James Dean. Davey Crockett. Patrick Henry. Rebellion has long been the heartbeat of American culture, but one guy leaves them all in his dust.
Is rebellion a good thing or a bad thing? It depends on what you’re rebelling against.
Jesus was the greatest rebel that ever lived. But he didn’t rebel ‘for rebellion’s sake’. He picked his targets and took them down.
Be like Jesus, don’t waste your rebellion on something pointless.
He knew the difference between honoring God and roasting the religious leaders when they got goofy and went off the rails.
Doug and Rich, the Warriors and Wildmen team, break down the way to ‘do rebellion right’.
If you’re gonna be a rebel, be a happy warrior, not a screeching scold.
There’s a difference between being a rebel, a jackass and a douche bag. (Know that difference.)
Be BOLD, and nail those colors to the mast.
Be ready for pushback.
Be ready to stand alone, if you have to.
And, a big one that too many forget about know what it’s gonna take to keep that strength and vision charged up so that your rebellion isn’t wasted.

What makes America so different from other nations? Other nations are built around regimes or systems. But America was built from on ideas. From a blank slate.
Built on ideas that are DANGEROUS to tyrants.
That we have God-Given Rights, like Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Dangerous ideas. Like this one: the people, when threatened, have a God-Given right to stand up in defiance of any government that dares threaten any of those rights.
There’s a men’s version…
And a women’s version, too…
Because in America, the bros AND the ladies BOTH have a rich history of badass rowdiness.
