That’s me at 36. I’m 64 now, but when you get to be my age, you’re still 36 inside.
My parents were British Protestants, both teachers, who liked to travel. Born in Canada in the late ’50s, I was the third of five children. My Irish father taught in various schools, working across North America and the United States, building houses as he went. Years later, we moved to Australia, where dad taught for some years before becoming a candidate in a political party he helped begin. Militant unions and hippies eventually overtook the party, and I remember dad saying they were worse than the Germans he fought in WWII as a paratrooper. My English mother was kind and warmhearted, and while both my parents were great in their different ways, they supported the Left. My father finally saw the light in his mid-sixties, becoming a conservative for his last three decades.
After college, I worked for various newspapers. As a young married man with several children, I started a company in 1986 that still runs today. We moved to the US in the ’90s before being offered a contract to work in Queensland. My company went online in 1996, employing Americans to serve American businesses.
Since 1985, when I read Atlas Shrugged, I have fought to lower governments’ size and support Laissez-Faire free markets. Rob Larrikin is a pen name. According to today’s outrage pundits, those who tell the truth are deplorable larrikins.
