My answer to this Question on Quora
Being ‘Ordinary’ is an accomplishment in itself.
To be able to live your life, support a family, retain a job and live with the increasing encroachment of Government regulation and any group who seek to control your life is a dedication to independence and a good life that can no longer be perceived to be ordinary.
As an ‘ordinary’ person I have been subjected to the many hurdles put before me by my own (U.K and Australian) Government’s support of the the supression of my writing by in particular the U.K and Australian Media. Believe me there is nothing ordinary in confronting the State with that which is does not want to hear – yet like many I am to my Government a nobody. I am a Citizen of no consequence.
However, one day I will be able to put my work to 7 billion people. Many of whom will benefit from its application.
Then I will have the money and a Legal Team who will ensure those hurdles are removed and Justice is done.
Hurdles are for the poor and disadvantaged by a system I seek to change and improve.
We all have a story and in our own way we all seek to accomplish great things.
Ordinary has become our Governments who seek the mundane and achieve the mediocre.
