Conclusions

Back to index … “The best compliment to a child or a friend is the feeling you give him that he has been set free to make his own inquiries, to come to conclusions that are right for him, whether or not they coincide with your own.” ~ Alistair Cooke This document is more than a business plan, or heavy white paper. This document, if we are successful, is never “written” – if we are successful, it will be edited, amended, rewritten, and the number of contributers will expand.

Lease Arrangements

Resiliently share this:

Back to index … “To obviate the essential tyranny (coercion) of political administration the proprietary authority, suitably organized, must extend its jurisdiction, and thus its revenues, by itself supplying police and other community services without coercion, out of its own revenues and properties, and thus raise its own values and voluntary incomes.” ~Spencer Heath, Citadel, Market, and Altar, 1946 The master lease for the Somali Free Port was modified by its co-author, Spencer MacCallum, for use with the Seasteading community.

Last day in Hocking County, this trip …

Resiliently share this:

Jim and I (Dan Sullivan) have surveyed some of the area. This morning we had a decent trek (small hike) through some property off of 664 – 17 acres, currently being used as a laser-tag site. It is likely outside our price-range, but it gave us a sense of what to expect.

News About Our Work We have engaged a public relations and marketing firm! Yay! Ken Holder and L. Neil Smith were kind enough to publish my essay, reviewing our work and plans. News Related to Our Work We learned today (3 July 2017) about a community project in the western part of Virginia.
