In this age of sensationalism and hyperbole, ProCon reminds us of the meaning of informed discourse. ProCon not only selects some of the most sensitive topics for review, but presents them in a balanced manner. ProCon's contribution to a reasoned exchange in the marketplace of ideas is superlative, and unlike anything else I've ever found.

A true journalism, consistent, impartial and balanced. These are the qualities you hardly see on the networks.

Procon.org is a wonderful resource, both sides of issues, in an easy format. In a world full of b.s. it is one place that I can find what I need to make informed decisions.

ProCon.org has so effectively fulfilled its mission strategically via the exposition of facts and opinions from persons who have the experiences and insights to help us derive the truth from facts. We glean possible mindsets from the positions and experiences of contributors whose opinions are helpful for us to analyze critically our own mindsets and opinions. The overall benefits? We become aware of information to challenge or valdate our own. We then are able to project how principles are applied in real life situations, motivating us to reconsider our priorities. Ultimately, ProCon.org empowers us to be free to make our choices consciously and conscientiously ... hopefully to align our minds and hearts to enduring and timeless principles.

I have over 35 years in the information technology industry. I can't think of a better way to review and understand difficult and contentious issues. ProCon.org helps people become more knowledgeable and make better decisions and that becomes an extremely valuable tool.

While available to the general public, ProCon.org is especially valuable when used in schools and the education community. I'm especially grateful that my grandchildren and all children have the many benefits of ProCon.org.

Highly efficient organization, spending 87.1% of expenses on excellent program services. An excellent alternative to the garbage put out by the Wikimedia Foundation.
