Speaker: Jason Sorens, The Free State Project was founded in 2001 by Jason Sorens, then a Ph.D. student at Yale University. Jason was studying independence movements in other countries and thinking about his own beliefs. And it was time for libertarians to adapt. Jason published an article in The Libertarian Enterprise highlighting the failure of libertarians to elect any candidate to federal office and outlining his ideas for a migration movement that Jason believes continues an American tradition of political migration, which includes groups such as Mormon settlers in Utah, Amish religious communities and the “Jamestown Seventy”, an earlier effort to influence the politics of a particular state through deliberate migration. Jason’s essay eventually became the founding document of the Free State Project. In it, Jason proposed a mass migration, a voluntary resettlement of 20,000 Libertarians, anarchists, anarcho-capitalists, pacifists, even freedom-minded Democrats and Republicans, to a single, low-population state, a place they’d have the electoral power to transform it from the inside.
