Galt’s Gulch Chile

For those of you who have not read “Atlas Shrugged” Galt’s Gulch is a mythical place where the last capitalists take refuge from a tyrannical and corrupt socialist state.

Well it seems to be a myth no more. A group of wealthy libertarians (or at least soon to be wealthy libertarians) have created a private luxury community in a lovely valley in Central Chile. Doesn’t strike me as a place for rugged individualists looking to create a capitalist paradise from scratch by the sweat of their own labor as described in the book, but all the same the place looks to be a nice place where liberty minded people could gather and enjoy the fruits of their prior labors.

The place is not cheap. Each lot of 1.25 acres or 0.5 hectares costs $75,000, and I suspect the target market will be folks who are going to spend a great deal more money on luxury accommodations. Nothing wrong with that I suppose, but that isn’t really what I am looking for. I suppose that is the problem. Everyone talks about how they want a self-sustaining farm away from all the chaos and noise (and perhaps hidden from the prying eyes and greedy hands of a corrupt socialist government), but they also want wifi, good roads, top-notch medical care, restaurants, shopping, utilities, etc. Its only natural to want to have your cake and eat it too.

Check it out. Would love to hear what others think!

    I wouldn’t ever move to such a place (I don’t like “libertarians”), especially after reading the blog of one of the main people there.

    Most libertarians are ok (I am biased however since I consider myself a libertarian), but the political movement has gone off the rails particularly the Libertarian Party.
