The Contemporary Beacon (CB) was started by Eli Wachs, a sophomore at Stanford University who lamented hearing the same Trump sound bite reported throughout the entire day by the major news stations. CB will attempt to write think tank style deep-dive stories on the core topics behind fiercely debated issues. Not reactionary, CB instead wants citizens to understand what has become perhaps unfairly assumed political jargon before their elected officials amend them.

Our articles span the domestic topics not normally discussed such as Cabinet Department Programs, international affairs in countries which do not always make the front page, and technology with a focus on data rights.
