At zenruption, we’re bringing you, the average person, the latest fresh and original content that not only inspires, engages, and entertains, but also navigates a world of complexity and “zenrupts” existing cultural norms, markets, political ideologies, economic and social structures, and business models. Our goal is to modernize the world and remove legacy mindsets of oppressive models and expectations.
zenruption is about empowering all corners of society and rejecting the idea that some people are entitled to enslave others, be it explicitly or implicitly, and having a really fucking good time while destroying the the status quo in this short existence.
We've assembled a team who have worked with the prevailing powers and succeeded- or just totally taken them by surprise. We provide fresh content, challenging the current paradigms in an effort to mobilize everyone to participate in the creation of a more thoughtful world. We post everything from our current favorite drink recipes to cutting-edge tech trends to new business paradigms and combine that with some zen wisdom and tell everyone else to fuck off if they can't take on a worldview that is compassionate and realistic.
Yeah, that might only be a few of you.
