Voluntary (Country/Confederacy/Commonwealth/Society) of TBD

I'm posting recent Twitter conversations here as a way to facilitate discussion of the idea to form a voluntary country. I look forward to knowing your thoughts!

@libertysnippet why would you want to start a country? countries imply governments :P #tlot

    @libertypile Thanks- good question. Absolutely no govt- 100% voluntary, could opt out. By country I mean community org, not chaos. #tlot

    @libertypile @georgedonnelly and I discussing potential for a "Voluntary Republic of NH" - I agree "known universe" a little big. :) #tlot

@libertysnippet For what it's worth, what you're describing isn't a republic. It might be a commonwealth, though, and maybe a confederacy.

    @libertysnippet Basically, a syndicate of DRO's w/ agreed upon standards.

    My reply to Brad, April 15, 2009
    @bradspangler Thanks! I agree but like country term since resonates w/my friends. Do you have ideas for what to call this "country"? #tlot

    Brad's reply to me, April 15, 2009
@libertysnippet Personally, I don't like the idea of using statist terminology as it obscures essential theory IMO. Your mileage may vary.

@libertysnippet How about a country with Founding Mothers instead, let's see how that turns out vs. a male-driven system.

    My reply to Laura (peacechicken) April 15, 2009
@peacechicken Does that mean you're volunteering? Welcome, Laura! #tlot #voluntaryism
