It is very difficult when you have lived and built a life in one place, knowing the people around you and the territory, to even entertain the thought of moving. Inwardly you will weigh the possible positives and negatives, family and friends may try and dissuade you, however if you are alert enough to recognize the signs and heed the "calling" when it is "time to go", then it is vital to consider that for your next step in life, or your health, your freedoms or the wellbeing of your family...it is time to move.
One always strives to be able to move or change from a position of strength. Being able to plan, go for a visit at the new place on your own time, as your own decision-can make the transition less painful. Not being rushed, not being forced to leave is a better stance to begin anew somewhere else...but this is not always possible.
Whether due to a natural disaster, a personal tragedy, a political movement or war, being "torn" from a place with special meaning and attachment carries with it a grief that is painful. Anticipating pain often stops people from making the move. Being comfortable is a form of seduction. There were many in countries like Russia, Germany, Poland, Austria, Hungary, Romania, Syria, Lebanon, Chile, Venezuela who saw the signs but wanted to hold on to their homes, their positions, the familiarity and memories of the place they knew. By "waiting too long" they lost their chance to escape, often resulting in a fate worse than relocation.
Although my own life has required me to move over 100 times, and work as well as live in 26 countries, travel in more than 60; for most of my life (since my family moved there in 1964)-Texas has been my home base. Finishing middle and high school in Houston and re-locating my family to Dripping Springs in late 1998, when it was a reasonably sized town kept my connection. Returning there kept me in touch with Texas even after being away for years.
Whenever I return to Austin, I re-walk places where my children, when they were children, and I used to walk, to play, to explore, to go to school, to celebrate. The same is true to a lesser extent when I visit Houston. I maintained a storage outside of Austin, with my few worldly possessions, since 2008. A number of my friends have moved away, passed away, or drifted to other circles over the years, but I still consider Texas as my place to return to from overseas.
In my opinion, Austin has been changing for the worse since 2005. An influx of people from other states, countries and lifestyles has crowded out the "Authentic Austin" and made it all but unrecognizable. The PC police infiltrated, the crime rate escalated, the cost of living rose, traffic became a serious problem, people stopped being so "neighborly". The plandemic brought out the closet snitches and deranged bullies. The unique mixes of live music, art, places to eat delicious food, open range living, gun rights and casual pace were "cancelled". Tension, restriction, suspicion pervades. All the "signs" are here. It is time to move before what is coming next. For an outlier like me, this is no longer "safe" territory. It no longer feels like home.
Still it is wrenching to leave. I feel I am leaving more than Texas, I am leaving behind the "American" way of life, freedom and possibilities that I grew up with and were nourished by, in Texas. But you cannot fight alone...for long. When conflict comes you need to be where there is a network of like minded people, support, similar values, skills and trust. I can no longer trust Austin will provide these for me.
Trying to warn friends and certain family members about what is happening and what will most likely come next is often frustrating, but I continue to persevere. After all, I was fortunate enough to be born and grow up in the best times of America. I know what living is and not just survival in the USA. I have experienced freedoms of movement, of expression, of choice. I know the benefits of excellent education in both public and private schools and universities, where discourse was encouraged, discipline respected, privacy and high standards were expected. I had great, loyal friends over the years-most of whom died too soon.
It takes time to develop such friendships, trust and shared experiences. The draconian physical distancing which disrupts possible human exchange, spontaneous human conversation and interaction, also hinders human relationships. Being able to strike up introductions as well as discussions in person is vital for human contact and understanding. People are self censoring or pretending to be so involved with their spy phones (machines) that they won't look up and "risk" the possibility of responding to those in a line, or on public transport or even say "hello" while out walking. There is less chance of speaking or meeting new people or discussing issues without the opening of places where people with similar interests might be...restaurants, sports events, libraries, gyms, music venues, rallies, weddings, graduations, celebrations, etc.
Yet, I/we need to continue to "fight" for what we know can be America. Deciding where you can do this is important. Take a look at where violence, looting and protests have already happened and been allowed to escalate in our USA. (see map below). Remember which cities and states locked us down most severely. Which local politicians, law enforcement implemented strict controls on religious practices is important to know for "next time". Which states, jobs, venues mandate certain medical screenings such as "getting vaccinated".
There is a massive diversion underway to distract the majority of people from realizing how their humanity, freedoms and economic livelihood is being snatched away under the guise of "plandemic" or "civil rights/privilege" or "social credit system". For an indepth discussion on these points I am including a link to the interview between David Rose of LondonReal and David Icke that happened on Sunday, June 14, 2020.
For those who want to "cut to the chase" start at 20 minutes in:
Be prepared mentally as well as in other respects, for what is coming. If it is time to move from where you are (and that includes moving your thinking if it has become stuck) make the efforts and strategically plan while you have time and resources. It may be time for you to make your move now, before the Fall, while the roads are still open. If some of you decide to actually leave your country, consider the possibility that you may not be able to return.
