“Are ya winning, son?”
Men were created to win.
We need goal posts, team mates, coaches, and a scoreboard.
The Christian West is losing. Western Christian Men are losing.
But the game is not over yet. And there is another game plan…
This is a practical game plan for Western Christian Men, encouraging us to go hard for the win.
How do we win?
1) Escape Debt & Wage Slavery into Wealth & Purpose Work.
2) Accumulate & Beautify Land to find Meaning & Belonging to your People & Place.
3) Rebuild & Reclaim Local Institutions for Cultural Design & Dominion.
First things first:
We’re not going to get out of our mess by our own strength or wisdom.
God loves you, and He has a plan for your life.
Cry out to God, ask Him to show you how much He loves you.
Cast your burdens on Him, and watch Him care for you.
You will make it brother.
But not by your own strength.
Discouragement & deception are the only tools the devil has.
Keep your hopes up.
Escaping Debt Slavery
Debt-free men are uncontrollable.
“Lay aside every weight that hinders you…” – Hebrews 12v1. Debt is not a sin, but it is a weight.
“Debt is the #1 obstacle to wealth building.” – Dave Ramsey
Wide spread use of debt inflates housing & other product pricing. This keeps us in a wage earning, consumer spending cycle.
“The rich rule over the poor, & the borrower is slave to the lender.” – Proverbs 22v7
“…And you shall not borrow.” – Deuteronomy 28v12
It is our lusts which enslave us. Contentment & Purpose sets us free.
If you love money & debt more than God & family, you will send your wife to work for another man, & your kids to be raised by women that hate you.
I do not agree with Dave Ramsey’s steps 4 & 5, as well as his recent plunge into wokeness, but as far as getting out of debt is concerned, his steps 1-3 are proven.
> Take on No New Debt.
> Keep an Income & Expense Tracker (My wife & I use a shared google sheet).
> Pay the minimum payment on all your debts.
> Stash a $1000 Cash Fund.
> Make a Vindictive Will & buy Life Insurance.
> Get intense on repaying one debt at a time, smallest to largest.
> Sell/downsize/simplify your luxuries & liabilities.
> Once debt free, Stash up 3-6m Cash Fund (enough $ to live on for 3-6months).
Escaping Wage Slavery into Wealth & Purpose Work
The devil wants you and your purpose… dead.
And if he can’t kill you, he will try to enslave you.
Most men work jobs that censor them, and keep them enslaved to the popular culture.
The Israelites in Egypt worked morning until night and had nothing to show for it. It is the same for many Christians today.

> Pursuing Meaningful & Purposeful Work
What are your top 3 talents? top 3 passions? top 3 people/groups?
Ask God for ways to serve your Favorite People with your Talents & Passions.
Focus on providing products & services that you can control, rather than selling your time to people who control you.
> Developing a 10year, 10Million$ High Energy Vision
If you had $10mil what would you Be/Do/Have?
Do this exercise weekly to break out of your slave mindset.
Lack of money is not our problem. It is lack of Vision+Faith, over time, that is our problem.
God doesn’t give you a vision to match your budget. He gives you a vision to match your faith.
What are things I can already start doing toward the things on this list, over the next 10 years?
Keep the Vision. Keep the Momentum. For 10 years.
>Developing 20/80 Health Habits
What are the 20% of habits that will bring me 80% of the results when it comes to Nutrition/ Conditioning/ Regeneration?
Our stomach is the first master to overthrow.
If we have never fasted or cut out an addictive substance, we will have a hard time quitting our addictions to porn, debt, wage, & approval.
Wendell Berry. Localism. Belonging to your People & Place.
Jonathan Shuttlesworth. Spiritual Authority by Earthly Ownership: Taking & Holding Territory as a Cultural Dominance Strategy.
Propertarianism. Aristocratic Noblesse Oblige.
Kiyosaki. Land as wealth. Fiat Inflationary dynamics. Generational Inheritance.
> Move to YOUR people & place. Get out of the modern commercial squalor cities & move to a homogenous town or rural area.
> Look for “Dirty Smelly” properties &/or motivated sellers.
> Make Below Market Value offers based on what you would be willing to take that property for. Trump says make offers that make you feel uncomfortable.
Kiyosaki’s ratio is 20 offers, 1 will accept.
> Don’t despise mere beginnings. The tiny house guys have affordable ideas to get on your land. Many rural towns have land below $50k.
It is the responsibility of a man to live somewhere beautiful.
And if he cannot afford a beautiful place, to make a poor place beautiful through his labor.
Contributing Beauty & Excellence to your People & Place to experience Meaning & Belonging.
Wrath of Gnon. Traditionalism. Agrarianism.
Beauty increases value & attracts care.
> No junk. Clean your property. Cleanliness is next to Godliness.
> Dress one degree better than expected. Our presence conveys respect on others.
> Permaculture 101. Redeem monoculture wastelands.
> Traditional Architecture 101. Log Cabin Nationalism! Stop buying trailers.
These are the institutions we have personal control over.
We don’t have to fight anyone for them. Its just a matter of doing the things.
> Marry a virtuous woman & have as many children as possible.
> Move to your People & Place
> Start & Steward your Home Economy
> Offer your valuable services & products to the local economy
> Arm yourself & make friends of your neighbors
> Attend local church & events
> Become a regular at local businesses, reduce spending at global corps.
> Organize a Local Investment Fund to purchase squalor land & buildings, & start needed industries.
Reclaiming Local Institutions
In a democracy the tools of war are Banking, Media, Academia, & Government bureaucracy.
These institutions have been captured & weaponized against us.
These are the institutions we have to fight others for control over.
> Increase your Status in your Honor Hierarchy (video).
> Encourage your church to push the Local Economy & shun global corp consumerism.
> Encourage your church to lead Local Media/ Arts/ Education Narrative
> Encourage your church to run & back candidates for EVERY Local Office & Bureau Job.
> Encourage your church to start a debt-free community Bank.
