Learn About Miles Franklin, the Creator of Become An Individual
I was raised in an environment that discouraged thinking, rational thought, loyalty, and generosity. When I left, I was shocked to discover that most of society functioned with a dog eat dog attitude where people placed the petty wants of “society” above the pains and needs of the individual.
I concluded I did not want to be dependent to, or the victim of, the whims of society. Additionally, I did not want my life and my happiness to be determined or dictated by the collective.
Therefore, I started this blog because I want to help people do four things:
- Safeguard yourself, those you love, and your resources against the whims of society
- Reject and avoid toxic people and ideas
- Empower yourself to pursue virtues and your personal goals
- Engage in community and learn to serve others fully and effectively
Through this blog, I want to equip everyone with the intellectual, mental, and physical tools necessary to accomplish the goals outlined above.
Above all else, I believe that we improve society and the world by strengthening individuals. By cultivating personal growth, we ensure long-term happiness, stability, and success.
What is Individualism?
Individualism is a social theory that values the individual above the needs, wants, and desires of the collective and the state. Politically, it is expressed in libertarianism, minarchism, and anarcho-capitalism. Economically, it is expressed through capitalism.
How long have you been an individualist?
I was introduced to the idea of self-ownership through Ayn Rand’s book The Fountainhead when I was in high school. From there, I consumed the works of other Objectivists before branching out to Libertarians, Minarchists, and Anarcho-Capitalists.
What is Capitalism?
The voluntary exchange of goods and services owned by private entities and individuals. Capitalism is based on voluntarism while all other economic systems are based on coercion.
