If you’re considering Asia, as far as South Korea and Japan go... unless you’re willing to get married to a citizen there; you’re going to have a difficult time retaining a visa.

The governments want the brains to come and help develop the countries, but they don’t necessarily want those same people to live there permanently.

How is this "woke" movement affecting your everyday lives negatively? Like how bad can it be? Can you give examples?
Can't you just turn off the TV, stop reading news on the internet and live peacefully, or is it so bad that you are affected in real life?
In theory you could do that, yes. I'm happy to let everybody live in their own bubbles.

The problem is that my taxes are financing them and their communist agendas.

Moving to another country is not a solution unfortunately due to stricter exit taxes. 90 years ago Germany used the same thing against jews (Reich Flight Tax - Wikipedia). We all know how that ended. History repeats itself.

Oh and of course today's exit tax is much higher than the taxes against the jews.

There is plenty of opportunity in the UK, but culturally it's not somewhere I want my kids to grow up, the woke laws / politics suck.

Any suggestions of thriving and common sense practicing cultures and locations would be appreciated!
Depends on what factor you are looking at.

If you are looking at Economics and taxes and values associated with that many eastern societies are at the far right of the spectrum. The idea of high distributive tax is a morally alien concept here because you are morally only responsible for your bloodlines. Everyone else is a stranger.

But If you are looking at freedom to badmouth ethnic or religious minority then you are one step closer to getting national security officers knocking on your door.

“STFU and make money”. There are a lot of such business friendly places in the world.

@theag any plans to move somewhere else?
Not currently. I nearly moved myself and my business to Malta a few years ago but then decided against it.

These tax havens sound great on paper, but actually living there is a completely different thing unfortunately.

I actually would like to stay here and still haven't lost hope. But I think Germany (and other western countries) need to hit rock bottom first, before they can climb back up.

IMO that will happen over the next 4 years in Germany if the green party wins the elections this year.

So the current plan is to build a greenwashing non-profit as a front for the actual business to profit from the upcoming socialist government and switch back to capitalist pig mode after they ran the country into the ground.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The UK is #7 on the Heritage Foundation Index... The United States, the country that embraced the individual, that declared independence, that became the most prosperous economy in the world... Is now #20 and falling.

You think the UK is a woke shithole? Try the USA! I haven’t heard a political figure talk about small government in 5 years. The real pandemic here is Stockholm syndrome (bootlicker) where people honestly still believe they live in the only “free” country, whatever the hell that means anymore.

We are taxed to oblivion. We get Biden or Trump, a couple of old socialist idiots, telling us what to do, at gunpoint. For that “privilege,” we pay them half, or more, of what we put into this world.

Most Americans are now empty shells of nothingness wandering through life on someone else’s terms, doing what is expected of them by someone more important, never questioning the status quo, and parroting what their slightly different socialist group thinks.

Is "greenwashing" some sort of bathing equipment for socialists? :rofl:

I'm just curious, where I live in Europe the woke movement hasn't spread much and its importance isn't looking to become significant any time soon
Usually when people say this, they mean they can't say racist shit anymore and they're sad. Boo f*cking hoo.

I'm a person of colour so it's not about racism - it's being implemented into laws now, people are being imprisoned for twitter comments and memes where I am - be grateful that you are ignorant to the bs here

At this day and age, governments have given the OK for kids and pregnant mothers to be injected with experimental mRNA injections, and are planning on using a "health" passport for daily life, effectively creating a two-tier society but the second tier doesn't have alternative options. Do you trust THOSE people to determine the policies in which you live your life? I don't.

This is a case where I won't argue the argument, since I have to accept the premise that they're trustworthy enough to implement such "laws" about language policing. And I don't.

To @Leron I sadly don't have any concrete advice, but I could offer this distinction: Do you plan on living inside the EU, or outside the EU? If inside, take a look into Hungary. Language is a huge pain but I remember good things about it when I lived there for a year or so.

Thanks man. I'm open to anywhere. I've heard good things about Hungary also, I am also considering the Middle East or Eastern Europe

If like you say you are a "person of colour", then Eastern Europe is not the place for you. I've heard good things about Hungary though.

Yeah, if I was white I would move there, I'm thinking the middle east because of my racial background

I was thinking about your post the other day Leron. You see the thing is I am almost 50 and grew up in the UK in the 1970s and 80s when the country was definitely not woke.

Back in those days I was chased by racist skinheads as a child, called racist names sometimes by my teachers at school! The programmes on TV were casually racist, programs like "Love Thy Neighbour" a comedy show about a white couple dealing with the fact that a black family had just moved next door, was one of the most popular programmes on TV and boasted a viewership in the multi-millions.

"Comedians" like Jim Davidson and Bernard Manning had prime time TV slots and their material was 95% racist and the next day at school people would laugh and repeat their catchphrases, calling me things like "chalky" and "coon", asking me how far my dad could throw a spear.

Of course like many black people I had to pretend to find it funny as well, it was that or be in six fights a day. I had to save my fights for the more serious infringments.

The fact is, it was acceptable to be racist and to discriminate against non whites. Then we got PC and "woke" and that shit stopped, or at least retreated to the dark cess pit minds of the racists, they no longer felt emboldened because society at large showed them that it was not acceptable to go out P*ki bashing or shout n*****er on the street.

So yeah, if you won't to move to a "less woke" country and you are not white, well my friend I feel you will suddenly realise that "woke" or "PC" are not bad things. Like anything they can be taken too far and trust me, I've seen some stupid woke shit lately. However the alternative is a country whereby at best you get the short end of the stick just because you happen to have been born with a different pigmentation in your skin, at worst you die.

The end of the 80s in the UK was signified by the killing of black teenager Stephen Lawrence, whose only crime was to be waiting at a bus stop with his friends, when 6 white thugs ran up to him and shouted "what what n****er!" and stabbed him through the heart. That was when we said enough is enough and the PC movement began in earnest.

This is why I suggested you try living in Ukraine or somewhere in the Balkans whereby they still live like 1970s Britain, go there experience that and then you'll see woke aint so bad. In fact the most vociferous opponents of "wokeism" tend to be white right wingers, think about that...

Peace.

This is good advice. It was getting to me for a while. Switching off Twitter, the BBC, and all the papers apart from the FT headlines helped.

Twitter is literal hell.
Yup, it is. Gives one a seriously distorted version of the world. Most of it's rubbish anyway i.e. you're arguing with a sock puppet in a bot factory in Ukraine.
