Hubert Jongen: I Immediately Saw the FSP as a New Possibility

"For a long time I have been interested in 'free state' projects – from the time I spoke with Mike Oliver in Las Vegas about the MINERVA project! Since then there were many others, but most of them disappeared.

"Then I found out about the Free State Project. I immediately saw this as a new possibility, using existing legal procedures.

"I became immediately enthusiastic when my friend André Lichtschlag (publisher of the excellent German libertarian magazine eigentümlich frei) proposed starting a similar project within the European Union. Soon we formed a small group, the European Freestate Project.

"So I hope that there soon will be two Free States from which libertarians can choose, one in the USA and one in Europe!"

Hubert Jongen is Chairman of Libertarian International and of Libertarisch Centrun Netherlands.

Sunni Maravillosa: The FSP Is Focused on Accomplishing Greater Freedom

"I remember hearing about the Free State Project back when Jason Sorens was recruiting feedback for the idea. Having heard of plenty of other 'let's form our own group' schemes, I smiled, nodded, and pushed the delete key, and expected to hear maybe one or two more things about the project at most. I'm delighted to say that I was wrong...I've been to a number of libertarian-oriented conferences, and read about many more. I know how argumentative and emotionally invested in being right some individuals can be. One of the first, and ongoing, surprises of the Grand Western Conference was how pleasant everyone I spoke to was. Nothing seemed to be about ego; the presentations and private conversations alike seemed focused on accomplishing the goal of greater freedom."

Sunni Maravillosa writes about personal freedom. Her blog is Sunni and the Conspirators.

Claire Wolfe: The FSP Gives Me Optimism

"If I were to describe in one word what I brought home from the Grand Western Conference of the Free State Project 'optimism' would be it … [And] I'm a born pessimist and a made cynic. I simply don't do optimism."

Claire Wolfe is a libertarian author and self-described "professional troublemaker."
