Of all 36 ways to get out of trouble, the best way is -- leave. - Chinese Proverb
I have recently had discussions with folks fed up with where they lived - and they were afraid.
I have quoted them one piece of wisdom - regardless of what country they lived in.
A country will always treat tourists better than citizens.
If you are increasingly uncomfortable as a citizen -- leave.
Keep your money or business in a safe and low tax country, keep your citizenship in a country that values freedom, keep yourself a PT -- perpetual tourist.
(As an example ; America and the UK are offshore tax havens to the world - except their own citizens.)
If you live in a country that believes you are its property - just because you were born there - find some place that will let you own yourself.
From the Simon and Garfunkel song, 50 ways to leave your lover:
just slip out the back,Jack
make a new plan,Stan
don't need to be coy,Roy
just listen to me
hop on the bus,Gus
don't need to discuss much
just drop off the key,Lee
and get yourself free.
If you are staying for a few special benefits - count their true cost. Cattle feeding at a government trough must expect to be herded, penned, branded, milked, and/or slaughtered.
I can't help but believe a lean elk wandering free is more fulfilled than a calf being fattened in a stall.
You may have to walk out of the slaughter house - but it can be your life.
