I’m not the 99% or the 1%. I just want freedom.

I’m not the 99%, and I’m definitely not the 1%. I’m not in the top 50% or the bottom 50%. I see a problem when we look to generalize ourselves as if we’re all the same and in the same boat. To deny our differences is to deny our humanity. To deny our unique minds.

I’m not the 99%, and I’m definitely not the 1%. I’m different than everyone, but can find common ground with anyone. I see no problem in uniting for similar goals, but I see a problem when we fear being different from each other and seek to revert to being in “the crowd.”

 I’m not the 99%, and I’m definitely not the 1%. I don’t judge opposing ideologies, but I feel our society today is led by corruption that must be stopped. To do that we must first restore individual liberties. I don’t see how big government created the problem and is therefore the solution.

 I’m not the 99%, and I’m definitely not the 1%. We live in the century of the self, but we fear striving from the group. I don’t fear the group and I don’t fear myself. I fear I may not ever live in a truly free society. Being close enough just isn’t good enough for me.

 I’m not the 99%, and I’m definitely not the 1%. I try not to live in a bubble and seek connection to all around me. I do not believe the resources of others should be reserved for all of us. I believe in a free society of compassion. I believe without liberty there can be no compassion.

I’m not the 99%, and I’m definitely not the 1%. I just want freedom.
