At Least I Didn’t Breed!
I am 48 years old and the last three years have forced me to conclude that Americans are too stupid, narcissistic and lazy to participate in anything more than abject decline/collapse from here.
In short, I have officially given up on America. I don’t want to be a part of it any more. Today my only honest desire is to a.) prepare for decline and eventual/unexpected collapse and/or b.) emigrate -- to e.g. New Zealand, Australia, Canada, etc.
I don’t know that I will actually emigrate, because I hold mortgages on three homes in MT that I probably cannot sell and won’t try renting from afar. Two of the homes have become increasingly difficult to rent here under the Great Recession. Unlike most profligate, idiot Americans, we do have some money set aside -- and Federal SSA and the State of MT pay my wife a small monthly retirement -- for the time being – until the inevitable pension defaults and “entitlement reforms” begin, when those promises too will be broken. I still have a “good” job -- in the defense/aerospace industry – which I frankly just resent most of the time. In short, every American “promise” I accepted at face value has proven to be a lie – an advertisement to induce participation in this corrupt and dehumanizing system of little more than endless economic, military and intellectual exploitation.
Thus, at some point in the near future I intend hopefully to “retire”, drop out and decouple from “the grid.” From there I anticipate increasingly walling off our home from the street/world, astutely guarding our income and assets (as self-insurance, because – obvious reasons -- we can’t trust anyone to do that for us) and awaiting death, hopefully merciful, death.
The die is cast. The lie is over. Why pretend otherwise? The best that any American citizen can do from here is “fake it” in terms of humanity. But there is no way to be human in America. Frankly, I see now there probably never was.
At least I didn’t breed!
