This book is awesome. I am a little depressed I can't go and follow the advice being stuck in the Army for 2 more years, but, I know what I'm gonna do: Get a useless degree in Europe on the government dime, just so I can party and have fun with that GI Bill. Anyway, this book may make you cry. It will force you to deal with the grim, inescapable truth: It's gameover. There is no hope for America, it's beyond fixing. It's finished. Many Real American's will not have the strength to accept it, but if you are wise, you will. But after the mourning (I personally was not sad reading it, because I've known America was done for about a half year now, and pissing everyone off on base with my assertions that this is so), you will have a realistic hope. You'll be happy. You will save your time, money and LIFE. This book may literally rescue your LIFE. One great thing about Enjoy the Decline is that it does not only focus on economic decline, but also the decline of relationships, morals and more. The economy is broken, families are broken, women are broken, etc.

I also recommend The End of America by John Price (very religious angle to the decline) and Mark Steyn's After America.

I first found out about this book after seeing it on the "also bought" list for Helen Smith's "Men On Strike".

It has been many years since I have read a book that helped me as much as this one did. Throughout my life, I have always worked in retail sales and have been very good at what I did. But about two years ago, I started noticing that it is impossible to get a full-time job in retail anymore. Every single employer has cut their non-supervisory positions down to less than 32 hours in order to avoid the costs associated with the Employee Retirement Income Security Act and the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, two laws that force employers to pay benefits to all "full-time" workers. With some small stores, the situation is even worse as the minimum wage law has driven the number of hours down even further, to 15-20 instead of 32. If the economy was stronger, maybe these laws could be overcome and we would once again see full-time jobs available but with the FED printing money on an unprecedented scale there is really no chance of that happening.

I have been terribly angry about this for years and have tried to get around the laws by working two jobs. I have sometimes gone in at the first job at 9:30 a.m. and worked until 2:30, then left and gone to the other job at 5 pm. and worked until 10 p.m. This made me absolutely miserable as it resulted in me having no quality free-time at all. However, I kept doing it because I was determined not to let the government prevent me from working.

In the past few months, I've realized that I was making a mistake. Instead of fighting against the laws, I should accept them and learn to see the bright side of it.

Mr. Clarey does a good job of making his case for the coming decline. There is an undertone of angst, with Aaron pointing to the US Presidential election of 2012 the turning point from hope to resignation. I agree with his sentiments entirely. The data has been validating the existing decline and forecasting its inevitability for some time. As Clarey mentions in the book, once America's voters made it clear that they had no intention of giving up their freebies, the die was cast. There just aren't enough voters amongst the "productive class" to accomplish any kind of reversal of the decline. So don't fight it, enjoy it.

If you are still in High School, College, or a recent graduate of either, you should definitely buy and read this book. Knowing what the future looks like will help you make better decisions about how to spend your time today.

So do as Aaron suggests: Enjoy the decline! He presents many ways to do just that. He also walks the walk. I envy his minimalist approach.

I'll start out by saying that I really believe, for obvious reasons, that America is in serious decline, and that it will eventually descend into near-anarchic condition. I thought that the author (Captain Capitalism, who's blog I often read) might be a kindred spirit. I was wrong. He has the decline and its trajectory correct, but his solutions only apply to unmarried MEN under the age of about 40. Furthermore, the solutions smack of narcissism, nihilism, and amorality, the three human traits that produced the mess that America has become.

He recommends avoiding marriage, avoiding children, and living a very minimalist lifestyle more suitable for young males who don't mind sleeping rough. He recommends making friends so that your band can protect itself from other gangs while marauding and possibly stealing things from other people. He sees suicide as a final solution when all else fails. He suggests that you leave the country if you can find one more free and better suited to your needs.

On the plus side, he has quite a few good survival suggestions which are applicable to anyone in dire straights. He cites some pretty good resources for researching survival techniques and for researching the country you might plan on fleeing to if you are so inclined. There are some suggestions for asset protection in case the government decides to confiscate your wealth (a distinct possibility).

The problems with this philosophy are obvious. 50% of us are married, most of us happily. A majority of those families already have children who, along with their wives and husbands, they would never abandon. Many own homes that are fully paid for and would never consider moving to another country.
