Import saidI love how ppl are like "just move somewhere else"
lol, as if it's just that easy. The OP can just snap his fingers and move...
Would someone suggesting he just up and move.... be so kind as to tell him how the FUCK he will do that?
Will u elaborate on the visa processes of various western countries, the money and time involved, setting him up with a bank account, tax IDs, place to stay, transportation, employment, social network, etc. ?
I mean, he should just move! duh.
Human history is full of examples of flight to avoid persecution & oppression. People leaving their wealth, possessions & careers behind, even family. The early European colonization of North America heavily reflected economic, political & religious hardships in the refugees' homelands, a pattern that continues today.
It shouldn't be that way, but the reality often compels otherwise. Relocation should be a last resort, but neither should it be removed as an option to consider, despite the many difficulties.
