About fafc

The goal of the “Find a Free Country Project” is to research, explore and find a safe and secure free country outside the USA, that is not too large, has a relatively open immigration policy, has a friendly business climate, has a non-intrusive government committed to freedom, and then move to it.

    True, the sad thing is that even though intelligent people generally warn the public in advance of the potential/coming decline, they have to my knowledge never been listened to by the same/said public, for example Enoch Powell warned the British people what would happen to the UK if it allowed mass third World immigration, the British public ignored him and you can see for yourself what the end result of it is.

      The lesson to take away from studying history is that no one pays any attention to history.

        Sad, but true, although at least in the past people had the excuses that historical knowledge wasn’t widely available and that there were other more pressing issues to deal with (more or less constant warfare, major outbreaks of diseases, etc.), but people today in first World countries don’t have those excuses anymore, more or less all of the publicly known history of the World is available to them literally at the touch of their fingertips, yet the vast majority of people remain ignorant of history and it’s implications for their futures.
