Hi, what are you looking for?

About Us

19FortyFive’s Mission:

What Is 19FortyFive? Simply put: We publish content on politics, defense, and national security issues by some of the world’s top and most respected thinkers with the credentials to match. We have no political focus, meaning that all sides from the left or right are welcomed – something almost no publication does these days. We have no ‘editorial line’. We believe all ideas should have a chance to flourish or die on their own merits. We also receive no outside funding – we are only powered by ads. 

About Us: The year 1945 was one of radical changes 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.

Refounded after spending years as a regional defense publication, it was in the darkest days of the Coronavirus pandemic in 2020 that we rebooted our mission.

19FortyFive seeks to ask a basic question: How does humanity cope with a world that always seems 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?

Led 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 analyses, opinions, 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.

What Is Our Publishing Focus or Niche?

19FortyFive seeks to tackle the issues and questions raised above through the lens of national security, defense, military analysis, and international politics through expert analysis and commentary. We also pull together symposiums with experts who often have direct policymaking experience at the high levels of government

However, we realize that many other issues impact our core niche that we feel we must cover to give our readers the most comprehensive perspective possible.

That is why we also cover U.S. domestic politics, economics, culture, the impact of technology, and even social issues.

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. 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.
