It is surprising that the Free State Project has not generated more interest and support here at FR. The last thread mentioning it degenerated rapidly into a discussion of Somalia and of course the ubiquitous "libertarians are druggies" posts.
I had come to accept as accomplished fact that liberty was in its death throws and no chance existed for its revival in my lifetime but the FSP has given me some hope. The concept is sound and the project is doable. A dedicated minority can change the world, look at how the major religions got started not to mention political movements like socialism and communism. All we need to do is take one tiny state, one already with the proper leanings at that. I've been talking about this to friends and family about this and they all seem interested.

Nearly everyone I've talked to about it seems interested, including my wife, mom and many others. I won't make a commitment until I'm sure I can do it. The more I think and talk and read about it the more it seems very realistic, workable and desirable.
I'm going to work towards it in a very real way.
