5 Reasons I Left America


“I guard my treasures: my thought, my will, my freedom. And the greatest of these is freedom.” -Ayn Rand

It’s a decision that took me a long time to realize. But I finally did it, I left America. I am the first person in my family to leave America with the purpose of permanently living somewhere else since at least the 1700s or 1800s. (My genealogy research has yielded spotty results.)

Of course, I’ve received the prerequisite criticism and curiosity seeking for my decision. But you know what? Fuck those people I’m doing what I need to do to be happy, and most importantly, free.

Here are the top five reasons I decided to call it quits, and like so many other men before me throughout history, strike out on my own, and hope that I land on shores with greener pastures.


Scenes like this are increasingly rare after feminism, as women give up motherhood to become obedient workers

1. Feminism. Without a doubt, this is the prime reason I left Anglo-America. Feminism, first deployed by the CIA via their cat’s paw Gloria Steinem, has wreaked havoc on the relations between the sexes and ruined the quality of women. This epidemic is now spreading worldwide through the sewer pipe of Hollywood, now spewing its bile across the globe. Feminism, by design, has broken up the family, pitted men and women against each other, and caused women to waste the most fertile years of their lives pursuing credentialism, materialism, and YouGoGrrl careerism. Instead of becoming loving and fulfilled mothers and wives, women are increasingly becoming barren (but importantly, taxpaying!) corporate cogs.


Our friends in the police and surveillance state are everywhere.

2. Police and Surveillance State. Oh, the irony of the world’s biggest police state branding itself as the Land of the Free. The U.S. has 5% of the world’s population but a whopping 25% of the world’s prison population. The War on Drugs puts more people in prison for having plants and substances the government doesn’t want them to have than any other crime. (The U.S. is fond of profitable “wars” on everything from poverty to drugs to terror.) Surveillance cameras are going up everywhere, apps are being created so neighbors can snitch on each other, your personal information online is bought and sold by corporate marketing firms and the government. The Utah Data Center is being built so the government can build even better profiles of who you are and track virtually everything you do and say from cradle to grave. The TSA and Customs harass law-abiding citizens every time they pass borders but other agencies allow and even encourage illegal aliens from all of the world to flagrantly break U.S. immigration laws.


Tech gadget worship is widespread

3. Technology Worship. Don’t get me wrong, technology can be a wonderful thing. But when it supplants normal human interaction and communication, there’s a problem. Now, updates to your personal PR agency (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) are more important to potential friends and mates than knowing the person you actually are. The lines that form outside Apple stores when a new product comes out just confirms how insane the technology worship has become. Each product release is treated like the Second Coming of Christ. (I also love how the dupes of Google and Apple fight each other to the death about which toy is better, doing these companies’ marketing battles for them.) Women post bathroom selfies unendingly in the quest for attention and your replacement as her handbag accessory boyfriend is only a swipe away on Tinder.


The next great meal is an obsession for some

4. Shopping and Eating Culture. I’ve often said the only outlets for the Freudian id approved of by our masters are shopping and eating. Every problem in life has now become solvable only by buying things, lumbering through the mall in search of yet more junk that will be thrown into a pile or the landfill. The American house now has 300,000 items in it, on average. The recreational eating obsession has led to America becoming the fattest nation in the history of the planet. People have no idea what portion control is and how little food it actually takes to be happy and healthy nutritionally.


Be sure to work hard and pay your taxes so others don’t have to

5. Abusive Taxes. In the past, abusive taxes were enough to start the American Revolution. Today, American “men” bend over and divvy up. Add all the taxes you pay up: FICA, Social Security, State, City, Sales, Licensing, Vehicle registration, Gasoline, Food, Use, and Lodging, among others. If you make an average or better salary, this will amount to 40-60% of your income or more. Most of what you pay is then used for wealth redistribution schemes. Quite frankly, I got tired of being forced to support lazy people, single moms who make bad decisions of who fathers their children, and other leeches of the system.

My life is infinitely more simple than the hoop-jumping life I had back in the States. I hope I never have to come back.

For the first time in my life, I feel like I have choices. I have choices in women. I have choices in what kind of work I do without jumping through hoops designed to keep people from starting businesses and careers without being filched by the system. I have choices of what I am going to do with my time at my business and in my spare time. No more 60 hour weeks. Two-hour lunch breaks (siestas) are the norm where I am, and people work to live, they don’t live to work.

The taste of this type of freedom and others is something that becomes an addiction. I had never truly felt freedom until I decided to do some experimentation and started traveling to far-off places (after discovering the manosphere.) It’s often been said that five years from now you’ll be the same person you are today except for the people you meet and the things you read. I am eternally thankful for the Red Pill knowledge that developed as a result of the Internet and a bunch of disenfranchised men getting together to discuss how they were getting shafted by a system that threw them overboard 50 years ago. The readings have changed my life for the better, and I want to give back and help grow this community so others might benefit.

My decision to live abroad is not without its challenges, but I’d rather die on my feet than live a life on my knees, to paraphrase Emilio Zapata.
