    Ohh. Yeah, these are the types of places that will hire Black Water (Xe Corp) as private cops and other security forces.
    This is an adventurer's project: feudalism! The better it works, the more money will be involved and more land will be controlled.

    * Honduras: Military Coup Engineered By Two US Companies** : Information Clearing House - ICH

    August 07, 2009 "Information Clearing House" -- I recently visited Central America. Everyone I talked with there was convinced that the military coup that had overthrown the democratically-elected president of Honduras, Manuel Zelaya, had been engineered by two US companies, with CIA support. And that the US and its new president were not standing up for democracy.

    Earlier in the year Chiquita Brands International Inc. (formerly United Fruit) and Dole Food Co had severely criticized Zelaya for advocating an increase of 60% in Honduras’s minimum wage, claiming that the policy would cut into corporate profits. They were joined by a coalition of textile manufacturers and exporters, companies that rely on cheap labor to work in their sweatshops.
    Ya'see? The ground for this has already been laid.

    It depends on who is setting these cities up, and how lawful they will actually be.
    I have a friend whose family owns a business in Honduras, and he travels back and forth between here and there, and he's one of the most decent nice guys I know. If it's people like him who are running things, it could very well be successful.

    I don't think Utah was ever "private". It first belonged to Mexico and then through cessation and treaty it became a US territory in 1848. Mormons arrived in 1847.

    This doesn't sound like it will end well.

    A few years ago the actress, Kim Basinger bought an entire town in Georgia and I've heard of other people buying towns as well.

    Yes, I'm talking about when the Mormons arrived. They were different and it was okay.

    Cities are Corporations. "Corporations are people" -Mitt Romney

    Therefore, cities are people.
