To Be A Rebel

To exist is to defy all that threatens you. To be a rebel is not to accumulate a library of subversive books or to dream of fantastic conspiracies or of taking to the hills. It is to make yourself your own law. To find in yourself what counts. To make sure that you’re never “cured” of your youth. To prefer to put everyone up against the wall rather than to remain supine. To pillage whatever can be converted to your law, without concern for appearance.

Dominique Venner (1935-2013)

Wow! There'a quite a bit to be taken from that particular piece! The Admiral never picks prose that isn't dense with meaning. It's a very interesting quote.
