The Free State Project view of govt.?
« on: April 21, 2005, 06:32:35 pm »

How does the Free State Project view govt?  here's is my view of govt.:

The sole purpose of govt. is to maintian order. any thing which is either contary to maintaining order, or has no relevence to said purpose should be abolished.  The purpose of govt. is not to ban gay marriage. Although I believe it to be moraly wrong, I believe it is not the place of govt. to define morality.  The place of govt. is not to become overly powerful and thereby corrupt.  I believe that the system of govt. should be voleentary.   Another words the poppulation should be able to abolish any system of govt. and replace with another when ever it is deemed to be appropriate.

So my question is:  How does this view fit with the FSP view of govt.?

The FSP has no views.

The FSP is a Bus.

The FSP has a very nice mission statement.

The FSP welcomes you.

Please try not to get mud on the bus .

Welcome shotgun!

The FSP statement of intent seems to fit with your views:
Quote
I hereby state my solemn intent to move to the state of New Hampshire. Once there, I will exert the fullest practical effort toward the creation of a society in which the maximum role of civil government is the protection of life, liberty, and property.

Welcome to the FSP forums, shotgun.

If you ask your question to each of the 6500+ FSP particpants, you'll probably get 6500+ different answers.  There is no one view of government among the participants.  And there is not an FSP view of government because the FSP is really just a loose connection of individuals whose views are similar enough.

If you want to work towards reducing the role of government, then you should seriously consider joining the FSP.  Like Toowm said, the Statement of Intent seems to fit with your views.
