ABOUT SECOND NEXUS

Second Nexus is a New York City-based digital publication bringing newsworthy content in close conjunction with a powerful network of social media platforms. Our mission is to declutter the Internet highway by providing content that not only entertains but enlightens.


OUR MISSION

Our content serves the audience of George Takei and beyond, providing our readers news with commentary from a progressive perspective they have come to expect from the social media giant. Second Nexus also explores humanity’s outlook as we hurtle towards a new and unknown future. As the speed at which our technologies advance renders the next stage of our development unpredictable, questions of social justice, sustainability, and the human condition become far more than academic. Advancements in shared knowledge and unprecedented access to information have not always resulted in us putting forward our best selves; Second Nexus aims to raise the level, and the tone, of the conversation.

It's a common Republican scare tactic to claim that Democrats seeking common sense gun safety reform are on a secret mission to take all of Americans' guns.

But former Congressman Paul Broun (R-GA) just took that conspiracy theory a step further in a new campaign ad for his election to the open House of Representatives seat for Georgia's ninth district.
