Re: A Warning: The Window Is Closing...

I am posting this in the general section because it applies to at least a little bit of everything.

The world is changing. It is changing so much that we are undergoing the greatest, most massive transfer of wealth and power that the world has ever seen. If you are a young male in the united States, as I am, then you well know that this is not your time. Or at least it isn't here in the West where feminism and misandry will crush your morale and dreams in a moment. If you are an older man, then your options have been greater in the past and you probably still have some distinct advantages over younger men. You've probably had a decent job, or are better able to make money, and you have probably saved a good bit over the years as well, or you may get disability or other money that allows you to travel or expat.

But if you are around your twenties, then you probably don't have lots of opportunities as far as appealing to the domestic job market. Unemployment remains stubbornly high and probably is not going to get better as outsourcing and technology work together to make fewer jobs. (I am not criticizing technology, though. It is a way to do things easier, more efficiently. Outsourcing is really the much larger problem. And there are other factors I won't worry about right now.) Even if you have a job, it is probably pays poorly, is not in your field of study/training, and is probably just another completely expendable, make-work, non-productive customer service job. And this is what most jobs are now: interchangeable, pointless customer service gigs that don't amount anything useful. I was in such a job for a year and a half, and quit about six months ago. I decided that even if I failed, trying to get on another path was the only way to go, lest I be trapped in a shithole forever. Better to try what you care about and fail that intentionally give yourself over to mediocrity, useless jobs, and dumb-shit bosses.

The American economy is therefore a joke. Nothing is worth anything - including you! (To the system, that is.) Hey, it is great if you have a degree, but if you don't then don't worry about it to much. Domestically it could even help you not to. It is getting worse out there. Some states in the U.S. are in death spirals so to speak - there are more takers than producers. (If you are one of those gaming the system because you see how pointless and zero-sum it is, then more power to you. Double points to men doing this as an active insult to the feminist/misandrist system.)

It is not going to get better and is in fact getting worse for men, particularly young men. And this brings me to my main point:

I think the window for escape is closing.

This is something I had put in the back of my mind for a long time. I kept putting off plans and sticking with a pointless job because I feared the risks and failures of trying to escape. Despite the fear of my life becoming some existential death spiral, fear proved powerful enough to stop me for a long time. Now, even though I am taking action and doing things I've never done before to help myself, I am seeing signs that it is becoming more difficult to escape. I fear that window of opportunity is closing.

The political/economic situation gets worse by the month. It has been mentioned on this forum before how the old Soviet Union eventually prevented its citizens from leaving. Here in the U.S. we know (if you are initiated, which it is safe to say many of us here are) that the government and society are already totalitarian in some ways. We know about the freedom killing laws such as the "Patriot" Act and the NDAA. We know generally about what the government plans to do in the face of true economic collapse. The cost of getting a passport is higher now.

There are roadsigns that show us that the window is closing.

When I quit my job, I knew exactly why I had and what I wanted to do. I wanted to write. I had wanted to for a long time, even collecting ideas for novels for years without using them. I finally started and have written two novels. I am working on a third one and am inching my way towards going to a traditional publishing house for a book deal. I wanted to make money more quickly, so I started freelancing. In an emergency, I could turn this sort of thing into a full-time work-at-home job. These are good things, but they do show how precarious things are and why such plans and directions are needed.

I worked on these things for a while, getting a good start. Finally, in November and December last year, I began to look into going abroad for a job teaching English as a foreign language. This was of course to be my main method of escape. First, a minor sort of financial independence and doing things I thought worthwhile with my life. Second would be literal, physical, geographical escape. I applied for jobs in China and got an offer. After going through about a month of paperwork and such, I was informed that due to insufficient qualifications I could not get a visa and work permit even though the school really wanted me to come teach there. I was told that as of this year the requirements are becoming more enforced. China is not known for heavy requirements and outside of its big three cities, not known for heavy enforcements of them.

A few months earlier it might have been no problem.

This is just a little sign and I am applying for more so I think things will work out. But things have a very precarious feel to them. Things could go awry at anytime and if they do I will not likely see it coming.

So this is the time. There are warning signs about. Don't ignore them. This forum can get bogged down on people asking too many questions that simple posts on a message board cannot answer. Direct experience will matter above any responses you get to a question here. Pick a place or places to research, make your best choice with available information, and then go. Have a back up plan. Go work somewhere but work on other things and other plans just in case you end up somewhere you don't think you can stay long term. Thinking is good, but over-thinking is not. It's the difference between using your brakes to get through traffic safely and slamming on your brakes so that you cause a ten car pileup wreck.

The U.S. is getting to be a worse place to be all the time. Other countries are getting harder to get into. The days of being "special" are over. The West is a spiritual, romantic, and existential death trap.

I think eventually it will become a literal death trap.

Watch for the signs and act accordingly.

The window for escape is closing.


+100

GREAT post.

I am going to follow in your footsteps. Writing fiction, writing e-books, writing service, TEFL.

Thanks and let me know how I can return the favor.

PS I wanted to add that my grandparents got out of the brand-new Soviet Union in 1922, when it was still possible to leave. Things changed shortly thereafter.

I think it was the 1970's before people could leave again.

If you raise your daughter in a western country, SHE WILL BECOME A WHORE LIKE MOST WESTERN FEMALES WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT. She will simply become a product of the public education system and the mainstream media, movies, and music.

The only way to protect her from these destructive influences is to physically prevent her exposure to them, which means home-schooling her and not having a single television, radio, or computer in your household. But by doing these things, you will obviously disadvantage her in other ways and may even do more harm than good.

The only way is to raise her in non man-hating culture, and i'm not sure if such a thing exists anymore as cultures all over the world are being exposed to and influenced by westernism.


Clearly you know what needs to be done. You just can't let go of the past.

ABCDavid mentioned Lot. You're actually like Lot's wife. The escape path (you mentioned two escape paths, both excellent) is clear. But you just can't let go of Sodom.

You're not alone. Most Americans are like you.

My dad could argue that things were worse in his time. He was my age in the late 70's. But I think that's the wrong distinction. It's like asking, "Is it worse to live during a time of war or after your side has lost the war?" I feel like I'm living in the latter type of society.

And how will we know when the New World Order is upon us? Will the president of the "New World" officially declare it to us?

Or, will the world leaders remove their disguise and reveal their reptilian nature?

You tin-foil hatters need to be quarantined on a deserted island, where you can keep your hysteria amongst yourselves.


Hello Clowny, did you realize that former President George H.W. Bush mentioned TPTB's goal of the New World Order well over 200 times in his four years as the leader of this country? Barack Obama mentioned it during his visit to the David Letterman show a few years back. Henry Kissinger also backed Obama to bring in the NWO during his presidency. This is not my opinion but actual facts that you can research.

Should Bush, Obama and Kissinger be wearing tin-foil hats too?


Great post. In fact the vast majority of US Presidents were masons. Take a look at this list. Fascinating stuff! Looks like the article was written before Obama but he also has ties to the freemasons.

Yeah, too bad that, as the market gets overcrowded with offer, law of diminishing returns apply. I would understand one builds an actual service rendered via a web site or application. Attempts to monetise blogs, forums and online contents based on traffic alone equates to being at the complete mercy of whatever Google Ads and their brothers are willing to pay at any one time. As a business model, it's one doomed to rapid inflation and failure.

Correct. I asked abcdavid01 to direct us to one of his websites, but he doesn't seem to be willing to do so. One needs some kind of expertise or knowledge, not to mention a great deal of luck, to make money from a website. While some are telling him how smart he is, I am asking him to show me.

Intending to do something is not the same as doing it.

Banal generality. Please refer us to your websites where you are making money.

Among the posters in this thread, is there one person who has a website which makes him at least $100 per month? Speak up.

The HA Looney Tune Cadre does nothing but jerk each other off and scream that the sky is falling. They do nothing to change anything or even to prepare for what is coming. A bunch of helpless victims. If you are a victim now, then you will still be a victim when the shit hits the fan.

Many of you think that The End Of The World As We Know It is just around the corner. How many of you have a few guns and at least 2000 rounds of ammunition? How many of you have a 6 month supply of food in your house, right now?

Well, it depends what big businesses are selling. Even a million blogs selling their readers' eyeballs to Adsense will never replace industrial bakeries and car makers. All I am advocating is to use the online world as an outlet to sell real products, or intangibles that can help people's lives, like software or personal services, or simply inspire them, such as media and art.

The law of diminishing returns is at work on the ever-growing number of sites that try to monetise web traffic. The only people currently making some money are those who sell books and "methods" on how to effortlessly make that kind of passive income. In the near future, not even they will.

Most of the guys here are manginas who have no interest in change. Their interest is in coming here to whine and moan, and enjoying the company of others who do the same. Happier Abroad is one big mangina party. That's what i've learned in my short time here.

Clowny, it's true there are a few moaners and they're usually quite vocal, perhaps due to the gargantuan amount of spare time at their disposal. If you could be bothered to dig deeper in the current and historical posts, you will find there are quite a few great people: genuine expats, navigated travelers, alternative thinkers etc. Leaning too hard on the conspiracy theory du jour and getting all paranoid about it (and blaming it on Evil Feminists) is excessive, but that the world as we know it is slowly swirling down like a turd in a flushing toilet, it's a self-evident reality.

I have followed your replies on this thread and sympathise with you, as I share most of your views. Yet, I don't think labelling the entire HA as a "mangina party" does justice to all the good and balanced posters.

Of course man, you need real value and solve people's problems through helpful products but adsense when used in conjunction with helpful content and products is a winner.

Yeah, you shouldn't just rely on adsense.

I sell ebooks and services on mine.

Every problem is a product and people from all fields and sectors in life come to the internet to find solutions to their problems.

More and more people go online to buy products now and there are at least 2 billion people on the internet at one time.

For example, I went to a smart kid's high school because...well it made sense to them. So I aced the test to get in, but I really wanted to go to the vocational school on campus. The kids there may not have been as smart, but they were really learning. Taught them business, interpersonal skills, automotive and woodwork. I should have pushed harder to go there because I'd at least have some diversity.

My dad could argue that things were worse in his time. He was my age in the late 70's. But I think that's the wrong distinction. It's like asking, "Is it worse to live during a time of war or after your side has lost the war?" I feel like I'm living in the latter type of society.

Smart man.

The internet is going to rule our future since we are no longer in the industrial age but in the INFORMATION AGE.

Keep doing it and keep on building traffic to your online businesses.

In the near future, whoever doesn't learn how to harness the power of the internet is going to be LEFT BEHIND.


Yeah, too bad that, as the market gets overcrowded with offer, law of diminishing returns apply. I would understand one builds an actual service rendered via a web site or application. Attempts to monetise blogs, forums and online contents based on traffic alone equates to being at the complete mercy of whatever Google Ads and their brothers are willing to pay at any one time. As a business model, it's one doomed to rapid inflation and failure.


As long as you offer a product that is selling and target the right keywords, one will be fine.

The internet is the world.

It's going to replace big businesses for christ's sake.


Banal generality. Please refer us to your websites where you are making money.

Among the posters in this thread, is there one person who has a website which makes him at least $100 per month? Speak up.

The HA Looney Tune Cadre does nothing but jerk each other off and scream that the sky is falling. They do nothing to change anything or even to prepare for what is coming. A bunch of helpless victims. If you are a victim now, then you will still be a victim when the shit hits the fan.

Many of you think that The End Of The World As We Know It is just around the corner. How many of you have a few guns and at least 2000 rounds of ammunition? How many of you have a 6 month supply of food in your house, right now?


Yes, yes, yes for god's sake man.

I have published 5 books online and they are all selling.
You're where you're at in life because of your thoughts.

Most of the guys here are manginas who have no interest in change. Their interest is in coming here to whine and moan, and enjoying the company of others who do the same. Happier Abroad is one big mangina party. That's what i've learned in my short time here.


Clowny, it's true there are a few moaners and they're usually quite vocal, perhaps due to the gargantuan amount of spare time at their disposal. If you could be bothered to dig deeper in the current and historical posts, you will find there are quite a few great people: genuine expats, navigated travelers, alternative thinkers etc. Leaning too hard on the conspiracy theory du jour and getting all paranoid about it (and blaming it on Evil Feminists) is excessive, but that the world as we know it is slowly swirling down like a turd in a flushing toilet, it's a self-evident reality.

I have followed your replies on this thread and sympathise with you, as I share most of your views. Yet, I don't think labelling the entire HA as a "mangina party" does justice to all the good and balanced posters.


I agree that there are some excellent posters on HA, particularly the ones who have some actual experience abroad.
