On to the second issue of The Art of Polemics. There is something truly amazing in having the ability to read freely in order to become educated on the subjects we love. Here, what we hold closest to our hearts is history, art, and culture. Yet, despite these categories we never forget about opinion and perhaps more importantly, the ability to engage in polemics and debate. The truth is that this magazine has no set political stance nor any really philosophical rigidity, we solely believe in the free flow of ideas. Whether a staunch libertarian or a socialist, we believe that debate and freedom of being able to express opinion is more important than having a certain direction.
With all of that in mind, I personally recommend the special feature on the War of 1812, and the long and interesting analysis of Millais’s greatest works. If you would like to send in more work, as The Art of Polemics is constantly looking for new and fresh ideas from young writers, contact us as at: op-ed@theartofpolemics
