I started The Hidden Dominion back in November of 2016. I started it because I couldn’t speak publicly about my beliefs due to employment/schooling. I needed to stay under the radar, like so many other people still do. I wanted a place to share my thoughts, even if not a single person read them. Kind of like an online megaphone platform but with no one around in a 150 miles radius.
Back then, The Hidden Dominion focused on self improvement and societal degradation. One of those stayed (hint: check the menu), and overtime I went more and more toward my main interest: government and its structures (communism, socialism, capitalism, etc). Including the problems evidenced in each.
Now, we’re focused on a lot of things. From gun rights, to cultural degradation, to building a better government, to building a better person – I cover a sh*tton more than before. Yet, I still love it. It’s one of my favorite hobbies.
Why ‘The Hidden Dominion’?
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.
kept out of sight; concealed
I couldn’t speak fully free due to my circumstances, and I figured others couldn’t either. So I built this website with the intention of allowing open communication/dialogue between people in similar positions. It’s why I have an open comment system and an open contribution system.
This was an out-of-sight place that I could speak freely under my control. Since then, it has clearly morphed to many other things. But the original intention was just that: a place to be free.
