Deviation is a philosophy for going astray of the norm. We believe freedom is a pursuit. By scouring existing social structures for seams or cracks that can be repurposed, applying new behaviors or governing logics to conditions already in place, our aim is to actively engage in this pursuit through inspired daily action. We strive not to wipe the slate clean nor to blindly adhere to existing customs simply because they already exist. Instead, by momentarily going astray of the expected behaviors imposed by custom, laws, or rules, we reinforce a daily practice of inspired Self-rule. The mission of Deviation is simply to point a finger toward a destination: Self-rule through conscious evolution, and to likewise provide a series of principles useful for pursuing and expressing Self-rule on a daily basis. The Deviant’s Struggle is therefore the struggle for continuous Deviation.
