The year 1945 was one of radical change for all of humanity. Some think of it as the year World War II ended. Others think of it as the marker for the beginning of the atomic age. Many bundle together countless wartime, political and economic events and consider it the start of U.S. primacy and dominance across the globe.
Founded in the darkest days of the Coronavirus pandemic in 2020, 19FortyFive seeks to ask a basic question: How does humanity cope with a world that seems always on the precipice of radical change each and every day? What happens when every day feels like the start of a new age? What happens when every day is 1945?
Founded by national security experts who are tired of the same old publications publishing the same tired ideas, our goals as we begin to try and answer this question are simple:
-We seek to hold no one ideology or opinion in favor. We are a non-partisan, non-factional publication. That means we publish a wide range of analysis, opinion, and reporting that is slanted to the left, right, and center. Accordingly, all of our writers and Contributing Editors come from very different backgrounds, many times disagreeing with one another vigorously.
-We welcome all ideas to the table. We seek to publish any idea provided you defend your ideas well through, reason, logic, and facts.
-Our editing process is non-invasive and devoid of any agenda. We do our best to publish your ideas in their original format as you envision them–not how we want them to appear.
-Never rely on a paywall. We will rely on tasteful and appropriate ads to support our operations in the months to come. Eventually, we plan to introduce a login system if and when Google removes cookies from the Chrome web browser. If this does happen, all content will still be free of charge to read.
-To use the best technology to ensure any content published here has the best chance of getting the most impact possible.
Over the last few months as our operations have expanded our analysis has been cited by a number of major outlets such as The Washington Post, The Hill, Reuters, Voice of America, RealClearWorld, RealClearDefense, RealClearPolitics, The Washington Examiner, The Washington Times, Japan Times, Asia Times, Yonhap, The NY Post, Fox News, The Telegraph, KBS, US News and World Reports, South China Morning Post and many others. Much of our content is also shared in top industry newsletters such as Daily on Defense (by the Washington Examiner), Defense News Early Bird, and many others.
A note on how we are funded: We are proud to share that this publication is entirely funded by ads at the moment. We do not accept any funding whatsoever from foreign governments or individuals.
