SOVEREIGN MAN

Six countries with freedom and opportunity

December 2, 2010
Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

A few days ago, I wrote an article on the merits of productive citizens leaving their home countries that are no longer aligned with the values of freedom and independence.

I find this ‘starve the beast’ approach to be the most effective non-violent method to affect change… and needless to say, this notion stirred quite a bit of controversy.

Among many other blogs, the article was also noticed and re-posted by ZeroHedge.com, one of my favorite financial websites. Many of the comments on that site were downright angry, calling me cowardly and weak-minded for even suggesting the notion of expatriation.

Needless to say, I found this reaction to be a desperate reach by the institutionalized, and the editors of ZeroHedge.com agreed to publish my response.

    Not sold on expat. Expat-ing to some other country may buy you some time but that is the best you can hope for. The coming turmoil will sweep away every currency, every government, and every nation. Civilization as we know it will collapse worldwide and barring divine intervention not a single human being will be left alive on earth. So unless you plan on expat-ing to Mars, buckle up, it’s all downhill from here!

      It is a question of whether things deteriorate in all places at the same time, or whether there are comparatively stable locations out there at any one time. I’ve no objection to migrating my way through a couple of decades of crisis; it seems that there have historically been a number of exodus events (Europe to South America, visa-versa decades later).

      I’d rather avoid the turmoil by being elsewhere, if possible.

    Perhaps this is an example of situational awareness versus normalcy bias. It’s difficult for most people to overcome their normalcy bias. Thanks for the great, thought provoking article.

    Sri Lanka?
    You must be joking.
    Lovely country, but not to start your own business, any idea what you have to bring to even get in there?
    Used to be ok with a nice pension and savings with Golden Key and their 30% interest, but the days of ponzi schemes are over, even in SL.
