Some things in life are important, many things are not. There are issues that are relevant to our happiness, well-being and successful living, and there are those that are simply a distraction. Lawful Rebel is all about addressing what is important, meaningful and real. We all value our health and our happiness. A healthy body is a self-evident prerequisite for a successful life, and its enjoyment is the goal.
Having worked as an airline pilot for 25 years I am familiar with the need to prioritise and avoid distraction. I recall a helpful catch phrase in pilot training, “What is the most important thing I should be doing now?” and consider this to be applicable to life in general.
Through personal experience that I am still ashamed of, I learned the importance of truth. In 2003 my first marriage was failing and I failed to summon the courage to deal with the important issues head on. I ran in the opposite direction and I attempted to fake reality and cheated on my partner. As a reslt I hated myself and I hated what I did, but it ultimately shook me into greater awareness of the importance of truth. Having learned that faking reality always leads to suffering, I developed a passion for truth, a near obsessive committment to discerning fact from fiction in almost every walk of life. My research has lead me into many different subjects and I saw a pattern of disinformation in the world around me.
In my 40’s I became aware of my own health issues but saw that the conventional view of health that my doctor offered – that of treating specific symptoms with drugs – was not addressing the root cause. I took matters into my own hands and enthusiastically studied health and nutrition for many years. Without claiming to have all the answers I have learned that much of the information in the mainstream (the Matrix of mind control) is 180 degrees wrong. My interest has led me through many subject areas and I saw a familiar pattern.
From direct experience in the Crown Court of the UK government, where I represented myself in questioning the claimed jurisdiction of the State, I learned that I live under a form of cloaked tyranny which hides behind fine words, pretence and a veneer of acceptability. I reasoned with the State via the law courts but my arguments were deliberately and systematically ignored. For the ‘crime’ of living peacefully on my own land in a beautiful nest of yurts (pictured below), quietly taking care of myself and my family at no expense to the state and inconveniencing no one, I was prosecuted, evicted from my home and forced under threat of imprisonment to pay £21,500 in fines and costs.
In such a world of tyranny and falsehood, I am compelled to rebel. I will not accept a morality of force and coercion, nor fiction as truth. But there is little point in rebelling against something that is wrong without standing for what is right.
So as I rebel against ignorance I choose to stand for seeking to know; as I rebel against chronic disease I choose to stand for optimal health; as I rebel against evasion and willful blindness I choose to stand for becoming more conscious; as I rebel against the parasite class who seek the unearned I choose to stand for production and independence; as I rebel against coercion I choose to stand for reasoned persuasion and for demonstrating what I know to be right; as I rebel against tyranny I choose to stand for freedom; as I rebel against altruism I choose to stand for rational self-interest; as I rebel against collectivism I choose to stand for individualism; as I rebel against mysticism I choose to stand for reason.
My actions are lawful. I impinge upon no man. I seek only to be left alone, to be free to make my own choices and to act upon those choices. I wish to own and keep what is mine and allow others to own and keep what is theirs. I respect the rights of other men as I demand they respect mine. I am a trader offering value for value in the free market of goods and ideas.
I advocate land ownership because it is the foundation stone of freedom. In the current context of living in England, it is a means of production and a means of security. It is the basis of independence and a healthy satisfying lifestyle. For those who seek to break away from the grim drudgery of conventional modern living, to distance themselves from the insanity of mainstream culture, land ownership offers them a canvas upon which to paint their dreams.
The content of this website is influenced by the magnificent thinking of Ayn Rand – perhaps the greatest mind of the last century. She identified the fundamental conflict between reason as our only guide to knowledge and mysticism as a source of alleged knowledge from somewhere other than reality. Reason and Mysticism are opposites that cannot be reconciled. I highly recommend her work to any seeker of truth and of freedom.
For some years now I have observed what I call the many ‘duff steers’ within the Matrix, the back-to-front and up-side-down-ness of the accepted norms that are swallowed whole by the unthinking masses in their eagerness for cultural fast food. There are so many untruths, from the nonsense of the war on terror to the bogus morality of self-sacrifice. Ayn Rand showed me the root of them all; the false philosophical ideas and premises that slip in through the back door of unwary minds by cultural osmosis. But most importantly of all, she showed me the power of rational thinking, the efficacy of man’s mind and the absolute necessity of reason.
My purpose is to pursue and promote optimal health in mind and body, so that I may fully enjoy my life of creative productivity, and that others may have the information to do the same. I look forward to a truly free society and a community of rational thinking people. I look forward to the day that I no longer need to lawfully rebel.
