So I had this idea. Not that I think it would work how I would hope but I just wanted to bounce it around and see where it lands. So you read in the history books about how all this sovereign territory was bought up by nations back in the day. I think the last time a piece of territory was bought was about 100 years ago by the US if my research is correct. It is still legal for sovereign territory to be bought, it just simply isn't done. (Stingy bastards) I've talked to many people about what they think about being forced into this kind of indentured servitude we live in today and many would find it to be a dream come true to escape that. If everyone who thought that way pitched in $5, do you think enough money could be raised to buy a small country? Of course, the idea would have to be based on a solid foundation to catch people's eye. If a system could be worked out where this country could be lead by no government but the decisions of the people as a collective, well, do you think it would be an idea people would contribute towards? I keep on thinking about how technology has completely changed the game and if all the citizens could have a way to cast votes on the fly for the things they are for or against in the country, I think it would make for a very interesting result. The things that the votes are over 50% in favor for will be done and only funded by the people who voted for them. I think the idea of optional taxation would be revolutionary in itself. I don't know. Obviously this idea needs work but I think you guys get the idea of what I'm getting at. Besides working out the details, do you think such an idea is possible?
