Give MercatorNet a hand!
Michael Cook | Nov 24 2017 | comment 

It has been 12 years since we started MercatorNet. I never thought that it would have such a huge impact around the world.
More than 4.9 million people have read some of our articles. Every week I receive emails from people thanking us and explaining how it helps their families navigate the turbulent seas of the modern world. (The most recent was from Ethiopia!)
All this has been possible thanks to the work of volunteers, good writers, many donors and, especially, the talent and generosity of Carolyn Moynihan, our deputy editor.
We’re battling influential minorities which dominate the media and campaign to dehumanize our culture and to trash real marriage. That’s why it’s so important to keep providing good arguments so that families can spread the truth and transform the world.
To continue, though, we need your support. To increase the quality of our articles and offer you better resources, we need to raise $100,000 before the end of the year.
Please contribute today to MercatorNet. You will be transforming our society and giving your children a brighter future. 
Michael Cook
Editor, MercatorNet

The most important article in our list today is the one at the top: an invitation to give MercatorNet a hand financially. It's a lot of work to keep the website going and improve it, and although no-one gets paid a lot, it does cost money. So if you appreciate our work, please open this link and scroll down to the donate button.

You may have read in the news during the week about a few more prominent men who have been fired or stood down from their positions after being accused of sexual harassment. They include John Lasseter, the genius behind Disney Pixar hits such as Toy Story and Inside Out, which must be a great disappointment to fans. The "Weinstein effect" is huge. In the second of two articles on this issue I defend the Mike Pence rule -- about mixing with work colleagues of the opposite sex -- against what, to my mind, are quite specious criticisms.

And in a short but moving piece, Michael Cook, relays a story about an Australian woman's dying wish to see the beach one more time, and how paramedics transporting her to a hospice responded. Very simple things can mean a lot to a frail or dying person if we only give them a little of our time.
