The song, Rebellion by Linkin Park, inspired me to start this thread. Why do you rebel? Do you have a cause, or is it just for the hell of it? Is your cause worth a human life, or is it for your own selfish purposes?

(This is a serious thread. This is not for joking around. Test yourself, can you hold a serious conversation?)

My cause for rebelling is religous freedom and the rights of the unborn. I also seek an end to inter-religous violence, such as the genocide ocurring in the Middle-East. I would not sacrifice any other human life for this but my own, for the lives of others are not mine to give.

I do rebel sometimes, but there's not much reason behind it. It's mostly just sneaking into my mum's bedroom when she's downstairs and taking my tablet to bed.

I believe that rebellion has a lot to do with control. People always want to be in control; sometimes it is a just desire and sometimes it is otherwise. But rebellion comes from a feeling of restraint and a desire of a sense of freedom (and control). Rebellion is so popular because restraint is what autority is for. There are reasons why things are illegal, and why your parents instruct you to behave in the manner that they want you to, which naturally goes against your desires. They tell you not to do what you want to do, and they tell you this for a reason, but you still want to do it, so instead of submitting to authority, people rise against it, challenge it, and fight it.

But as for a country rebelling, it comes from repression from the government or a lust for power. Again, it goes back to control. If they believe that their government worth overthrowing, or that their cause is worth pursuing, then they just might. It depends on how they view the subject (be it either just or otherwise).

I dont call it a rebellion. I call it 'resistance'. Sometimes I feel like the whole world has total control of me and I have no voice. Everything I say is ignored, set aside, given credit to another person or forgotten. I have grown sick and tired of feeling like a puppet in my life, so I decided to 'resist'. Off topic a little, but I had a Red Dead Redemption poster on my door for 2 years. My grandfather tore it down because he said "I was sick and tired of seeing it". I said "Ok." nonchalantly. Next thing on the door, was a picture print out of the French resistance cross. Basically saying that Im tired of being put down and silenced in life. My grandmother acts like a dictator where I live, demanding things from me and having me work for no reward or pay. Making an excuse saying "Food on the table and a roof over your head is your reward". Well their reward is having me over living there period. She tells me "No." for practically everything. I cant hang ut with friends, she invades my privay by reading text messages and asking 20,000,000 questions about my life per day. Im almost 18 years old, and they continue to say that I have no rights at all in the house. True story! They literaly say that "I have no rights". Im so sick of it, that I say that I make my own rights.

I usually dont write this much on a post, but when you speak from the heart, you tend to write a lot about what you feel. What I feel...I want to be liberated, set free. No more chains, no more limits. No one to tell me I cant do something or get what I desire. No one putting me down anymore. I rebel, I resist, I will fight until I will be free! No tyranny, no oppression. I can speak my mind, no one to judge, no one to say otherwise. A voice in life!

Human nature in a nutshell right there! We desire things that are not good for us, but we ignore the advice of those who have lived life and learned the hard way, saying, "You don't know me!" All human beings are unique, but we all have the same desire. That desire is to be happy. But, for some reason, we often look in the wrong places for that happiness.

Mirkrilaar, there have been many days that I have felt the same. No one has the right to ridicule you for your opinions. You have a God-given right to an opinion. However, do not so easily dismiss the opinions of others, either. In order to understand why they disagree with you and put you down, you must first try to understand why they hold different beliefs. After all, not ALL of the people who have athority over you had it given to them on a silver platter. No, many of our elders fought their whole lives to make their voices heard, just as you do. Listen to what they have to say, and ask them why they beleive as they do. Otherwise, you will appear as a bigot, or an "ignorant child," rather than a young adult, by whom the future of the world will be molded. Know what you beleive, know what the people around you beleive, and understand why. This, in my mind, is one of the virtues of a great leader.

Also, remember this the next time you feel that you are being oppressed. Your parents/guardians are the ones who pay the bills. They do feed you, they clothe you, they give you a place to sleep. I'm not saying that they are in the right by not letting you see your friends, but, they are in authority. Trust me, verbally acting out will only make matters worse. The same thing happened with my brother. Except, he could not accept ANY rules but his own. At all. He argued with my Dad and step-Mom on every issue. But, my parents are good people. Their rules are reasonable, and they allow us to express ourselves, as long as that doesn't mean sneaking out past curfew, cutting holes in the window-mesh, or looking at/making pornography. Live their way, and when you move out you can make your own rules, your own mistakes, and your own acheivements. And yes, you WILL make mistakes. You are, in fact, human.

I rebel because I'm not treated the way I want to be treated. I've always treated people the way I wanted to be treated, so I treat them the way they treat me. I'm giving back what they gave. Call me a slut? I call you a slut. Make me mad? I make sure you pay. I hate being angry, and over the years, my fuse has been getting shorter and shorter. The main problem, is my mother. She can be a total bitch. She doesn't allow me to go out and hang with my friends, especially this one girl who I've been friends with years. My dad has never really payed any attention to me. My mum and dad always treat my elder and younger brother, but always forget about me. Whenever I ask for something, it's a straight "No." When they ask for something, it's "Yes, but how much is it?" and no matter what price it is, they get it. I've always been treated poorly by everyone, and I treat with respect, and my love. Over the years, they've learned that they should be nice to me, but only a few people are, such as my boyfriend, my best guy friend, all my best girl friends, and all my other friends.
