It’s been a long time in the making lads, but here it is: the future of European online media. The Old Continent is designed to push back against the Social Justice and Identity Politics agenda of VICE, Huffington Post and BuzzFeed, while at the same time offering a centre right, more fun and light-hearted alternative to Breitbart’s and Infowars’ high octane polemics and conspiracies that don’t get anyone laid.

“The truth is that the masses grew out of the fragments of a highly atomized society whose competitive structure and concomitant loneliness of the individual had been held in check only through membership in a class.

UK Advertising Authority bans “harmful” gender stereotypes in hopes to achieve ‘Gender Equality of Outcome’
