The CMFF draws upon a variety of information and resources to present and justify its effort. The Rational Argumentator, an online magazine championing the Western principles of Reason, Rights, and Progress, supplies numerous articles and statements to explain the ideological, scientific, and practical aspects of the CMFF effort. Donors to the CMFF and all other ideological supporters are welcome to write and contribute articles, poems, works of fiction, or statements of support of their own, which TRA and CMFF shall endeavor to render publicly available on the Internet and elsewhere.
