About Wake Up World

A  labor of love.

For years, we watched the power-brokers of global governments tighten regulation  in the name of “freedom”,  tighten the censorship of opinions that contradict their agenda, and feed the public  “news” that seems  invented solely to manipulate, control and instill fear. Finally, like many of you, we felt overwhelmed, angry and in disbelief, and  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 inconsistencies in the official stories of  the  world’s governments, seemingly spun  in the name of maintaining control and supporting a progressively corporate-focused 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 1.3 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 a range of  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 people to live better, see through the lies, and break down the old ways of thinking and being that no longer serve our society. We examine  what we perceive to be the most important problems in our failing society today, we  discuss potential solutions and alternatives that might help us to rebuild our society from this mess we find ourselves in, and offer commentary on our strange and wonderful lives in  this living, energetic organism we call Earth, the Universe and the Multiverse.

We publish articles that make us feel good, that inform and challenge our our thinking and preconceptions. We speak  our truth and offer a platform for other people  to speak theirs. And we hope that, in some small way, 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.  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? And KEEP doing it.

2015 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 (south of Brisbane) and have been together for over 14  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’ in our lives, and listening to our inner voices over our expectations and conditioning — that’s when everything changed. The Universe conspired  to clear our  path. And in the bigger picture, we believe it will do  so for all of us – if we learn to trust the process.

So, while this  collective awakening is still a ‘work in progress’, we consider it our role to offer  a ‘mouthpiece’ to a variety of views  and opinions that best represent our truth, and to offer an  alternative to the endless manipulations and distractions of mainstream  media, the theatre of modern “fear politics”, the rise of the pharmaceutical symptom-based “health” model, the  popular consumer and celebrity cultures, and the overtly masculine (unbalanced) spiritual energy embodied by the mainstream.

But it’s more than that. Wake Up World isn’t just about providing an ‘alternative’, or challenging  mainstream thinking, or telling people what’s we think is not working, or why. No, Wake Up World is about potential 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 was before unprecedented illness and environmental destruction became as apparent as it has. 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. Although we’re fast marching in the other direction, humanity  has the ability to turn around, and to create Utopia  –  and frankly, this is crunch time folks! We each need to Wake Up, look within for the answers, and do our bit for humanity’s future.

Wake Up World  is the where our little bit begins.

  • James

    Congrats on your work. I’m of like minding and think that the best way to fight is to spread the word. I’m looking to do something similar on my end.

    Let’s wake up the people.

  • Light Worker

  • 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!

  • So artful to have found your website. What’s breath of fresh clean air! Thanks and keep up the awesome work

  • HI Guys,

    awesome website!

    I am trying to do my little bit too: http://www.ecohustler.co.uk/

    The global brain is growing!

    All best wishes,


  • Debbie Ruston

    Thrilled to have found your site! Big congrats on taking a stand to move past traditional, brainwashing media and waking people up!

  • Cecilia

    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.

  • Chrisitna

    Thankful for having the opportunity to be connected to this site. I truly believe in everyone’s right to the truth and most importantly their untainted freedom.

  • Bea

    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…

  • Charles E. Woods II

    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).

  • Ginny

    Thank you all for this labor of love… thought this type of website would never manifest. You’re doing a admirable job ! Let’s make it work !

  • Jay

    Gangster website, finally a news website I can read without wanting to rip my eyes out. Down with the NWO!

  • I’ve been reading more and more posts on here and will continue to do so. Yes, a labor of love to show the truth. Will take me some time to read it all but that time is well spent! I will also help to promote the site as much as is in my power, so that anybody who want to know, can know and do something about it. I do believe in walking my talk and have done so for a few decades, a lonely walk at times, but with Wake Up World it seems even more worthwhile going ahead to make a difference! Thanks for this great site!

  • Jamie

    I have spent a good portion of the past two years attempting to research the cause of my Hashimoto’s and other autoimmune issues creeping in for me as they also have for several siblings. You already know what I found wasn’t pretty. When I found your site, it was as if a big blanket of comfort from home had settled on my shoulders and I now find confirmed sources thanks to your work. You are angels to me. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

  • CGM

    I love the site… Great work, very resourceful. Thank you.

  • Great job !! Thank you

  • Mina Reyes

    Been wondering if the journey to the moon by Apollo 11 was also a hoax. If it isn’t, why there hasn’t been any subsequent mission when more hi tech equipment and gadgets are now capable as compared to the year 1969? So far the satellite that hovers above us sending weather updates and google maps is the only manmade vehicle yet but has quite a limited travel span. What could have happened to Apollos 12, 13, 14, and so on?


  • Norman

    Was just referred to your site through a friend’s FB post of one of your articles. I really like the concept and your approach.

    I have looked around your site a little and do not see anything about a WuW Facebook page and how to become a friend (rather than the share button on each article). This would be the handiest way for me to receive and share updates when you publish new articles.

    Disclaimer: It may well be on the your site and I’m just not seeing it. I tend to not see things right in front of my nose–just ask my wife. 😉

    Awesome site!


    • Wake Up World

      Hi Norman,

      There is a FB box on the right hand side of every page where you can like our page directly from the site 🙂

  • Barbara

    Thank you ‘Wake Up World’ I find your articles, stimulating, interesting, and very informative. Each one I read, I share, even though some of my ‘friends’ probably think I’m crazy. I hope you continue for as long as there is a need. My very best wishes to everyone involved. And again Thank You.

  • Allen

    Your Wake Up World stone has created ripples on the still waters of complacency. I hope the ripples grow to tsunamis of consciousnesses-raising awareness. The world needs you…most just don’t know it yet! Best regards and God speed!
