Free Cities Foundation
Our Foundation works with small territories that are adopting liberty-oriented policies to give citizens more choice in the rules that govern their lives.
Intentional communities are areas within a nation-state where residents share a common set of goals or values. These communities operate within the traditional state’s legal framework but their community rules mean they enjoy a higher de facto level of autonomy than would otherwise be possible.
The Free Cities Foundation supports the work of liberty-focused intentional communities.
A Prosperity Zone is a semi-autonomous territory within a nation-state that is administered by an operating company. Through streamlined administration, Prosperity Zones create conditions that encourage investment in high-tech industries and create quality jobs.
Prosperity Zones aim to offer citizens of the world more choice in the global “market of living together”. Through an agreement granting partial autonomy within a Host Nation, Prosperity Zones create a win-win situation for both their residents and their neighbors.
Free Private Cities
In Free Private Cities the relationship between City Operators and citizens is defined by a Citizen Contract. This ensures that rights and responsibilities of both the Operator and residents are clearly set out and protected. Residents pay a fixed, annual subscription fee to the Operator, who works to protect their life, liberty and property.
In Free Private Cities, people enjoy unhampered liberty provided they respect the rights of others and the simple community rules set out in the Citizen Contract. By simplifying governance in this way, Free Private Cities foster communities where residents cooperate peacefully and are free to live their best possible life.
