12 tips on swapping career for freedom
Standing up for what you believe in isn't easy, but is now necessary
I had to abandon my career in tech and telecoms because I knew something was wrong and I refused to shut up about what was happening. Four years later I find myself immersed in a bio-information war using the most hideous weapons mankind has yet devised — mRNA injections and nanotech. These can create synthetic diseases and customised attacks on your mind and body.
Because of this unconventional and unrestricted war, everyone noble and everything righteous is going to be deplatformed in some way. It is also a war of attrition and perseverance: every time the enemy steals your livelihood it is an opportunity to make another comeback. It is determination to overcome that makes you a warrior, not your innate strength, nor even your courage.
Without determination those won’t get you far, as only the “easy wins” are in reach. Over and over we have to endure the “death cycle” of the Progressive narrative: outrageous, absurd, depraved, idiotic, and boring. We are also about to face monumental sadness as our friends and family discover what they have done to themselves under the sway of lies.
For if the Devil can’t take you out, he will wear you out: the fight for truth and justice grinds you down and chews you up. But there is no alternative: cowardice, submission, and surrender are not an option. Many of you have written to me as the “vaccine” mandates bite and people are fired or quit. You now face the need to let go of your stable past, and take on a revolutionary outlook in your work life.
Based on my experience from the last few years, here are my tips on giving up your conventional career investment and professional standing to fight for freedom. I hope you find them helpful.
1. Expect betrayals and lost friendships; let go.
Those who think you are in a “QAnon cult” or “Cult of Trump” don’t (yet) realise they may have joined a death cult. The force of denial means they will be able to justify to themselves the most awful behaviour. Don’t take it personally, even if it feels that way. You have freedom of association, can legitimately choose not to associate with those condoning child abuse or coerced medication.
2. Be prepared to ask for help when you need it, and receive it with grace.
You aren’t meant to carry the whole load on your own. If you have had to walk out of your job or career for ethical reasons, then you are not only entitled to ask those around you for help, but are obligated to do so. When I have run short of resources I have been unafraid to say I was in need, and as a result I have always had sufficient, even if it is insecure.
3. Stay engaged with hobbies and creative/spiritual activities that bring continuity and peace.
We are facing potential bereavement on a scale we have not encountered before, and losses to human potential that are outside of our cultural experience. Our personal lives may well be in upheaval, with much loss to grieve. The antithesis of death is creativity, with procreation just being one form! Whatever fun thing animates your creative spirit, that is what will sustain you through hard times.
4. Allow yourself to be surprised by fresh opportunities and different directions.
I never expected to become a dissident, artist, or even writer. I once thought that my future was in computer languages, not English prose and photography. Saying goodbye to one path and letting go properly gives you the space and freedom to express other skills and follow different routes. The shift in ethos to “freedom fighter” invites a deeper rethink of work direction.
5. Pick a few “essential luxuries” to protect and ditch the lifestyle costs.
Letting go a corporate career, and those annual bonuses and discount stock purchase plans, can be a financial shock. I went through an extended period of below minimum wage work and loss of independence, and came out the other side. If money is tight, we have to cut back. Identify what your one most cherished form self-care is, and put the budget into that. The rest has to go for now.
6. Keep putting yourself out there; be bold and loud so opportunities can find you.
The formal and institutional world naturally brings us into closer contact with collaborators. As you withdraw from that, if only to help construct a parallel society founded on stronger morals, you will face inevitable isolation and the risk of despondency. Draw up a stakeholder map, reach out to those you respect, start having conversations. Speak up on every public platform you have. Obscurity is your foe.
7. Forget your reputation as you previously understood it and any kudos from degrees, awards, accreditations.
I have a fancy degree, and I think the certificate may be buried in my parents’ garage rotting away somewhere. Nearly all educational and professional institutions are now tarnished by wokeism and sullied by the stench of corruption. If you define yourself by your PhD, your prize, your license — then you are in trouble. The only reputation that matters is whether you had virtuous values and stood by them.
8. Never ever apologise for putting conscience first; you can’t be sovereign and be a “pleaser”.
You are going to upset a lot of people by speaking truth and refusing to comply with their perception of “normal”, “acceptable”, or “consensus”. That they have been lazy, compliant, or gullible is not your problem. Sovereign individuals cannot simultaneously be fixated on any specific group or collective alliance. Let your relationships shift to reflect your autonomous development. Hold strong boundaries.
9. Remind yourself of the “guilt debt” you don’t carry; payoff is self-respect, not approval.
By leaving you formal work role and its trappings you are taking an “image hit” up front. All change involves loss and gains, and the gains can take a while to realise. Those who stay put and compromise themselves are running up a kind of liability, and it will eventually have to be paid. Outside approval is for dog training, not warriors. You have to manufacture your own approval from a “zero balance” clear conscience.
10. Find mentors, supporters, guides who will help you think through the complexity and keep encouraging you.
I have built myself a network of advisors, and have a couple of weekly calls where I chew things over. This gives me structure and containment of my own troubles and crises. The real allies are those who will tell you what you don’t want to hear, and have conversations that are not necessarily comfortable. These friends are loyal in a way that your prior work colleagues generally are not.
11. Build new routines around your new role. Just because you don’t have an employer doesn’t mean you don’t have a job to do!
I typically work for a few hours to mid-afternoon, have a walk, eat a meal, then work until the early hours. I avoid scheduling meetings and use instant messaging to rendezvous with people, but will set the day and a reminder. I tend to do “proper creative” stuff weekends and Mondays, photography on Thursdays, and admin on Fridays. You will find your own pace and format for productivity. You don’t need to be constrained by the traditions of the office now you are free from it.
12. Civilisation didn’t arise by people following the rules.
We are in the process of dumping lots of despotic rulers and their endless rules. There is an exploitative system run by criminals that seizes your assets under a false pretext, and now funds a lot of genocidal activity. In the past you would have followed every procedure and become anxious by going “out of process”. Now you have to make a personal judgement about the legitimacy of those rules. It’s OK to be “unruly” in this war.
