The issue of Liberland really inspires me even if Liberland itself is a bit of a joke that will probably never take off. It shows the huge demand for freedom across the globe even if it is splintered, culturally diverse, and a minority everywhere it is found. It is slick and well done (unlike this website 🙁 … )
How to unite that demand for Freedom, and bring it together for some useful purpose?
I still believe that the Find a Free Country concept of finding a prospective country that already exists with a positive business climate and open immigration and then moving to it enmass is better than other options out there (including the Free State–New Hampshire, Free Cities-Startup Cities, Free Texas/Scotland/Catalonia/etc., FreeBoats, or Liberland), but how to promote it? So far this has been a miserable failure.
Let us look at Liberland again: hundreds of thousands of people signed up over a one month period. No advertising, just viral. I have to think that the reason for this amazing interest/participation is the concrete offer being put forward: citizenship in a new county (regardless of whether the country will ever exist).
Perhaps what we need to do is take a step forward and provide people with something concrete as well. Not necessarily citizenship (since we are not proposing that), but a more “concrete” Membership vs the “ambiguous” Membership currently provided. Not just access to a website (that no one is interested in), but perhaps Membership in a Not-For-Profit Foundation/Trust with a clearly stated goal matching that of the Find a Free Country Project?
Then we can go and try to raise support and money because I need help. After the last hack attack the website is not performing correctly, and I just don’t know what to do. The hosting company I am using provides rather limited technical assistance, and since this an internal issue with my website, I am not sure they will help at all.
What is needed IMHO:
* An independent hosting system,
* somebody with technical skills to manage it (not me),
* more advanced marketing efforts to get more members,
* more advanced solicitation efforts to get more financial contributions,
Is there interest in this project, and if so what is the best way of promoting it?
