The most common question I get from readers is, "Okay, I'm
convinced of how bad it is. So what do we do about things right
In fact, there is a great deal to be done right now.
On the one hand, you need to ensure that you personally prepare
for the coming hard times. That is a book in itself, but
involves ensuring the safety of yourself and your loved ones.
Some will resist. Some will think you nuts. But, there are
things you can do quietly and covertly, even in that
Most importantly, you must plan now and be ready to implement
that plan the moment the wheels come off.
If you live in a city, you need to plan how to get out in the
event of a catastrophe. Immediately. Not the next day. Not that
night. Immediately. Remember what South Central LA looked like
just hours after the Rodney King verdict was handed down.
That s how quickly it will degenerate.
No freeways. They will be death traps. You need an escape route
that takes you through neighborhoods you know will be safe for
a time. Being among the first to leave will help to ensure that
roads are not blocked.
You must have a plan in place for assembling your family for
the trip, regardless of the time of day that it becomes
Assemble a "bug-out" kit and keep it in your trunk.
Store enough gasoline in cans in your garage to get you to
wherever you already have planned will be your retreat. Recycle
the contents every six months, because gasoline degenerates
fairly rapidly. Keep your escape vehicle gassed up and
well-serviced at all times.
Make a list of the things you can grab while the family is
being assembled. Keep the list in the bug-out kit. Make a copy
and keep it in your sock drawer, in case the car is busy
picking up kids. Think apocalyptically today.
You won't be capable of rational thought when the need arises,
but you will be able to follow your list. Include any gold and
silver you might be keeping stashed away (if you don't have
any, then shame on you). Include weapons you will need them,

advance, even if you treat it as a big joke, to arrive
on the doorstep of friends or family in the country, if that is
what you must do. Otherwise, they will not be happy to see you.
Arrive with enough of something or other that makes you a
valuable and welcome addition to their enclave. Food. Gasoline.
Bullets. Gold. That sort of thing.
If nothing ever happens, which I consider exceedingly unlikely
(that is, it is inevitable, in my humble opinion), then you
will have wasted nearly nothing. In fact, you will make money
on the appreciation in gold and silver that has been going on
and will continue for several years. If something happens, a
few hours' preparation today may spell the difference between
life and death. Yours.
If you've a mind to, now would be an excellent time to move
your family to an area likely to be among the safer in the
country, regardless of what may happen. That will not include
either the Southwest or the Deep South. Nor will it include any
city of any serious size. Nor should it include areas within
100 miles of any coast (can you say, "nuke-induced Tsunami?").
The more paranoid will want to stay at least 400 miles away
from Yellowstone Park.
As you will learn in the next and last chapter, "New America,"
I expect that whatever survives of White America will be carved
from the Northwest and the heartland.
Given America's recent predilection for invading small,
defenseless countries, it is not at all unthinkable that we
could be nuked in retaliation by somebody. Remember that
nuclear fallout would be carried hundreds of miles by
prevailing winds, which generally flow east by southeast. This
consideration alone eliminates all of America except NE
Washington state, N Idaho, NW Montana and bits of northern N
Dakota and Minnesota. Get on the internet and track down some
projected fallout maps from an all-out nuclear strike against
the US and you will be amazed.
Why not move to another country altogether? Because, given
America's current ambitions for empire, there is no place that
really is safe from America.
Only three areas could hold their own against America: Europe,
China and Russia. Europe has become as multicultural as America
and worse regarding civil liberties. The latter consideration
makes Canada equally undesirable, aside from the weather.
Australia is as bad as Canada. China simply isn't going to
allow you to immigrate and assimilate. That leaves Russia.
How ironic that the country we grew up hating and fearing, the
one we saw as being the epitome of repression and poverty, now
shows signs of being the last great hope for White freedom.
Russia is throwing out the last of the communists and learning
how to prosper with true private enterprise. America dares not
attack or invade Russia, don't forget.
A move into the far-western reaches of Russia, around Moscow
and St. Petersburg, might well be a good investment in your
future. I expect practically nobody reading these words to move
to Russia, but you might make sure you and your family members
have your passports up to date... just in case. The day may
come when you will be able to secure passports only with great
difficulty, if at all. Wait until you need them and I guarantee
you won't have enough time to get them. Yet another cheap
investment in a possible future.
New America. An idea whose time has come.
