About Wake Up World

A labor of love.

For years, we watched the power-brokers of global governments perpetrate crimes in the name of “freedom”, tightening the censorship of opinions that contradict their agenda, and feeding us “news” that seems invented solely to manipulate, control and instil fear. Then on 1st May 2011, we witnessed yet another example of this rubbish; the supposed ‘killing’ of Osama Bin Laden – again – and his remarkably prompt and bodiless ‘burial at sea’. Overwhelmed, angry and in disbelief at the arrogance and laziness of this latest piece of propaganda, we decided to stop watching and do something positive in reply. That was the day that Wake Up World was born.

The ‘little blog’ that could.

Starting as a simple blog, our initial focus was to document some of the lies the world’s governments were spinning in the name of maintaining control and supporting the corporate agenda. Over the next 3 years, as our readership grew, the site – and we – grew and evolved with it. Now with a Facebook community of over 1.2 million people, and growing, Wake Up World is a thriving platform for a range of topics we believe are the most important today; physical health, emotional and spiritual growth, political and historical awareness, and social and environmental sustainability. Featuring independent writers from around the world, we proudly offer an alternative voice to the drone of mass media… and it really seems to resonate with people!

Our mission.

Our mission is pretty simple; we offer information that we think will help others see through the lies, and break down the “old” ways of thinking and being. We discuss potential solutions to help rebuild our society from this mess we find ourselves in, and offer commentary on our strange and wonderful lives in this living organism we call Earth. We publish articles that make us feel good, inform, and challenge our our thinking. We speak our truth and offer a platform for other people to speak theirs. We hope that, in some small way, that we contribute to the sustainable, humane and enlightened future we know is on the horizon.

Our Earth – the Living Organism

Your mission.

Of course, we encourage discernment and critical thinking. We certainly don’t believe everything we see, hear and read, and we don’t encourage you to either. We encourage our readers to question any and all information that comes across your path. and if an article you read rings true to you, pass the knowledge on (there are easy ‘sharing’ options for social media on each of our posts). If you have a question, why not post a comment or join the conversation on Facebook? You never know who you might connect with! But most importantly, we encourage you to follow your intuition. Only you know what feels right for you, so why not do it?

2014 is a time for right action.

Revolution is not a thing of the past.

The heart is the new brain.

With our minds informed and our hearts open, we can Wake Up the World. It starts with each of us.

About the founders.

Our names are Ryan and Andy, we live on the east coast of Australia (north of Sydney) and have been together over 13 years now. Although we share many views about “life, the universe and everything”, we didn’t always, and we approach life from totally different perspectives, and backgrounds.

Ryan is freedom seeking, positive, inquisitive, organized, philosophical and technically minded.

Andy is analytical, strong minded, disorganized, compassionate and introspective.

We challenge each other, love each other, and keep the other honest and grounded. And yeah, we drive each other crazy sometimes! It’s a combination that works for us, and we think it’s a good compliment for Wake Up World too.

We knew we shared a purpose when we first came together. We knew it the minute we met. But it took a few years to manifest. Once we started taking ‘risks’, and listening to our inner voices over our expectations and conditioning – that’s when everything changed.

So, while this collective awakening is still a ‘work in progress’, we consider it our role to provide a ‘mouthpiece’ to a variety of information and opinions that best represent our truth, and to create an alternative to the endless deceptions and distractions of mainstream media, the theatre of modern “politics”, and the popular consumer and celebrity cultures.

But it’s more than that. Wake Up World isn’t just about providing an ‘alternative’, rejecting the mainstream, or telling people what’s not working, or why. No, Wake Up World is about solutions too. You already know what’s not working. If you’re anything like us, you already felt that ‘something wasn’t right’ before websites like Wake Up World started talking about why. And that’s why we’re also about the new paradigm. We’re about bringing the ‘alternative’ back into the mainstream, celebrating the good and joyous and beautiful in the world, and reminding ourselves that the simplicity of the “old ways” is actually the “new way” forward.

And our philosophy isn’t just peace love and sustainability, it’s multidimensionality too!

We don’t see the world through rose colored glasses, but ultimately, we are optimists. As anthropologist Margaret Mead once said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has”. We believe we can change the world for the better. Humanity has the ability to create Utopia, and this is crunch time folks! We each need to Wake Up and do our bit. Wake Up World is the where our little bit begins.


Andy and Ryan

Wake Up World. It’s time to rise and shine!

    Hello Ryan & Randy

    I just found your great site following a link about the lady who has lived without money for 15 years…. what a story! Also very grateful to see the piece about banks forging documents re mortgages….

    Want to say that I truly appreciated the “real” About Us where you both gave some info about you….so different from the usual, boring, unimportant stuff which is up on a lot of sites!

    For anyone interested in the lady living without money.. this is my vision also… and there is a great movie called “La Belle Verte” which shows just such a future..

    We can do it people!!!!

    Here’s a link to the first part of “La Belle Verte” for anyone who is interested:


    Remember there are 9 parts… amazing!

    Thanks again Ryan & Randy!

    Love your site! Admire your courage for doing this. It is so true “the truth is hidden in plain view”

    I’m kinda thinking that killing Osama Bin Laden was a good thing. I’m simple like that, though.

    Anyway, still enjoyed reading some of your other articles here, so keep up the good work.

    What you said right here: “But most importantly go with what feels right in your heart.”

    Totally caught my attention because it’s the KEY that most people miss…

    Can’t help it- like one of those “crazy coincidences” (spelling?); for a long time I have expressed the same thinking about our government being just as corrupt as the Mafia and any other organized crime syndicate and using the media as a means to intellectually intercourse those who simply lack in their ability to observe above the average. Can’t wait for global changes to take place- especially the fraud that Capitalism has always been, the fraud that the ‘good ‘ole USA’ has been perpetrating for far too long now! So thanks for the site and I hope I can access it wihtout complication(s).
