“The question isn’t who is going to let me; It’s is who is going to stop me”

Ayn Rand’

The very word rebel makes one think of some kind of revolutionary, dangerous and irresponsible person and even destructive.

I am not sure why one becomes a rebel, and at what cost does one becomes a successful rebel?

Is there any such thing called ‘Good Rebel’ or ‘Bad Rebel’?

Can a good rebel for some, can be a bad rebel for others?

I don’t have answers for this.

Maybe members can enlighten me.

  1. I believe I’m a ‘questioner’. And I also believe that everyone ought to be that… blindly following any rule before one has grokked it is asking for trouble. It’s also vital to continually question whether old rules still have validity in changed circumstances; particularly those rules that have been internalised as ‘good’ when they’re now ‘bad’, yet are still followed purely out of habit.

    1. Thank you, my friend.

      Agree with you.

      Being a ‘Questioner’ is an excellent thing and that is how the art of philosophy evolved.

      Sadly, old habits die hard.

      Sentiments, blind faith, misinformation, fear, misguidance etc can make one hesitate to question more.

      Everyone is struggling and none has time to question and ponder.

      The more one questions, the more one lands into disputes at the cost of peace of mind.

  2. I am definitely a rebel, but a rebel with a cause, which in my perception is a “good” rebel, as opposed to a rebel without a cause, or a “bad” rebel.
    Oxford dictionary definition: a person who rises in opposition or armed resistance against an established government or ruler. That’s what I did in Communist Russia, and for that I was declared an “enemy of the people.”

    1. Interesting to note that you were a rebel with good cause.
      Unfortunate that you were given a name.
      So a rebel in true sense is a person who opposes the govt (as per Oxford Dictionary).
      So for somebody to become a rebel there must be a compelling reason.
      For somebody one is a rebel for others one is a saviour.
      It’s best to leave it to the conscience and judgment of the individual concerned.
      Thank you Dolly.
