No back-up plan.

Via Didact:

Not too long ago, two friends of mine were talking to a Cuban refugee, a businessman who had escaped from Castro, and in the midst of his story one of my friends turned to the other and said, “We don’t know how lucky we are.” And the Cuban stopped and said, “How lucky you are? I had someplace to escape to.” And in that sentence he told us the entire story. If we lose freedom here, there’s no place to escape to. This is the last stand on earth.
— Ronald Wilson Reagan, from the speech, “A Time for Choosing”, October 27th, 1964
That speech was made a long time ago and a lot has happened since then, none of it conducive to proving Reagan’s fears groundless.
Australia has been following a similar precipitous path, and there ain’t too many spots to escape to down there on the bottom of the world.

    People. at a certain level the fight against the regressives and the totalitarian cesspool gets very ugly. I decided two years ago that older men with less to lose must come to the front line, and
    as part of this fight for freedom of speech and expression, I use my own name.
    I am totally opposed to Islam, and I use the expression Death to Islam.
    I have on my email inbox yesterday a personal death threat with mutilation accompanying.
    A quick forensic assessment is that it is written by a New Zealander who I think is aged about 55′
    Shocked?
    This civil war is already here, death threats are part of it.
    Get ready to come face to face with your neighbour. Facebook and web chatter will avail us nothing.
