The community for those who believe that a free society is worth fighting for.

Persuasion is a “newsletter think-tank hybrid” that aims to debate and defend the values of a free society. The publication has a strong element of a community, gathering people that believe in liberal principles and want to make a difference. An all-star cast of writers and activists explores topics from race and gender to safetyism and call-out culture. Subscribe to a newsletter and join the discussion through events, book clubs, and social gatherings.



Yascha Mound, the founder of Persuasion is an author and political scientist that believes “the values of a free society are under threat.” Together with a community that includes Thomas Chatterton-Williams and Garry Kasparov, David French and Emily Yoffe, Elif Shafak, and Francis Fukuyama, he created Persuasion, a publication that is devoted to defending the ideals of a free society.


By choosing the free version you are supposed to receive only public articles and podcast episodes. To be more precise, the majority of content (up to 5 issues a week) is being distributed for free. So enjoy the newsletter and consider subscribing to support the community of writers.


The paid subscription of Persuasion costs $10. It is stated that the paid subscription will give you subscriber-only content, podcasts, and live events, but in real life - you can expect one additional content piece a week.
