The Bell is a merger of three websites: Progressive Independent, Populist Independent, and Socialist Independent. The complete contents of all three sites will be available here, although some content may not be visible. In addition, The Bell is also a new forum and electronic journal. Previous content is used, not as a reference point, but as seed for new conversations.
The Layout of the Site
The Main Forums are much more concentrated and minimalist than was true of the previous websites. They represent an attempt to focus the discussion (primarily in Political Discussion), instead of diffusing it across a wide range of independent topics.
This is an e-journal of political and social criticism, overwhelmingly materialist in its outlook. Join us if you wish.
