Do we go or do we Stay?

Do we go or do we Stay?

By: Jesse Mathewson

It is apparent to many, including, the government, that this current society and state is collapsing quickly. Financially it is ruined, there is no undo button, there is no rewind and most importantly the hole has become far too large to climb out of. So what to do?

Expatriation to more free locations may seem like a wonderful thing to do. Of course, with a little study and a lot of back and forth communication with others who already have, this may pose a problem for the average American in today's society. Most locations overseas require an individual to be independently wealthy or have a master’s or doctorate in an active contributing manner. This means that many locations will require that you already be employed upon arrival.

Of course, you can go to Great Britain, France, Germany or Spain. However, they are far from better off than the United States. In fact, each of these locations will pose its own problems and you will soon find that you are ostracized or worse off than you were before. Great Britain is crime ridden, one in four people will have an act of violence committed against them, and beware, if you attempt to defend yourself, you will be buried in their criminal justice system. France, Spain and Germany are not much better.

South and Central America are options, however, thanks to your neighbors’ incessant calls for “action against them dirty illegals,” you will be seen as the enemy. The Untied States has, as with every other third world locale around the planet, ensured that to be an American in a foreign place is a bad thing. So practice your Canadian accent and see a good paper maker for some Canadian papers. I personally love South America, however, I have had over two decades to build relationships while the more recent individuals who may move down are still going to be holding onto their Americanized preconceptions about these places. (You are in someone else's home/ country, so act like it.)

New Zealand is available as is Switzerland, however, as I mentioned above some places require you to be gainfully employed (not a temp job or hostel inspector). These are two that require that, of course if you have hundreds of millions in gold bullion and are able to lubricate the local process, that shouldn't be an issue. India is a decent option, contrary to popular belief India is quite a bit more advanced than many would have you believe. Regardless, they have no extradition and are not exactly happy with the United States currently. So if you can offer them something in exchange for work and living requirements, you may be in luck. A last option is Africa, roll a die and pick whichever location pops up first. The only downfall with Africa is that with very few exceptions they are ruled by the flavor of the week, meaning you will need to keep up on your local bribes and warlords as one week to the next it may vary as to who you are paying.

In the end I would recommend that unless you live in a large urban area, Phoenix, Tucson, Houston, Miami, New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles etc., stay where you are. If you live in or within 30 minutes of a large urban area, move immediately. The benefits you believe you have or gain by remaining in an urban area are quickly negated if you simply take a quick unfiltered look around. Move to a rural area. Sure your commute may now be three times as long, but your family’s safety has been far more solidified. Small towns, relatively sparse populations and large amounts of land between people, is the best way to approach the possibility of complete collapse. I hear the phrase, “safety in numbers” from hundreds of people every day, and I agree. However, safety is not in masses of people; safety is in a few stalwarts who know what they are doing.

If you are serious about surviving, then think about your current situation, look at every bad thing that could happen, and look at your ability to fix that. Remember in a city, surrounded by sheep and living in a cookie cutter house or worse an apartment building, you are guaranteeing your quick demise. Sheer numbers will overwhelm you once they realize you are the only one on the block with food. Do not underestimate the potential for sheer violence that most humans harbor when in times of extreme need. Move now - that city you live in is a trap, it is your death certificate and you have signed it and dated it by refusing to see this.

People like myself, living in relatively unpopulated areas, are going to be slightly safer. Notice I say slightly, not because the risk of showing my hand to others is greater, but because people in your cities will run out of food and start roaming. All I will have is more time to prepare, and a better view of the coming problems. So do we go or stay? For me the answer is stay, I cannot afford my own island or even a chartered rowboat to a vacant one. So I must make do with what I have and concentrate my efforts on showing my neighbors now that we can survive anything if we just work together.

Free the mind and the body will follow.

Jesse Mathewson is the author of the popular blog, and provides commentary to many varied places based on a background that includes education in criminal justice, history, religion and even insurgency tactics and tactical training. His current role in his community is as an organizer of sorts and a preacher of community solidarity. As a voluntaryist and atheist his life is seen as crazy and wild by many, though once they get to know him most realize he is a bluntly honest individual who will give you the shirt off his back if he believes it is necessary to help you.
