"If you are waiting for the government to change, or society to change, or for some program or movement to be successful to find freedom, you will never be free."
Welcome To the Free Individual

Welcome to FREEDOM! Your freedom, if you want it, not sometime in the future, not when some program has been put over or some political agenda has succeeded, but freedom NOW, beginning today!

The "Free Individual" is for those choosing to live their lives as free individuals in this world in their lifetime. If that is what you choose, or are already living as a free individual, the, "Free Individual," is dedicated to your life.

Your Freedom, Beginning Now

There are no other pages on the Internet quite like the "Free Individual." You will not find the principles of securing your own individual freedom and successfully enjoying that life on any Libertarian sites, or Objectivist sites, or anarchist sites, or religious sites, or any so-called Conservative political sites no matter how many times they use the word, "freedom."

The "Free Individual" is not here to convince anyone to seek freedom, however; it is only for those who already know, "free," is the only way they care to live and are serious about achieving and enjoying their own freedom.

Nothing To Join

If an individual wants to be free, they can be, but like all other things in life, it must be earned. That means the individual must learn how to achieve and secure his own freedom, and must be willing to make the effort required to achieve it.

The "Free Individual" can tell you how to find freedom in simple objective terms, but the "Free Individual" is not a personal development site. Do not expect a secret formula for establishing your freedom. Freedom means being free to live your life as you choose, bearing the consequences of your wrong choices and enjoying without limitation the rewards of your right ones, but only you can determine what those right and wrong choices are, and only you can take the action necessary to achieve what you have chosen.

A correct philosophy can provide the principles by which you can determine what right and wrong choices are, but it cannot tell you what specific choices to make or make them for you.

The purpose of the "Free Individual" is to provide useful principles and resources which those seeking freedom may use to achieve their own freedom and thoroughly enjoy it. It is not about convincing anyone to seek freedom, or joining a program or movement, or promoting some freedom producing program. It is about being as free as possible in the real world today, which, like everything else in human life, is something an individual does and accomplishes by their own effort.

A Bit Of History

This site, in some form, has been around since the late 1990s. The Moral Individual [described above] was combined with The Autonomist, "A Free Market of Ideas on Freedom," in early 2000 and included articles by many other authors.

In addition to all daily articles, between 3/23/10 and 4/14/11, 58 articles entitled, "Regi Says," were posted to the Independent Individualist. Those articles are introduced and described here: "Regi Says - 1." ["Regi," refers to my pen name on The Autonomist, Reginald Firehammer.]

The Autonomist ended on October 28, 2011 after seven years.

[NOTE: For anyone interested, there is an Autonomist archive, but only 30 articles are directly available there. On the right-hand side of the page, however, there is a scrolling alphabetical list of all The Autonomist articles that can be directly accessed.]
