How Do You Live?

A friend asked me, 'how do you live'? I didn't quite understand the question so I inquired deeper, 'what do you mean'? Her response clarified the question well, 'how do you live being stateless'?

My response was along the lines as 'the same as you, I eat, I sleep, I work, I have good days, I have bad days, really like when I had a

Easy Way Out

Does your Nationality define your identity? Isn't that a cop out? It may be, 'easy' to belong and let someone else define your identity, who you are and what you stand for. But, isn't that kind of belonging, being a 'citizen', or 'being owned' the antithesis to human nature of having a free spirit, free will and the underlying concepts that

Forced to Belong

Personally, I find those who push that one must 'belong' (to a country) or lack some essential element of their identity are very mis-guided. I have no desire to belong. I have no desire to support any politicians and their wars, surveillance and abuse of human rights on any level. It is a complete abdication of my human spirit and individual

Going Stateless

The choice to become voluntarily stateless is taking a life path that has no guide. You'll never know if it is for you without taking that first step. A step you may never be able to return from. I think it is one of the best things I ever did. Would you consider

Stateless Travel Document

One of the reasons I prefer a Stateless Travel Document over a Passport is that I am not obligated to the issuing country and the issuing country is not obligated to me. - Glen Lee

Born Free: Stateless

Human Spirit vs Citizenship: World Citizen? Global Citizen?

I recently ran across a post on Facebook that showed a "passport" indicating the holder was a "global citizen". That is a phrase people often use when they discover I am stateless. "Oh, you're a world citizen".

I responded to a post with a copy of the cover of my "travel document", captioned, "my flag-less (no allegiance to a country)
