About The Hidden Dominion
Who Am I?
I go by the name Avtomat, but most people online just call me Avi.
I’m an economist, a staunch gun rights advocate, and a guy that spends way too much time studying things very few people care about.
I write on things that interest me or that I find important to educate on. They typically align with whatever problems I find in our society.
Some common topics include: economics, bioterror, culture, philosophy, and firearms. So you’ll definitely be getting a mixed bag of topics from me.
My real-life initials are AK. My favorite gun is the AK. It just fit.
I also seen a double meaning through it. The AK47 stands for:
Автомат Калашникова, or the English pronunciation: “Avtomat Kalashnikova“.
Which is, of course, ‘Kalashnikov’s Automatic Rifle’.
And Automatic means:
Something machine-like – involuntary, a natural reflex
Writing and researching to me is an addiction, it’s something I have always done and will always do; it is automatic.
Thus, Avtomat fit perfect.
What’s The Hidden Dominion?
When I first started this website, the pinnacle focus was on privacy rights and governmental structures. I’ve since expanded it to include some other areas of interest, however, the original meaning is still the same.
In the modern age, it seems that many of us lose ourselves, and our personality, to public pressure.
Whether it is by walking the fine line of “advertiser friendliness”, or by utilizing third-party websites/software that have asinine restrictions on free speech, or simply by being around very politically-correct bosses/leadership.
This pressure is where the name came from.

The Hidden Dominion is my own bastion of liberty. A place I can speak freely about anything that interests me – and hopefully interests others as well. It’s a personal ‘Dominion’ that I created to utilize the liberties we have in the free world.
Part of my reason for doing this website is not only to educate others on interesting pieces I find along the way, but to also personally grow as a writer. Over the years I hope to eventually get to the point where HD has the power to communicate a little piece of knowledge to the next generation(s).
Thus, my goal here is threefold: To help people in bettering themselves, to see the importance of liberty in the same vein as I do, and to likewise pass this knowledge onto others.
