After months of hard work by the entire staff at Galt’s Gulch Chile (GGC) I am extremely pleased to announce to the world that Ayn Rand’s vision in her iconic book, Atlas Shrugged, has become a reality. It is unfortunate that the world has transformed much into what Rand had envisioned and the need for a place like Galt’s Gulch has become so urgent. But, since that is today’s reality we are very happy to offer the respite from the Western world of oppressive governments to freedom-minded people in which they can build a new, more prosperous community.
For those who haven’t been following the evolution of GGC, here is some background:
I left my home country of Canada in 2003 and just celebrated my 10th anniversary of being free from the Canadian Revenue Agency (the equivalent of the IRS in Canada) this year. My reasons for leaving weren’t just tax related, however. Just as I still write about today, my main reason for escaping was that I wanted to live in a place that was much freer. I subsequently traveled via sailboat, plane, train and automobile to nearly a hundred different countries, searching out places that had more social and economic freedom than the limited amount I had grown quite tired of up in the not-so-great white north.
