It is best to go through life with no ambition whatsoever. You really ought to spend your days by refusing to take any initiative at all. It is best to live without gumption and to be glad of it.
You never signed on for an existence of wage slavery, so you really shouldn’t lift a finger more than absolutely necessary. You will not prosper in this world no matter what, so you must not ever give the do-gooders the satisfaction by even trying. Unless you have the right bloodline, you would have never succeeded anyway – so don’t even bother. You might as well sit this one out.
In this humanitarian tyranny, where your labor ultimately enriches others, the only way of preserving your liberty is to only work the absolute minimum for survival. All that eagerness and earnestness will only benefit someone else anyway. All that busy and bustle is only going make another person prosperous. In a totalitarian democracy, the only way to survive is to do as little as possible – because you must never give the government one extra cent of tax revenue. You should remain completely lazy for no other reason than to keep a multinational corporation from making a profit off your efforts. When your efforts are going to be used to maintain the community, you must do the least in life – no matter the personal privations. Better to go through life deprived of possessions, than denied freedom.
It would be better to live in absolute squalor than to allow your tax receipts to go toward the welfare of another citizen. It would be preferable to live in abject poverty than to permit a nickel of your taxes going to feed some hungry child. A superior man would rather remain absolutely destitute than tolerate his payroll withholding being used to provide another person with healthcare. A true individualist would rather remain completely impoverished than to consent to the revenuers taking of another penny for public schooling. An independent mind would prefer to end up as a lonesome hobo rather than become complicit in this forced altruism.
The more you are able to withdraw from society, the greater your personal sovereignty. Buy yourself a spot of land in the backwoods, build yourself a cabin, grow as much of your food as geography allows, barter for any necessities that you cannot produce yourself. But if you should ever find that you still have some pluck and grit, then kindly keep it in your pants.
