No doubt you have heard the expression, “going rogue.” If you don’t know what that expression means, here is a simplified definition. To go rogue is to refuse to follow orders. A person who goes rogue acts on his own without the assistance from anyone. In fact, a person who goes rogue usually acts differently from what others expect. Usually when a person goes rogue, he or she doesn’t care what others think. The aim is to pursue one’s own interests.
Going rogue normally means to do what one wants to do without considering the desires of others. It is often used when a person stops carrying out orders given to him by someone else, and he no longer adheres to protocol. Instead, the person does something else out of his own volition. Someone who goes rogue acts independently and wayward from the usual group, generally acting in an outrageous or abnormal manner.
Sarah Palin wrote a book called “Going Rogue: An American Life.” She was probably thinking about the Republican Party establishment and leadership. In other words, she didn’t want to live by or lead by anybody’s rules but her own.
Is there anything you have gone rogue about? Do you know someone who has gone rogue, or who is going rogue now?
