Don’t participate


No more brother wars.

No more fighting for contemptuous rulers.

Don’t join the military. Discourage your sons, nephews and others from enlisting.

If you’re in, get out when you can and do a half-arsed job in the meantime. If deployed, keep your head down. Don’t be a hero for a nation that no longer exists. Do the minimum you can get away with.

Let them fight their own battles from now on.


The game is rigged. In certain situations you know you can’t win and your life will be forfeit no matter what you do.

Don’t join.

If you’re in, plan your exit.

If you stay for the pension, understand that you are rolling the dice. You’re one bad traffic stop away from being prosecuted for sainticide.

This might not apply if you serve in a local area where you enjoy strong support from the people. Your people.

Civilian readers should rethink how they assist police from now on. Previously you might have been the sort of upstanding citizen who would grab a fleeing thief, phone in suspicious activity or help a copper in need. We need to adjust to a world of arbitrary, who/whom law. Who is fleeing whom? Who is conducting the suspicious activity? Who is the copper in distress? These are salient questions now that blind justice and the rule of law are dead.

They make the rules, we just have to play by them.


Understand your situation and start adapting now,while the turd is still sailing through the air, rather than later once it’s hit the fan. We are all one booster shot, errant comment or evil instruction away from getting shit-canned.

If you’re in a vulnerable MegaCorp or public service job, understand that you are on thin ice. Remember why you are there: to stack cash, make connections, learn skills and pack the resume. Start preparing your parachute now.

The first priority is your emergency fund. Being able to survive without work because of a ridiculous mandate for a year or two gives you massive clout. If your mates can do the same, you are a force to be reckoned with.

The second priority is your Plan B. When the Day Comes, have an idea about what you’re going to do next. There’s no excuse for being blindsided from now on.

The third priority is your side gig, which might help with priorities one and two.

Do not expect forty years of loyal service, a gold watch and a generous pension. We are all on borrowed time and need to prepare accordingly.

Do not dedicate yourself to any position to an extent that is not in your own interests. That was admirable back when it was socially adaptive but now it’s not. To survive, we need to start behaving like everyone else.


High trust societies are built on volunteerism as much as the free market.

Long before social welfare existed, churches and benevolent groups helped the needy. Local communities fought fires and floods, organized dances and sports, and supported law enforcement.

Today you’ve got to ask yourself: what community?

Are you volunteering to help people who hate you? Are your donations going to people who hate you?

A lot of people hate you.

If you think your community is ‘your people’ and appreciates and reciprocates your efforts, fine.

If not, it’s time to step back. Loving your enemies doesn’t mean helping them to pillage your cities.

Maladaptively altruistic people need to change their thinking.

Save your community activities for your actual community – the people you live alongside whose support you could rely upon in an emergency.


I’m not as anti-tax as the average person. I don’t mind paying my fair share if it’s being well spent. Tax is the price of civilization, right?

Only works if everyone else thinks the same way. They don’t.

Pay only what you legally must. Get advice on how to pay less.

The opposite is also true: if you’re one of those people normally too honourable to accept any benefits, start accepting them. It is your duty.

You are depriving your rivals of resources to crush you.

I reached this revelation when I was forced to pay high capital gains tax in Australia even though I wasn’t there, couldn’t apply for benefits, and they effectively locked me out of the country while they used my money to turn it into a dystopian hellhole.

Consular services, you say? They don’t lift a finger to help people in trouble (like those they locked out) and anyway, renewing an Aussie passport will cost you AUD $301 (USD $228) plus an overseas surcharge of AUD $135 (USD $102). For a shiny new passport that won’t even let you freely come and go from Australia.

Your taxes at work.

And for those of you back home, do you think Australian government services are the best in the world? They ought to be, because you’re paying bureaucrats the highest salaries in the world.

In the first edition of my book I didn’t talk much about tax, instead leaving it to advisors to sort out.

In the second edition I’ll do further research and talk about it much more. It’s not just about protecting your wealth, it’s about trying not to feed the elites who want to crush you under their boot.

Starve the beast.


Here there is nuance.

At the next election, ask yourself: will my vote make any difference? Might a small turnout be more effective in undermining elite legitimacy? This is used to great effect in a lot of Third World countries where governments are embarrassed by widespread boycotts of rigged elections.

United States: Remember that retail politics (Republican vs Democrat) is mostly showmanship. They are all elites and they all hate you and they all want the job to enrich themselves.

In the 2022 Congressional elections and 2024 Presidential election, ask yourself: is this worth my while? Will the votes be fairly counted? Is there a candidate worth a damn? Would refusing to vote be louder?

These are questions, not answers.

UK: Remember that the supposedly Conservative government tried to wriggle out of Brexit and locked you down endlessly, even after everyone who wanted a vaccine got one. Not to mention the present immigrant situation.

Is there a party that’s on your side?

Canada and New Zealand: At this point I don’t know what to say to you.

Australia: Remember that governments at both state and federal levels, of all major parties, locked you down and banned protests and travel. To my mind, there’s no party with a chance of winning that cares about me at all.

I guess you could vote strategically in the Senate using proportional representation or help a minor party gain influence through preferences in the House of Reps. Up to you.

Voting is compulsory in Australia. That means you need to turn up and get your name crossed off in order to avoid a $20 fine. The ballot is secret so no one knows what you do with it.

For informational purposes only, the traditional way of voting informal is to leave all boxes unnumbered, scrawl ‘THEY’RE ALL A PACK OF CVNTS’ across the ballot and add a crude illustration if you’re artistically inclined.

This will lighten the day of bored counters and scrutineers. The one time I did that, there was an invalid vote marked only with the frantic message, ‘THE ALIENS ARE COMING!’ All scrutineers and officials got a laugh out of that but the joke was on us as the message turned out to be true.

All countries: Remember that local and state elections can have a much more significant impact on your life than national elections. An individual can also make a bigger difference in the small pond of town hall, especially if the locals are predominantly on your side.

If you want to get involved, that would be the place to start.

Conspiracy theory

If I didn’t know better, I would wonder if the official left pushes increasingly wilder Woke policies in order to provoke conservatives into voting, thus continuing the illusion of legitimacy for the regime. I am thinking especially of CRT, police defunding, vaxx mandates and that sort of thing.

Perhaps active disengagement – abandoning hostile schools, leaving unpoliced areas, quitting jobs – would be more effective than performing the villain in the next electoral pantomime.


Our olicharchs crave the feelz of ‘doing good’ and being respected.

The most basic way to undermine them is to deprive them of our affirmative consent. Make it clear that we see them as clowns and that we want nothing more to do with them.

They can tolerate anything but irreverence.

Let them have their stupid wars, massive debts, corruption, riots, tranny story time, arbitrary law, high crime rates, crumbling infrastructure, collapsing schools, illegal surveillance, tyrannical restrictions and all the rest of it.

Don’t let them cannibalize the last resources of our high-trust society to do it

Forget about the State and focus on the freedom, safety and wellbeing of your own place.

A remaining problem

Cloud People are fleeing the urban chaos they’ve created for better areas, where they try to replicate those same failed policies. This hinders action at the local level.

Get to know your new neighbours and ensure that those who can fit in are given an especially warm welcome.

    I’d say there are no ‘must do’ (positive) rules or laws for a high trust society. There is a negative rule/law: shun lying. This was well observed by Europeans and Christians, as you learned from early age: God will punish you if you lie. Even if your father or teacher actually did the punishing. Now the churches are Christian just by name, and hold up the lies of feminism, multiculturalism, etc.

    Maybe some [olicharchs crave the feelz of ‘doing good’ and being respected] but I think their motivation comes out of the fear to have to face a french revolution, american civil war kind of future. To loose everything, all their property and maybe even their life. So they steal money from the middle class and throw it at the underclasses which have nothing more to loose. As long as the poor are fed and have a roof over their head, there’s not gonna be a revolution.

    In NZ and Canada, vote nationalist, and support the dissident right. There is no party for you, and no home in the capital.

    For a good portion of people who join the military. that IS their community.
    That is why it is so hard to leave (at least, for us this was true).
    You have a sense of obligation to the people who work with you (and later the people who work for you).
