The best way to tell you about Unmuzzled is to break it down into What, Why, When, Where, Who and How. In fact that’s the way we believe is best to tell you about anything!
What is Unmuzzled?
Unmuzzled is a mindset, a movement and a journey. We exist to help you expand your consciousness infinitely!
But we believe that it is always a good practice to take the time to try and understand any situation, topic and even word from all perspectives. That being the case the best way to truly understand what unmuzzled is, it is best to first understand what muzzled is.
- A restraint on free movement, speech or expression: a. they had a muzzle put on their high spirits. b. he tried to muzzle the opposition.
- To prevent from being heard or noticed: the bully continues to muzzle his victims.
This being the case we can expand upon the opening sentence and elaborate say that in essence “Unmuzzled” is the right to free movement, speech or expression, the right to being heard or noticed, the right to not be silenced, to not be bullied or intimidated.

We believe that and every member of the public and online digital community environment user DESERVES and has a RIGHT to be Unmuzzled, to be able to speak up, speak out and be themselves without fear of attack or reprisal and our goal is to support those individuals and organisations that find themselves placed in a situation where another person, group or organisation is trying to muzzle them.
As our traditional value systems continue to change and morph fluidly and the internet continues to penetrate into every corner of human society and of the economy, as citizens of the world we all have a responsibility to champion standards of behavior that are clearly defined and realistic in order to create a solid foundation for renewed growth and beneficial interaction of community members both in real life and via the use of the Internet.
Why Unmuzzled? Because without genuine solidarity the strong silence the weak in the face of apathy and ignorance.
When you grow up you tend to get told the world is the way it is and your life is just to live your life inside the world. Try not to bash into the walls too much. Try to have a nice family life, have fun, save a little money.
That’s a very limited life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact, and that is – everything around you that you call life, was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use.
The minute that you understand that you can poke life and actually something will, you know if you push in, something will pop out the other side, that you can change it, you can mold it. That’s maybe the most important thing. It’s to shake off this erroneous notion that life is there and you’re just gonna live in it, versus embrace it, change it, improve it, make your mark upon it.
I think that’s very important and however you learn that, once you learn it, you’ll want to change life and make it better, cause it’s kind of messed up, in a lot of ways. Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again.

Why was unmuzzled created?
While Unmuzzled and the mission we aim to fulfill was born of a lengthy display of organised, systematic Cyberbullying against single father of 5, on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia it has grown to be a whole lot more. We are now intent on unmuzzling anyone, anything, everything and everyone.
