING It.

If you've been tooling around the web long enough, you may remember web rings and directories. A web ring (a.k.a. WebRing) is generally presented as a banner on a personal website which links to other websites in the ring, all of which generally have a similar theme with regard to the content type. A directory is a similar concept but the websites listed may or may not share a similar theme. In light of Big Tech censorship, these tools are making a comeback today.

The Alternative Information Directory aims to put a dent in Big Tech censorship by offering a categorized collection of high quality websites containing thought provoking and relevant information that may not be readily accessible via mainstream search engines and social media platforms. High quality personal websites, blogs and and alternative social platforms are especially valued, as are any websites or platforms that publish news or information from creditable, independent investigative journalists and researchers.
