Your Life Is Wasted

step_into_your_place

“So tell me, in just a few words, why you detest modern civilization,” said a friend over brandy and cigars back at the club.

“Too many ways to count,” harrumphed another member of our group.

I could see his point. Most evenings there, I spend my time there trying to avoid a gross faux pas while absorbing as much nicotine and mulled alcohol as possible. The conversation is good but generally, I have long given up on the interesting topics. Schopenhauer was right: talk about dogs and horses. But a reply was called for.

“It wastes your life,” I said. “Let me tell you three key ways and remember, gentlemen, that I started out in this life as a die-hard Liberal. I always want the best for humanity and to treat people well and fairly. But this has led me to surprising places.”

***

Antiwork

Believe it or not, antiwork conservatives exist. They recognize above all else that life must have a purpose, and that purpose is to enjoy life. In other words, to do life and to do it well. This requires the two components of conservatism, consequentialism (or realism) and a transcendental or optimizing goal that aims for excellence, beauty, immense inner satisfaction, existential pleasure and that sort of thing.

On top of that, we are practical men — and we are all men; did you ever know a woman to turn down a chance at being important at a job, rather than “stuck at home with the kids”? — who recognize that there is very little we must actually do. We need some kind of food, some roads, and to avoid dying in famine or warfare. Everything else is gravy, icing on the cake, and we can do without it.

Technology improves all these things, but on a curve like everything else under the sun. It is at first difficult, then a great boon, and finally, it settles into the same position of burden as everything else because it requires the same staff and labyrinth of rules to support it. At the far end of the curve, we are working for technology and not it for us.

The same is true of management. After the middle part of the curve, it becomes as much of a burden as aid. Soon we have more managers than workers. In the same way, clerks can become a burden. At some point, having all these people to take care of paperwork becomes a burden. And what if we reduce both to the minimum? Maybe we lose a few percent more each year in wastage, but we lose less of our lives to this mind-numbing, tedious labor.

During the late 1990s, this idea really exploded. Mike Judge made a movie called Office Space and Michel Houellebecq wrote a book called Whatever. Houellebecq introduced the topic, which was that jobs make us miserable and nothing that important goes on in them. Judge translated this for the masses into comedy that showed how even good jobs involved a few hours of work at most, management was insane, and most people were lonely and isolated.

These criticisms are not new. They began in the 1950s when the huge boom in Western wealth converted our surface cultures from “do the right thing” to “make the sale.” This disease spread from the top to the bottom, and now all of our jobs are a combination of past roles: clerk, salesman and now, IT guy. Most of what we do has nothing to do with any practical task.

If anything, the rise in online business has destroyed the role of salesman. The customer can find what he needs unless he is a total moron, in which case he is either a rich moron who can hire a personal assistant, or a poor moron who has no hope of buying anyway. The whole foundation of our post-1950s boom has just collapsed from within.

Now we shuffle everyone into office jobs, where one person now does as a singular role what one worker did in the past. This is a response to how dumb and neurotic everyone is, thus useless. Our managers are idiots, and our workers retards, so we dumb down the whole thing for them, which means that anyone with an IQ above that of a microwave hot pocket is in deep trouble because he or she will be bored, lonely and subtly enraged during their entire working tenure.

All of these are procedural or tactical critiques of jobs. We could do them in a tenth the time, and eliminate two-thirds of them, or numbers roughly along those lines. This is well-known among higher-ups but they also fear prole revolt, so they have designed the ultimate trap maze to keep the mice running in circles with just enough to buy goodies so that they do not notice their utter existential slavery.

The real critique is this: when your society starts making jobs be the forefront of existence, it means you have lost direction. You have given up on making sense of life and are trying only to keep the paychecks coming so the economy does not crash. Life itself has been disrespected and relegated to second-class citizen status. No one sees this as insanity because to do so is to realize that they are wasting the best hours of most days doing nothing of any real importance.

Goes Nowhere, Does Nothing

I stole this term from Star Trek. They wrote “GNDN” on the pipes running through the Enterprise in that cool font because those pipes were there for appearance only, to keep the audience pleased, as it were. The problem with living in a dying civilization, and modernity is certainly one of those, is that no matter what you do it will not matter.

In the past, people who did exceptional things had the belief that their works would live on by benefiting others. Now, we know that anything good will be ground under the wheel so that something mediocre but more profitable can take its place. Even if something is excellent, no one will recognize it because it appeals to a numerically small audience instead of the milling-about masses.

The people want 50 Cent, not Beethoven. They want Budweiser, not a pub on every corner with its own blend. They desire cigarettes, not pipes brimming with Empire Virginias pressed, panned and aged to perfection. This means that only fools pursue excellence, because the real model for victory is disguised mediocrity that is cheap to produce and sold at high margin, like Coca-Cola or the Republican party, come to think of it.

We are familiar with the trope of the innovative artist: laboring alone in poverty, he makes great works and is totally ignored. He dies in squalor and confusion, and then fifty years later someone makes a fortune by “discovering” his works and making him a household name. We have replaced this role by cutting out the innovative artist and replacing him with the recombinant aesthetics of the “creative” who have been taught to be so.

These people come up with “new” ideas that are re-mixes of old ideas, and give them the best slick surface that training and money can buy, and then are lauded as new undiscovered artists. The public, accustomed to the trope — and tropes are fun, like simple dances, because everyone can participate — lunges for the mediocre wrapped in shiny paper and then the artist is forgotten. See, we have made the process more efficient, just far lower quality.

All of this means that no sane person is going to spend their time on making objects of greatness. That is a path to getting ignored in the present, and, because our society is degenerating, not noticed in the future. No one cares about quality. As a result, if you slave away writing great symphonies, they will go into a dusty old library where no one notices them, which then burns down as a result of the incompetence of its staff.

We Are The Robots

The last one hits me closest to the heart: a society designed around equality turns its people into mechanical parts. The old saw about cogs in the machine comes to mind. Each person must be a worker, a consumer and a participant in some kind of social scene. We have converted everything that is not-work and not-buying into socializing.

This means that life is a robotic process of following what others are doing and trying to participate, without any ability to show distinction except by doing a different version of what everyone else is doing. Someone always wins that lottery, gets his fifteen minutes of fame, and then disappears into the memory hole, and everyone else chases the new trend.

In short, our society is vapid and worthless like most dying empires. It has replaced actual goals with nonsense and now demands we spend our time on this nonsense, robotically going through the motions. Anything that actually reflects us or our unique abilities is ignored, then trodden over as the crowd rushes to the next attraction or should I say, distraction. Your time is wasted by this process alone.

When people say that Europeans are not breeding at replacement rates, or that idiots seem to rule in every area of life, I point to this dilemma: when life becomes a repetitive process, anyone who wants to really live checks out and heads for the hills. There are not enough jobs as writers, artists, musicians and the like for everyone, and in those honesty is deprecated, which makes them a form of slavery to trend. It is misery.

Then take a look out the door. Constant make-work and busy-work. Cars drive around as if aimless, businesses scream advertisements, government lines the roads with signs warning us about how fun things will kill us. Every few years there is a new panic — drugs, Nazis, global warming, AIDS — that turns out to be a non-issue for most of us. There is no peace of mind or contemplation, because to have those would reveal the emptiness of it all.

***

“And that, gentlemen, is why modern society is worthless, in a nut-shell. This society has lost purpose. We no longer aim high for anything. There is only the activity we do to compensate, and it is designed for idiots by idiots, which slowly kills off the non-idiots.”

“Much as Satan fell to earth, and decided it was better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven, by giving power to Man over nature and God we have made a Hell of what could be Heaven. Since it is not visible like an apocalypse or zombie attack, it goes unrecognized. They waste your time, all of it if they can, because they have no purpose of their own.”

And with that, I sipped the brandy before it got too warm, and puffed my smoldering cigar back to life.

  1. AntiDem says:

    I’m sure that by now most women have noticed that feminism sold them a lie about the liberating nature of paid work; that most work sucks and anyone who can dodge it and not go crazy from lack of direction probably ought to. I’m convinced that it’s from the sheer stubbornness of not wanting to admit that they got taken for a ride that they won’t acknowledge this truth – like a prideful grandma who still insists that that Nigerian prince is going to make good on his promise soon and send her all of her retirement savings back, with an extra million dollars to boot.

    Work as little as you can while still keeping a roof over your head, food in your belly, and broadband internet connected to your laptop. Everything else is unnecessary fluff. Fred Reed once expounded on this in his usual lyrical manner. Longish quote:

    “I once lived briefly in an old one-bedroom trailer set in a patch of pine woods near Farmville, Virginia. A brick barbecue came with it, and a large floppy pooch, apparently a mixture of Irish setter and whatever was around. The place was blessedly quiet. Birds and bugs aren’t noise. When it rained I delighted in being almost in the storm, but dry. I think the whole shebang cost the owner five thousand dollars, including a well and septic system.

    If you are thinking, ‘Why…no…I couldn’t possibly live that way,’ you are probably right. But if I were doing it now, I would have staggering amounts of pirated music on today’s monstrous memory sticks, a set of very decent speakers for a few hundred doomed green ones, a Kindle or the free computer version for reading books from Amazon if I had the money or Project Gutenberg if I didn’t, and a fairly large flat screen for watching movies donated by uTorrent. Net cost: Under a grand.

    Circumstances differ, yes. But you get the idea: Comfort, quiet, music, books, barbecue, undefined dog, storms, friends, for practically nothing. Mutatis mutandis, the principle applies almost everywhere.

    It also fits well with Fred’s Bifurcate Law of Economic Independence: If you can’t pay for it, don’t buy it; and if you don’t need it, don’t buy it.”

    Sounds like a plan to me.

    • Vidar says:

      Thank you AntiDem. The sum total of my 53 years of struggle support your conclusions.
      We’ve been sold a lie. That pine woods life is paradise.

    • -A says:

      If you would ever want somethin a bit more than a trailer, Ventrivius comes to mind.

  2. -A says:

    When your grandchildren are arguing about the meaning of novels you never read till college, you will proclaim to them: “In my day, we understood the meaninglessness of life! We had to walk three miles in the snow, uphill both ways, to find our meaning in life!”

    At least you will have had something to live for. Not many will say that when they are your age and unfortunately alone.

  3. Mike says:

    Amen!

  4. Russian individual says:

    Yet for an asshole, Stevens is always on-spot in his criticism of modernity.

    What I disagree with is some of the conclusions, like nationalism and xenophobia.

    • Cryptogenic says:

      I disagree with his Utopianism/ressentiment. Pleasure, or “enjoying life,” is a carrot on a stick. It’s a means to an end. It’s the relief of pain or pressure and is purely negative. Stevens definitely doesn’t agree with Schopenhauer about much else.

      Life is not even meaningless.

    • Foam Penguin says:

      > I disagree with nationalism and xenophobia

      I understand the sentiment, but… well, no I don’t.

      I have one life, I don’t want to waste it on dealing with “people” who are genetically worse.

      The superior must absolutely embrace xenophobia and racism against the inferior or we will waste our lives with kiddy gloves on trying to coax brown retards into doing what to a white person just comes naturally, like using the toilet, not allowing their habitations to turn into feces smeared rats’ nests, and not committing rape, robbery and murder.

      I don’t want to waste my life, I want to LIVE my life, and that means BROWNS GET OUT.

  5. Great piece.

    “The last one hits me closest to the heart: a society designed around equality turns its people into mechanical parts.”

    Yep.

    Feminism = equality of dehumanization. Women gave up the kitchen to become cogs.

  6. Anti-Illuminati says:

    Much of the scientific revolution was due to the fact that aristocrats did science out of passion for it instead out of bias for grants. These days the worship of money has ruined all science and most of the arts.

    There is less appreciation for the arts these days due to cuts in public schools to jazz band, music appreciation for instance.

    And there is the broader conspiracy of collusion between the record company executives, the NBA, and the private prison system which all work in unison to prime the next generation of little Wayne wanna-be’s to get ready to enjoy a glorified life of thuggery – leading towards gay prison life.

    Homosexist Supremacism is crime against Moral Freedom, the freedom to be moral & decent and not aid & abet what is gross, foul, wicked, and evil.

    The state says you MUST bake the Gay Wedding Cake that associates marriage with the fecal penetration of narcissistic sexual deviants who have the support of Jewish globalist imperialists who use the homo agenda as their proxy. Jews are the ruling minority elite in gentile nations. /this makes Jews nervous, so they try to normalize minority elite supremacism by promoting homosexuality as the New Normal and Homomania as the new religion(that must even invade and take over churches).

    Russians must never surrender their Moral Freedom to Homosexist imperialism.

    Homosexist Supremacists are not content to have the freedom to indulge in gross, deviant, and foul acts of fecal penetration and mutilating sexual organs for purposes of ‘changing’ sexes.

    They want to take away your MORAL FREEDOM to not involve yourself in their degenerate behavior.
    So, marriage has been turned into a decadent institution to serve the vanity of homos, women’s restrooms & showers have been turned into place for men with wigs & dresses, and decent bakers must be fined and driven out of business because they refuse to believe that a homo’s fart/poop hole is the equivalent of a woman’s vagina that births life.

    Homosexist narcissism isn’t about the freedom to be homo and do homo things. It is about the homos taking away the right of Moral Freedom from those who refuse to see homomania and transmania as healthy moral/cultural developments.

    Homosexist narcissists say a man’s fart-hole is no less a sex organ as a vagina.

    If that is so, this must be sweet music and shit must be equal to a baby.

    https://youtu.be/XpQQpIOCp_A?t=1m3s

    ‘Gay marriage’ is anti-true marriage since it equates perverted ‘sex’ among homos with real sex between men and women that makes natural sense and produces life. ‘Gay marriage’ also argues that a homo’s fecal anus is the ‘sexual’ equivalent of a woman’s vagina that produces life. It’s an insult to womanhood, esp considering the pain a woman goes thriugh in child birth.
    Equating homosexuality and real sexuality is like equating evolution with creationism in the name of ‘science equality’. In fact, creationism is bogus. Pro-creationists might argue that they are for the equal teaching of both instead being against evolution, but when falsehood is made equal with truth, it is anti-truth. The idea that homosexuality has equal value with real sexuality between men and women is like saying a lie is worth the same as truth. Why is a penis being smeared with fecal matter of equal value with a penis fertilizing the egg in the female organ?

    EQUALITY doesn’t mean that perversion is equal to decency. It doesn’t mean that two guys indulging in fecal penetration are doing something of equal biological and moral value as man and woman having real sex. As marriage has biological and moral value, it makes no sense to pretend that homosexuality and trans-genderism have equal value with true sexuality.

    If everything should be hailed as ‘equal’, then teach Creationism in schools in the name of SCIENCE EQUALITY. Don’t ‘discriminate’ against Creationists.

    And

    Promote voodoo medicine in the name of ‘medical equality’. Don’t use ‘Euro-centicism’ to ‘privilege’ Western empirical medicine over non-white supernatural medicine. That’s ‘racist’.

    —–

    There are so many circles of lies here.

    It goes to show that the search for truth can slide into a cesspool of lies.

    There used to be a time of undue panic about homos. People sought all sorts of ‘scientific’ reasons to treat it as a mental sickness.

    But then, it was realized that homos are just born that way, and there was nothing that can be done about it.

    So, the idea was that homos should be allowed to do their homo things.
    Still, it was understood that homo stuff was biologically useless, gross, and/or ridiculous because factually it is. Fecal penetration among men indeed.

    There was truth all around: homos are born that way AND homo-ness is a natural abnormality that turns off most people for obvious reasons. So, let homos be homo, but let’s not pretend that it makes biological or moral sense..

    But then the lies began, and one lie began to snowball into other lies.

    1. We were told that homosexuality is ‘rational’ and ‘natural’–meaning naturally normal than naturally abnormal–, and if you find it gross or weird, you are a ‘homophobe’ suffering from an ‘irrational’ and ‘unnatural’ extreme aversion to something healthy.
    In fact, ‘homophobia’ doesn’t exist. People’s aversion to homosexuality is natural. What are unnatural is homomania and homophilia. Indeed, the fact that 24/7 homo propaganda costing billions has to promoted constantly to make us support the agenda is proof of how unnatural homomania is. It’s like North Korea has to push the cult of great leader day in and day out to perpetuate the myth that the fat Kim is a great man. End the propaganda and indoctrination, and people will see him for the pig he is. Turn off the lie machine and people will quickly revert to the truth on the true nature of homosexuality.

    2. We were told that homos were pure-as-snow victims of AIDS only because of Reagan’s ‘indifference’ and that the spread of AIDS had nothing to do with wanton homo behavior.

    3. We were shown so many homos on TV and in movies that American public began to think that 25% of Americans are homo even though homos are only 2% of the population.

    4. We were only shown clean-cut idealized images of homos while anyone who opposed the homo agenda was portrayed as a degenerate pervert. Audiences are shielded for the most part from the gross physical side of homosexuality.

    5. We were told that homo agenda is about choice and freedom, but then anyone who uttered anything critical about homosexuality or the homo agenda was shot down, reviled, and attacked.

    6. We were told that homo agenda would simply allow homos to their own thing without interfering with our values or institutions. Clinton signed marriage act and Obama voted for religious freedom act. They were both lies and tricks.

    7. Homo agenda went from a matter of free choice among homos to mandatory requirement among straight people to not only tolerate homos but to mute their own criticism of homos, then to praise homos, then to celebrate homos, then to worship homos, and then to attack anyone who doesn’t do likewise. In big cities, politicians don’t have a chance unless they attend homo ‘pride’ rallies. It is a mandatory requirement.

    Why must straight people grovel and worship homos? What is so great about men porking each other in the fecal hole, or women having ‘sex’ by humping a hole with a hole, or men/women undergoing genital mutilation to become the opposite sex?

    8. Then, the homo agenda said that homo should get ‘married’ on the basis that homosexuality is just as ‘naturally’ normal and rational and moral as real sexuality. This led to the crazy notion that ‘two mommies’ or ‘two daddies’ can have kids. We were supposed to pretend that if a lesbian has a man impregnate her, she had the kid with her lesbian lover/wife than with the man.

    Lies and lies, but in a corrupt society made up of cowards(who shudder at the feet of Jews who chose homos as their favored allies), even conservatives have kept their mouths shut. While hysterically howling about Israel and Iran, they don’t dare take a strong stand against the homomaniacal policies favored by Liberal Jews and Neocon Jews as well.

    9. Then, homos began to infiltrate the churches and turn church after church into swallowing the nonsense that Christianity is compatible with the homo agenda and ‘gay marriage’.

    10. People were told the lie that the homo agenda is ‘leftist’ and about helping poor helpless victims when, in fact, it’s been the favored agenda of the oligarchic class that has long appreciated the loyal service of vain and power-hungry homos.

    ———-

    This brings us to a problem. All these lies began with the truth. The truth was homos are born that way, and they can’t do anything about it, so they should be allowed to do their homo things on their own.
    So, why couldn’t homos be content with the truth? We accepted that they are born fruity and tolerated their homo stuff among themselves. Why couldn’t it end there?

    It’s because we overlooked the homo psychology. By nature vain, narcissistic, hissy, sneering, ooh-lala, whoopity-doo, bitchy, queenie-ish, and snotty, it was never enough for homos to just be tolerated. They have a pagan-god complex and wanna be worshiped as royalty and Adonises. They have personalities of ‘radical will’ that wants to be center of the world.
    I mean, just think about it. They are so pushy and deluded that some of them put on women’s dress and makeup and really believe that they look like hot stuff. Indeed, they are so demanding that they insist that WE find them ‘beautiful’ too. Now, it’s become bad form according to PC for us to laugh at and mock trannies who look ridiculous.

    We want to accept the truth, but sometimes there’s more to the truth than we may have originally assumed. Even as we accepted the truth of homosexuality, there was a hidden truth that we ignored: that homos have a problem with the truth. i.e. even as we accepted the truth about them(they were born homo and have a tendency to indulge in gross and weird ‘sexual’ behavior), they could not handle the truth about themselves. They wanted to believe the lie that their ‘sexuality’ is biologically the equal of ours, that their ‘morality’ founded on biological lies is not only as good as our morality but even better, indeed to the point where we should get on our knees and bow down before them.
    Indeed, the very nature of homosexuality is deceitful. It is a natural lie. Nature produces sexually dysfunctional people such as homos who believe that the male anus is a ‘sex’ organ. It produces men who want their penis removed and fitted with fake vaginas that they believe to be just as good as real vaginas.
    Homosexuality produces feelings and mind-sets in homos that prefer the lies about biology.
    Homosexuality produces lesbians who rub pooters together and produce no life but then hire a man to become pregnant and then lie to themselves that THEY had the child together.
    But then, lies + power = forcing everyone else to swallow the lie as well or else.
    As Jews have the power over media and government, they can force or brainwash us all to swallow the lie pushed by homos.

    So, what is to be done? I’m not a religious nut who wants to say “God hates fa*s.”
    I accept the biological reality/truth about homosexuality, BUT, homos, being vain and egotistical and queenie-meanie, cannot accept the truth of their biology. They not only say that they were born that way(truth) but insist that their ‘sexuality’ is just as normal, valid, and rational as real sexuality is(lie) and that a homo’s anus(that excretes feces) is just as much a ‘sex organ’ as a woman’s vagina that produces life. A tranny’s fake vagina is just as real as a real vagina. And ‘two daddies’ can have kids together. And anyone who disagrees is a ‘homophobe’ with mental problems and is a moral degenerate to boot.

    I can accept the truth about homos but homos can’t.

    This is the nature of the conundrum:

    Suppose someone is a compulsive liar, and we try to make him stop lying. But suppose it turns out that he can’t help it. He was born with the compulsive lying gene. He feels this powerful compulsion to lie and simply can’t stop.
    So, we accept the truth and allow him to be a compulsive liar.
    Good for everyone, right? He gets to compulsively lie, which he can’t help. And we tolerate the fact that he loves to lie.

    No, it doesn’t end there. Being a compulsive liar, he not only lies but insists that he is telling the truth. He then says his lies or ‘truths’ are just as valid as our truths. Then, he accuses us of telling lies and says his ‘truths'(lies) must be favored over our ‘lies'(which is actually the truth).

    Now, what would happen if such compulsive liars were to be favored by the rich and powerful(esp the untouchable Jews) who use all their financial, governmental, legal, cultural, and media power to promote the compulsive liars as ‘the greatest truth tellers’ whom we all must all obey? Sheeple can be made to believe in anything through media manipulation and mass education/indoctrination, especially if they’ve been cut off from deeper truths of biology, morality, and culture.

    But Cons are to blame too because their ideology has become a big lie. It is based on the false premise that Jews are totally wonderful, the best friends of conservatism and Christianity, and that serving Jews is what conservatism is all about. In truth, Jews have been at the forefront of pushing the homo agenda.

    As for the religious right, they can’t accept the truth of evolution and biology, such as that homos are born that way.

    Anyway, it’s not enough for us to accept the physical truth. We need to understand the psychological truth. Physical truth is that homos are born that way and that their ‘sexuality’ is biologically worthless and morally dubious(as it is a natural lie).

    But there is also the psychological truth that says homos are vain, pushy, bitchy, and can’t accept the truth that their ‘sexuality’ is not equally valid as ours.

    For this reason, the acceptance of the truth about homos can lead to a slippery slope of lies because, once homos are given even the slightest bit of legitimacy, they work obsessively to force all of us into believing that EVERYTHING about them is just as good or even better than our sexuality.
    So, fecal penetration among men become the equivalent of real sex between men and women.
    So, a tranny with fake vagina is as much a real woman as a real woman.
    And such stuff are like the ‘rainbow’.

    An empire of lies.

    • Missy says:

      well just using science and reality again, not one other animal species on this planet has anal sex. It’s got to be an abomination of some sort because nature only values sexual reproduction. Also using science and reality, we know that male homosexuals have female brains due to an error in the 6th week of development. So the existence of male homosexuals is not an abomination but rather a birth defect. Like any one born with a birth defect they should have our compassion. Like you said, however, our society should not be promoting the deviant behaviors that result from this birth defect nor the mental illness of transgender. Who didn’t find it highly disturbing that the White House was lit up in a rainbow? and I used to be somewhat liberal! and let’s not forget that homosexuals make up less than 2% of the population.

  9. […] Stevens seems to think so, as he expressed that very opinion in a May 26, 2016 blog post entitled Your Life is Wasted. I found it quite interesting that I was not the only one thinking about this subject at the […]

  10. Anoon says:

    This is a good article and an example of why I still read this site. The issue with so many conservatives is they’ve been fed a lie that one should just keep their head down and work hard and life will work itself out, but that’s the exact attitude that has lead to current circumstances. Leftists have put out plenty of antiwork philosophy themselves, but their solutions utterly miss the mark because they misdiagnose the problem, they’re still attached to modernism, or they just want gibs.

    The discussion I’d like to see moving forward is practical advice for escaping the rat maze of cities and a life of wage slavery. Entrepreneurship is great but most people are not cut out for it, and most part time jobs won’t even pay for the lowest tier apartment. Tiny homes seem like a great idea, you can custom make them on a budget on a moderate plot of rural land.

    • The issue with so many conservatives is they’ve been fed a lie that one should just keep their head down and work hard and life will work itself out, but that’s the exact attitude that has lead to current circumstances.

      I agree. That is what drove me from conservatism so long ago, because it was obvious nonsense. Then I realized the Left was just as wrong and even crazier.

      How to escape this mess? Well… any easy answers given in public anywhere will get mobbed. Find something you can do well, live away from the cities (!!!), grow as much of your own food as possible and home-school. Get armed and ready to overthrow the governments of the West and to herd the people who endorse democracy/Leftism onto boats bound for Brazil.
