Jonah Bennett – About

Jonah Bennett is editor-in-chief at Palladium Magazine. Author page is available here.

I’m also a graduate student in international relations, and my research interests are political theory, democratic peace theory, peacebuilding, autocracies, ethnic conflict, counter-terrorism, and new, bold ideas that will reinvigorate our societies and communities. My primary background is in analytic philosophy, so I tend to bring that foundation into the political science work I do.

Disclosure: I currently think of myself as a centrist/pragmatist and am a registered member of the Liberal Party of Canada.

Values: extreme open-mindedness, experimentation, tolerance, loyalty, truth.

Jonah Bennett sometimes writes at Medium, microblogs at WordPress, posts aesthetics on Tumblr, composes music for SoundCloud, uploads photos and video on Behance, Flickr, and YouTube, and answers questions on Quora. Also reviews books at Goodreads. I’ve also been on Instagram a bunch these days. Crunchbase is better than LinkedIn.

More formal bio:

Jonah Bennett is editor-in-chief of Palladium Magazine, a non-partisan, long-form publication aimed at exploring the future of liberalism, governance, and society, through careful political analysis and journalism. After four years in national security journalism and a brief interlude at a think tank, he co-founded Palladium with Wolf Tivy in September 2018, as a response to the dearth of responsible, high-quality work in the media landscape. Palladium has sent journalists all over the world: from Xinjiang, to Hungary, Venezuela, Columbia, Paris, Istanbul, Davos, and more. Palladium’s work has been featured in The Atlantic, The Guardian, Bloomberg, Foreign Policy, Tech Crunch, The Week, Inside Higher Ed, and BuzzFeed News, among other publications. Jonah is also a graduate student in international relations and focuses primarily on democratic peace theory, political theory, liberalism, and ethnic conflict. When he’s not editing or working on his thesis, he enjoys experimental philosophy and advises several companies on the side.

“All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake up in the day to find it was vanity, but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.” – T.E. Lawrence

“We are pragmatists. We don’t stick to any ideology. Does it work? Let’s try it, and if it does work, fine, let’s continue it. If it doesn’t work, toss it out, try another one. We are not enamored with any ideology.” – Lee Kuan Yew
