Former "Seasteaders" Come Ashore To Start Libertarian Utopias In Honduran Jungle | Co.Exist: World changing ideas and innovation
Jason Belich stashed this in Inspiration
850ish years ago, Henry the Lion, Duke of Saxony, gave a Free Charter to the town of Lubeck, which eventually founded the Hanseatic League and gave birth to the concept of a free market. Today, northwestern Europe is still among the most prosperous regions on earth, and the model they pioneered on the coast of the Baltic Sea has brought billions of people out of the darkness.
Kudos to Honduras for taking a chance on a very old and proven idea!
