Here’s an objection I’ve heard once or twice:
It doesn’t matter if you do all this Alpha Male 2.0 stuff. It doesn’t matter if you’re “detached from the system” or whatever, or if you have location independent income, or you aren’t legally married. It doesn’t matter if you live in South America or Asia. If the Western world collapses, everyone will be screwed, all over the world. You will be too.
First, it’s important that you read this article and this one, since these two articles directly extend to what I’m talking about today. They both describe the specifics of what it means when I say that I’m “detached from the system.” These are things like self-employment, nonmonogamy, zero or little debt, location independent income, no employees, and various other things. My book describes exactly how to design a lifestyle just like this.
