Exit Strategy

exitstrategy“An exit strategy is a means of leaving one’s current situation, either after a predetermined objective has been achieved, or as a strategy to mitigate failure.” Wikipedia

This makes sense.

Do you have an Exit Strategy? Do you think it would be a good idea to at least think about what you are going to do if things don’t work out quite how you want them to? If your house burns down, do you have a place to stay? If your city suffers from some sort of disaster or crisis, do you have somewhere to go?

How about if your country descends into tyranny? Chaos? Fascism? Dictatorship? Have you thought about what will happen to your family and yourself if something like that happens?

Do you have an Exit Strategy? Do you have a plan? Do you have an idea other than cowering in your house or some bunker?

    I do a have a general exit strategy in mind, but I am still not ready to make the plunge, the reasons being:

    1) Plenty of countries (Ireland, Australia, Canada (Alberta to be more specific), New Zealand, etc.) that seemed to be at least OK options (to me) when this website was started in 2013, have done so many stupid things in the meantime that now in 2018 I have no desire to even visit them as a tourist, much less move there, and I don’t want to move somewhere, only to have it become the same or worse than Croatia in 5 or 10 years time, I mean if I have to live in a “swamp”, I would rather live in a “swamp” I know how to navigate, than waste time, money, etc. on moving to a different “swamp” and learning how to navigate it.

    2) The few remaning good (or at least OK) options in Europe all have the hammer (and sickle) of the EU hanging over them, so until it becomes blatantly clear that they won’t let the Bruxelles loons ruin their countries, I am not really prepared to commit to moving there, because (as I wrote above) if it is Europe’s destiny to turn into a “swamp”, then I might as well stay in the “swamp” I am living in now.

    3) Of the few remaning remotely interesting countries outside of Europe, I am not prepared to move to any of them without learning the local language to at least the lower-intermediate level, I have decided that every country where English is the main language of communication should be avoided, because when countries such as USA and UK literally start falling apart, it’s obvious that is where the “liberal” loons will start escaping to en masse, since they for the most part don’t speak any other language (and even in countries like Sweden English is the only foreign language (I don’t count mutually intelligible languages as foreign) the vast majority of local liberals know how to speak), and like the “liberal” loons escaping California ruined the major cities in Texas, Colorado, etc., they will do the same thing to those countries that they end up escaping to.

      Yeah. I can see how the devil you know can be very appealing. I sometimes find myself wishing that I had gone to Mexico simply because I understand the place and the people so much better, and I am a few hours from friends, family, and business issues. But the fact that the Republic of Georgia has turned out to be less fantastic than I thought doesn’t mean I want to go back to the USSA, or that I am willing to abandon what I have done here. I think I am just going to have to mix some rather large doses of patience and reality. There is no perfect place. And in fact I have recently discovered some very clever ways of setting up businesses here so as to take advantage of the tax treatment.

  2. Croatian Capitalist says:

    1) Regardless of how Georgia is or will become, I am sure that you made the right decision in leaving the USA, as much as I hate the commies here, they do what they do because they are crooks, not because they are ideologically driven to destroy Western Civilization like the “liberals” in America are.

    2) Perfection is a subjective thing, for example I often hear people here call beetroot the perfect food, but I literally can’t eat it, so it obviously isn’t the perfect food for me, the same thing applies to countries, somebody might consider the perfect country some country (maybe Mongolia?) that lets him live in the countryside without the government bothering him, somebody else couldn’t care less about living in the countryside (regardless of government interference or lack of thereof), so that means nothing to him.

  3. Croatian Capitalist says:

    Something crossed my mind today when thinking about the issue of predicting the future of countries, namely that if we were having these discussions of which places are the best to move to and have the brightest future lets say 50 years ago, I would have probably said California, Sweden, Spain, Canada, Australia and South Africa, while now in our actual reality those very same places top my list of places not to go to! A 100 years ago I would have probably said Argentina is the country to be in and the country with the brightest long-term future, while in reality the Argentinians turned to socialism in the 1940’s and Argentina has been a joke ever since, etc., so the point I am trying to make is that if history is anything to go by, the countries which now appear to have the brightest futures ahead of them probably for the most part won’t be the countries which will actually end up having the brightest futures, for example which two countries have made the most progress over the last 50 years? In my opinion South Korea and Singapore, and who outside those two countries actually thought that would be the case? Next to no-one probably, but regardless of that they managed to go from being third World countries to being first World countries in a single generation.

      Maybe the secret is to go somewhere no one is talking about?

      • Croatian Capitalist says:

        Modern history would indicate that is so, places that are touted by the leftist media tend to attract the wrong kind of people, so if the Guardian, the Huffington Post or similar publication is singing the praises of some place, it is probably a good idea to avoid it.

        If I had to bet on it, I would put my money on Poland.

        In any case, I hope that whatever country does end up being the new “America”, that it will not repeat the mistakes of this one, it is depressing when you think about how America’s universities, the judiciary, media outlets, etc. were all infiltrated and taken over by haters of Western Civilization with next to no opposition, and how even the legal immigration system let millions upon millions of such people into the USA, the new “America” will need extreme immigration vetting, otherwise it will eventually just end up like this one.

          America is just 20 years behind Europe. Unless Americans start doing something to fix the problem. Most people who even see that there is a problem think that all they have to do is vote for Trump and then ignore everything. Even if Trump was Superman, he couldn’t solve it without the constant attention and effort of the American people. And that is just not going to happen. The Left has succeeded in turning several generations into utter imbeciles.

    That is the sad truth, I met many members of your future elite, because unfortunately for some reason Ivy League students choose to hold a regatta near the place I vacation in, and calling them utter imbeciles would still be too mild, and I can’t imagine the young common Americans being much better

    • fafc says:

      I think you only have to look to Canada to see where the USA is going. 10 years ago Canada was actually ahead of the USA on so many fronts having essentially just missed the 2008 financial crisis. So the Canadians decided to self-destruct and elect this idiot who is destroying Canada from within. And the Canadians think it is ok.

      • Croatian Capitalist says:

        Canada’s downfall actually started when it elected his father Pierre in 1968, this idiot is just finishing what his father started. In some ways, Canada’s situation is more tragic, until Pierre Trudeau became prime minister in 1968, Canada was an almost totally ethnically European and Christian country (unlike the USA which inherited a large African slave population from the British), and had no third World neighbors (unlike the the USA which borders Mexico and the poor Caribbean countries), plus to see what the end result of “multiculturalism” is they only had to look across the border at Detroit (which went from being the Paris of North America to being the Kinshasa of North America), and Canada is one of only a dozen or so countries in the World which could be completely self-sufficient in all important areas (water, food, oil, etc.) if it choose to do so, so it couldn’t be pressured from the outside (if they had actual statesmen running the country, instead of these losers), thus it could have avoided all of it’s current problems easily, instead it choose national-suicide, it’s mind-boggling really.

    To get back to the USA, to you think that eventually at least some parts of the country will somehow manage to become independent and at least somewhat resemble the old USA?
