Lionsground.com was recently relaunched as an alternative to Patreon. In doing so, it has done away with any worries about censorship and is truly independent. I use this several times a day to catch up on alternative news. I have learned much within the forums. Topics range from UFOs, government, paranormal, crime and Tech news to Fake News. The stories are really interesting and are stories that i will not usually see in the MSM.
As an example, the current Crypto currency discussion within the forum has proved highly useful to me. I have learned a lot about crypto currency here and consider some of the information posted to be pretty high end.
I have also learned to begin questioning the information i take in from videos i watch on Youtube, particularly UFO related -as this is my main interest. If i have a question about a particular video i can simply post it and embed the video within the site. (something i find is really useful) and let others scrutinise it! Doing so, i am learning how to spot fake news more easily. I highly recommend this site. It is 100% more functional and useful that Patreon. I really look forward to seeing more interesting people within our community.
