n this video, Luke Rudkowski of WeAreChange gives you the latest breaking news on Bitcoin Jesus Roger Ver new project that will create a new country based on the principles of voluntarism and the NAP non-aggression principle.
This is Luke Rudkowski of WeAreChange here at the Nexus conference in Aspen Colorado. I am here with a lot of amazing speakers who have many incredible ideas, and one of those with great ideas is the one and only Roger Ver. Roger is transitioning from being Bitcoin Jesus to the creator of a new country that is “not a country.”
To be fair, we’re trying to create a noncountry. For anyone who’s read a book by David Friedman called The Machinery of Freedom, we are working to implement those ideas in reality. We’ve already raised more than a hundred million US dollars, and we’re working on figuring out the appropriate way to allow the public to participate as well. I think we’ll raise over half a billion dollars.
We’re going to approach different governments around the world and ask them to sell us some of their land and grant sovereignty on that land. Then we’ll set up a free society where the main rule is simply to not aggress against other people. The non-aggression principle put into practice and so we’re going to have the world’s freest noncountry in the entire world.
It’s a fascinating thing you know, it’s in the works, and it’s happening. We’ve already started some negotiations with a couple of different countries. We were pleasantly surprised just how interested they were.
I was going to ask you how is the process of starting your kind of sovereign territory. You were talking about this during your speech. It is going to be based on the principles of non-aggression on voluntariness. How do you even get started in that process and obviously you can’t get can’t get into great details but what kind of agreements are you trying to work out with certain countries?
The idea is for them just to sell us the land and say you guys do what you want with it. We will probably have to make some concessions. We’ll probably have to have promised them that we won’t export any drugs to the original country, no nuclear weapons, and things like that. For the most part, this is going to wind up being the freest country in the entire world. Look around the world, the freer the country is the more economic prosperity they have. So not only is it going to be the freest country in the world. Pretty quickly it’s been going to become one of the wealthiest countries in the world as well. It will be a noncountry to be clear. No taxes and no government whatsoever everybody will deal with everybody else on a voluntary basis.
It’s just kind of like a Hong Kong China kind of relationship that you’re looking forward to establishing with another country.
The devil is always in the details. Hopefully, we can have an even better deal than that of China and Hong Kong since their 99-year lease is up. Hopefully, this will be permanent, forever, and a good deal for everybody involved.
How do you even go about some of this? Do you need some rules, some deadlines, how will this operate?. How do you decide who you will allow into the noncountry? What are some of the basic provisional ideas that you’re looking to incorporate into this new country that’s not a country?
So the property owners themselves will decide who’s allowed on their property and who’s not. We will set up the initial Constitution with the fundamental rules and you can kind of think of it like a homeowner’s association that lays out the ground rules and then everybody has to abide by that forever more. That’s going to be the idea and off to the races from there.
