Work for the Guardian Express
The Guardian Express has turned the corner from baby starter or start-up to a real online newspaper. We tried, though unsuccessful, to execute both a print and online product. Print proved however, to expensive for us to maintain. Thus, we have eliminated our print edition so we could channel our efforts towards making our online newspaper the best it could be. I am quite happy to announce we are currently breaking even and we’re on track to turning a profit by the beginning of 2013. I worked for a print newspaper for 20 weeks before I received compensation and spent 10 years working on a BA, MA and PhD before I saw any real fruit from my labor, but I gained in knowledge and experience. Thus, what we offer is a real opportunity for writers and reporters to grow their talent and skills in a professional journalistic environment. No time clocks, no pressure, just peer accountability. Your work will be subjected to 750,000 to 1,000,000 verifiable readers per month. Do you have that many verifiable viewers on your blog? If you do, you definitely don’t need us.
Ultimately, when we make the transition from breaking even to net profits (if our marketing department accumulates enough advertising dollars), the best writers and reporters will eventually be paid a standard wage for their content. Click here to view our staff
That said, we are first and foremost an online newspaper in Las Vegas with a broad agenda that includes national and world news that is updated daily.
While I would be glad to have you aboard, I must first know that you have read and understand the parameters for compensation. If you find this arrangement unacceptable, then I appreciate your interest and wish you the very best. However, if you decide to take the leap of faith with us, then I would like to discuss your goals as well as ours to see if we can together fashion an attractive win-win working relationship.

Again thank for your interest in The Guardian. DiMarkco’s Scholarly Works. The article below will provide you with my own world view and help you understand the foundation of the Guardian Express. It is a carefully thought out analysis of the realities I believe permeate our human existence, and my attempt to start a conversation centered around inclusivity. The example that the Guardian Express represents is that we provide a platform for diverse expressions to have their voices heard.
The Historical Model:
Written by DiMarkco Chandler
Inclusivity is perhaps the single most important human need to facilitate and demonstrate fairness for all members in an open and free society. When this principle need is compromised by appearances of unscrupulous self-interested privileged elites to perpetuate a systemic widening disparity between social-economic classes favoring exclusivity, it is eminently imperative to galvanize public opposition to mitigate this threat. A society that is governed by its collective citizenry should never be marginalized by its institutions or the people that run them. No institution should be more esteemed than its human beings. Thus, this paper seeks to provide a historic backdrop to help trigger a new wave of global interaction and imagination. We must make an effort to level the playing field so that all voices are invited to participate in our global conversation. I for my part offer this short analytical portrait into “The Historical Model” as a starting point towards gaining greater understanding and inspiration to further our global debate.
Sociologists like Thomas Jefferson have argued for years, that the root of man’s social behavior and response to his own existence is fear. They have found that man’s fears govern the way he navigates through the difficulties of life. Once man managed to mitigate his fear of death, he next wrestled with the problem of solving his fear of loss and diminishment in his social world. Man found that he could mitigate this new fear by increasing his own value. For the most part, his value was intrinsically and inextricably connected to his relationship with his immediate community, which in ancient times meant his tribe or village. He had discovered that real value was in his community, not his individuality. Thus, he sought to enhance himself by enhancing his community. He determined that the best way to achieve this goal was through social relationships that facilitated the buying and selling of products and services, which indeed brought increased value to his community. He perhaps furthermore imagined that this activity of buying and selling would enhance his quality of life by distancing him from his social fears. As a result, those in his community would dutifully validate his worth by continuing to include him as one of their members while he dutifully provided them with products or services that they valued and utilized. This was the old model. The individual was important to the community and the community was important to the individual. Through the passing of time, this model began to change along with a paradigm shift that facilitated and justified this change. Buying and selling was still important in this new model, however, instead of an emphasis on community the emphasis began to gradually highlight the individual.
One of the basic truths affecting all of us in the modern world community is that we are the scions of a conflation of cultures, ancient and modern, that have evolved to produce a world in which scholars have characterized as having two distinct groups, privileged and marginalized. This dichotomy and disparity of existence has grown evermore complex since man has emerged as a civilization builder. In addition, this new model has survived all attempts to expose and depose it as the principle influence on human behavior and fortune. You might not like it, but we all live within the confines of this structural influence, and yet, though it has an enormous impact on us all, we as individuals have little if any influence in shaping this monumental force on our lives. This model elevates a small number of privileged elites to its plateau and jettisons the rest of the human race into a marginalized existence of unimportance. These macro structures have been formed by privileged elites for preserving their quality of life via the preservation of their social-economic and political ideals and values. In other words, the model elevates those that give their allegiance to it (the privileged). Moreover, through the development and use of institutions, the model is able to foreground the collective values of the privileged in order to strengthen and perpetuate its authority and existence. As a result, all of us are subject to the particular proclivities of this model. Our very orientation into the world, from youth on, is a product of this model. Its impact and influence is worldwide, affecting our values and behavior cross culturally. This orientation is the thread that connects us all to a world community. Such a structure has sometimes been called a pyramid because from the bottom to the top it gradually diminishes in size while paradoxically growing in power and authority. At its base lie the vast faceless and voiceless pillows of society, excluded however from much of the fruit they engender. At the pyramid pinnacle lays a tenuous and trepid few in constant fear of having their surreptitious practice of exploitation exposed, and responds to this threat by theoretically triggering the creation of institutions designed to protect it as it makes use of the first rule of survival, self-preservation. This is arguably how our world operates. The appearance of institutions provide hidden support for those values that protect and perpetuate this ever evolving systemic condition; emphasizing exclusion over inclusion, individual over community, hierarchy over egalitarianism and privileged over marginalized. Today, in the West, our orientation tells us that we make it by virtue of pulling our individual selves up by our boot straps, never-mind the fact that the heel of your boot is lodged in, and on, the heads of others as you springboard your way to the top. Forget about the poor, the blind, or the handicapped in society because in this model, they don’t matter! Within the scope of this model, the so-called “have-nots” have little if any value and therefore, warrant exclusion. Such apathy is often captured in the popular expression “that’s just the way things are”. Yes, perhaps that is the way things are, however, the premise of this argument proclaims that’s not the way things have to be, or have to remain.
Through the ideas and ideals of inclusivity over exclusivity, and ownership as oppose to proletariat, in theory, may inspire a different revolutionary concept and philosophy. The concept is to combine the values of inclusivity with ownership in order to produce both a community that values its members and sees them as essential to the value of their community, and individuals who value their community and see the value of their community as fundamental to their own individual value. By emphasizing the importance of inclusivity, ownership, and community, it is this author’s belief that the human race can position itself for the task of preserving civilization for centuries to come.
If someone, somewhere, in a world dominated by fear and individual self-interest, could begin to see that the word WE, has a much greater potential and power than our drifting emphasis on me, perhaps maybe the seeds of change could find fertile soil at last. After all, look at the bright side. Isn’t change inevitable? Arguably, for all the good and bad that Thomas Jefferson has said and done, one quote in particular seems to have captured our present divide; “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” It is my hope that the blood of patriots and tyrants can be avoided; but what cannot be avoided is change. After all, our liberty is at stake.
