New Utopia

[Editor's note: In early April email from Paul Rosenberg brought the following description of the New Utopia project. We print it because we believe some of our readers may find it of interest.

Rosenberg titled this piece "A New PT Haven—If You Want It." When asked what "PT" stands for, he wrote:

"The term PT stands for Perpetual Traveler, and was originated by Harry Schulz, International Financial Consultant. These people (and I am not one of them) scatter their citizenship, residence, bank accounts, and income sources among several nations, with neither their persons or assets never able to be seized as the property by any government." Two years ago FNF published New Country Project Profile, written by Marc Joffe for the New Country Foundation. See Formulations Vol. IV, No. 4 (Summer 1997), <www.freenation .org/a/f44j1.html>.

Right now, the greatest PT development of our time is underway in the Caribbean. A new, PT-friendly city/state is being built. The name of the city is New Utopia, and it is being built on platforms in very shallow water (4–20 meters) on the Grand Cayman Ridge.

If you've read Ayn Rand or Robert Heinlein (as almost all of us have), you know the philosophy that is driving this project, and you will also understand why this city will be a more hospitable location for PTs than any other place on the planet. We are under no illusions that this city will be heaven on earth, but we are relatively certain that it will be the best place for productive people that has existed in a long time.

We already have hundreds of citizens, several developers, a group of doctors that want to run the greatest and freest medical facility on earth, a communications company ready to install an all-fiber network and turn the city into a cyber-haven, plus continual information requests from productive people worldwide. We've had literally millions of visits to our web site. We've been featured in newspapers worldwide, and on dozens of television and radio programs. The people who are involved with this project are among the most respected and capable in their fields. This is not a pie-in-the-sky effort; these are serious, competent people who are seriously interested in living without restraint.

The type of wide-open opportunity that exists in New Utopia is something that has not existed in a long time. Unlike our great-great-grandparents, none of us have been around as a new city or state was founded, being built where nothing previously existed. Think about it—opportunities abound for anyone with initiative enough to build something themselves. And just as importantly, freedom exists there. No oppressive regulations or taxes. So long as you keep your agreements and don't hurt anyone, there is no one that will be telling you what you may or may not do. You will be free in New Utopia.

The big question is whether or not we will be able to pull this off. Everything we are doing is within the bounds of international law, and only one real need faces us: numbers. We need people and we need money. Do you want to have a place where you can be free? Where you can come and go without being treated like a fugitive slave? Would you like to live in a place where all of your neighbors are honest, competent, productive people, and where there is no government constantly scheming new ways to get into your bank accounts?

If so, we need you to get involved. Do whatever you can. Tell your friends, become a citizen, contribute something, buy a condo, invest in one of the companies that is building the city. Do whatever you want to—but do something! An opportunity for freedom is being laid before you, and your choice is either to play dumb or to act like someone who values their life. If you want to live without chains, here's your chance!

Go to the New Utopia web site <> and get the details, then get in gear. This may be the only serious opportunity of this kind that you will ever see; and the only thing that threatens to kill it is a lack of action. D
