ABOUT

TROMnews is made by TROM, a project that started back in 2011, aimed at showcasing how our world-wide trade-based society is destroying pretty much everything: lives, the environment, the present, the future. From jobs to money, data collection or ads, borders and laws, all of this maze and craze is unnecessary in a world where we have so much abundance that we create mountains of waste out of it. It is time to move beyond this, and create trade-free goods and services for everyone, something we are starting to do now. We are creating/enabling a lot of online trade-free services: from video platforms, to social networks, operating systems, search engines, educational materials, and so much more.

Some tips for TROMnews:

  1. Be aware, some content can be BS (Bad Science). Although all of the content on this website is curated by us, it is impossible to keep track of it all. So be aware of that. The more scientific your brain is, the better you are at spotting the BS.
  2. The website may not be 100% trade-free. Since the content is pulled from hundreds of RSS sources, some of these sources might contain links that inject trackers into the browser, thus you have to trade your data to them. This is hard to avoid and has nothing to do with us. We are trying to minimize that impact, but we strongly recommend for anyone to install a few browser extensions that will stop the aggressive online trades, such as data and attention trading (trackers and ads). We recommend: uBlock Origin and Privacy Badger.
  3. Leaving the website will not be trade-free. Unless you have the above extensions enabled, leaving the website will probably mean that you have to trade your attention and data to most of the sources (websites). So be aware of that. We highly recommend the extension Privacy Redirect that will redirect known websites such as Youtube, Twitter and the like, to their trade-free alternatives.
