Yeah. Nobody can really make those decisions for you. It's one of the most notoriously complicated issues in history. I chose to leave the country, others may wish to start a revolution or simply live an agorist lifestyle or just be a sucker and play the system while ignoring the vast injustices, which I don't recommend. I wholly agree, however, that America is not one of the best places for an agorist lifestyle, not even close. I've considered South America and a few other places. I hear society as a whole is pretty happy in some of those countries, like Colombia, but I've never been there so I don't really know. It seems most of the developed countries are out of the question as far as freedom is concerned, but China's pretty close to a developed country, and you don't even have to really interact with its bad parts if you stay in the big cities so it's not hard to live as if it is a fully developed country. You just have to get used to the local customs, and some of them are a bit hard to swallow, like the work environment, which I could go into more detail about but it's kind of long so I'll wait and see if anyone's interested.
The point is, find a place that suits you or fight if you really want freedom. Passively accepting it might work out in your favor, but for the obvious reasons it wouldn't be the noble thing to do, and besides, why risk it? The system might chew you up and spit you out, even if you try to merge with it. Everyone's situation is different, which is what makes it so hard to start any kind of revolution, and this particular system has the unique advantage of being inundated with mass media and a ***** belief in freedom that really doesn't stand up to scrutiny but is reinforced by the constant barrage of propaganda from the media that allows us to believe that what we have now is still anything like what the founding fathers gave us and that we can actually do something about it. To me, that's the worst part. Before we can do anything, we need to get rid of this false notion that we can change things through entirely passive means like voting. We need to stop using the system to change the system.
