Welcome to The Rum Rebellion! You’re probably wondering what the name is all about. Well, there is a very good reason for it. I’ll explain it all in a moment. First, I want to tell you what you can expect from your daily shot of rum, so to speak… The Rum Rebellion is a uniquely Australian voice commenting on the nexus between money, stocks, politics and economics. We have a libertarian view of the world and believe in free speech, individual freedom and personal responsibility. While we also believe in the virtues of free trade and sound money, we recognise that most of the world’s players don’t share this view. We therefore seek to tell you about how the world IS, not how we wish it to be.

Does Freedom Pay?

The result? Here too, freedom paid off. Different sects competed for hearts, minds, and souls…and generally flourished without resort to violence.
