With things looking dark and fascism on the rise across a large chunk of the world, an obvious question emerges.

Imagine your country is next in the firing line - for some of us little imagining required - things are turning very very bad. For some reason you imagine you will be amongst those to suffer.

What is your escape plan? Realistically where would you go?
Imagining here a world where everything is as it is today but your particular country goes a bit Gilead.

New Zealand is probably your best bet. It's left off world maps so often they might not even be hit by any nukes.

I assume you mean political mess, not war.

Back to Eastern Europe. If I have to live in a fascist state it is safer to live in one where I am part of the ethnic majority.

Kind of tough immigration rules though? Also not a great economy I hear.

I'm pretty fucked as I don't have any viable getaways, but I'm a white male so I expect to be on the opressing side. I can hide/exaggerate my Catalan accent depending on which strand of local nastiness ends up on top.

I am fortunate that I'm a remote employee working for a British multinational with many offices worldwide. The company did a very good job of relocating all Ukrainian and Russian employees in the immediate wake of the invasion, so I know they'd be willing to work with me on moving.

I'd likely head to Canada or the UK.
The medievals were only too right in taking nolo episcopari as the best reason a man could give to others for making him a bishop. Give me a king whose chief interest in life is stamps, railways, or race-horses; and who has the power to sack his Vizier (or whatever you care to call him) if he does not like the cut of his trousers.

Government is an abstract noun meaning the art and process of governing and it should be an offence to write it with a capital G or so as to refer to people.
