One thing that is certain. It’s more than high time we stop making believe that we will restore things back to normalcy in America anytime soon. We will not be living in a country where a working majority of the voters want life to be like it was in the 1950s or even the 1980s. Those attitudes and ways of life have been replaced by social values and practices such as same sex marriage, affirmative action and feminism. If, someday, a reaction to these things came about then maybe we could return to a time where we all could complacently trust in the public schools and the federal government to perform their roles in providing us with the services that we expect. But as Dorothy famously stated, “Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore.” So, let’s move on.
Okay, glass half full. Going forward we get to decide how we deal with Big Brother. So, the government is working against you. Take that as a given. Also, a given, the current state of government surveillance is technically quite impressive. They have access to everything you write and even a lot of what you say and, heaven help us, they can even figure out a lot of what you think. So that’s bad. But on the good side, they’re mostly not that bright. So, if you don’t hurl yourself into every pit trap and snare that they’ve very clearly set up for you it should be relatively simple to avoid being dragged off to the gulag, for the most part.
And that’s great news! There are all kinds of great things that have been created here in the United States. Enjoying a more or less first world infrastructure and economy is a major advantage. And North America is a majestic place. The only trick is to avoid the Leftists that infest it and make life horrific. So, that’s what we need to do. You need to organize your life to avoid the institutions and limitations that the Left has put in place. First and foremost, you have to protect your children from the school system. And that’s a big effort. Private school is very expensive and homeschooling is equally difficult for most people. Another choice is moving to a jurisdiction that has school choice or somehow still has a non-leftist school environment. But it is totally necessary to address. And you have to educate your children about the realities of life in the new America. You have to give them “the talk.”
What about woke corporations? How do you avoid working for them? Well, maybe you can. Tradesmen don’t have to worry about this. They can be self-employed or work for small businesses that fly under the woke radar. And then there is the tactic of working clandestinely inside of a woke corporation without exposing your true colors. Admittedly that is a risky plan and it could backfire. After all things could become very difficult with respect to the woke environment especially if you get into the higher echelons and your personal life might come in contact with the crazier types where you work. You might become exposed as a normal person and that could lead to you being expelled from “the body.” The financial fallout from something like that could be catastrophic, especially if you have kids in college and other very expensive commitments. So, working for a woke corporations is a very tricky proposition for people on the Right.
And then there’s the question of where you live. Ideally you live in a scarlet Red State and far, far away from any city awash in crime. Of course, for some of us this is extremely difficult because of personal and family circumstances. If you don’t have the luxury of relocating then once again, you’ll have to do the best you can to minimizing the danger of living in a lawless region. At the very least live as far as you can from these danger zones by putting a long commute between where you have to work and where your family lives.
And finally, one of the most important considerations for living successfully inside of occupied territory is locating and cultivating the company of like-minded people as your friends and associates. And this means actual neighbors and also people in cyberspace. Both are important and both provide an aspect of support that will make life more rewarding.
So instead of waiting for the glorious revolution when the Leftists will be perp walked on their way to Gitmo start living in the here and now. Take the reasonable precautions and develop your environment regardless of whether you’re in rural Florida or San Francisco, California. Now maybe finding another country to live in, like Hungary might seem like a better solution. Personally, I’m evaluating that option myself. But that’s an enormous change and almost no one is ready to go that far. Yet.
But definitely don’t let the horror of the Left destroy your life. Think rationally about their areas of control and how to circumvent their influence. I think you’ll find there are ways to endure and even thrive in this brave new world.
