The Gordian: sign up and get our monthly magazine.

So far The Gordian magazine has been presented in a PDF format sent to your email on a monthly basis. While this may have been perfect for readers who printed our magazine on traditional paper or those who used computer devices with bigger screens, such as laptops or tablets, mobile users often had to pinch and zoom on a specific section of the page in order to see a paragraph of text. For this reason, we have decided to change the way The Gordian magazine is presented for a temporary period of time. 

As of April 2020 to June 2020, all of Gordian magazine issues will be available on a web page rather than a PDF file.

We hope that the this change will help our readers to:

  • Have a more mobile-friendly experience when reading the magazine.
  • Improve the way they interact with the monthly quiz.
  • Access every issue of the magazine instantly and from anywhere.

We also believe that this change will allow us to:

  • Make the magazine accessible to people with disabilities.
  • Make changes to the magazine if and when they are needed.

We kindly invite you to tell us what you think about this change and what we can do to improve your experience of reading The Gordian.

Take ownership of UN-aligned

Unlike most organisations, UN-aligned is, primarily, its members. We are the New United Nations and though just a drop in the ocean, for now, we will carry on growing until we will become a force to be reckoned with!

The more of us there are, the more chance we have of achieving our aims. Help us by promoting membership to you friends or to people you think have similar values. If every member added another, membership would snowball and we would be unstoppable!

We also need active members: people who roll up their sleeves and contribute to the work of the organisation. Some already have, for instance, by writing articles for The Gordian, or offering to help with proofreading.

No matter what you can do, we want you. Write to us with your talents and we’ll make it work.

The social ills equation… Minus inevitability

“Disaster… it could happen to anyone.” Think about it too much and you will go mad: that endless list of slings and arrows. Yes, it could happen to anyone, but it is best to plod along as though it could never happen to us. Perhaps they deserved it. Karma. Their suffering is like a parallel universe: it need never touch us…

In this issue of The Gordian, we cover various social issues ranging from rough sleeping to poverty. 

This issue contains exclusive reports by, our literary editor, Alex Liberto, and other UN-aligned members, namely Jay DavisandCarla Pietrobattista. The editors are Adrian Liberto and Ariana Yekrangi.
