Mentsch bears similarity to mensch, German for human. And Mentsch Magazine does indeed seek to explore the human - from a wide range of different perspectives. But mentsch means something more; it is Yiddish for a person of honor and integrity, someone who is free yet grounded. We aspire to cultivate such people. Radical people.
Mentsch is an independent magazine sprung out of Skaperkraft, and is a growing family of activists, academics and artists. Even though it is a diverse family, it is driven by people who refer to themselves as radically conservative. That implies striving for particularly three virtues: to think freely, love affectionately, and breathe spiritually. We invite you into this family, whether you are a radical conservative or not; sign up for Mentsch Q (below).
We share fresh ideas here at mentschmagazine.com, be it in the form of essays, poems, pictures or film clips. To stay up-dated, follow our chief editor Andreas on Facebook and Instagram. In the future, Mentsch will publish paper editions and host house parties, further stimulating the public discourse in Norway and Europe at large.
If you want to contribute to the magazine or discuss ideas for future publications, do not hesitate to contact Andreas.
