On his program last night, Beck revealed that his intention to "go Galt" is quite literal, unveiling grandiose plans to create an entirely self-sustaining community called Independence Park that will provide its own food and energy, produce television and film content, host research and development, serve as a marketplace for products and ideas, while also housing a theme park and serving as a residential community.
At the center -- in the middle of the lake that is itself larger than all of Disney Land - Beck (with the help of David Barton) will create a massive "national archive"/learning center where people can send their children to be "deprogrammed" and elected officials can come to learn "the truth."
The Dallas Observer reports that the planned community will be in Texas:Things are pretty bad in the US, but I am not sure that I am ready for a city run by Glenn Beck, though the idea of private cities is a great one. Let's hope Beck's move will launch others to think about and create private cities.
Beck doesn't specify where in Texas this community will be, whether it will be based near his Westlake home, or his Las Colinas studio, or on some of that farmland he bought.
Here's Beck describing his Galt's Gulch:
Note: The best plan, at present, that has been brought to my attention is one that is in the early stages of development in a South American country, by an individual who is much better versed in liberty than Beck.
