Walking off the Anglo-American Plantation

plantation

Are you ready to become a runaway slave?

Knowledge makes a man unfit to be a slave.

What an irony to hear our masters talk about “freedom” all the time when there is virtually no freedom left in America. From cradle to grave we are micromanaged and controlled, farmed like so many human sheep.

What’s more, Anglo women are the plantation owners along with the corporate-government complex. We men just exist to power the monster known as the consumption economy. Corporations increasingly gobble up control over the “free market” which is really turning into a fascist market, the government forcefully takes the fruit of our labor away, and women spend 90% more than they earn statistically. There are few choices in this setup.

Bet you never thought of the economy that way. But that’s roughly how it works.

In the past, the urge to flee oppression led people to sail off into the unknown, even if that meant crossing an ocean unsure if they would drop off the other side when the Flat Earth Theory ruled. Some of us still have that mentality – we are leaving situations that put us at a disadvantage no matter what.

However, some people are content to sit back and let every aspect of their lives be controlled by a centralized authority that gives zero fucks about them, their livelihood, and yes, their freedom. It is only interested in what it can extract from them monetarily. This must stop and the message of male liberation from a society that doesn’t give a fuck about them must be spread. Women had their liberation, now it’s time for ours.

Since we statistically only spend 30-40% of what we earn in the national economy anyway, all our extra productivity is consumed by women and a nanny state. Instead of busting our backs to produce even more as our masters tell us we have to do, we need to buck up and throw our sabots into the machine, as workers who were being abused are said to have done in the 19th century creating the word “sabotage.” To do any less would be to sit back and accept abuse.

The old incentives for male cooperation are no longer there.

Let’s tally up what has been taken away from us as men as traditional incentives for our peaceful and productive cooperation with society’s profit making schemes. Good wives are gone. Families are gone. A chance to advance is disappearing as corporations dominate every avenue of the economy. A chance to own private property is disappearing as property taxes mean we are renting everything from land to vehicles from the government. If we don’t pay, they either sell the land or forbid us to drive the car.

Don’t know about you, but I’m beginning to feel boxed in with my possibilities.

My options were go to school or have my parents go to jail through age 18, and after age 18 it was college or menial jobs, and once I had the magic rubber stamp from college it was a lifetime of debt servitude being a player in a system that doesn’t give a fuck about me or exclusion from the Ponzi scheme. Then suddenly, the rules changed and college degrees are worthless because so many people have been rubber stamped by the system.

Now my options have been further constrained: I can either accept my role as an Evil White Male “oppressor” who must be punished, or be outcast. My options are accept feminism and female superiority or be outcast. My options are to be a stranger in my own nation or be outcast. My options are to be a sexless gelding or be outcast.

I’m going to be an outcast, then. It is time to walk off this plantation. Walking off is easier than one might think. The steps are elucidated below.

Don’t know about you, but I’d rather be surrounded by these rather than the feminist fembots in America

Walking Off the Plantation

It’s time for a good old-fashioned slave rebellion. As Charles Bukowski said: Slavery was never abolished, it was only extended to include all the colors. Remember that, and remember it well because it’s absolutely true. Here’s how you can fight back.

Get out of debt, or better yet, never go in debt. As author Michael Mihalk wrote in an excellent book – Debt is Slavery. Debt is used to control people, especially men. No debt, and suddenly men don’t have a master to pay. Going into debt puts a man into a master and slave relationship with the bank and his boss. Once he has no obligations to worry about except food in his belly and his own entertainment, that little prick of a boss doesn’t seem so intimidating anymore and the incentive to put up with crap is reduced to nill. Bottom line, get out of debt and stay out of debt.

How does a man get out of debt and stay out of debt? He avoids bitches that run him into debt with their stupid wants. He extricates himself from debt servitude any way possible. Dave Ramsey teaches classes on it, look him up. Adopt minimalism, because it really does not take much for a man to live on. Live in a tiny house. Live in a tractor-trailer driving for 5 to 10 years. (An article on the Trucker Plan to freedom is coming soon.)

Get creative. These are only a few suggestions. There are many ways to get out of debt, stay out of debt, and live on next to nothing.

The days of the McMansion and the 30-year mortgage are over anyway, as companies would just as soon sell their own mother for five bucks. NO job is a secure job anymore. It’s every man for himself. It’s time to adapt.

Save, save, save. When a man doesn’t have debt, he has a marvelous opportunity to save an enormous amount of money in a short period of time. If debt is slavery, money buys freedom. Always remember that.

Get creative. Pull out a globe or Google search a map of the world. Look it over really well. You know what I think when I see one? My, oh my, just look at all the other places to be. I now know I don’t have to eat the shit sandwich Anglo women and my other masters are serving up. If you haven’t started traveling internationally, do so at your earliest convenience. You will see the destiny you have been given – to be a consummate consumer enslaving yourself with your own material desires may not be how you want to spend your entire life.

You may decide you want to live abroad. You may decide a cabin in the woods is what you want while becoming a Ghosting MGTOW. It really doesn’t matter what you decide as long as it is a decision to reject your role as society’s male provider module.

Walk off the plantation. Once you have some change saved up, a nice nest egg of $250,000 and up, leave. Blow the joint known as the corporate plantation formerly known as the United States of America and only come back to visit family and friends.

Do not feel guilty doing what is best for you, as the power structure ALWAYS does what is best for it. Women ALWAYS do what is best for themselves, too. (When they’re not hamstering over a bad boy.) The corporate-government complex decided it wanted to treat the United States as a bank instead of a nation, so the way I see it playing it smart and cashing out of the insane asylum for a life of leisure and hot bitches is just playing the game they created.

The bottom line: Doing what YOU want to do with your life instead of living the prescribed life script everyone is supposed to go by is up to you. Do you want to live a boring life buying, and buying, and buying again the same garbage over and over, and overpaying for a giant box you sleep in? Or do you want to live a life of excitement, romance, and travel while thumbing your nose at those holding the whip? It’s up to you to determine if you have what it takes to Go Galt.

Once enough men start checking out of the system, the masters will not be happy. But there will be little they can do to stop us because we played by their rules. This is what it means to Go Galt, to me. Empowering yourself as a man rather than being forced to empower everyone else at your expense.

We didn’t start this game, but I’ll be damned if we don’t have the power to end it.

7 Habits of Debt Free Men

Moolah

Having this much money saved is far better than owing this much

For the first time in my adult life I am not worrying about bills. That is an incredibly liberating and unusual thing to say in modern times. From the time a man becomes “legal” at age 18, debt is seen as “normal” as any bodily function. No sooner than he’s out of high school does he enter in to the rubber stamp system, taking on an average of $30,000 in non-bankruptable, crushing debt for an increasingly worthless college degree. After getting the magic paper, he then goes in debt for a car, a house, takes out some credit cards, maybe a few personal loans, and spends the best years of his life in bondage trying to pay for it all – with interest! After being taken on that ride, I decided, as you may decide, I wanted off that ride.

Debt has been “normalized” so that it could become a system of social control. Comedian Bill Hicks sums up the sad life of the average American debt slave in this routine:

If you want to understand a society, take a good look at the drugs it uses. And what can this tell you about American culture? Well, look at the drugs we use. Except for pharmaceutical poison, there are essentially only two drugs that Western civilization tolerates: Caffeine from Monday to Friday to energize you enough to make you a productive member of society, and alcohol from Friday to Monday to keep you too stupid to figure out the prison that you are living in.

Part of waking up from the programming of The Matrix is learning there is another way, a better way of handling money than the financial script sold to us all by the puppet masters in society. Learning the financial behaviors of Red Pill, debt-free men will go a long way in helping a man extricate himself from a system designed to exploit him.

Bullets

Escape the prison for your mind by learning the tricks that put men into financial bondage

The List

1. Debt-free men avoid buying on credit like the plague. The Red Pill man realizes debt is not a “tool” as much as an instrument of slavery. Rather than asking, “How much down and how much per month?” he looks at the total cost of each purchase – including interest. Suddenly, that low car payment looks like a financial disaster when a man realizes he will be paying an average of $7,000 in interest just for the pleasure of driving a depreciating asset, one that will look like every other car on the block in 6 months.

2. Debt-free men and save up for large purchases. Ironically, when I started saving money and had a fat bank account, my urge to splurge went to almost zero. The debt-free man can walk right by incredible “sales” of consumer items that are an incredible 50% off and not flinch because he knows it’s 100% off each purchase he does not make. He also saves up for large purchases, giving him bargaining power instead of being turned into a slave of his lender.

3. Debt-free men live within their means. Living on a budget is key, as is jettisoning quarrelsome, materialistic women as Proverbs recommends. If a woman is causing you to break your budget, she is not worth it. The Red Pill man is often a minimalist by nature, and can get by and even thrive on very little money. Rather than breaking the bank to impress with conspicuous consumption, he lives simply and confidently.

4. Debt-free men are not henpecked or irresponsible. Women can be financial disasters for men since they power 80% of wasteful consumerism in Western civilization. Four out of five spending decisions are made by or influenced by women. Feminists may hate it, but the economy proves they are still gatherers. The most important word the Red Pill man can learn is “no.” No, I will not buy that. No, you don’t need that. No, I’m not going to stop you from leaving because you can’t filch my wallet.

5. Debt-free men are confident. A man who is not a financial slave is confident, and his confidence grows as his bank account and investments grow. He knows if a problem arises or a job loss plagues him, he has ample funds to back himself up. By contrast, a man who is worrying about how he’s going to pay his payments on time and watches powerlessly as his paycheck comes in and goes right back out is a subservient man. He’s powerless to push back against his boss and his wife.

6. Debt-free men are freedom and goal oriented. There is nothing sweeter than freedom and freedom is responsible for a whopping 40% of happiness psychologically. Money buys freedom. The debt slave will never have freedom as he follows marching orders and begs for cash by filling out loan applications and makes monthly payments his entire life rather than taking control of his financial destiny.

7. Debt-free men are not materialistic. Red Pill men know that materialism and consumerism do not buy happiness. They also know that possessions often become a prison, inhibiting them from what they really want to do. It’s a weak man indeed that says he is willing to become a slave for some material crap that he doesn’t have the money for.

Fork

Take the road less traveled

Two Roads Diverge

Making the mental shift from having the psychology of a slave, begging for money from lenders to having the mentality of a confident man with money to back him up sounds simple, but for many men it is a tough transition to make. To me, I had to be neck deep in a mess before I decided enough was enough and I wasn’t living like that anymore. That was almost 10 years ago. Robert Frost wrote about choices like these in 1920:

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Debt holds men back, it does not empower them. Having money in the bank and investments takes sacrifice and time, but will lead you to a much better place in life. Take the road less traveled, the road that leads away from debt bondage and materialism. It will make all the difference. As financial guru Dave Ramsey tells audiences nationwide: You must walk to the beat of a different drummer. The same beat that the wealthy hear. If the beat sounds normal, evacuate the dance floor immediately! The goal is to not be normal, because as my radio listeners know, normal is broke. Normal is also being a debt slave.

Debt is Dumb, Cash is King

You must get rid of credit cards if you want to live a lifestyle of freedom

Only a few short years ago I was drowning in debt like the average American. Two-thirds of the public lives paycheck to paycheck. The majority also does not have $1,000 in savings in case there is an emergency, but many have a large screen TV that costs that much. And most people’s worst fear is a job loss.

As the Great Recession came along and nuked any remaining loyalty I had to my employer when he started treating me like a number instead of a human being, I realized things had to change. Here I had this wonderful, magical piece of paper called a college degree and my employer didn’t seem to give a damn anymore. It was the magical piece of paper I was told by the state education system would be my ticket to a prosperous future, now rendered practically Worthless in the modern economy.

I started to realize I just wanted to be free and didn’t want to play financial games with money coming in and money going out every month while I remained chained to my employer.

Extricating Myself from the Web of Debt

I was up to my neck in bills which I will readily admit that was my own fault, as Larry Winget points out in You’re Broke Because You Want to Be. Desperate to find a solution to a growing debt problem and an unreliable job, I went to the library and stumbled on a book by a guy named Dave Ramsey. I had never heard of him before, but his book seemed different than all the others. It wasn’t promising get rick quick nonsense. No, his methods were hard-assed, old fashioned common sense. It is the same brand of real talk Dave uses on his nationally syndicated radio show.

His Baby Steps will get you out of debt but they take time and they are not easy to do. They require lifestyle changes. For me, I had to flush the sewers of consumerism and conspicuous consumption out of my mind. I also had to break the nasty habit of using credit cards and start paying with cash. Yes, cash for everything. That was a huge and difficult change for me but it has led me to a much better place in life and it will do the same for you.

I had to get rid of car payments. I had to stop keeping up with the Joneses. But you know what – it was worth it. I was ridiculed for living on nothing by a good many people. But I get to laugh last because those same people are still going in to kiss the ring of their master every day while I have the freedom to do other things in life.

Breaking free of the bondage of debt can be done with baby steps

Baby Steps

If you check out Dave Ramsey’s plan, here is what he proposes. (He also suggests some good old fashioned rice and beans minimalism, which is a great step in reducing your food bill.)

  1. Rake up $1,000 to start an Emergency Fund
  2. Pay off all debt using the Debt Snowball method
  3. Put 3 to 6 months of expenses in savings
  4. Invest 15% of household income into retirement
  5. Save college funding for children
  6. Pay off your home early
  7. Build wealth and give!

It is a solid plan for the average married couple of the 1950s. However, thanks to Cultural Marxism and the HUGE legal risks involved with a feminized, misandrist family court system, marriage in Anglo-America is not advisable and men are understandably going on a marriage strike.

For the man who wants to extricate himself from a system that abuses him, a mortgage is also not recommended. It is debatable, but to me a home is a huge albatross around a man’s neck. Especially the sprawling McMansions that women want to impress their friends with. Better to rent and invest the rest, in my opinion. The days of sticking with the same employer until retirement are long gone, so chances are you will have to relocate and sell your home even if you decide not to travel the world as I have. Therefore, here is my revised version of the Baby Steps.

  1. Rake up $1,000 to start and Emergency Fund
  2. Pay of all debt using the Debt Snowball
  3. Save 25% to 50% (or more!) of your income by living a minimalistic lifestyle
  4. Invest a large portion of your savings in mutual funds
  5. Develop a plan to work abroad or grow a passive income
  6. Work as necessary and travel the world

As I have pointed out in previous posts, I realized my dream of living abroad where the women are of higher quality and there is more freedom. My monthly cost of living in the Caribbean comes out to around $450. You only need save $5,400 to take a year off work and enjoy the beaches, boozes, and bitches of many a nation. (This will become an increasingly powerful motivator if you start to travel. Travel is a very eye-opening experience for the single man.)

One of the main excuses I hear from people who study Dave Ramsey is, “But I’ll always have a car payment!” No, you need a Dave Ramsey beater car, or as I did buy a classic that you won’t be sick of in a few years and drive it forever. I bought a 2001 Firebird Formula back in 2009 and I am still driving that car to this day.

Because I learned some basic auto mechanics, rented cars for trips, and supplemented my daily commute with a low-cost ($2,000) motorcycle to save on miles and wear and tear on the car, I was able to amass enough money to liberate myself and run off to the Caribbean to try something new.

Your dreams may not be the same as mine, but the point is I know you have a dream and as we are about to see, money will buy you the freedom to realize it.

Credit

Get your wallet out of the vice grip by getting and staying out of debt

Debt Is Slavery

The most important takeaway from Dave Ramsey is his motto: Debt is dumb, cash is king. Treat it as a financial commandment.

Another Recommended Read which takes this thinking to the next level is Debt Is Slavery by Michael Mihalik. It is a powerful book written by an engineer who also decided to free himself from debt servitude. Each chapter reads like a phrase that should be chiseled into a stone tablet:

  1. Debt is slavery
  2. Time may not be money, but money is definitely time
  3. Possessions are a prison
  4. Be aware of the ongoing campaign to separate you from your money
  5. Money buys freedom (Very important concept!)
  6. Don’t sell your soul for a salary
  7. Own
  8. Spend less than your earn by controlling your expenses
  9. Save 50% of your salary
  10. Control your money or your money will control you

Debt Is Slavery details each of these financial commandments in a concise way. It is a quick read, but as the minimalists know sometimes less is more. There is no need to bloviate as many books do. As Einstein said: If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.

Mountain

Climb the mountain of financial freedom one baby step at a time

Financial Freedom

Once you have realized a debt free lifestyle, you may be like me and never see yourself going back into the prison of debt servitude again. There is no comparison to being in control, rather than powerless to stop running on a financial hamster wheel.

Money is freedom, a fact modern man has forgotten. Look at it this way: Would you feel freer with a $20,000 car you have to make monthly payments on or $20,000 cash in the bank do anything you want? Never trade freedom for possessions. Posessions become their own prison.

Some people go through the most incredible mental acrobatics to avoid the harsh truth pointed out by these financial authors, but getting yourself out of debt and staying out of debt will never steer you wrong. It can be done.
