Given the influx of new members joining the BestGore.com community, I have decided to publish this simple, but important reminder of the true purpose of the website. To avoid misunderstanding, and misquoting – which tends to happen often – let me clarify what Best Gore is, and what it isn’t.
Many, many years ago, Greek philosopher Socrates said: “I cannot teach anybody anything; I can only make them think.” This is in stark contrast to the modern education system, which has for its primary purpose to prevent the inquisitive minds from thinking for themselves and seeking the answers to questions on their own, and instead wants them to accept the information they are provided as absolute truth. I’ll elaborate more on this later. For now, let me just say that at Best Gore, we are the Socrateses, not the modern schools. We don’t focus on teaching you anything, but on making you think for yourself, for that will lead you to real answers.
Let me start by clarifying that Best Gore does show you the truth, but if you interpret everything you read at Best Gore as the ultimate answer to all the world’s questions, then you have completely misunderstood the idea behind Best Gore.
Best Gore shows you the truth, because we show you the videos and photos of events that happen around the world without censorship. But it is always, and should only be up to you to interpret the meaning behind them yourself. Mark, founder of the website said it best, and said it on multiple occasions. Truer words have never been spoken, so keep that in mind regardless of whether you’re on Best Gore or elsewhere:
Verify, double verify, and trust no one but your own gut!
If you come to Best Gore with the attitude that everything others say is a lie, and everything Best Gore says is the truth, then you have completely misunderstood what Best Gore is trying to tell you. The moment you let somebody else tell you what you should believe, is the moment you surrender your individuality, and personal liberty. And thus, unless your own gut tells you that this seems to be the right path, you should always presume bias.
Every reporter is biased. Every single one. I don’t care which medium you watch, which website you browse – there will be some degree of bias in every single article you read.
Best Gore is no different. Anyone who tells you otherwise should be subject to utmost doubt because he’s clearly trying to mold you into something.
At Best Gore, we’re up front and straightforward with you, as we’ve always been. This commitment is further exacerbated through personal honesty reflected in each individual author’s articles. The videos and photos we publish are always shared without being altered by us in any way. We do add watermarks, but never try to obstruct or change the message the content shared is intended to deliver. Watermarks are an unfortunate side-effect of Best Gore being a web based property, and thus subject to heavy plagiarism. But we never decide for you which part of what’s published gets shown, and which doesn’t.
That’s as far as content is concerned. Each author who publishes content, also accompanies it with their personal commentary. Thus, each article is a personal expression of this individual author. Best Gore has always distinguished itself from other website by sincere commentary.
This sincerity resulted in ongoing hate-mail and death threats, but also a lot of support and loyalty. We have simply always called it the way we’ve seen it. It would be easier to push the popular ideology by saying things like “thank you for your service“, or “the criminal citizen clearly assaulted the officer’s fist with his face…“, which would make us popular with the massive herd of sheep, and spare us of all the attacks against the site and our persons, but that’s not who we are.
We chose integrity, honor and dignity, instead of striving to win the popularity contest by forcing upon ourselves the opinion of the majority, even if it meant actual attacks on one’s person and liberty. Mark has been caged for staying true to the principle of honesty and integrity and stays true to it despite the ongoing witch-hunt by the Canadian regime.
In the spirit of his sacrifice, I appeal to you to remember his words: “Verify, double verify, and trust no one but your own gut.”
The sheep live to impress, the free men live to express. Just because you said I couldn’t, I will! You can attack me, beat me, torture me, and kill me – you will have me dead, but you’ll never have me enslaved.

Now, I understand that this is easier said and done. Afterall, we have all gone through decades of systematic indoctrination. We’ve been bred and molded to be the sheep. Since the moment we could comprehend simple facts, we’ve been told to accept authority as truth, instead of truth as authority. It is not easy to snap out of it, which is why I’m not gonna hold it against any of you if you did in fact misunderstood the purpose of Best Gore.
Each of us spent years in schools, absorbing information from teachers, who were trained to be the recyclers of information, forced onto them by previous generation of recyclers of information. You read a student textbook, and every statement in it is definitive. They tell you that this is how it is, and you’re told these definitive statements year upon year, until you become nothing more than a storage container for information they provide you with, not even comprehending the idea of scrutinizing the definitive statements you are force-fed with.
To give you an idea of what I’m taking about, think about a history lesson. When you are “taught” about the Holocaust, you are told definitive statements that this is what happened, this is why it happened, this is what it lead to, etc, etc. At no point during the history class are you encouraged to scrutinize the information you are provided, question whether it could have happened differently, or asked to come to your own conclusion on the matter.
And likewise, since the young age, if you somehow challenged the idea of becoming the storage container for definitive information determined to be such by someone else, then you’d be subjected to ridicule at best, but more likely, to punishment. Your parents would be called in and pressured to do something about you, being told you had no respect for authority, you’d never mount to anything, and are thus on the way to becoming a criminal.
The education system is created to mold you into an obedient sheep, a supporter of the system, and attacker of all those who somehow snap out of it and start thinking for themselves. The sheep always get the praise, because they are easily manipulated and controlled. On the other hand, the inquisitive individuals are ridiculed and prosecuted.
Now let me get back to the quote by Socrates I mentioned at the beginning of the article: “I cannot teach anybody anything; I can only make them think.” I also told you at the beginning that I’m writing this article to clarify what Best Gore is, and what it isn’t. Hopefully, after getting this far down the article, you understand that the purpose of the website is not to give you answers, but to inspire you to ask questions.
The schools indoctrinate you by force-feeding you the definitive statements. We here at Best Gore want you to learn by being investigative, and encourage you to search for the answers yourself.
Best Gore is your access to resources about the happenings around the world, but it’s your individual enquiries that will lead to meaningful discoveries. Access to the resources provided by Best Gore encourages debate, through which each individual can form their own conclusions. Mark is being prosecuted because the powers that be don’t want you to think, question and contemplate. They want you to live with the blinders on, because that’s how they can keep your mind enslaved. And an enslaved mind is easy to dominate and control.
Best Gore wants you to be in control of your own mind. If you allow someone else to control your mind, even if it’s Best Gore itself, then you have completely failed to understand the goal of this website. Remember: verify double verify, and trust no one but your own gut.
