How To Start A New Country

Just read this inspiring article by @balajis! Here are some observations

“The beginning of wisdom is to call things by their proper name.”

The state is not a social affair, it is a parasitical organization (poorly) camouflaged as collective will.
Let’s not think about creating new states, nor governments, but new forms of Voluntary Governance.

is just as feasible today as Bitcoin was in 2008, the essential building blocks are ready, it “just” requires assembly and experimentation. New tech should help but it’s not the choke point.

Space colonization sounds more prestigious, but it will repeat the same land mistakes if the current “state mindset” prevails. Space exploration was curbed by governments, due to the economic calculation problem (contrary to mainstream narrative).

doesn’t need recognition from the FED for legitimacy, new countries won’t need recognition from the United Nations. Permissionless has to be a way of thinking for these endeavors.

Virtual communities are a promising way to bootstrap new countries in the physical world. Growing VR/AR economic activity through crypto based systems will be one of the most exciting ways to fund & found new countries. I can’t wait to participate!
