I made this post while the election fraud was still being contested and, since it received lots of interest, wanted to turn it into a permanent thread. It details all of the actions one might take to deal with "the new normal" we currently live in.

Another point of this thread is to keep each other motivated and accountable for not skimping on it in the name of convenience or rationalization.

Treat your country as occupied territory and behave accordingly:

1. Civil disobedience


We no longer live in the era of "Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country." With the disappearance of any pretense of a common society, civil disobedience is a natural consequence.

Civil disobedience worked to bring down the British Empire in India, it worked to change the Civil Rights, and it can work in 2021 USA as well. It can consist of any massive or symbolic act of disobedience to the oppressive authorities. Some examples:

• A massive campaign where citizens refuse to pay federal income taxes
• Clerks refusing to perform gay marriages
• Sheriffs refusing to carry out anti-gun laws
• State officials refusing to implement federal laws on tariffs or green new deal
• Citizens refusing to follow coronavirus regulations

The federal government can arrest 1 person for not paying the federal income tax, sure, but could it arrest 1, 10 or 100 million?

On a personal level, make sure to minimize your interactions with the system whenever possible or reasonably safe for you.

2. BOYCOTT all enemy corporations

Creating a new Parler, new PayPal and new Facebook might all be useful and good, but they and the free market will not provide any relief. The free market has been failing at this task for decades, and it's not going to suddenly improve. Instead, what is needed is a hard boycott of all things hostile to the people:

• Deleting their Twitter, Facebook, Whatsapp, Instagram, YouTube, Gmail and other Google accounts
• Switching to a browser that's not Chrome or Mozilla and a search engine that isn't Google
• Refusing to buy anything from Amazon at all
• Refusing to use buy any physical product whatsoever from a woke corporation, whether it's a shaver or a fridge.
• Purchase local or foreign products if you have to, but once any domestic company starts SJW activities, they should be dead to you.

Yes, this might cramp your lifestyle, reduce your purchasing options, and drop you back to the stone age of 90s where you exchanged music on burned CDs and bought movies by sending cash in envelopes instead of clicking a button to elegantly access to a cloud-based product after a simple Google Pay transaction, but nothing other than a hard boycott will ever bring down the globohomo corporations. The free market does not cut it.

Stop funding the people who hate you.

3. Check out of all hostile society and entertainment

It is absolutely baffling to me that the NFL, NBA and MLB have dropped only 20% or so, and even that has been due to lukewarm reasoning like "oh well, they disrespected the flag" or "SJW propaganda is ruining the mood of the game", followed by slavish expressions of loyalty that imply you would return to watching games if only those things were fixed.

NO! Enough is enough! Stop gracing these abominations with your time and money, stop it forever, and stop it for the right reason: because they hate you and wish you dead.

The same applies to videogames, movies, series, charity, hobbies, NGOs etc. - if it has ever participated in SJW activities, i.e. expressed a desire to place you in a concentration camp and starve you to death - STOP glorifying it with your attention - forever!

The people who hate you do not deserve your time.

4. Distance yourself from regime supporters

Put any friendships or relationships with liberals on the back-burner and treat them as regretfully deluded informants of a brutal dictatorial regime who are dangerous and physically incapable of positive interactions with you.

Anyone who is an outspoken leftist should be cut off of completely. If you absolutely must interact with them (colleague, 'friend', etc.) you can be civil and pleasant but do not trust them with anything of importance.

In case of unavoidable interactions (family), be good to them, and possibly make attempts to subtly educate them on matters, but don't hesitate to simply refuse any political interactions either. This is the sole area where being the better person will pay off in the long run.

5. Get tough with your local politicians and pundits

It is no longer enough to tacitly support cucks in your local government who are right on 2 things and wrong on 8, or pundits who write "based" replies on social media but simultaneously stab you in the back when it comes to importing vast amounts of legal immigrants or defending Big Tech. We must no longer tolerate cuckservatives who would ban all illegal immigration and abortions, but would gladly involve USA in endless middle-eastern wars.

Enough is enough. Either someone is good and genuinely working to the benefit of the American people and their homeland, or they're not. There is NO middle ground.

6. Stop voting in federal elections

All federal elections are now hopelessly corrupted due to legalized mass voter fraud, and thus you should stop dignifying the corrupt regime with your vote. It doesn't matter if an amazing super-based populist candidate is running for Congress, Senate or President, and "might change everything". STOP VOTING in federal elections. Stop propping up the corrupt system.

Vote only for things that can still produce results in your own state, and only if they are certifiably fair, such as school boards, mayors, city councils, sheriffs and local prosecutors and judges.

For federal elections, let the turnout collapse to 20%. Make a complete mockery of it.

7. Accept that there are much worse things in life than poverty and low status

All of the above might have the unpleasant result of making you a pariah and cramping your lifestyle that used to be full of conveniences, but generations of "minorities" and dissidents have survived on welfare, manual labor and black market, and are still alive and no worse for the wear.

Do not concern yourself with your glitzy globalism-related business or keeping those few thousand YouTube subscribers if it means selling your soul to the devil, for it will come back to bite you, as it already did to many people.

The only true poverty is spiritual poverty.

Speaking of the new reality, I am also getting a sick feeling that most people might not be ready to start following this guide, or to even seriously consider it. Many are still either shell-shocked or psychologically incapable of seeing the situation in this way (i.e. admitting to themselves that their country has been occupied by a hostile force), and they might need more time or for things to get worse before they wake up.

I am honestly amazed by the amount of "business as usual" comments railing against the latest leftist gaffe, inconsequential policies and memory-holing of facts regarding past and future elections. However, I understand it might really be hard to let go of all that, especially if you actually live in the USA as opposed to just being an outside observer.

What steps have you taken in this direction? What about the people around you?

What steps have you taken in this direction?

I've deleted my Twitter and kept Facebook, but erased all of my information and then salted it with fake data. I might end up deleting it later, since it's not really required for my work.

I've also stopped buying anything from Amazon - I use it strictly for research purposes, then buy from any other source.

Regretfully, I have been too lazy to cut out Gmail. It would be great progress to circumvent Gmail for both personal and business purposes - my company uses G-Suite for everything so that part might be unavoidable, but I really need to edit all of my personal accounts all over the internet to use another e-mail that doesn't snoop on my privacy.

Already using Brave for my browser.

I've already cut off all leftist family members, other than the most immediate family, so no change there. Also not following any hostile entertainment already - I don't watch sports, and the only game I play is made by a Russian company.

What about the people around you?

As for my family, they're either unaware of what's going on or are cheering it outright. My best friend has already been on this path, so for him it wasn't much of a change.

A vast majority of people in my country are unaware that either their homeland or USA have been ZOG-ed.

Similar steps here.

I use Amazon only to get market value and information (in fairness, I think Am shines here, most of the products I've researched on Am regularly have more intimate details such as measurements than places like eBay or similar).

I deleted Twatter and Instantgram some time early last year, they were inhibiting my phone's performance. At the moment, I still have Facebook, but mainly use it for staying in contact with extended family.

I'm slowly deleting people from my FB friends list. Pre-election I had around 150, this morning I'm down to just a hair over 100. Most of those deletions were lefties with the Orange Man Bad sickness (and were vigorously spreading it). I used to (try to) engage these people with logic, to no avail.
Shortly after the November steal I offered those people a conciliatory congratulations (typically met with some sort of `healing` statement), observed for a few weeks, and then deleted them. Logic being that when the truly insane stuff from the Biden administration starts coming down the pipe, I'd prefer to be perceived as a non-threat that's off the radar instead of a large target.

Having said that, I could have used another year or so (ideally another four years) to be in a stronger position. It'll cost me a hair more NOW, but the tradeoff is that in a couple of months I won't be committed to any one location.

There's still time. The only question is how much longer. I'm very lucky I can work on preparing by collecting crypto, precious metals, networking, learning more about privacy, linux, and reading certain content up until the end of next month. There's a lot of free content out there look for it. Next year I will be moving to another state to escape the impending social and economic collapse. When you have vets like Terrence Popp and Matt Bracken saying this all can explode into violence that's a warning everyone here on this forum should heed. I think the only thing I can add is it won't be bad to pretend to be a normie and tell people about how their civil rights are being eroded. Historically you have to win popular support and show how the other side is oppressive.



He's right. The GOP bots grandstanding over things like the National Guard or some mistake Paliski or whatever made. Guys are being prosecuted for memes and pranks, Trump supporters are being doxxed by the msm with aid from corporations like Bank of America. We know the cowardly GOP who hate their working class base anyway won't do a damn thing over their base being sent to prison camps.

Commentators like PJW and Ian Miles Cheong constant tattling on the latest liberal lunancy or Biden action. Who cares at this point? WHO CARES IF BIDEN HAD ANOTHER GAFFE OR CORTEZ LIED ABOUT BEING IN THE CAPITOL OR ANY OF THAT NONSENSE?

We do not have the luxury of being snarky and irreverent anymore. We're political dissidents. We need to be sober clear eyed realists. What our "leaders" online should be doing is telling us what to do now. Not play-by-play commentary. How do we keep our identities online anonymous. How do we disconnect from tech giants like Google and Youtube, what are the alternatives to those tech companies, how to find a good woman to marry, how to have and raise kids on a limited income, how to make friends with the same political views, how to form a tight-knit local social network, what to do if you get doxxed, what to do if the CPA want to take your kids away, how to homeschool, what to do if your significant other is liberal, how to flee the country. How to prepare for a crash of the dollar, economic depression. Individuals can obviously search that information themselves but its leaders/influencers like Cheong or PJW or Cernovich or Nick that have the power to get a large number of people thinking in the same direction. They should put their energy into instructing people on the "what to do now" not play-by-play commentary.

We almost have to treat this like a natural disaster. If there's tornado coming towards your house you do not speculate why the tornado is doing what its doing or hating/mocking the tornado or point out to normies how the jews are responsible for the tornado. You just get out of the way then pick up the pieces in the aftermath of the disaster. What people on the right need are practical tips on how to live in these dark times. Hell even Roosh's video on making pizza is more valuable than what we're getting now. We do not need more commentary on how cringey SJWs are or how Biden is a terrible President.



  • Reduce your taxable footprint as much as possible, rendering as little to Caesar as possible. Spending less deprives them of sales tax.
  • Do home improvement projects yourself and buy supplies from local retailers, rather than big box mega-stores.
  • Don’t buy anything from Amazon. If you are still on Facebook or Twitter, depart for a platform that does not censor. Don’t use Google for searches. Cancel Netflix and Amazon Prime.
  • Boycott any organization pushing the BLM agenda or critical race theory.
  • Take a course or two at the local tech school in electrical, plumbing, or other practical skill, so you can do it yourself.
  • No matter how small your plot of land, learn to grow some food – the more the better. See if hydroponics is possible. Deny the mega-food industry your business.
  • Make friends with local farmers, source meat, eggs, corn, milk, etc. from them and pay in cash. The government cannot track the transaction.
  • If you need to utilize a contractor, landscaper, painter, etc. find a local guy and pay in cash. They often will give a discount and the government will not get their slice.
  • If your circumstances warrant, bartering with locals can satisfy the needs of both parties and keeps the government out of your business.
  • Only frequent small family-owned restaurants and always pay in cash, including the tip for your waitress. The government will absolutely get their slice if you pay using a credit card.
  • If you have money in a Wall Street bank, withdraw it and put it in credit union or small local bank.
  • Do not carry any credit card debt. Pay down your mortgage. Do not borrow to buy a new car. Buy a used car.
  • Reduce your driving, not to save the environment, but to deny the State gasoline taxes and toll revenue.
  • If possible, own some precious metals, in preparation for the inevitable collapse of the USD. Crypto currencies may also be a hedge but may be too risky for most people.
  • Learn how to communicate with allies using encrypted messaging.
  • Don’t wear a mask or get the experimental DNA altering jab. Ridicule those who do.
  • The IRS is a dysfunctional, understaffed, bureaucratic calamity of an organization. You are small potatoes. They don’t have the resources to check whether your return is accurate. If the Fed can print $4 trillion out of thin air, why do they need your taxes anyway. Act accordingly.
  • If you live in an urban area, and have the means, get the hell out, preferably to a rural area inhabited by like- minded people.
  • If you live in a blue state or blue county, and can do so, move to a red state or red county. As states raise income tax rates, move to states with little or no income taxes. PA governor Wolf just proposed increasing the state income tax by 46% to give my money to teachers’ unions. Florida is looking awfully inviting.
  • With federal, state and local taxes surely going to rise, if you are near retirement, and can afford to, just drop out now and stop paying income taxes.
  • As these Going Galt actions are sure to infuriate those wielding power, make sure you are armed, have firearms training, and have a sufficient supply of ammo. Be mentally prepared to defend your homestead.

Unfortunately, certain aspects of my business require a Facebook/Google presence in order to operate and compete successfully.

On a personal level, I have been making a concerted effort to patronize local business who of a similar mindset or at the least avoid doing business with those diametrically opposed. I really do not have friends or acquaintances that aren't of the same mindset, so that is the easiest aspect. I eschew most 'popular culture' activities anyway and chose to spend my time building my business and sharing time with the handful of people close to enjoying more simple activities.

A few things on my short list is to withdraw all but weekly necessary funds from traditional banking, obtain a firearms license and training, and spend more time on projects and activities that satisfy my personal curiosity and needs.

And you have some of us here who have done similar work even if it wasn’t the cool guy stuff.

I echo their concerns. The behavior and attitudes of the population is disturbingly similar to what I witnessed as a “Security Force Advisor” in Afghanistan and this became entirely apparent once the initial CV wave hit and people were smashing each other for TP.

It’s not one big thing. It’s a lot of small things such as how they talk about each other, the level of respect for other’s property, how much truth is valued, prevalence of theft and antisocial behavior, the way family bonds work...

The population’s psychology is barely distinguishable from how those in a sectarian conflict think and only one result is likely to manifest. The best outcome is to do a parent thing and separate the two tribes but that happening is a Hail Mary pass the establishment will do everything to stop.

What steps have you taken in this direction? What about the people around you?

We are disconnecting ourselves step by step. We will only buy the absolute essentials from here on out and only from a vetted list of stores. We disagree about shopping local...unless it's with a business you know has at least attempted to resist covid restrictions. We're also slowly locking down our data with things like private DNS, ditching our smart phones, etc.

We belong to a few small groups that are anti-mask and they've been trying to come to terms with things like deleting Amazon. They're struggling and it's hard to imagine how they don't see that their Instagram, etc. are also problems. These are the best of the best that we know too. Many of the religious leaders we know, for example, have said they're getting the vaccine.

It’s not one big thing. It’s a lot of small things such as how they talk about each other, the level of respect for other’s property, how much truth is valued, prevalence of theft and antisocial behavior, the way family bonds work...

I'm not going to say I'm a sage or something but my wife and I read situations pretty well. We tend to be ahead of the curve. With covid, I've never felt more like we are on the cusp of very possible genocide. While many here want to move to red places, we're desperately trying to move very far out of the way. Call that paranoid...I honestly think it's historically naive to think it's not a real possibility today and here.

I have never used gmail or hotmail in my whole life, and for many years am on specifically privacy defending providers. Facebook was dormant for years and is now gone, WhatsApp is now gone.

Not sure about the not voting thing.. If there is a good candidate running, why not

I'm currently contemplating what to do with twitter and instagram. Have barely used either of them but had them for perhaps a decade. The instagram in particular is like a small monument to a time in my life, but there are no relevant contacts on it really and the same for twitter. I never installed the apps of those and using them in browsers is not as bad. Still, twitter deleted @realdonaldtrump which is a reason to delete it, and instagram is owned by facebook against which I have a particular grudge for constant deception that they care about privacy. I hear flickr is a good alternative if you are into photography, which I am to some degree.

A vicious boycott is a good idea.

Pleased to say I have managed to use airbnb for research purposes but always circumvent it. They are into globohomo, forcing radical acceptionism on apartment owners.

I enjoy my youtube account a bit too much to delete it (google account) and most of it is not politics.

Also order very little on Amazon and sometimes research and buy elsewhere.

Mozilla makes an open source browser and email program but I also think one day they will betray everyone and push an update that does some terrible evil. I'm just not sure about Mozilla..

@Handsome Creepy Eel gmail has to go, if you don't want Mozilla Thunderbird perhaps try https://www.mailpile.is/ with some provider from the other thread would be interested to hear how that goes

Great post - I'm doing these things but not the boycotts.

Boycotts are not effective. These corporations are all attached to and dependent on the power structure. Their first priority is to that structure, and only secondarily to making money. So your boycott will never result in them changing their behavior in any way that goes against zog.

It's much more important to look for and support small businesses that are not part of the system. You're doing much more good by shifting 10% of your purchasing to small Christian family businesses than 100% boycotting Amazon just to give your money to Walmart and Target.

Nobody should be spending any money on things like Netflix and Disney - but that is because they don't sell anything that isn't toxic.

But wouldn't a massively over-leveraged business based on achieving monopoly status through 20 years of losses collapse if its monopoly status were suddenly removed? These organizations are so over-extended that they literally require the volume to keep functioning.

They've already committed to vast, expensive plays based on predictions of +20% market growth year after year. But if that +20% suddenly became -20%, they'd find themselves in serious trouble.

The point is not to force Amazon to change its behavior, as of course that will never happen. The point is to make it go bankrupt, or at least to make it less significant so that they lose their deplatforming power and influence, and of course to get the moral satisfaction of not giving your money to an evil organization.

I moved to Ukraine in summer 2015 because I was convinced Hillary would be the next president and things would then deteriorate at an accelerated rate. I loved following the 2016 election cycle and imagine my surprise the morning of November 8th 2016... I can still remember going to bed completely depressed and sad the night before, and then waking up early after sleeping badly and screaming for joy early in the morning "HE F#$KING DID IT" in my post Soviet S hole apartment as I refreshed this very forum on my phone.

Anyway, I made preparations 5+ years ago and Trump's presidency gave me more time than I thought I had to get my affairs in order due to the strength of the dollar during his tenure. Life here is amazing and I can't put into words how fortunate I feel to have left when I did and been able to settle in place that is so far from western depravity.

Dissenter is now my browser and Searx is my search engine. Big support for Mr Torba.

Have closed and removed payment methods from Amazon. Will use smaller UK business and Ebay at a pinch.

Gmail is in the process of closing down (take time to transfer everything) and I have set up a Tutanota account which aint perfect but is a lot better than the dreaded Google.

I dont use any (a)social media.

I am not sure yet about voting but it is likely that I will stop. My local MP seems to think it is good to vote against helping poor kids get food in school he is a scumbag. Boris is a semi literate globalist buffoon. Starmer is a pedo enabler.

This. They're going to steal elections, but at least make them work for it.
However, delegitimizing elections is far more useful in the long run than "making them work for it". For more details, read this:


Renounce free speech? Renounce democratic rights? YES. Just like voting, these 'rights' come with strings attached. In fact, they are little more than hooks upon strings.

Natural human instinct is to try to hold onto anything that one has been given. But most democratic 'rights' do not benefit non-leftists, except as variably effective talismans against democratic wrongs. Rightist activism is a useless cargo-cult of leftist activism. "Freedom of speech does not mean freedom from consequences", unless you're a leftist. And rightists are constantly being sacked, ostracised and harassed over their politics – although conservatives claim to be flabbergasted every time it happens.

I would say that the main purpose of these 'rights' is to encourage reactionary elements to self-identify, so that they can be socially disadvantaged and politically marginalised. Those of us who dare to dissent in the open can make no use of them; those who just want to live quiet lives are duped by the illusion of possessing them. Chairman Mao got to pull this trick on the Chinese – once. Then they wised up and stopped trying to talk their way out of communism. The trap is less dangerous in Western democracy, but rightists walk into it every day, gradually reducing themselves to an inferior social caste.

Even the right to bear arms doesn't entail a right to use them.
Beyond this, what we call 'freedom' generally reduces to the liberty to go about our business. This sort of freedom has, in truth, been granted by most rulers to their subjects for millennia. And the past four years have not been kind to the delusion that modern Westerners hold it other than by the sufferance of state power.

Russiagate showed that the West can do what China does, i.e. construct informational siege defences (albeit with vastly less justification). Then Corona-chan showed us that our governments can revoke all our freedoms at the drop of a hat, and put us under mass house arrest, out of sheer panic and bureaucratic hubris. Those who claim that Corona-chan is a 'psyop', designed to "make us give up our freedoms", should understand that the real psyop is the one that has convinced us that we have any freedoms to give up.

Now, don't get me wrong. Once we stop voting, we should keep dissenting and redpilling people. We should squirrel away firearms (in the US), find ways to hold onto our assets, and keep as much control over our lives as possible. We should take what we can get out of the state, and exploit all possible paths to doing this. And if we must fight, then we fight. What I am saying is that we should not claim any of these prerogatives as 'democratic rights'.

Once you claim democratic rights, you must have democratic rule. You must keep voting, so that your 'rights' can be upheld. And no matter how bad democracy gets, you must live in abject terror of any alternative (except the purified Platonic Idea of democracy, which has never been tried, etc. etc.).

'Freedom', in this case, truly is slavery. Once you no longer claim anything from democracy that you could not hope to get from any other regime, then you will finally be able to unplug from the Matrix and make the jump from discontent to dissidence.

But this is not easy. An incel might complain about the sexual revolution, but he would resist a RETVRN TO TRADITION, because it would take away his OnlyFans e-girls long before it found him a wife. And so it is with democracy: the more it dumps all over us, the harder we cling to its backside. The need to take the blackpill, to accept that we must get to the good by going through the bad, is depressing at best and terrifying at worst.

So we should initially expect to see a knee-jerk rejection of no-voting by the Right, based on emotional objections. We'll give a little smorgasbord of these now. Slavishness! Cowardice! Do-nothingism! Rationalised retreat! Mere capitulation! Cuck cuck cuck!

I will admit to retreat, and to rationality, because it is quite rational to retreat from an impossible position. Maybe also capitulation, as regards the dead horse that is the conservative cause, and all futile attempts to flog it into life. But I will not accept words like slave, coward, and do-nothing. At least not from people who can't even bring themselves to stop voting for a government they despise.

As for cuck (which I've pre-empted a fair bit in this post), the truth is that Western man is a cuck by default. He cannot marry a woman, in the traditional sense, except by her unilateral sufferance. He cannot control his own children, and he cannot defend his community against criminals. He must defer to an endless parade of 'empowered' groups, i.e. state clients and catspaws. He enjoys endless luxuries, thanks to modern technology, but his ancestors knew that luxury is as enervating as hardship. All of this could be viewed as mere misfortune, and good personal qualities can redeem most of it. But the rot seeps into the soul of Western man insofar as he thinks he is free.

Thinking he is free, Western man is lower than a slave, because he is mentally enslaved. He is worse than a coward, because he fails the basic rite of manhood: passage from a child's fantasy world into reality. He does less than a do-nothing, because his actions do him harm, which he must then rationalise as benefit. This is why he cannot worship action, momentum, the blind ethos of 'doing something'. He has to stop doing what is wrong before he starts doing what is right.

If Western man would be free, he has to start at the beginning. He has to take a second look at all those passages in the New Testament, in which Jesus says to turn the other cheek when struck, hand over a cloak as well as a tunic, go two miles when forced to go one mile, etc. Yes, I know. Many people on the Dissident Right cannot stand this stuff, and would just love to replace it with some allegory for mass political struggle. But if these words amounted to a pacifist manifesto, they would not be contradicted by references to the justified use of force in the Gospels. I would say that they are on the same train of thought as "render to Caesar what is Caesar's, and render to God what is God's".

What belongs to Caesar is your body and worldly goods; what belongs to God is your soul.
The name 'Caesar' can be generalised to the centre of political power, as opposed to that of religious authority. As for how one would go about rendering one's soul to Caesar, presumably it would involve a religion and a ritual based on political power. These, I would suggest, are precisely what democracy and voting have become in the modern West. If the people were really sovereign, then things would be different; but this is not so, ergo the belief in popular sovereignty amounts to a religious cult of power.

And voting is its most important ritual. The 'right to vote' is a hook upon a string, baited with a false identity: the free, sovereign democratic citizen. This identity is a corruption, or caricature, of the Christian idea of the soul. It enthralls the soul, forbidding it to think any thoughts or perform any actions that are incompatible with democracy. And it does so by promising the summum bonum of worldly goods – namely, political power – in pursuit of which every actual worldly good must be churned up in a struggle that is as endless as it is pointless.

As principle, no-voting liberates our souls from the democratic religion. As strategy, it aims at the preservation of our worldly goods against the democratic state. But none of this can be achieved without the sacrifice of the false democratic identity.
Consider that the Soviet Union didn't collapse because of invasion by a foreign country, or mass armed revolt of its populace. It collapsed because most of its citizens checked out.

The enemy literally prints our money and gives it to their friends. They can just keep printing and financing whatever they want. Regardless - guys like Zuckerberg and Bezos would rather go bankrupt if need be than to cross the elites who allow them to function.

Have you even wondered how the porn business survives? Have you ever heard of a person so porn addicted that they actually spend money on porn? Who finances the production of hundreds of thousands of hours of porn that is generated annually? Porn consumes 30% of internet bandwidth. That is as much as all of Netflix and YouTube combined. Who pays for all of it?

When they want to they can prop up huge systems using printed money.

Boycotts and voting represents trying to change this evil system. I've come to the conclusion that it can't be changed. We need to just start withdrawing, and build something separate, and hope the current system collapses on our lifetimes.

Consider that the Soviet Union didn't collapse because of invasion by a foreign country, or mass armed revolt of its populace. It collapsed because most of its citizens checked out.
While true, we are not at the point where the only way out is a collapse. There are plenty of courageous and freedom-loving Christians in the country. We ought to push harder to save the nation before we check out.

I like the sentiment but the most well armed citizenry in history just had a critical election overtly stolen from them and no leftist politician has had so much as their house vandalized (not endorsing such an act), which happens to “right wing” politicians and pundits every year, unprovoked. The normal venue for the formal airing of grievances, the courts, aren't even pretending to defend the Constitution anymore and just flat out refuse to hear any case that actually matters. This well armed citizenry also had their churches shutdown against their will. At this point I'm confident in saying NOTHING will get white conservative America to do anything actually violent besides mass starvation, an event that wouldn't even uniquely target them.
