I’m rebellious

I’ve always hated being told what to do.

Even if it’s something I need to do.  Even if it’s something I’ve been trying to do.

A year or two ago I was trying to quit drinking Mountain Dew.  I went to see a nurse practitioner about something else.  She told me to drink less Mountain Dew.  I drank twice as much after she told me that.

Then there’s that obnoxious anti-piracy “public service announcement.”  “You wouldn’t steal a car.”  Oh yeah?

I was dropping my kids off at school this morning.  The principal was making an announcement that students who were being violent would be suspended for a day or two.  This sounds totally reasonable.  But for some reason I resented her for saying it.

I wouldn’t consider myself an anarchist.  But I am a minarchist

I question why a lot of authority figures have any authority.

Some people in power seem to think I’m too stupid to make my decisions. I think they’re too stupid to make my decisions. I’m in a much better position to know what I need than they are.

Who are they to say I have to buy health insurance?  That should be my decision.

I understand the need for certain laws. It’s not okay to hurt other people or violate their property.

I do have a problem with laws that are “for my own good.”

I hate that I work to support a system I don’t believe in.

I hate that I have no real control over where my tax dollars go.

I hate feeling obligated.

I hate feeling powerless.
