Citadel, Glenn Beck’s Independence, USA, PayPal’s Thiel lead right’s utopian experiments
Mr. Beck’s project is similarly conceptual.
The Citadel’s organizers claim on their website they already have purchased a small parcel of Idaho land and that as of last December more than 200 individuals and families have paid a partially refundable $208 application fee to reserve space for the project.
Given that III Arms — the startup firearms company intended to fund the community and provide employment to its members — reportedly has yet to build a factory and only registered with Idaho’s secretary of state in August, it’s unlikely that development will begin in earnest anytime soon.
“Much remains to be decided,” said a recent post on the Citadel’s blog. “The III Arms Company will provide the initial financial base to get started, but beyond that, those who move to the Citadel will need to bring work or income with them or have employment with a current business already arranged. We aren’t going to paint a rosy, unrealistic picture of what is needed. We aren’t in this to ‘sell’ something. We are in this to build the community we want to live in. It’s not going to be easy, and it’s not going to be simple.”
