"It takes far less effort to find and move to the society that has what you want than it does to try to reconstruct an existing society to match your standards." - Harry Browne, How I Found Freedom in an Unfree World
I`ve been reading Henry Makows articles for about 7 years now. Theres lots of people out there that are unhappy the direction society is headed, you just never hear about them. You might find this one inetesting.

I'm reading post #1 on the list and noticed:
"There are also other good things about being in Taiwan as opposed to Canada. For one, the weather is much warmer. They grow all kinds of tropical fruit here all year long, so my health has improved. Financially, it is much cheaper to live: I'm renting a two story house for $200 (my friend in Canada is renting a one bedroom apartment for $1000). Food is cheaper and can be bought at traditional markets. You can go out late at night and eat good food for about a dollar.
But perhaps the biggest thing is the issue of freedom: I am more free here than I ever was anywhere in Canada. I can ride a motorcycle without a license or helmet and it's no problem. Also, I can go to the shop, buy a can of beer for a dollar, and drink it on the street. In contrast, last year I went to Canada and got a $300 fine for drinking a beer on the street, and I wasn't even drunk."
I'm from Taiwan and would suggest the readers to check local laws before blindly believing whatever these guys are posting. A motorcycle license is required to ride motorcycles and scooters in Taiwan. There's also different classes of motorcycle license depending on displacement. Helmets are mandatory by law. Seatbelts are also mandatory for cars (different rules apply for city/highway).
