Say a british guy saves up £2000 after several years and isn't sure what to spend it on.
Home appliances, apocalypse survival supplies, home defence items, a 3D-Printer that will totally not be used to help make important things after the apocalypse wink wink, a waffle-maker, a suit or fast running shoes or clothes that could attract a woman, weights, a treadmill, a house to buy/rent, any of that stuff.
What should he spend his money on for maximum self-improvement and to maximize the chances of his survival?

Not to expend, but to save it when the time comes to invest.

He should invest in a PR representative, who can tell him "Your opinions are ass, and how you present them are even more ass" to work on his receptivity toward his audience.

How will he know when it's investing time, and what investments should be made?

Yeah because how much someone on social media likes you is just so much more important than a waffle iron and doomsday survival supplies. Want to fight me in smash bros melee netplay some time? Fox only. Final destination only. No items except Pokeballs on medium.

Putting people to make money for you.
Let me translate; assuming you are the average background pony and your resources are scarce, the right course of action might be you take the role of the middle man. For example, you promote yourself as a contractor specialized in room painting, then your task is to find people who will do that job "off the books" while you collect the big money from the customer.
To put it bluntly, you'll become the exploiter and the recipient of profit, just moving your tongue.

Basically banking/investment with minimal steps. Although you do have to do some work getting it all set up and be nice and easy if that's the goal.
>>2473
Right now you have 2000 in tradeable Time/Space/Hardwork. The obvious thing is to get something that provides more Time/Space/Hardwork.
Take the humble house plant, this one for example grows tomatoes.
It needs four things.
Water, Sunlight, Good Soil, and not getting fucked up by other shit.
Each of those has a cost to them. In Time, Space, and Hardwork.
So you have the plant and now it's eating into your funds.
One thing you can do is sell its fruits.
If the amount gained by selling the fruits exceeds the cost of having the plant you can do this 'forver' (if the price NEVER changes).
You are using your Time and Space and Hardwork to harvest it and take care of it.
If the plant provides even more (or the price is greater) you can be the 'middleman' and hire someone to do the task for you.
The Plant, harvester, and market (the buyers) are who you are getting more Time/Space/Hardwork stuff from.
The harvester gets a cut of the Time/Space/Hardwork stuff, and you get some more for seniority and possible experience (whatever, the little things can add up, being nice at least not a dick is a 'free' service that pays off in the long run). Maybe even social interaction. Maybe he is doing the work so you teach him what your secrets are for having a successful plant (that might be part of his price).
If not does the plant provide worth in other aspects? For you, or for others?
Can you sell that aspect for others making it of interest? (Yes, yes you can.) (To market in this hypothetical name each of the plants and give it a smiley face tag, make a video series about these plants, detail the life and trials they go through. The story. The little things no one really considers. Some random bullshit.)

Now the big question is if this is a positive, negative, or neutral sum game. In reality it's a mix of all of them.
Positive sum, is when you do a thing and everything is better for it. Everyone wins.
Negative sum, is everything is where everyone is a loser.
Neutral sum, is it shuffles around a bit but nothing happens, it's sustainable.

Corps and how they drain you dry: They have one main goal to make money (Time/Space/Hardwork and accumulate it). The question is how ethical do they want to be with it? The answer should be to the fullest extent, but...
The shitbag company makes bags of fertilizer. They also give zero fucks about anyone. Fully fucked in the head. They play a simple game.
Positive sum going inward and upward only. If the peons get anything whatever. If the market gets anything whatever.
The fullest extent is to maximize the positive sum in one direction. The fewer metrics they use (indentured servant happiness, how much the average payer will pay ect ) the more immoral they act.
If they use ALL the metrics everywhere it's not necessarily good, but it's at least not bad. (PublicRelations is also another currency they deal in.)
The fewer competitors the less they have to spend over Time, and Space, and Hardwork competing.
Politics is just another branch and market to break into.

>okay whatever I have 2000 intergalactic space mumbo jumbo so what?
You can trade something small for something bigger/better.
Remember Sell High Buy Low.
Now various circumstances can push people to buy High for any number of reasons. Maybe a Time constraint, or a Space constraint, or a Hardwork constraint.
Whatever it is it's a Problem and you have their Solution.
What you want can be different. It can be Time/Space/Hardwork, their friendship, loyality whatever.
Most of the time you can get just about everything at once.
Reciprocity is one hell of a drug. "I'm sure you would have done the same thing for me."
Many many people like perfectly legal drugs, such has the warm fuzzy feeling of removing their debt, and the cold creeping itching that keeps them up wondering about the guy that helped them once. What if at some point they could help that guy somehow...
Bam, you got 'em. Now is it ethical?
Ehhhh, kinda sorta. Talking at all is kinda sorta ethical most of the time. They get a burst of neuro chemical stuff for being a good person and you get something too.
Is it worth it?
If they paid for it then yes.

Fuck. Someone mentioned dildos.

Anyway, been thinking about getting a gun. What's on the table and legally purchaseable in the UK?

/mlpol/ is not your legal counsel. iirc, though, it's easier to get a shotgun than other types of weapons. Again, look up the laws for yourself.

Believe me, it's tempting. What should a "Escape to America" plan look like, if it has to include getting a cheap house and gun in a redpilled state with minimal nigs?

Well, first it should be a thorough plan. Look at a number of enticing possibilities and weigh their merits. Next vacation you have, go to where you want to settle and meet some people so you have some contacts. Unless if you want a very basic job I'd recommend looking around for employment prospects too.

I'd want to leave some contacts back in the UK as well and keep up with them. My Irish ancestors who immigrated to the U.S. donated to the smuggling of arms into Ireland for its liberation. I can see a similar situation for the UK in the future but I don't have a lot of confidence in modern generations' competence.

An online artist or game developer could probably live anywhere as long as it wasn't too expensive, right?
What's a redpilled source on the merits of different American places? My goal is to live in a safe, redpilled, and nigger-free American town or countryside where I can own a decently sized home and own all the guns I can afford.

Allow me to elaborate. Land in Texas averages ~$5k/acre (outside city limits, which is how you want because many counties dont impose building codes and shit), and for another $2k you can get an 8x8.5x20' storage container theres a reason it's a /diy/ meme so for ~7k+ fixtures n shit and some time/effort, you can wind up with an acre of land and a cottage you can live out of with minimal expenses. Then, it's just a matter of having gainful employment and you can save up and build your own house.
Further, Texas is the 'buckle' on the 'bible belt' (overwhelmingly Christian states spreading out east and west). And, assuming you dont have the capital to set yourself up immediately, you might already know a guy who can give you a hand up ^_~

That sounds unrealistically good. What's the catch?
also, isn't Texas full of Spanish or Mexican idiots?
and what is gainful employment?

>Mexicans
Of course there are, but they're everywhere. I'm serious, anywhere that there is demand for labor, there are Mexicans. That it's just over the border doesn't help matters, but that's just one more reason to aim for outside city limits. There are VERY few rentals available outside the city, and most mexicans arent property owners.
The catch is that you would have to hide your power level. Old-time country folk dont take kindly to talk like "Hitler did nothing wrong" and such, and Israel is generally well regarded. Having said, there is very little tolerance for lefty bullshit, which is gonna make things interesting in the next 5-10 years. Texas is one of several states that has distinguished its self in recent years because of the otherwise strong state economy, and alot of people are leaving lefty hellholes to take advantage. The consequence is that the political balance is shifting, particularly in the major cities. Over time, Texas will inexorably shift blue, as it has already become a purple state. Having said, if liberals are able to surpass conservatives in the state and attempt to enact leftie policies (gun restrictions, for example), you could not find a better place to stand your ground. I mean, Texas is where the phrase "come and take it" was first coined.
Texas is also one of the largest producer of beef, chicken, and a number of other essential commodities.
The climate is pretty brutal though, just warning ya.
>gainful employment
Fancy way of saying "you earn more than you spend"
Also, it bears mentioning that I dont know what sort of prohibitions there might be for working and other things (like legally buying a gun) for immigrants.
Tbh, I'd focus on finding out what those prohibitions are or might be.

Most places in the South (doesn't even have to be the South, a lot of midwestern states) are fine, really, except where there's an active conflict (Virginia thanks to leftyfags in Richmond and the north) but I recommend looking by county instead of state, then skimming over respective state laws. Unless if you really want to live in the middle of nowhere or in a trailer park (although stereotypes are exaggerated, people who live there are usually low-IQ whites) then land will probably be more expensive than in Texas. If you're interested, though, property values are rising because of aforementioned exodus from lefty hellholes.

Yes and no. If one is relying on established sources and real estate brokers, then what you say is true. Having said, there are always exceptions. OP has a hard task if he really intends to migrate, but should he decide to there may be a dude or two who could offer assistance. Indeed, Texas might not be the best choice, but it's not the worst either.
