About Doublethink

Doublethink’s mission is to identify and develop young conservative and libertarian writers while delivering an excellent magazine of politics, culture, economics, and the arts. Doublethink is the official magazine of America’s Future Foundation. It is found online at AFF’s website and does not publish a print edition.Doublethink’s editorial philosophy emphasizes three principles: original reporting, informed commentary, and a youthful spirit of irreverent inquiry. We put our young and relatively inexperienced writers to work investigating stories other magazines overlook. We then inject healthy doses of scrutiny and informed opinion into our exclusive finds. The result is a type of intelligent opinion journalism that is rare in American letters today and even rarer from writers in their twenties.In Doublethink, young writers with good ideas, raw talent, and a drive to succeed–but with few or no publication credits to their vitae–finds professional, well-regarded editors who are as invested in their success as any newspaper or magazine editor is invested in a top reporter or essayist.
