We keep getting comments and emails to this effect and given the current state of the world, we think it’s about time for an official response.
For example, last week Marc Lee wrote:
I used to really enjoy reading your site. It was a happy, jolly, fun site. I do not know what has happened over the last few years but all the articles just have a negative angle – more towards social and political commentary.
I know its your site and you can do whatever you want with it, but just thought I let you know how other may possibly feel about the type of content that is being published regularly. And seems very little to do with a single dude traveling.
My response was as follows:
Quite simply we’ve been there and done that as far as chasing the cheapest beer and the easiest, hottest girls. We’ve visited most of the countries we want to visit and many of those that remain aren’t interesting (Saudi Arabia, anyone?). Furthermore, this site has never been solely about where to travel to. It also covers the why and the how.
The western world is falling to pieces at break neck speed and it’s becoming precariously close to a situation where you will need to travel if you want to keep your life and your health. It seems to us, like many others (see Roosh V and Mike Cernovich for a couple examples), that now is the time to be more serious and/or shift gears a bit.
The mainstream media has become the propaganda arm of corrupt governments. If all of us don’t speak out about important topics nobody will. The bottom line, If Hillary gets elected and starts World War III we may no longer have the freedom to travel freely, enjoy cheap beer, beautiful beaches and beautiful women. And Hillary is just one of so many threats facing the world today.
Corrupt, criminal, treasonous politicians are destroying Europe and drowning it in a sea of filthy, robbing, raping, killing muslim migrants. I wish we could go back to more carefree times but I don’t think we can, not right now anyway.
We certainly welcome those that want to write about those topics, and we still do from time to time, but now is the time to focus on defending our freedoms. There will be plenty of time for fun later once we regain our liberties and establish some safe zones (not to be confused with “safe spaces“).
Western civilization itself appears to be imploding right before our very eyes. These other topics are more important than where to find the next cheap beer. If that’s all you care about, check the archives. Even if the material is dated, ask a question, someone will probably let you know if the landscape has changed significantly.
The free market seems to appreciate what we are putting out because traffic continues to grow. Either way, we don’t care, this is a hobby not a living for us.
