Our aim is to revolutionize the way news is disseminated and consumed. The current paradigm of information distribution is one where the Corporate State Media dictates news based on ideology and motivated primarily on the need to maximize profit. Greed is driving the news industry into the gutters of sensationalism and sectionalism in order to generate more clicks and capture more eyeballs.
We are a news publication of the people, by the people and for the people. We don’t depend on corporate largess, we have faith in the people we serve and believe the change we want will come from us or it won’t come at all. By treating our readers like adults and leading conversations based on ideas instead of ideologies, we aim to reclaim media from the hands of corporate hounds. We are Ghion Journal (read more about our community model by clicking here).
Our aim is to discuss history, politics, culture, faith and love in a way that is unifying and in the process serve to counter the divisive and derisive nature of the age we live in.
What we are writing is a revolution in the making; not a revolution of guns and violence, but a revolution of the mind and the heart. And this revolution starts with the most powerful weapon of them all, the power of words imbued by love. We are depending on you, the reader, to take the words you read here and plant them into the hearts of the world. #GhionJournal
From the Editor and Founder
Audacity of Faith
From one to many, E Pluribus Unum in reverse, where one starts many will soon follow through hard work, faith, and an eternal search for truth. We are Ghion Journal.
Founder & Observer
Teodrose Fikre is the editor and founder of the Ghion Journal. A published author and prolific writer, a once defense consultant was profoundly changed by a two year journey of hardship and struggle. Going from a life of of upper-middle class privilege to a time spent with the huddled masses taught Teodrose a valuable lesson in the essence of togetherness and the need to speak against injustice.
Originally from Ethiopia with roots to Atse Tewodros II [read more about Teodrose’s roots here], Teodrose is a former community organizer whose writing was incorporated into Barack Obama’s South Carolina primary victory speech in 2008 [screen shot of emails]. He pivoted away from politics and decided to stand for collective justice after experiencing the reality of the forgotten masses. His writing defies conventional wisdom and challenges readers to look outside the constraints of labels and ideologies that serve to splinter the people. Teodrose uses his pen to give a voice to the voiceless and to speak truth to power.

*Be patient with us, we are fixing the bugs as we write the stories
I say we because I will one day soon turn into a collection of writers and thinkers who will revolutionize the journalism industry by taking it back to its roots. Have to speak things into existence.
