Tonight is the first-ever Beer and Politics night organized by The Propagandist Magazine. Several of our contributing writers and readers are meeting up in Storm Crow Tavern, a local Vancouver-area pub for a free-wheeling political discussion.

Wish US President Barack Obama would take a different approach to foreign policy that doesn't involve supplicating tyrants and handing over suitcases of cash to corrupt entities (just like every other US president before him)?
Think Noam Chomsky and Naomi Klein get it wrong -- oh, so very wrong?
“Our political commentary is often earnest, quirky, satirical and always provocative,” Narvey says. “We’ve got contributing writers from the left and the right. I like to think that the site is the ‘revolution of the centre’.”
But as the web has become a destination for those looking for compelling stories and social commentary, The Propagandist has plenty of company. Narvey makes no bones about it: standing out in this racket isn’t easy, but there can be ways to do it. Diversification and pushing the envelope are two tactics that The Propagandist has undertaken, and they appear to be serving the site well.
“Other political sites, magazines, etc. already take a “hard left” or a “hard right” stance, and that is because to get
