…unfortunately, there is no “west” anymore to flee to.
So where can we go instead? Barring easy transportation to Mars, it looks like we’re stuck on Earth for awhile. And as America, and all other formerly-Christian nations, are becoming increasingly intolerable, I decided to take a poll of my Facebook friends to see in which locale they’d prefer living as an alternative to America.
But first, an order of business:
My Facebook friends are honorable guys; a few strongly objected to the idea of leaving America, especially the South. “We’re going to stay and fight! We don’t want to abandon or retreat from the foe!” I suspect, on top of these cavalier sentiments, the relative calm of every day life has lulled many into complacency. After all, those stories of tyranny happen far away and in big cities, right?
There’s a recent outrage – an Oregon man is going to prison for collecting rainwater. Granted, he didn’t hop the proper bureaucratic hurdles, but we “patriots” know there shouldn’t have been bureaucratic hurdles to begin with! And that’s way out in Oregon anyway. So, it’s not “close to home”.
Then there’s the baby maimed by a SWAT team who invaded a house looking for someone who wasn’t even on the premises. But that wouldn’t ever happen ’round here…
How about the brown faucet down south, opened wide, and muddying our demographics? Or how about the government school indoctrination centers? Or how about the trillions spent on daily propaganda disseminated through our pop-culture and government-service-announcements and / or countless other delivery mechanisms? What about the constant targeting of white conservatives and our growing status as moral pariahs? How about the increasing slaughter and rapine of our *elderly* citizens by marauding gangs of blacks?!
How much of this can be ignored? We may never have a SWAT raid near our house, but they are happening more and more. From about 3,000 raids in 1980 to 80,000 today?! My point: this is all “close to home” and could happen to any one of us at any moment.
So – let us do as the Apostle Paul suggests, and make the most of every opportunity and not to get drunk on wine but rather on the Spirit, because the days are evil.
Still – my friends want to stay and fight.
Which brings me to the second order of business:
– We can’t indiscriminately kill every post-Enlightenment modernist. Even if we won that sort of evil battle, we’d still be alone; we’d be worse off than had we faded away to an isolated part of the world. Worse off physically (we’d expend a lot of resources in that war) and worse off morally (how could we sleep with ourselves)?
– So maybe we narrow the scope of our attack and focus only on those self-conscious satanists at the reigns? But who put them at the reigns? In an evil time, when man has turned away from God, evil men will be at the reigns regardless – shoot them all day, countless others are in line waiting to hop into their place. If society was healthy, these same evil men would never get close to the reigns – they’d lurk in the shadows where they belong. Adding onto this point, the greatest dissidents became legends because they had the populace on their side – to hide them, protect them, fund them, and cheer them on. But what if the populace itself is the tyrant?
– Well, (some of my friends might reply) – this means that it’s not a physical war then, but an ideological battle. We’ll change the hearts and minds of everyone! Only … arguments never change people’s minds. I’ve had to learn that the hard way: “A man convinced against his will is of the same opinion still.”
There are other options and a few strategies a brave man might try, but at this point in the conversation, I think it’s safe we at least consider the third order of business.
The third order of business:
Finding a place to live where we can be relatively free of harassment, and avoid the Orwellian oppression of modern Western nations. This is the least violent and least costly option, even though it doesn’t appeal as strongly to the “stay and fight” crowd.
It’s an option I’ve often considered. Granted – I might be fond of it because I have a romantic sense of adventure and my time in the military hasn’t squashed my desire to travel. I spend a lot of time on Google maps, sliding around remote parts of the world, finding interesting places and reading about the inhabitants. What they’re like, what language they speak, and how much the land costs. I’ve recently found a small island off the coast of Panama with ample natural resources and only a hundred (or so) third-worlders living on it, sustaining themselves on whatever they grow in their little gardens. (With my tenacity, I could own that little island in a year … imagine what ten of us might do with it?!)
So – I’m continuing my education in greenhouse science, industrial-sized aquacultures, and other relevant fields (like alternative energy). But I’d also like to narrow in on a location so I can tailor my efforts to that specific environment. Learn the local language, study the fish and plant life there, etc.
Back to my Facebook poll.
I’m going to offer the same poll here, modified slightly to reflect the Facebook results. Surprisingly, “Switzerland” got the most votes on Facebook (7), so I’m listing it as the first option. Iceland, Norway, and Uruguay all tied for second with three votes apiece. Russia came in third with two votes. Romania, Mexico, and the Netherlands tied for third with one vote apiece.
I’m making my own poll here as well. We’ll see what the blogosphere crowd has to say on the matter.
1. These involve a little courage and a lot of stupidity – I have both, and in that proportion. Grandstanding on a national level, with narrative manipulation in mind, might convince the Spirit to move through the populace again and end this time of judgment. Still – it’s best to be a dual citizen and have a robust “escape” plan, especially for women and children. Get them safe in an isolated place first then worry about “fighting” (via propaganda stunts) later….which still brings us back to the third order of business discussed above…
