Accepting and Living with the Death of the United States
The Decline is coming. All the financial indicators show this, and the cultural degeneracy is equally self-evident. Our generation will not be as wealthy as our parents.
But despite these grim times, it’s not only possible to survive, it’s possible to live well. Part of this is a change to your frame of mind: accept the fact that you’re never going to live in a McMansion (mortgaged to the hilt, a slave to your job, with rotting drywall to replace, and a lawn to mow every week…). But what you can do is live in a number of different apartments, in different cities, enjoying all that life has to offer. Poorer than the Baby Boomers? Certainly. But you’ll be living a life that’s far richer.
Clarey provides a brilliant how-to guide. In his last book, Worthless, he did the job that School Guidance Counselors are supposed to perform, but systemically fail, providing much-needed advice to the young of America. In Enjoy the Decline he offers critical advice for all twenty-somethings about how to prepare for the future, and live a worthwhile life.
The book’s chock-full of the sort of information They don’t want you to know, as well as links towards more in-depth sources – and no matter how grim the material, Aaron’s light and entertaining prose is the sugar that helps the medicine go down.
