Ten Years On and Still Going Strong

The Free State Project of New Hampshire

The Free State Project—the planned migration of libertarians to New Hampshire—is now ten years old. While it has yet to gain 20,000 members as planned, 1,000 individuals have already moved to the live-free-or-die state, and the movement is clocking up numerous achievements. Rapidly, New Hampshire has become a liberty capital for the world, so to interview FSP President Carla Gericke recently was a great pleasure.

To listen in, click below (41 minutes, mp3) and please pardon some of the scratchy audio.

During the interview on the Stateless Man radio show, Gericke explained the two main events of the FSP, the Liberty Forum and the Porcupine Freedom Festival. These are perhaps the two largest libertarian gatherings in the world, and the Liberty Forum is in Nashua, New Hampshire, this month from the 23rd to the 26th. You’re going to want to be there!

To get a better sense for the Free State Project, John Stossel gives a good overview below. And if you are even more eager, I recommend the documentary on the matter, “Libertopia.” Sovereign Solutions has also made an excellent film overview.
