FREEDOM CAN GO VIRAL.
On September 12, 2017, Respvblica.com launched as a news and commentary site. We did so in order to provide a platform to writers, reporters and opinion leaders who value the truth above all else and who hold dear the truth that people deserve freedom of thought, speech and action, so long as their speech and actions are not designed to harm others.
We have long seen Respvblica.com as the seed of an even bigger idea, however. What if, we have wondered, people all over the world could become citizens of Respvblica, as the first credible virtual nation, dedicated to developing and preserving individual liberty.
We live, after all, in an age of Jihad, when virulent ideas have been promulgated by entities which began without any land mass, but called themselves nations, nonetheless. What if our nation—Respvblica—also were free from the notion that a land mass is essential to nationhood? What if we invited people all over the world to remain citizens of the countries in which they live, while also holding dear their allegiance to a virtual nation that, as we grow, can offer them online learning about liberty, best in class legal representation to assert their rights to free speech and the pursuit of happiness, as well as the power of a growing citizenry to obtain preferred pricing on goods and services, all around the world? What if being a citizen of Respvblica, once properly funded, also meant being protected from harm by the collective ability of our citizens to pressure (in more and more effective and strategic ways) those individuals, entities or governments who would deny one of us our fundamental human rights?
Ultimately, that is what Respvblica.com can become—a nation of hearts and minds, around the globe, united in the belief that human beings must be free to develop and communicate their ideas without interference and to become everything they were meant to be.
In success, Respvblica.com will be made up of citizens all over the world. And, then, we will have fulfilled our promise:
“Now, freedom lives everywhere.”
Become a Citizen. Support the Nation.
As our nation evolves, citizens will have access to private content and all the rights and privileges of citizenship.
