Being Too Hard on America
My recent writeup on President Trump’s shithole comments and how America is a shithole received some criticism from one of TNMM’s readers. Judge Shredd writes:
I have a problem with all the things you listed as well and they suck but it’s all taken out of context. Our roads are paved, the electricity, internet, law enforcement, basic services, garbage is picked up, stores are stocked with food, we grow food, hospitals are everywhere, etc etc..we are an advanced first world society with first world problems. There are criminals, lowlives, Anglo cunts etc..you the Matrix sucks but they push that in the Western world but at least you have the opportunity to break out of it or build a business to advance here. Clue: why the fuck are people from almost everywhere else trying to come here?
Dude, I get where you’re coming from but the US is NOT a shithole taken as a whole compared to other countries. You just don’t like they General way of life here.
I understand his concern with what I wrote. But I wouldn’t have written it if I didn’t believe it to be the unvarnished truth. All I can think of when I’m in America is how I can get back out of it again. I distinctly remember saying “I hate this place” at least a couple of times a week during my time trucking as I kept myself motivated to stay financially on track with memories of life outside the matrix.
My views are harsh in part because working in the media then seeing America from coast to coast in a truck presented quite the juxtaposition for me. The candy coated lies I saw broadcast to the world on a daily basis vs. the bitter, workaday wage slavery reality I saw as I drove through countless towns, nearly every major city, and nearly every state in the nation. I realized the entire premise of America is built upon fantasy and deceit. I typed up this thoughtful rebuttal to his comment, and felt it important to share with everyone.
“Our roads are paved, the electricity, internet, law enforcement, basic services, garbage is picked up, stores are stocked with food, we grow food, hospitals are everywhere, etc etc..”
If you travel around you’ll see most of the world has all that, too. The rest of the world is not filled with heathens living in the Stone Age longing to get into America (the media puts that notion in the mass mind) as much as it’s filled with people brainwashed by the idea of America just as many of us were until we found the truth.
Once people actually come to America and see life doesn’t match what they see in Hollywood films and in the American media, many become disillusioned. I’ll never forget the looks on recent immigrants’ faces when they get stuck in shitty jobs at warehouses or processing plants (I meet them all over the nation when I’m trucking) after everything they had to go through to get into the U.S. They expected a land of milk and honey, and what they got was subsistence wage slavery sucking up all the hours of their lives and the same carrot on a stick we’re all told to chase until we die. They’re confused, but a part of them knows they got burned. Reality just hasn’t set in yet.
America is more about marketing than reality. There are 8.7 million Americans living abroad, and the number is growing as more and more people flee the dystopia it is turning into. I’d bet many millions more want to leave but don’t know how, or are cockblocked from leaving by voluminous immigration and customs laws intended to keep people in their respective cages. These numbers are never discussed because they’re not good for business.
The only way we can fix the problems of the nation is to admit they’re there, and not try to wallpaper over them. America was once a great nation, but I feel it’s not so great anymore.
If I’ve created an entire lifestyle out of my motivation to leave America, have become happier as a result, and help lead a growing movement of men who either want to go MGTOW, John Galt, or become expats, shouldn’t that tell us there’s something deeply wrong in The Land of the Fee and Home of the Slave?
