Expatriation Ragnarok – My New Guide For Expatriating in These Dark Times

Hello everyone, Markcus McCloud here. You may know me better as Ghost from the Happier Abroad forum. I think it is evident that expatriation is harder these days, as the condition of the world continues to rapidly deteriorate. Ten years ago must seem like the good ol' days of being happier abroad. Where is there left to go that is still relatively good? How can you get started going abroad if you are starting at zero? And once abroad, how can you get what you need out of it? I talk about these things and so much more in my new guide, Expatriation Ragnarok.

The successor to Expatriation Apocalypse (2015), Expatriation Ragnarok expands on why the West is declining and collapsing, how we got into this mess and where it is leading, the ultimate economic doom that may be coming over the next few decades, and how to make the most of going abroad when things are so grim and difficult.

I have always had a focus on the 'common man' who is starting from zero or near zero. There are not enough resources for these alienated men who need help the most. Expatriation Ragnarok is the same – a guide for those who are at bottom and just want to get out of the West before it is finally too late.

I do not offer predictions and prognostications about the future. What I am doing, however, is exploring what I see as the most likely dystopian possibilities for the West and the world. We do not know the day nor the hour when the West will splinter, or when going abroad won't be feasible at all anymore. But we can look at the warning signs and see that things are heading in that direction.

The window to expatriation looks to be closing, and the world is in a worse condition than it was even just a few years ago. Get working on an escape plan before it is too late.

Expatriation Ragnarok is available here on Amazon:

Marrying A Filipina? Here Are Three Things To Watch Out For!

This are some tips about marrying a Filipina lady from a Filipino guy that I know. Some very interesting insights that you need to know if you are headed this direction with a women from the Philippines.

It's not a big surprise that many Americans today prefer to abandon ship when it comes to love and swim over to the other side of the world in search of their elusive soulmate. The relatively toxic culture of the West when it comes to marriage and commitment is an open secret, hence the collective eyes of its men are all turning to Eastern countries, one of which is the Philippines.

The Philippines is a relatively poor nation, but assuming you're not planning on finding economic opportunities there, they have a lot to offer when it comes to women. Marrying a Filipina is a joy that needs to be experienced firsthand, but some men get blinded by the euphoria and fail to see the negative aspects of the wedded life. Here is a list of three cultural norms that may make you hesitate when it comes to tying the knot.

Intrusive family members – in the States, everyone's expected to pack it up and move out of the house when they reach 18. Not so in the Philippines. It's relatively common for people to live in their family home up until they're ready to leave, which may never be. Parents also remain in close contact with their children even after they've started their own families. While you may be able to get a private abode for you and your Filipina wife, you can never really get rid of her family ties, so expect lots of unexpected visits and unwelcome opinions from her extensive network of busybody relatives. This may be a good thing if you enjoy all that company, but it can prove to be a massive irritant for those who prefer to be left alone. Above all, do not make an enemy out of your wife; it's like declaring war to an entire tribe. You won't survive!

Tampo – this is a strange phenomenon that is endemic to the Philippines. Tampo is a local word that roughly translates to "silent treatment," and it is a weapon employed with cruel precision when a lover's quarrel breaks out between you and your beloved Filipina. Rather than engage with you in a screamfest like many scorned American women, the Filipina will use the opposite tactic: ignore you until you're literally tearing her hair out in trying to get her to say something. A typical tampo (displeasure) will last for several days, and the only way to break out of it is to apologize excessively or threaten her with something severe enough to compel an interaction (like divorce). Speaking of divorce…

No divorce – That's right. Other than the Vatican, the Philippines is the only nation on earth that does not have legalized divorce. You can get an annulment, but that usually takes a few years and will require you to prove a legitimate fault such as adultery. If you decide to marry a Filipina in her home country, you're going to be in it for life, so make sure that you don't exchange vows unless you mean every word of it.

Is marrying a Filipina all fun and games? Obviously not. There are some days when you're going to feel as if you'd rather get hitched with a Las Vegas gold-digger than spend one more minute in the house with your wife. But you know what? These cultural quirks, while frustrating, are mere quibbles when compared to the benefits: a doting spouse, a well-kept home, a nurturing mother, and a devoted partner who stands by you through the good and bad times. At the end of the day, dealing with a few snakes are worth it when it means living in paradise.

Life is a Scam – Enjoy Going Abroad While You Still Can

I'm going to tell you a secret that isn't so secret: life is a scam. If you are red pill, then you probably know that by now. But do you understand the depths of it? That is what I want you to realize. I'm not saying that life is a scam only right now, at this particular point in history. I am saying that it was always a scam. Sometimes the scam is a little better or a little worse for you, but it is always a scam. And it is specifically a scam for men.

What do I mean by that?

The system seeks to extract as much from you, a man, for as little as it can give you in return. Even for some red pillers, this can be a scary rabbit hole to go down. This system has always been in power – it is a defining part of humanity's nature. You can apply any label to it you want. Some call the system gynocentrism or feminism. Others call it statism. Some just call it society. Let me repeat: the world seeks to extract as much from men as possible for as little as it can give you in return. That is the essence of the system no matter what you call it. This has always been true and it will always be true.

You give the system your labor – it wants to pay you as little as possible.

You give the system your imagination – it wants to give you as little status and recognition as possible.

You give the system your courage – it forgets you after you have made your sacrifice

You give the system (represented by a woman in this instance) your commitment – it gives you as little sex as possible.

You give the system your children – it gives them as little of their father as possible.

This does not at all conflict with the idea that “things used to be better.” Why not? The system has at many times throughout history been forced to give a lot to men (jobs, status, sex, etc.) if it wanted to elicit anything from those men. Just because things were better for men doesn't mean that this same system was not in power. It was. It just had to fulfill its end of the bargain.

And you know what?

That this system is in power is not even necessarily the problem in itself. As long as the system gives men plenty of what they need, it works.

The problem is that things can get too unbalanced. And this is where we are now.

The same system is in power, but we have now reached a point at which the system can get by with giving men NOTHING.

Now at this point you may be thinking, “yes, but wait, when the system does that it means men drop out of the system! That means MGTOW rises.”

And you would be right. But here's the thing: the system is now able to push men out and still perpetuate itself. It is able to do this with technology. In fact, this is one of the big issues in the world today: technology will replace workers, and the economy will be automated with robots and other machines. Our fate hasn't fully been determined yet, but for now this is what it looks like to many.
The system has become so good at discarding men that most men cannot even get a scrap from its table.

A menial job - any job at all? No. A girlfriend – any girlfriend at all? No. A country, a home that he can call his own? Big NO.

Historically speaking, this You have probably heard or read that Rome collapsed in part because of feminism. Yes, and feminist leanings were responsible for the decline of many great empires and countries. But Rome did not have a system that was capable of not needing men to keep the lights (err...candles?) on. And this is precisely the problem for men now: the system doesn't “need” them.

Now, that doesn't necessarily mean that because the system can discard men now that this system can go on this way ad infinitum. (Pushing men out means innovation slows and stops, and populations decline, and the social fabric tears – which long term has historically meant collapse.) But for the time being, the system has men over a barrel.

We're fucked and we know it.

I don't think this will change in our lifetime. So what to do in the meantime?

Going abroad plays into this because in many countries (undeveloped or 'third world' countries mostly) some semblance of traditional life exists. The system isn't able to push men out the same way it does in the first world. There are a number of reasons why this is so, which we won't go into here.

But here's the kicker: this is not the great option it once was.

Expatriation as a solution to this imbalanced system is declining – and steeply. Don't get me wrong, it is still far better abroad than in, say, the U.S. But it is getting worse. As countries “develop” they become more like dystopian societies of the Western world. And we don't know how bad that situation is going to get, but there's no reason to be optimistic about it.

Hope has all been extinguished and the future is over. Acceptance can bring you peace with the bigger picture, but here, right now, you still have to live your life and make choices.

If at all possible, go abroad and experience the ghost of real life before expatriation becomes entirely pointless.

Life is a scam, and the best you can do is leverage yourself into a position that is better relative to what you had before. The system is present and in power everywhere, but there are still some countries where it has to give something to men if it wants to perpetuate itself.

Go abroad while you still can.
