Are the any other individuals here whom are considering moving to New Hampshire or have already done so in the name of The Free State Project?

This place seems very libertarian, so I wouldn't be surprised.

:/ Dunno, had they adoped Bitcoin as their official currency along gold, silver, and other scarce commodities?

Also, I am underage, so not possible. xD This is the first time I hear about it. Is it a direct democracy? It sounds like so. Cheesy

If I was in the US I would already be in New Hampshire.

Did you see one of the latest videos where someone got arrested for wearing a hat the man in robes didnt agree with?

No its not democracy. Its a movement to get rid of the state completely and setup a voluntary society or at least make government as small as possible.

And a direct democracy killed Socrates for corrupting the youth and for not believing in the gods!

Huh??

I guess you think a true democracy is good. Democracy is the system designed to take away the power from the people while making them think they still have it. Democracy is an authoritarian system.

Democracy is when three men and two women have a vote, and decide to legalize rape, and the rape victims just have to accept it because the decision was made democratically.

But Direct Democracy is one intellectual step on the journey from "Representative" Democracy to Libertarianism to Voluntarism.

Democracy is just another excuse to control people. A much more elaborate and efficient excuse than "ordered by god", but still, an excuse.
If politicians themselves really believed in democracy ideals, we would already have direct democracy everywhere, since current technology renders it feasible. But I don't know of any direct democracy government anywhere...

I wonder though if direct democracy would have less bad economic incentives than representative democracy. Maybe secession would be easier in such context what would allow for smaller governments... but on the other hand, economic-illiteracy might bring destructive labor laws, regulations and "soak-the-rich" policies...
Does anyone know if somebody has ever wrote a good praxeological comparison between direct and representative democracies?

Oh please read what a direct democracy is and why it is better than a representative democracy. :/ I believe you misunderstood me.

The other alternative would be a consensus system. What is your opinion?

Voluntarism: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voluntaryism

I have no problem if a group of people decide to organize themselves in a democratic way, for example a cooperative business. I think its fine and it can work.

But it is very different a voluntary association or organization run by a democratic system, where I can leave the group at any time if I am not happy with how it is managed, than having a democratic system imposed by guns (which is basically a democratic government). A democratic government is soft facisms.

There is also a Southeast Liberty Project which has more or less settled on Tennessee as its home state.  The only web presence they have is on facebook: http://www.facebook.com/southeastlibertyproject.
